Lythronax argestes by Viergacht Lythronax argestes by Viergacht

Was feeling less like death today, so I did a speedpaint of this critter, which is a new tyrannosaurid from America. 24 ft/8m long, probably weighed 2 tons or so, lived 95-70 million years ago. Favorite food: anything it could swallow. Favorite color: orange. 

Anyways, take it with a grain of salt - I’m not a professional and I’m just working from a couple of photos and having some fun for a few hours on a sick day.

That's still in contention from what I understand.

That is why I suggest you to analyze it yourself and eventually see what other have to say about it.

Stunning work! I especially love how his bright blue eye makes him pop against the sandy background.

Nicely done with this. The fluff along his back is really well done, it almost looks real. Cool colors too, they go well with the background landscape. I imagine he would blend in very well with his surroundings. That dab of bright blue in the eye is nice as well, really grabs attention.

So much new awesomeness in the paleontology world! Love your take on this guy. Need more fluffy tyrannosaurids dammit. Those baby blues really pop amongst all the orange!

I just heard about this guy yesterday and I think you made him look kinda cuddly here. :D Or fluffy...even though he'd eat me for lunch. Either way, looks awesome and cute!
