Tyrannosaurus rex 01 by JakeParker Tyrannosaurus rex 01 by JakeParker
That great tyrant lizard. Drawing this out of my head and felt like something was a little off. After looking at some skulls and other T-Rex art I did the second one, which I like a lot better.

T-rex probably didn't have feathers being the size that he was and also living the hot climate of the cretaceous but I think it'd be cool if there were some protofeathers sticking out of his head and neck.

T-Rex fact I came across: A T-rex eye is the size of softball. One of the largest eyes ever developed in the animal kingdom Ė past or present.

If Iím going to do a story thatís set in the late cretaceous, it better have a t-rex in it. Right? Story is coming along and I have a rough outline of it now.

Isn't there a theory that feathers weren't originally used for flying but rather for mating rituals and intimidation, additionally it allowed some to fly and that advantage was selected out by evolution untill you got birds... I'm not a dinosaur expert (far from) but those protofeathers could make sense :p

It's called a ZebraFD-502. Search around for them online, I've never seen them in stores.
