Stock Carnosaurs by Tomozaurus Stock Carnosaurs by Tomozaurus
More TV Tropes-osaurs. From the top to the bottom Giganotosaurus carolinii and Allosaurus fragilis. I kind of like how these came out actually, Giganotosaurus looks like a badarse.

That is an amazing picture.

Great work. I see that you have used the new mass estimations for these fellas. Much bulkier creatures! I also like the connective sheet of skin, which wraps the thighs, instead of leaving the thigs separate. There is evidence for this, at least in one hadrosaurid fossil.
I am curious about the ceratin?-like covering at the snout. Is this based on some research?

Thank you for the comment. Yes, I certainly took all of the new mass predictions into account when reconstructing these two, and both came out very heavy-set.
The snout, however, is not actually supposed to be a keratinous covering, but a solid, rugose surface akin to that of crocodilians; a feature which is apparently evidenced from skin impressions from Carnotaurus.

Ah, ok. Is this skin impression described in that paper by Bonabarte?

I actually don't know, I heard it from Jaime Headden.

Hey, may I ask, what size did you envision the Allosaur being? 12-meter or 9-10 meter one? I though the Allo looked a bit small compared with the Giga to be the former, but, then again, Giga was large enough to make a 12-meter look comparativelly smaller, and the almost 2 meter skull is almost as long as the actual advantage...

...

Wait, what size did you envision the Giganotosaur being?

...

Better yet, did you draw them in scale to each other? If that wasn't the case, I've just wasted both of our time :S

Man, I need to stop coming into the internet with mild intoxication, thanks for bearing with me!

haha no worries XD

They are indeed to scale with the Giganotosaurus at 12 meters and the Allosaurus as a standard 9 meters.

Mmm, reduced arms in Giga, nice! Both of them look great, and, may I ask, what are the spiky structures in Giga's hip?

Thanks! Oh, nothing really, the're just spikes. I thought about erasing them in photoshop but didn't bother.
