_Tyrannosaurus_ galorosmorgasboard...


The chief reason to draw Tyrannosaurs well is to show them being stomped all over by Pachyrhinosaurus.

But first, I must get to the point where I'm doing them well. Here's a smattering of the better ones I've done:

(Interestingly, the above image was nicked by a local tabloid without asking for permission. I do give permission, but I also ask that one asks before snagging my stuff and running with it. And I do respond favorably to offers of money.)


Jacky Lantern:

Huh. Looks a bit on the Brian Froud side of things to my mind.

*snap!* Chamberlain rex!

I've never seen a purple T. rex ... until I drew one in purple ink, no sketching, no pencil underneath, no white-out, no erasing, and no chance I could have started the damned animal somewhere on the page so I could fit the rest of it on the same page. (Purplish ink, 10 February 2006).

Astute viewers will note the feathers.

Yes, feathers on all the rexes! Why? Two words: phylogenetic bracketing.

Gif for you, because it was smaller than the JPEG, and better-looking.

That's the best jack-o-lantern I've ever seen.^^

Also, primitive tyrannosaurs were feathered (Dilong). We need not evoke the dark powers of the bracket to know that!
