What I don't get is that people here seem to think that Tyrannosaurus had a miniscule amount of feathers, yet completely agree with yutyrannus being fluffy, even though both lived in the same type of climate.

Awsome, but nanotyrannus can not be T. rex.

some scientists thinks that T-rex was born with feathers but loses them when they grew up, like an asian elephant got more hair as an baby.

Personally, I draw tyrannosaurs with more feathers than this, but this looks absolutely awesome.

It wouldn't need any more feathers than this. I believe that this is the most accurate representation of a Tyrannosaurus (adult).

I am not usually a fan of the larger Tyrannosaurs being depicted with feathers, but I absolutely love this design :D

I'm sure everyone else has noticed that the last few dinosaurs have been in ascending order of popularity... Is Deinonychus next?
Green-Mamba's avatar
i'm not sure it's possible to ascend in popularity from t.rex.

just a few more days now and number one-hundred will be revealed, a hint at the next step in the project: dinosauria process.
