Agreed, kind of, they can be cute, take a look at Blair Sampson’s art:
But then again, he can make Cthulhu look cute:
And I wouldn’t say this is exactly cute:

Deinonychus. Sepia ink, coloured pencils and gouache, sketchbook page. By Niroot Puttapipat:
"Inspired, of course, by birds of prey in general, I made a conscious effort of bulking up its feathers much more than my earlier attempts, and aiming for a yet smoother, more avian silhouette (it suddenly occurs to me how long ago I actually began this study, as it went on to form the basis for Marc’s Deinonychus portrait in the New Year greeting I completed back in January). I think perhaps its front third is fairly respectable, which perhaps is just as well, since that third eventually made its way upon a garment after some persuasion.”
Jinfengopteryx elegans by Hillary Esdaile:
"New Caledonian crows fashion sticks into harpoons and use them to snag tasty grubs out of holes and rotting wood. I wanted to draw a dinosaur using tools the same way, and I figured if any dinosaur was clever enough to figure it out, it would be a troodontid. So here is Jinfengopteryx elegans, a small troodontid from China that lived around 122 million years ago. This was my first serious foray into paleo art and though I admit I took some liberties with the flora, I tried to be as accurate as I could with the dinosaur. Jaime A. Headden helped me out a lot with the anatomy (many thanks!)”
