I was commissioned once again by my friend Greg Noneman to illustrate another fight inspired by Primitive War by Ethan Pettus. This time a father tyrannosaurus is bringing an elephant home for dinner to mamma and their young.

*Note: This isn't supposed to be accurate, this was just a fun concept based off of what Greg wanted design wise. I'm aware tyrannosaurus rex probably didn't look like this. 

For those of you who don't know, my two anatomy books "An Atlas of Dinosaur Anatomy" and "An Atlas of Prehistoric Animal Anatomy" are up for sale! If you like my studies like this one then you will love my books! Both come with many animals and several that will ONLY be found in my books! There's also a special Evolution of Baleen Whales in my Prehistoric Animal Anatomy book, you will not find this study anywhere else! Feel free to ask me questions. I will be selling them at Amazon and Barns and Noble soon, I'm going through the whole process and I will post links as soon as they're approved! You can buy them now from Lulu at these links:

An Atlas of Dinosaur Anatomy…

An Atlas of Prehistoric Animal Anatomy…

This is great! My niece would hate this, though, since elephants are one of her favorite animals.

I do intend to commission a followup to this showing the Mother and Father T. Rex having a family feast with their two chicks on the shoreline of the waterfall in time. In all honesty, those would make for two very good and hilarious captions for this picture.

This is not a Tyrannosaurus Rex. This is a giant chicken.

Get with the times, bro. T-Rexes had feathers. We all have to accept that.

T-Rexes had feathers and the Earth is flat hahaha

1. I can't tell if you're being serious, and that's very concerning. But just in case...
2. T-Rexes having feathers is pretty much scientifically confirmed.
3. Do you really think I'm stupid enough to be a flat-earther? To say you insult me is an understatement. You may as well call me a fucking anti-vaxxer while you're at it.

I won't be surprised if you are, we have absolutely no scientific evidence condirming T.Rex had feathers, in fact, all the scientific evidence goes against the feathered rex, there's 97.4% chance that T.Rex was fully covered in scales and only 2.6% it had feathers.

Actually a study done in 2017 concluded that T. Rex did, in fact, fave feathers. They would have just been limited to the upper side of the trunk/torso. At least on adults.

Funny, because the study actually said that there is 97.4% chance that T.Rex was fully covered in scales and only 2.6% chance it had feathers. you seem to have no idea what you're talking about.

Where did it say that? Or are you one of those people that can't handle scientific progress?

Reality is just a dream. The past is constantly changing, all scientific knowledge is also an illusion. The only reality is Nirvana, the life that links the Absolute One and sapient beings through love and will.
The Earth really is flat in one of the millions of multiverses, and there is also a multiverse where the Greek gods really live and rule. T-Rexes do have feathers in certain multiverses, and in others they do not. My T-Rexes have reptile scales.

somehow these remind me of critters, ya know those little balls of fur from outer space that tried to take over the world in a 1986 movie.

this is awesome and beautiful, and i hope this doesn't come off as insulting in some way, but at first glance i thought the T Rex on the right was watching a small elephant STAB another T Rex through the face with his trunk, and I was like "Jesus that's one hell of a trunk" but then I read the description and that made WAY more sense than whatever the hell is going on in my mind xD 

I do love this though, the detail is amazing and its so beautiful to look at :D
