Saurian-Tyrannosaurus rex by arvalis Saurian-Tyrannosaurus rex by arvalis

Here is the new T. rex for Saurian, that dinosaur game I'm working on.  We redesigned our rex after new information came out and some less than gentle prodding from yours truly.  During the redesign process I must have pumped out dozens of design ideas.  So I am extremely satisfied with this design, its become hard to see any other T. rex now haha.  Anyways I hope you guys dig it.  Also I should be able to start posting new work again soon, so get excited.  Follow the links below to find out more information on Saurian and our new T. rex design.

Im gonna miss this feathered t-rex design in saurian, it is one of my favorites and it looks so damn cool. But your recent redesign is fantastic, the t-rex is definitely not one of my favorite dinos but your passion for them is inspiring.

the feathers in the fossil of a T-rex was actually never proven.

however,  new evidence has surfaced in fossilized neck skin that shows the T-rex was indeed covered in scales.

feathers are nothing more than a pipe dream for evolutionists who want the crackpot bird theory to hold more ground with a lack of real evidence.

I however do enjoy your art.

This is 3 years old. I know that feathers are no longer likely for T. rex. However we know for a fact that many dinosaurs are feathered. We have tons of evidence for feathers. For someone to think otherwise, they would have to be very dumb.

I like the idea you had of making this but personally i find the feathered trex a little underwhelming and not very intimidating, also it would be cool if you could add albertosaurus to the list of dinosaurs for saurian, I picked up the game recently its a bit bare but its beautiful.

I'm not talking about the hypothesis itself. 

I'm alluding to your constant barrage of the same comment copied and pasted to every interpretation of the animal. Even if it was prior to the Bell et al. paper. 

There is of course, nothing wrong with questioning the individual for their reasoning on why they drew the creature with plumage. At the time, the resources we had lead us to bring up the hypothesis on the matter, and plenty of scientists were actually convinced by the hypothesis. 

But now, that very idea is being questioned as time goes on. Almost everyone overlooked the fact that it was a hypothesis. THAT is why many people reconstructed the animal possessing feathers.

nothing really, more just "heavily hinted at"
and even then it would probably just have about 10-20% feathering maybe even less

Really? Because from what I've seen there's at lest a 97% chance that T. rexes were entirely scaly.

like i said 10-20% max about 0-5% minimum

Did u see saurian update?
They say:
"There's been a lot of new information about a certain famous dinosaur this year and we have definitely been paying attention. I have spent dozens of hours working on something with some major input from both Scott Hartman and Mark Witton, two experts in life appearance of prehistoric animals. Unfortunately I can't say just yet what this is, but its pretty exciting for us and I hope you start getting excited too. It's expected sometime in the next month so pay attention."

This might mean they're converting to a scaly rex or something.

I hope not.

Well there's not too much evidence as to whether or not Tyrannosaurus was definitely completely scaly or definitely feathered, so the devs are free to speculate wildly

i recon the most the'll do is just reduce the feathering a bit, like make it a cape of feathers rather than a coat and leave most of the body scaly

This Tyrannosaurus is incorrect. It shouldn't have feathers and eat meat.

Could it be that tyrannosaurs were Autotrophs, not meat-eaters? The shape of their teeth obviously are very blunt. Perhaps the sharp teeth and claws were carved up by athetits. Obviously sharp teeth are actually for collecting sunlight, just as kitchen knives can be used for gathering electricity. 

Many sharp-toothed animals living today are Autotrophs and rarely (or never) eat anything. A few of many examples includes the potato.
