Hell Creek by ChrisMasna Hell Creek by ChrisMasna
My best tyrannosaurids so far.
Adult Tyrannosaurus bullying youngsters. When you are bigger and stronger, you don't need to hunt...

Actually, this was just an excuse to draw something related to the weather here, a couple of days ago, also I wanted to improve my rain and lightnings.

I tried to copy the colour of Dinosaur Revolution's T.rex, I think it's the best colour scheme of all time, it really looks scary!
And that cascass belongs to an Edmontosaurus.

Anyway, I'm not very satisfied with this, in the sketches you can feel the power of the animals pulling the carcass, the youngs slipping on the mud... maybe I should try with less realistic and more expressing paintings, I'm not sure.

Great song I was listening when sketching this: [link]

Why am I just now finding this? I loved Dinosaur Revolution. Between new facts that threw out some of what I had learned as a kid in the 90's out the window and the way the dinosaurs were portrayed going about their lives was really cool. I was never a fan of the idea that dinosaurs were just bumbling reptiles or couldn't express feelings like dogs or other animals today can, we don't know and may never. 

Why do I have a sneaky suspicion that the adult 'Rex here will have a run in with these two again one day? >;)

Still, DR had a lot of anthropomorphization, but yeah :)

Granted but, I think that's what helped keep any kids who were watching interested. That's what kept my little cousin. Of course, this kid has been watching a mix of Land Before Time and the Jurassic Park movies since he was two years old like I was.

I would feel truly honored if you would allow me to use this in a video I am making about the Dinosaurs who were the Apex Predators of their reign. Its a non-profit slide show montage video, made for fun and advent viewing to everyone. If no, I will respect that. If yes however, then I will guarantee that your name will be in the credits and there will be a link back to your DA page in the description box so that everyone can know that it is work. What do you think?

pretty cool and - less realistic and more expressive sounds also cool... :D
the lightnings are perhaps a bit weak, but the rain and the faint bushes in the dark are gorgeous... :D
i come to the expressive because my old time fave dino illustrator z. burian tended to expressionistic depictions of the old time animals which i like very much... :D

I don't think I could've wished to see a more spectacular, if not sensational Tyrannosaurus piece. I am simply in awe. FANTASTIC work here!

Nah I am just kidding. This is great. The shading adds very good details, and the tone of the deviation. You are a very good artist.

Nice! i guess this was from a time when stumpy still had his right arm. the color added with the dark background makes it even scarier.

glad i made your day. this is by far one of the most accurate depictions i have seen when it comes to adult and juvenile t. rexes. the young hunt on their own, after a certain age and the adults will chase them from kills when their down on their own luck.

I love this! I do believe that this is your best work to date, and I love the Dinosaur Revoultion theme, when I saw this I was like... "OMG it's Stumpy the T.Rex from DR! OMG!" The ambience, rain and lightining make this a sinister, yet awesome piece. Well done!

Thank you. I agree, I'm very proud of this although at first I was disapointed, it looked better in my head. But most of the credit should be to David Krentz, the guy who made, imo, the best looking T. rex since JurassicPark.

A more dramatic lightsource (maybe like a bolt of lightning or something) would absolutely help make this more dynamic. Also, there is a missed opportunity here for some added motion and color with some blood flying off the carcass of dipped off their jaws so you can feel the motion of them swinging their heads and tearing at the flesh.

Hope this helps, nice work!
