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

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?
