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. Older T. rex Drawings ______2012_______ ______2012_______ ______2010_______ ______2009_______ ______2007________
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.
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.
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.
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.
