Here's the mutant Ankylosaurus Info: Regulus R&D Code: D-28-477 Code Name: Regulus DNA Prime: Ankylosaurus
Based on the Ornithischia-Thyreophora. The skin of the Regulus' back is covered with thick plates or organic armor capable of deflecting projectile attacks. In combat, it rolls up its body and rams its opponent. However, the creature's soft underbelly and slow speed makes it vulnerable to well-placed attacks.

At over 40 feet long and 7-8 tons in weight, Tyrannosaurus rex (king tyrant lizard) was an impressive theropod; and postmortem the single most renowned dinosaur in modern human society. Having been discovered on American soil, T. rex could even be considered an American icon shoulder-to-shoulder with the bald eagle and Uncle Sam. However, T. rex was merely an animal. And in that respect, science trumps fandomism.
My reconstruction of T. rex reflects contemporary paleontology that would offend any T. rex fanboy. The recently named Yutyrannus huali was a smaller, albeit no less impressive, relative of T. rex. Three exquisitely preserved Y. huali specimens unearthed in China revealed fossilized plumage on this dinosaur, confirming feathers in large tyrannosaurs. I've heard a lot of "there still isn't direct evidence of plumage in Tyrannosaurus rex so it's still possible that T. rex wasn't feathered." Personally I consider that argument ridiculous, phylogenetically the odds are against T. rex fanboys retaining their scaly Godzilla and I feel no sympathy for them.
This reconstruction of T. rex was inspired by the turkey, and is a revised version of [link] which is if I remember correctly the first feathered tyrannosaur I have ever drawn. Factually, I've been depicting feathered tyrannosaurs for approximately a year now. Thus while Yutyrannus is an amazing discovery, it does not surprise me personally.
It's logical to hypothesize that tyrannosaurs behaved much like modern birds, not only on the basis of their revolutionized appearance but the relationship between birds and classic dinosaurs regardless. T. rex was obviously constructed to subdue massive prey as science has revealed, thus it can be difficult to translate the quirky behavior of a chicken or turkey to the language of an apex predator. Listen, fanboys. T. rex may have brooded it's offspring as fossil evidence has suggested, bringing food to the nest and disciplining roughhousing juveniles; T. rex may have been very inquisitive and playful as many birds are; T. rex may have mannered in a form similar to birds, stepping lightly and cocking it's head from side-to-side as it walked; T. rex may have clucked and screeched as opposed to the mammalian roars often attributed to it in the media; T. rex may have eyed prey like a hawk, waiting for the opportune moment to attack; T. rex may have danced and gobbled when attracting a mate like birds do. When the amusing antics of a bird are translated to Tyrannosaurus rex--if the concept of a mindless hypercarnivore can be dismissed, then--an oppressed beauty and rhythm can reveal itself through what was undoubtedly an amazing creature in it's own biological right.

Here's something u don't see everyday...a cross between an ape and a dinosaur Info: Kornephoros R&D Code: D-3a-001 Code Name: Kornephoros DNA Prime: Velociraptor
By restricting their evolution to a shape similar to that of primates, dinosaurs with human-like properties were devised. Using the genes of the Catarrhini group (humans, monkeys and apes), genetic manipulation was performed on the dinosaur DNA, altering muscles and skeletal framework. As a result, this modified species hunts systematically as a group, and exhibits some of the characteristics of the Catarrhini. Abilities: Extraordinary Strength Tremendous Jumps Able to hunt in groups
Kornephoros is in Dino Crisis 3 and owned by Capcom
... this is an old concept of a dragon that evolved to live as an marine animal. My first idea was to create something more like a sea serpent, as usually is done, but I was watching James Cameronīs "The Abyss" and I was wondering about a dragon that evolved from a flying creature, with wings turned to giant flippers. The bioluminescense was another feature that I thought could be interesting. I know that I have a lot of things to review, but I think itīs an interesting design, so I hope someday to revisit this idea.
