Gorgosaurus libratus by T-PEKC Gorgosaurus libratus by T-PEKC
Gorgosaurus libratus - tyrannosaurid from the Campanian of Laramida. Some paleontologists consider Gorgosaurus synonymous with Albertosaurus. The feathering is, again, losely based on that of Cassowary. Proto-wing are speculative, and the longer pennaceous-like feathers are supposed to be EBFFs. Lips and keratinous structures over nasals and lacrimal bones are speculative too.

I love the pose you used here, very unique for a tyrannosaur. Reminds me of a fox leaping on a mouse in the snow. cx The reconstruction looks really nice overall. Great work!

Thank you!

No pens were used for this drawing. Just nibs of two different sizes and ink. (unfortunately I am not familiar with the different kinds of nibs and their characteristics, so can't give you more detailed information)

I saw this and my first instinct was to yell "Weeeeee!" at the top of my lungs.

In all seriousness, though, it's a beautiful piece with loads of detail. Great job!

The scaly Gorgosaurus/Albertosaurus in WWD3D is indeed big letdown. It's not like some of the scientific advisors didn't supported a feathered version of it, but in the end it's Hollywood. :/

Thanks!

is he supposed to be hopping? i heard somewhere that someone thought that rexes hopped like eagles on the ground do, but i doubt that.

Yes, it's hopping, or more like jumping onto something that's off-screen.

Yes, I'll continue with the feathered tyrannosaurids for awhile, but I'll keep working on my stegosaurs. My next artwork will be sun-bathing Tarbosaurus.

Oh, come on now! Gimme a break!

This is a splendor, like your previous one about Teratophoneus. Really, how do you do?

Let me say you "Bravo!", 'cause you deserve it.

 

Ps: is it just me, or are you going to do other tyrannosaurids as well?

T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
Again, thank you! Much appreciated! :)

Yes, I'm going to draw more tyrannosaurids, will switch between them and the stegosaurs series I still have to work on and eventually finish. Currently I'm working on sun-bathing Tarbosaurus, thanks to TetZoo article on sun-bathing birds.

A leaping tyrannosaurid! Certainly not something one sees everyday.

T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
Absolutely true! I can't think of another one at the moment, though probably there are other leaping tyrants outhere in the depths of internet. Definitely not the case for non-tyrannosaurid tyrannosauroids though, thanks to Mr. Knight.

Magnificent! I'm not sure about the slightly larger croc like scales in the pelvis, but fair enough.

T-PEKC Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
Thanks, man!

I'm not sure too, but I decided to have them as an artistic licence, to make my tyrannosaurs in general, and this Gorgosaurus in particular, stick out among other reconstructions. It's something as a trend in my work recently I guess, to draw dinosaurs in such a way that they look like mixture of birds and crocs in terms of integument (but still relying on the available fossil evidence and widely accepted hypotheses).

This pen & ink style you've got going here is delicious. It works so well with the cassowary-like texture you've chosen. I like the pose a lot too, and the angle of the tail gives it an added sense of dynamism.

Thanks for the comment, Emily! I always appreciate your input and thoughts.

I intentionally choosed cassowary-like feathering, because I felt it's the only kind I can pull off relatively easy with my current style, and skills. I may try an ostrich-like feathering on another tyrannosaurid, but I'm not sure they fit my idea of tyrannosaurs feathers. Thus I think to stick and improve on the cassowary-like integument, when it comes to tyrannosaurs.

Wondering what would happen, if I acctually, just for once, get my reconstructions accurate without making stupid mistakes and mess them up, like I did with the Tyrannosaurus you're refering to. :p

Mistakes are the best way to learn, and those two images of yours in succession show that idea in action.
