Here is a long overdue render of my updated Tyrannosaurus rex model, made entirely in Zbrush 4r7 (and a bit of 4r8), rendered in BPR, exported to Photoshop CC and mashed together for Studio 252MYA. 

The model itself is roughly based on Specimen FMNH PR 2081, otherwise known as Sue. Especially the head proportions are in reference to 'her'. I am well aware of the Daspletosaurus paper, yet do not agree with some of the bold assumptions made in regards to the 'obvious lack of lips'. Other parts of it, like the keratinous and leathery covering of the face, were implemented here, displaying thick and rough skin around the upper and lower jaws, with the typical keratinous coverings above the eyes and nasal ridge.

I really like the cornified pads above the eyes. They look really natural, and it's nice to see something distinct from the "mini-horns" or the large scale-like sheaths one might see in a lot of tyrannosaur artwork.

Is the model just a bust, or will there be a body to go with it?

Thanks for the comment! There is a full body behind it, it just needs to be finished and presented. :)
