Project Description

The portrait of this tyrannosaur dinosaur was created as a press release image for the announcement of the official description of this new meat-eating dinosaur (Daspletosaurus horneri). After the publication of this research, I decided to create a self-promotional visual that was succinctly and superficially summarize the original research paper for a general and paleontological audience.
