TYRANNOSAURUS REX

Personally, I draw tyrannosaurs with more feathers than this, but this looks absolutely awesome.

It wouldn't need any more feathers than this. I believe that this is the most accurate representation of a Tyrannosaurus (adult).

I am not usually a fan of the larger Tyrannosaurs being depicted with feathers, but I absolutely love this design :D

I'm sure everyone else has noticed that the last few dinosaurs have been in ascending order of popularity... Is Deinonychus next?

i'm not sure it's possible to ascend in popularity from t.rex.

just a few more days now and number one-hundred will be revealed, a hint at the next step in the project: dinosauria process.

I was referring to Mamba taking the initiative and drawing a feathered version of a Rex in a manner that was accurate (and not throwing on giant tail fans, waddles, and roster combs just for artistic sensing), not necessarily because I agree that feathers are the way to go on Tyrannosaurus (I tend to think outside of maybe a few display feathers, adults were scaly and only covered in feathers in the same way an elephant is covered in hair)

So true! Of course, I draw it with feathers covering most of the body. Only the feet, head, and hands are scaly.

Wait! If ol' rex is 99, then who's the 100th dinosaur? Could it be Eoraptor perhaps?

I happen to notice the most recent ones are the most popular ones. I wonder what no. 100 will be...
