Ladies and gentlemen: Yutyrannus huali by ChrisMasna Ladies and gentlemen: Yutyrannus huali by ChrisMasna
Behold the beautiful feathered tyrant.

Small reference sheet of this new dinosaur discovery of 2012.

Why is Yutyrannus sooo important?
-Because is the biggest feathered animal known.
-Because it is a Tyrannosaur, what means that other member of the group had feathers, too (T. rex included).
-Because a fluffy Tyrannosaur is awesome, and I'd like to cuddle it.

About the size comparison between both dinosaurs (yes, the sparrow is a dinosaur too), I made a sub-adult Yutyrannus, wich skull is about 80cm long, while the sparrow total length is about 16cm.
I used as reference the specimen ELDM V1001 as it was drew by *shartman ( [link] ). However, the size of that skull (63cm), the one you will see in google, belongs to a young animal, while the biggest (ZCDM V5000) has an estimate length of 90.5cm.

Beautiful! You really captured the essence of this dinosaur!  I like that you added more to this beautiful creature's look than the typical view of monsters in which theropod dinosaurs are most often portrayed. It gives more dimension to this creature and draws you in to thinking about what his or her daily life was like. What was his or her personality like? What shenanigans did he is she get up too? He or she certainly was more than just a predator. You can see it in the eyes.

What really? I'm pretty silly because I thought all extinct animals look like modern ones.
Which Bird again looks like Archaeopteryx....?

Please, write properly, it's almost impossible to understand these lines.

Now, if  I understand correctly, you seem to be convinced that "no bird looks like him". 

Who is "him"? The Yutyrannus? It is a female, so it would be "her", not "him".

And most important, what is a "mixcen" chicken? You mean "mexican" chicken? I just googled that. Looks delicious. Are you hungry, my friend?

Wonderful interpretation of an important dinosaur. As for the bird, a little grey on top of head and it would be fine!

It's not clear that the rest of the tyrannosaur members had feathers:

"However, naked and scaly skin impressions have been reported from late Cretaceous tyrannosaurids, with no evidence of plumage; if naked or scaly skin was the dominant epidermal trait of later genera, the extent and nature of the integumentary covering may have changed over time in response to body size, a warmer climate, or other factors."

well, I have to divide this in two parts:
First, 'naked skin' refers to smallpatches in certain zones (Tyrannosaurus, tip of the tail, as far as I know.)
Second, if Yutyrannus, a 8m(?) long tyrannosauroid had feathers, at least that lineage had them. And the babies, they definitely were feathered. Even if the adults were semi-bald ;)

So cool to find out about these new discoveries along with a fantastic picture. So it sounds like full grown it is about the same size as Gigantoraptor which is also depicted as feathered.

What could be better than a feathered Tyrannosaur? :la: I read about this; it is one fantastic find :D it's amazing that one can learn so much from a few fossils!

I just love your rendition of the beautiful feathered tyrant; the detail of the feathers and the scales are just wonderful - the softness of the feathers makes it look almost friendly :meow: the Sparrow is a lovely touch and really helps show off the size comparison :D truly excellent work!
