Anonymous: I'm not saying that eastern Canada is the good part, because yeah like you said all the provences have done terrible things, but I am saying that that was in the past and that most provences have improved by at least a bit so it's not really appropriate to say that all of Canada is awful, it WAS awful.

Palette Challenge in #1 : Albertosaurus
Challenged by thearbiter
Super fun colours for this one. Toughest part was trying to make it noticeably different than a T. Rex. Albertosaurus seem to have less bulky jaw bones, and their skeletons look like a lighter build than their T.Rex cousins though that could just be because they’re smaller.
I saw a lot of heavy build Albertosaurus suggestions when looking for reference, but in the end leaned more towards the Tyrell Museum’s models as they’re slimmer bodies were closest to what my guess was, and being in Alberta, it’s also sorta the Albertosaurus’s home turf.
And no feathers. Evidence still seems to suggest that the larger dinosaurs in this family would follow the pattern of Elephants and Hippos, forgoing the insulation to keep their body temperature down.
I drew Canada’s national dinosaur!
And for the record, I’m sure Primeval New World had an advisor on set, but for the life of my I can’t find one thing in my research that’s consistent with their super heavy version if it. I think they even called it T.Rex’s heavier cousin at one point which confused me for a really, really long time because it’s smaller in every way?! Faster cousin maybe?
ooh this is super lovely!! well done!
