The Stalking Queen _ T-rex by amorousdino The Stalking Queen _ T-rex by amorousdino
"The Stalking Queen"

Tyrannosaurus Rex. A new painting done in acrylics. Here is a stalking T-rex, slowy making its way on its tippy-toes, trying to be as silent as possible.

I used references from here [link] and [link] to be as accurate as possible.

Completed on the 20th of July 2009.

Here's a link to my other dinosaur artwork: [link]

Color patterns remind me of the female Rex from Walking with Dinosaurs, it's a fantastic picture

Yeah, I used to depict my t-rexes using the WWD design (its my favorite rendition of tyrannosaurus) but it's a wee bit too inaccurate anatomically. I've updated my tyrannosaur reconstructions to be more accurate but still within the bounds of my older depiction: [link]

the only thing that dissapointed me about the WWD T-Rex was the screech she had, I base my Tyrannosaurs off internet picture and in the case of T-Rex, Jurassic Park as well

agree with :iconcraftycreatures: on this one, best dinosaur picture you have done yet! reminds me of pointalism, its really beautiful.

Have you tried one of those underwater dinosaurs that look like crocodiles but have flippers? (dont know the name) i reckon you could do something awesome with one of those, could be good practise with painting water too. or even have him leaping out of the water to get a flying or drinking dinosaur.

The coloration of the Rex reminds me of Walking With Dinosaurs.

This is just beutiful. I love how you did the sunset in the backround, it blends in well with the texture on the rex. Awesome job man!

It's awesome!

I like that it's anatomically correct and it has a nice painterly texture to it.
The only minor point I'd note is the "rudimentary wings". First, I'd doubt such structures existing outside Maniraptora, though sexual selection being what it is I wouldn't discount altogether.
Also wings in dinosaurs don't go past the elbow except in some groups of birds, though the same sexual selection caveat applies.

All in all do keep up the great work and I hope I wasn't a bore with my niggling.

Finally, I apologize for the late comment. Life has a way to get at one you wouldn't believe :P

Hey, its all good, lol

Thanks for the feedback and yeah the quils on her arms are for display purposes though I did not know about the wing/elbow thing. Thanks for that.
About the feather thing :tux: not being outside the Maniraptora, I was under the impression that feathers and feather-like structures predated the Maniraptors by first appearing in the earlier members of Coelurosauria, like Dilong and Sinosauropteryx.

After Tianyulong one can be pretty sure feathers are as old as dinosaurs ;) But you're right in saying they exist in coelurosaurs in general.
I was just saying that wing-like structures, I mean, more or less stiff elongated feathers on the arms or legs, are hallmarks of maniraptorans as, so far, they were only found for them. Thus having protowings on anything outside Maniraptora, for the time being, seems unfounded.

Lol, I see:).
Wonder if they'll find anything like that in the more advanced tyrannosaurs across the globe rahter than just the basal ones. I just only heard about Tianyulong, its like-what- the second non-theropod dinosaur with some sort of feather-like covering?

Btw, was Raptorex found with any feather-like covering:confused:?

Probably only in young. I can't help but root for feathery manes on the big ones though...

Ah, but pterosaurs do have their fuzz, which makes the phylogenetic bracket more interesting ;) Also I remember Greg Paul making a good case for 'furry' hadrosaur hatchlings, based on their growth rates and the bare nests.*

As far as I've read, Raptorex wasn't found with feathers. I'd like to point out another recent find, Sinotyrannus, as far as we know the biggest tyrannosauroid 120 million years ago :)

Awesome work! My only suggestion is to maybe define the outline of the left leg (our right) a little more, because it blends into the shadows. Unless that was your intention, in that case, the effect is perfect: Tyrannosaurus slinking out of (or into) the shadows. :D

I love the background, too! Fantastic work. :nod:

Alright, this is your best so far. I LOVE this painting!!! The colors, the pose, the setting, the small touches like the bird, the yellow sky and golden trees give it a sense of dawn/dusk....

Wonderful work!!!
