How To Draw A T-Rex
Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs that ever lived. Everything about this ferocious predator, from its thick, heavy skull to its 4-foot-long jaw, was designed for maximum bone-crushing action. And I’ll show you how to draw a T-rex in just a minute…
Fossil evidence shows that Tyrannosaurus was about 40 feet long and about 15 to 20 feet tall. Its strong thighs and long, powerful tail helped it move quickly, and its massive 5-foot-long skull could bore into prey.
First, let’s look at how to draw a realistic t-rex…

Tyrannosaurus or T-Rex is one of the best known dinosaurs. You often see T-Rex pictures with his tail stretched out behind him. He did this for balance…but it also looks great if you can draw it right.

What did the T-rex really look like? We may never really know according to this excerpt from the Smithsonian…
What did T. rex look like? Did it sport scales, colors, feathers or all of the above?
Paleontologists have long debated this. A string of studies in the past decade have pointed to the potential widespread presence of either feathers or fuzz-like proto-feathers in dinosaur species. In 2012, paleontologists found that a T. rex relative, Yutyrannus huali, had filamentous feathers. If a relative had feathers, why not the king of reptiles itself?
Until a specimen is found with preserved imprints of feathers, though, the jury is out. “We have some opportunity to know if they had feathers because we can find impressions,” says Matthew Carrano, curator of dinosaurs at the National Museum of Natural History. “But it’s highly unlikely that we will ever know its color or the texture of its skin.”
