Tyrannosaurus rex by A V S TURNER
Clear

Currently unavailable for purchase


With recent discoveries (not least Yutyrannus huali), it seems the evidence that all therapods were feathered is piling up to the extent that we palaeo-artists must start thinking about redrawing a whole load of our previous images! Following recent discussions with several like-minded artists, I am now pretty convinced that in the next ten to fifteen years, we will find it more and more frightful to look upon bare-skinned therapoda. So, to save redrawing the next ten years’ work all over again, I am starting to treat feathers as my default integuement for all therapods, unless hard fossil evidence demonstrates otherwise. This quick Tyrannosaurus study is not a bad starting point and will form the basis of my next major painting. I have used both birds of prey and Grey Wolves as inspiration for the feather distribution and markings.
