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?
