Alien T. rex

So I actually did this a ways back, some of you may have seen this already but I never officially posted it places. I wanted to see if I could distill all of the elements I found vital to the xenomorph from Alien 1979(Big Chap) and recreate them using the anatomy of a Tyrannosaurus. Like Big Chap is to a man, I wanted this to be seen like a corruption of the anatomy of a Tyrannosaurus. A notable characteristic of big chap was the elongated anatomy, all of its limbs and head were stretched. I did this where I found appropriate, notably the pelvic elements, because first and foremost big chap was designed as a perverse sexual monster. The design of Big Chap, and all elements that HR Giger has a hand in on Alien have been immensely inspirational to me. I feel no Alien film since has recaptured what made the alien what it was. All designs since, with the exception of the queen, have felt like they entirely missed the point. Merely shoving an alien head on a frenetic beast bereft of the biomechanical origins and erotic design traits. Its a real shame. Anyway, here's a T. rex.

Man you are taking my two childhood horriors and loves and combining them into something that scares the shit out of me and makes me want a toy of it at the same time. H.R.Giger would be proud.

Xenomorphs tend to follow the bone structure of their host T-Rex like birds have a large pelvis that extends and shapes their lower body. Question should be is his face mouth long enough to get past those jaws?

Looks kind of like a Xenomorph King.
It has a bigger head and more spikes though:…

The Xenomorph was inspired by the Parasaurolophus.

I really like the idea of a Xeno Rex, but it makes me think that other dinosaurs would make a more interesting anatomical or morphological design.
brachiosaurs and Quetzalcoatlus northropi sprang to my head first.

Now that I am thinking about this way too hard, an elephant. A xeno elephant.  That is something that would be very morphically weird.

:eager: by darkmoon3636So cool. Nice job, man
"XenoRex" would be a fitting name.

This is great.
I sure wish they made an Alien video game with an enemy like this one.
Or maybe a movie where this creature is the queen
