Deinocheirus herd being stalked by a Tarbosaurus (here clad in my new feathered incarnation). This is definitively not my last take on this… I have become rather obsessively interested in the (to my eyes at least) humped monster and spent many hours in these illustrations! Please take in consideration that the arms alone are two meters long… and as John Hutchinson noted, framed by the body mass they (and the head) look positively puny!
I have been trying some head ornaments of these animals for a while … noting the size of the antorbital fenestra I added it as a source of inflatable colourful displaying possibilities; needless to say I was inspired partly by the dulia, the inflatable throat sac in camels.
This illustration may change in the future, but for the time I’m having real fun with it! The next step will be a close up of the head… awaiting corrections in the future but al`ready in the making.
In the meantime I can almost hear him…he looks positively menacing!
