Well, that was fast, but it's beautiful, I also noted the a bit big head like some others but it's still awesome =)

Thank you, as always! :) Seems like everybody notes the head. :lol:

No problem, hope the head is not too heavy for you now =)

Really good, yet there's something which doesn't look quite right, IMHO... Maybe it's the slightly too gracile ankles, or maybe i'm just tired and i see things!

The head, it's the head, as others have already noted. ;) Ankles are fine. Theropods have gracile ankles.

I was waiting for your restoration, and you did not disappoint! I freakin' LOVE this dinosaur! Oh, and Lythronax in JP and all that.

Thank you, man! It's indeed really cool dinosaur.

Beautiful! Great to see your take on the gore king.

Thank you, Pils! Maybe not as good as yours, but still worth the look. ;)

I also get the sense that the head might be a little too big, but it could be a perspective thing. In any case, the detail in this one is particularly good - I like the really clear distinction between naked skin (on the body) and legitimate scales on the face.
