Tyrannosaurus Rex
Length 40-45ft
Height 13-16ft
Weight 8-9 tons
Diet Carnivore

Teeth of this dinosaur were first discovered in 1874. The first skeleton was first found by Barnum Brown in 1900 and was first given its name in 1905. This super predator fed upon anything it could kill, including it's own kind. With a bite force exceeding any animal known, and a powerfully built body, this is truly the King of the Dinosaurs.

 Ummm... Yutyrannus. It was an earlier relative that was completely feathered and was the same size of an Allosaurus. As for the baby part, no modern animal has that trait, so we don't know it that's something to truly consider.

The "eyebrows".
The male T-Rex's eyebrows is bigger than the females.

it is known that many carnivore dinosaurs had little feathers growing on their bodies. So it is very detailed and lifelike. Plus this is just copying Jurassic Park movie-style and nothing own-invented.

Not really. It's a theory bud. The only reasoning they believe large carnivores had feathers was because of some tiny dromeosaurids and thanks to Yutyrannus, which is highly understandable why Yutyrannus needed feathering. For larger dinosaurs like T-Rex, its highly absurd as it traps heat. This would overheat it and thanks to its environment (hot and humid), there was no need for feathers. Essentials are needed, not wants in Mother Nature.

Well... Feathers don't neccessarilly mean overheating. One must remember that feathers can trap cool air and do work both ways in terms of thermoregulation.

Perhaps you're right there.

But before you give up on feathered Tyrannosaurus completely, consider that Tyrannosaurus wasn't always living in a warm and humid climate. Maastrichtian North America (and a number of areas far North of the tropics by that time) would have seen a fair share of cold winters, complete with snowfall and freezing temperatures. Due to the probable idea that known Yutyrannus plumage is in fact seasonal, it isn't at all unreasonable to guess that Tyrannosaurus would have experienced similar moulting phases.

I'm not trying to preach, I'm just saying that with paleoart it is best to keep an open mind rather than conform to a well loved ideal, no matter how logical that ideal may seem. Science marches on, and even if we're wrong sometimes, so should we.

Besides, even if you still can't consider a fully feathered Tyrannosaurus, then bear in mind that this art shows only a slight mane, which would have little effect on temperature.

True true. I will give you that one.

And that one as well. But there is no pointing of evidence of Tyrannosaurus having any distinct feathers on it, more over than Triceratops having quills on its back (I've heard about this, I'm not 100% sure on it, but it might be true.). But, there could be similar phases of seasoning like you mentioned. But, that would be pretty strange alone due to the humid and oxygen levels that the dinosaurs had back then. Maybe if we get a better understanding, we might know more on environments later on. But for now, it's all still speculation.

And no, you weren't preaching my friend. >-< I was the one preaching. God, I need a choir to help me out! Haha. =P But anyways, I guess we all can't disregard anything until we truly find out for ourselves.

still as I said I understand these arts as Jurassic Park fanart. And since we still do not exacly know, how dinosaurs really looked like, also in colors, I think there is no "wrong" when painting them. Plus this is amazing, realistic looking fanart, and should not be disliked just because of some hardly-viewable "feathers" on the back of his head.

Well, I'm not trying to say it can't be true. It's all just a theory. A theory can be right, wrong, or in between.
But, it does look like an amazingly well drawing, if not spectacular. For me, if we are going to say anything about as preposterous as that, then you can pertain to my drawings. Hell, I have a drawing of a Tyrannosaurus Rex with quills/spikes on its back. Weird and strange, but we don't have any evidence of that either, yet we can't just disregard that it could be there! We found quill-like feathers on Ceratopsians too!

I'm just not that huge of a fan of dinosaurs having feathers, due to the fact I was born in the years of dinosaurs having lizard-like skin instead of feathers. Lol. But, as I grow more and more, there are more and more drawings of more dinosaurs having feathers now. Disappointing in my opinion, because I see dinosaurs as cold-blooded killers, but that's just me. =P

I agree that one has to get used to the look with feathers, I also grew up with the time of dinosaurs without feathers and at first I thought the paintings with feathers looked weird, but I have to say I got used to it pretty soon. Maybe because I like birds so much and keep birds myself :D

Lol. Probably. The funny thing is, it's taking me a very long time to get use to this kind of drawings. I'm particularly not fond of large theropods having feathers, but that's just my opinion. >-<
But, it is very true that birds are direct descendants of dinosaurs...So, those animals you have in your house are dinosaurs....FREAKING SMART LITTLE DEVILS!! Lol. x3
