Was feeling less like death today, so I did a speedpaint of this critter, which is a new tyrannosaurid from America. 24 ft/8m long, probably weighed 2 tons or so, lived 95-70 million years ago. Favorite food: anything it could swallow. Favorite color: orange. 

Anyways, take it with a grain of salt - I’m not a professional and I’m just working from a couple of photos and having some fun for a few hours on a sick day.

That's still in contention from what I understand.

That is why I suggest you to analyze it yourself and eventually see what other have to say about it.

Well yeah, obviously.

Stunning work! I especially love how his bright blue eye makes him pop against the sandy background.

Nicely done with this. The fluff along his back is really well done, it almost looks real. Cool colors too, they go well with the background landscape. I imagine he would blend in very well with his surroundings. That dab of bright blue in the eye is nice as well, really grabs attention.

Very nice! I LOVE this guy's name! It sounds like a dragon from Skyrim.

Its name literally means 'gore king'.

So much new awesomeness in the paleontology world! Love your take on this guy. Need more fluffy tyrannosaurids dammit. Those baby blues really pop amongst all the orange!
