I based this illustration on the wonderful tyrannosaurus skeleton diorama at the Carnegie museum. If you are ever in the Pittsburgh area, definitely check out the newly renovated dinosaur hall at the Carnegie.
I always thought rexes had greysh brown bodies with some having green tint or brownish red and white and or brown stripes and males had red throat pouches and head crests and more feathers than females and they wer brighter head feathers like bright orange mixed with red and brown
Okay thanks, you see the reason why I asked is because we only have fossils, right? so how would colour, or even feathers for that matter be determinable? I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just a little confused. :/
To tell you the truth, I'm not too hot on the background either. I tend to leave backgrounds to a minimum so that the animals and their detail is the focus. Every once in a while I like to experiment, sometimes it works and other times not so much.
LOL. you would not believe it but your response made my day a bt brigther in the end of it... amazing picture, that's out of question! fantastic work! it only makes me think a bit... killed "trike" and two rexes with perfectly clean jaws?
