This is a redrawing of my "reference sheet" for the Tyrannosaurus rex (original here: http://dabrandonsphere.deviantart.com/art/Reference-Tyrannosaurus-rex-613051180). This time I put more effort into making the dinosaur's anatomical proportions more accurate to the fossil data, and I expanded the canvas's dimensions to make the dinosaur look less squished.

You may notice I tend to color my tyrannosaurs green. I've always felt this would blend them better into a jungle or forest environment, which would help them immensely in stalking prey before ambushing it. I like to think of tyrannosaurs as the tigers or jaguars of their world and don't care from some of the more grizzly-inspired reconstructions I've been seeing in paleo-art lately (I don't like bears in particular to begin with).
