BBC T. Rex Remodel by FredtheDinosaurman BBC T. Rex Remodel by FredtheDinosaurman
...sigh...once again, I have the need to fix something...

The BBC is releasing a new dino-documentary within the next month or two titled, "The Real T. Rex"...and yet...it's not the real T. Rex.

This actually took way more time than the JW:FK Bary photoshop. BBC, why? Mark Witton is RIGHT THERE in the UK...

Reason as to why I have both Stan and Tristan specimens is because the documentary is using Tristan as it's model for their T. Rex. Added a Stan edit because everyone loves his gorgeous face <3

EDIT: Stupidly forgot to fix the dewclaw on the hind limbs. That's what I get for working on shit at 4am lol

Ok, T-rex didn't have balding hairs, it had feathers. From my research, they probably were like a huge Yutyrannus with some different physical features. Great work on the remake, looks amazing. I would like it even more if it had feathers but hey, I'm not here to be nit-picky. Also, do you like the Saurian re-creation of a T-rex because I believe it is extremely accurate.

im not an expert but feathers on modern birds are used for insulating against cold temperatures. now imagine that on an animal that's larger than an elephant, consuming more energy than any other modern animal(besides the blue whale). it would overheat very quickly and it's simply not an accurate depiction. hell, even a paleontologist(forgot his name) was against the whole idea from the beginning, and supported his argument with what i just said. 
the saurian rex is going to be changed, if you haven't seen by now. tinyurl.com/ybf332vz

Thank you. And research you say? Why dont you write a paper on that, get it peer reviewed by some paleontologists, and get back to me on that.

It's delivered as sarcasm but the suggestion is real. I can't just believe any random person that comments some of these "facts" under my illustrations and believe them all. If it hasn't been properly studied, lacks evidence, and hasn't been carefully peer reviewed for errors/flaws then it's hearsay and not to be trusted.

Probably could have kept the feather patches on the back visible, albeit shorter.
Otherwise this is a lovely re-edit. Makes the original look like some kind of gremlin nightmare.
My one question- they mentioned the crests on the eyes were supposed to be red in the documentary, but the model made it orange/gold for some reason. Have you tried editing it with the red instead?
Reply
:iconclassycthulhu:
Yeah, why would they use that model? Its head looks like a potato. Plus, if they're going to do feathers, they could have at least made it not look like pubic hair. You created a much needed improvement.

NICE work!

We DO have ancient depictions, reliefs, petroglyphs and pottery, in color, showing dinosaur pigmentations and all types of patterns..  Of course living at the same time, as the artisans.. It goes against the grain of academic teaching, but the artifacts are out there in plenty.  Please look for yourselves.  Forget the BBC and the Smithsonian.

The Ica stones are debunked, and dragon depictions are probably merely inspired by dinosaur bones. Dragon depictions usually have overlapping scales, mamalian ears and mammalian teeth, which would not be present on a diapsid archosaur. The evidence that these relics are not accurate dinosaur depictions is far too great.

You do realise that none of those are consistent with the artwork made by ancient people of the proposed areas they were found in, and depict creatures that look nothing like what they did in reality. You need to look for yourself because those are bullshit

Actually it is my job.  The native Chieftans and record keepers are quite familiar.
  It's nothing new to them at all, and the artifacts also. You should visit, or look up the interviews
Thx!

I personally love the look, but it still had a roar in there somewhere. Similar to an elephant I’m guessing.

Carnivore dinosaurs couldnt roar (hervibores like the parasaurolophus could ""roar"" but it sounded like a trumpet), BUT they cold make a lot of scary sounds. The best example is the sound that the cassowary makes in this video (youtu.be/4dcQO6Zb8Eg), especially the last one. In real life, it would make your whole body vibrate!

It probably didn't, elephants have very different vocal chords compared to T. rex's vocalisation mechanisms. Based on the scientific evidence we have they probably hissed and rumbled like a large ratite, the southern cassowary being the best comparison

personally i am ok with the mane idea, the issue is that in the documentary he said "similar to how lions have manes" and it was obvious the guys behind the show were just like "YOU HEARD HIM, PUT A FLAT OUT LION MANE ON THIS THANG"
if they just looked at good paleoart they would have ended up with a FAR better Tyrannosaurus design
