-T. rex vs Triceratops- by arvalis -T. rex vs Triceratops- by arvalis
I was lucky enough to be asked to do this for Sideshow Collectibles based on their T. rex and their Triceratops statues, which are wonderful by the way. I had the opportunity to try a lot of new techniques here because the subject matter was pretty comfort zone and I think it really paid off because I learned a ton. Even though I spent a billion hours on the main guys, I think I'm most pleased with the tiny little lizard(chamops) in the bottom right corner. How dare they have the gall to fight on top of his log. I'd also like to imagine the T. rex is pushing a fart out of the trike. 

This was done as a limited edition print run for Sideshow Collectibles, which you can preorder here www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibl…

Okay, I've got a very dirty mind, as it looks like the T. rex and Triceratops are having sex.

Dude, have you heard about the ginger-browed Tyrannosaurus with the feathery Mohawk?

The orange brows and the "feathery mohawk" were entirely speculative. Unfortunately, the media (as per) decided to take that as fact

It never ceases to amaze me how Triceratops is always blown off as some helpless sheep.  A triple threat rhinocerous on steroids, shield protecting it's neck, shoulders, and part of it's back, and horns that could easily disembowel the soft underbelly of a T-Rex.  Anyway, this is a magnificent work.  Outstanding job.

This picture is hilarious for only one reason.  The triceratops looks devastated by being attacked by the tiny armed t-rex.  Bro you getting beat up by a guy with no arms.

I'm pretty sure the T-Rex never used it's arms for hunting. Just it's Jaws and teeth. I guess in this picture T-Rex is pinning down Triceratops with it's legs.

Actually the common belief is that the trex was a scavenger,  not a hunter.

The common belief of one single palaeontologist ( Horner ).  That is like saying that the common belief is that birds are not dinosaurs ( Feduccia ).

Weeeeel... 😬. There’s a lot more evidence to prove it was a hunter than a scavenger... But ya know, we all got different opinions so it doesn’t matter.

No the common belif is that is was both a hunter and a scavenger like any modern day apex predators. Like Lions, Tigers, bears, hyenas and crocodiles. Hyenas even hunt more than lions. Most of this theories about Tyrannosaurus Rex being a lazy scavenger originates from Jack Horner (Known for being irritated because of how famous T.Rex is) and he lately stated that he was wrong about that and the hypothetical T.Rex vs Spinosaurus fight.

Having been on its back already, the triceratops' neck is vulnerable to a killer blow, leaving it defenseless.
