I was playing with fluffy T. rex ideas.  I'm pretty pleased with this concept.  Plus there is a generic soldier for scale, so that's cool.

If its fluff were just a little longer, its arms would be entirely hidden, like the wings of a kiwi.

maybe i'm just holding on to nostalgia. some dinosaurs, like raptors, look badass with a full coat of feathers. but my main man t-rex; WHO WOULD BE SCARED OF THIS FLUFFY BASTARD?!?!

you, when you realized he was towering over you with rows of sharp teeth that can tear you open in a heartbeat.

Not this fluffy. Today the trex has a medium sized patch of feathers on its back, tail and hands. With scales covering its face with a throat pouch on its neck, there was naked skin (No scales or feathers) near its um.."butt" and stomach areas.
The 2018 trex is a mix of feathers scales and naked skin.

First point, this illustration is 4 years old and very out of date. Second point, current scientific thought actually has come back around to completely scaly T. rex. Feathers are no longer considered accurate.

completely scaly is just not possible

Not according to Bell et al 2017 rsbl.royalsocietypublishing.or… and both Scott Hartman and Mark Witton. Completely scaly is not only possible but is the most likely.

well if it is possible trex would something like elephant kind of hair on the top of his head. and arm areas.

What evidence do you have for this?

here is the evidence for everything suggesting trex hand some sort of feathers on its body

Hahaha yeah this is exactly what I thought you were referring to. Trey is a great guy and does his best but is not always up to date. Not only that but this video is almost a year old so it can also be out of date through no fault of his own.

are you aware that some news article used this picture as "evidence of a new siberian dinosaur" and than posted it to their website?

Is there any real evidence that says T-rex had feathers?
