My first attempt at a befeathered tyrannosauroid. Here's a young Bistahieversor sealeyi dragging a well-chewed Kritosaurus carcass along a sand bar 75 million years ago in what would become New Mexico's Kirtland Formation. Flies swarm the rapidly decomposing flesh of the hadrosaur and a coastal breeze from an approaching storm sways the palms and ruffles the bristle-like feathers of the theropod. I drew Bistahieversor head-on because I'm sort of bored with side profile views these day and also it allowed me to avoid deciding where exactly feathers gave way to skin or scales a bit longer. Somehow a reddish tint appeared as I got this piece digitized and I think it works pretty well. Thanks for looking!

Heh, I can completely relate to the "it allowed me to avoid deciding where exactly feathers gave way to skin or scales a bit longer" part. It looks positively gorgeous! Especially the way you managed to draw the Bistahieversor's feet in front view. These things give me headaches - you did a great job there.
