Hell yes tarbosaurus! I especially love the arch of his head and the slope of the snout. He's all "Outta mah way!" har!

This image would be better if his right foot were planted on the ground with all toes, instead of just the one. I assume you were going for a sense of charging speed or something, but it would look more powerful and realistic with the whole foot on the ground.

reminds me of the t. bataar illegally auctioned in NY :\

It is. I used the same skeleton as a reference.:)

the technique is really awesome! did you base it on a reference or is it freehand? you see, it seems to me that the forelegs are too high on the body and too close to the neck, but that's my only criticism. The rest is just brilliant ;) the scales must've been a pain in he neck to draw. :deviation:

The skeleton is a reference from the image of Tarbosaurus going to auction in China. I draw first skeleton of the grid I create on the computer, so I do the same on paper. I have some freehand drawing dinosaurs. For example. Giganotosaurus lying on the ground and Concavenator images. The scales take looong time to draw, but I enjoy it. To see the dinosaur take shape, is a great pleasure.

I can see in the picture, that I forgot to bring the shadow on the upper arm further down.

Amazing!!! It's awesome the way you rounded out the form.
And I thought I was detail minded.

Glad you like it. I saw a picture of a rooster without feathers, and thought .. hmm .. Maybe ... (The animal was very muscular.) .. And I love details. All the pictures I draw is a training process. I'm oil painting dinosaurs later.

A wonderful use of the imagination.
I,too, love the details.
