Fluffy Rex by arvalis Fluffy Rex by arvalis
I was playing with fluffy T. rex ideas.  I'm pretty pleased with this concept.  Plus there is a generic soldier for scale, so that's cool.

Sorta too bad that its pretty agreed upon that they sported feathers of some sort.

No. But it is said that some dinosaurs are both warm and cold blooded at the same time. The sea Leather turtle is the only warmblooded reptile now

Do you mean too many feather or the fact they would have feathers (as so many paleontology shows have pointed out) ?

I somehwere read that more and more scientists believe that pretty much all dinos of this era had some sort of feathers...so it is maybe possible that they really looked like this. ;-)

We know that Carnotaurus did not have feathers, we found scales from the bull-like theropod.

I heard some time ago that there were some who believed that the Rex might have actually had plumage like this. I don't know if any of it has been confirmed or not... but... if it did... I imagine it would've look alot like this concept image.

Just glancing at it I though it was a frickin overgrown chicken. Paying closer attention it's a fluffy dinosaur. Not a chicken. Very good job though!

I really like the idea of T rex and other dinosaurs having feathers. :)

You did a wonderful job of texturing this animal! :D (Big Grin)

It sorta makes me think of a chicken (Hen specifically) the way it's face isn't feathered. It's almost a white silkie bantam, by appearance, that wooly T-rex...

Mmm.

My theory for fossilized imprints of Feathers, is that, perhaps, the Climate change in the Cretaceous period caused the animals in certain areas to develop a way to keep warm, and because Dinosaurs are related to Avians, the only way they could do this was to grow feathers.

The Feathers were only apparent due to natural selection - A Tyrannosaurus whose family migrated Northwards began to adapt a means of keeping itself warm when the somewhat-chilly but not very Snowy Winters of the Cretaceous came about.

But it's only a theory...

...But of course I could be exactly wrong.

The fact that the t-rex could be an ancestor to the chicken is now making a lot more sense now.
Who would've thought.
 correct me because I'm pretty sure that is mostly incorrect or inaccurate

T. rex is not the ancestor to chickens but it is related to the animals that became birds.

Yea, I been hearing the same thing. It would make more sense for those tiny arms.
Makes me wonder if they were larger wings but the bones or whatever they would be made from has either not been discovered or has never survived the fossilization

The feathers are a bit too long for my taste, and the ones closest to the head look a bit to straight to be non-pennaceous. The colouration of the feathers seems a bit too different from the colouration of the skin as well, how should this poor creature stalk his prey? :(

But from a purely technical standpoint it's very nice. And you have improved a LOT over the last 7 years it appears. :)

This is the way people seem to think that T-Rex may have actually looked; maybe not with that much feathers, but this is consistent with the idea that birds evolved from dinosaurs.

You can see the bird in this dinosaur. It actually freaks me out a bit because although dinosaurs don't actually frighten me (since I'm very unlikely to run into one), large birds certainly do. Birds will fuck your shit up in a heart beat if you so much as look at them wrong--don't be lured into a false sense of security by the feathers.

Keep in mind, all birds are dinosaurs so you probably run into them on a daily basis. Non-avian dinosaurs are wholly extinct though!
