BBC T. Rex Remodel by FredtheDinosaurman BBC T. Rex Remodel by FredtheDinosaurman
Once again I have the itch to edit something...

The BBC is releasing a new dino-documentary within the next month or two titled, "The Real T. Rex"...and yet...it does look like the real T. Rex.

This actually took way more time than the JW:FK Bary photoshop. I'm confused at the BBC. Surely they knew about Mark Witton, who would have helped tremendously in the look and accuracy of the animal.

The 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 stuff like this at 4am lol
ALSO: Here's a slide comparison between the original and edit: cdn.discordapp.com/attachments…

BBC has created an accurate T. rex. Just because Saurian rebuilt its Tyrannosaurus doesn't mean it's the real animal. heck, saurian thinks the animals lived alone and cared for their young rather than hunt in packs like we know they probably do This could be saurian just simplifying the game, but if they wanted to make an accurate game they must make their T. rex's hunt in packs. Your model is better. It at least has some remnants of its younger self's insolation(baby and juvenile tyrannosaurus probably had a coat of feathers, but shed the majority of it over time). And you kept the scars, unlike saurians design that has no adult scarring whatsoever. The only problem is the feathers. We don't know if adults did have feathers, but my guess is that they did. In conclusion, your model may be more accurate then saurian's but don't have feathers out of the question yet. :)

Please stop spreading false information it’s misleading and just...well not causing a positive impact. We have no supporting evidence for the concept of Tyrannosaurus hunting in packs whatsoever and to imply that we supposedly know that they did is completely disingenuous, finding different individuals in close proximity =/= pack behavior as that can indicate a variety of circumstances that we cannot confirm. Even the citations on Wikipedia note that such a claim is an extrapolation from finds of different genera that we again : cannot confirm is evidence of true pack hunting and are not even from tyrannosaurus itself....we don’t have any reason to believe adult Rexes hunted in packs , claiming one is incorrect for not portraying them in such a setting is fairly unfounded. The page even notes how such a claim has been criticized as well. Not having scarring on an adult animal in an artistic representation doesn’t make said model inaccurate as scars in general come down to the lifestyle of an individual animal and the struggles it goes through you also realize that there is a period in a creatures life where it doesn’t initially have scarring right? I’m not sure why you keep stating the feathers are a problem given that they’re ambiguous at best with the current data we have.

Abscence of evidence doesn’t mean evidence of abscence. In fact, we do have evidence that T. rex did in fact hunt in packs.

Absence of evidence isn’t evidence of presence either, dinosaur social behavior is predominantly speculation save for a few instances. We have no evidence whatsoever that Tyrannosaurus hunted in packs.

I saw some pictures of Tristan's skull and it is accurate: Tristan did have a deformed skull and multiple injuries. Overall, he is a good example of a really BANGED up Tyrannosaurus Rex.

At least you added some feathers, even if it was like elephant hair, unlike the saurian team

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

Umm, no, feathers don't "overheat" an animal. There's no concept of overheating when it comes to feathers, they're a lot more advanced and effective then fur. Fur can overheat, not feathers. Feathers can both cool down, and heat up.

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

Dinosaurs are easy..  It's the Nephilim & ancient giant humanoids that even the Vatican searched every continent for, with much success, during the inquisition..
