Long Live the King by adventurevisual Long Live the King by adventurevisual
Official Title is "The King is Dead, Long Live the King" which is a saying from medieval times. I thought it was appropriate for the king of the dinosaurs. Ink on bristol board, with digital colour.

A William Stout fan perhaps? Great work!

Mr. Stout owns one of the first prints of this piece ... I had the pleasure of trading stories with him on a few occasions over the last few years ... he's truly one of the best dinosaur artists out there, and a great guy to drink with !

The greatest dino that ever lived! Spinosaurus has nothing on The King.

I like the little scavengers picking the bones

Spinosaurus was much smaller and weaker than it was portrayed in Jurassic Park III, (same goes for the raptors in all the JP movies).

I know lol Spino's teeth were a joke. He ate fish mainly anyways. And whats with the whole neck snaping thing in JP3?? I gotta stop myself here or I'll go on forever. Spino was cool lookin, but no Rex.

Gorgeous detailing (and pen-and-ink is so challenging, much respect to your skills!)--it's like a photo of what would truly have happened: the beast would succumb (to wounds from its contemporaries, or perhaps disease), would serve as food for numerous other creatures, then be covered over on the river bank... Did you use a real skeleton for reference here, or is this from memory...? The environment looks just awesome--particularly the water and the plants... Fantastic!

For ten years I worked at a place that builds museum exhibits ... mostly dinosaurs, so I got to know the TRex skeleton pretty well. They were always asking me to draw new TRex skeletal poses. There's only so much you can do with a TRex pose before it starts to get mundane (they either run, walk or just stand there). So I drew a dead TRex , just for a laugh, and they went for the idea ! Now there are actually 2 lifesize BRONZE TRex skeletons that are in this pose ! Thanks for noticing the environment, I wanted to show a mini life cycle of the King of Dinosaurs!
