Male Tyrannosaurus by damir-g-martin
Male Tyrannosaurus
Male Tyrannosaurus I made for Mike Kelly upcoming book about the King of dinosaurs. Iridescent plumage covering sides of the kings belly and most of the dorsal tail.. An element directed towards attracting opposite sex.

I pulled my hair out for couple weeks trying to figure questions relating to feather/fuzz in Rex. The render above has optimized tail feathers (for a faster render time) Originally, the tail feathers should look bit different. I tried to design the tail feather to look unique. I had peafowl on my mind the entire time. His beautiful tail feathers are very special and a trophy among feathers. I Tried to make Tyrannosaurus tail plumage a "trophy" in it's own. Sort of like: "You gonna wanna see T Rex tail feathers!" There's an image on my facebook page that explains the feather structure. Sort of like a long bristles attached to a stubby rachis, reminiscent of a broom.. I wanted to go "outside the box" with it. Due to the lack of evidence I as an artist had certain extent of freedom and I took it. I took advantage of "art" in "paleo art" if you will. I simply tried to avoid going the safe way or simple way by completely exploiting modern feather look and feel( even if this render does not show it properly)

Hello there Mr Martin, I know you might not remember me but I've check your place before, I remember your work on Dinomonsters couple of years ago and I found the characters amazing. If I may ask how are things with the series is it still being worked on or it's done?
