“Northern Tyrant King” features Alaska's very own cousin of the infamous Tyrannosaurus rex. Nanuqsaurus was discovered on Alaska's North Slope in or around 2014. At the time, Nanuqsaurus was describes as a diminutive, pygmy tyrannosaur. New and upcoming evidence now suggest the animal described earlier as a pygmy was in fact a juvenile of a much larger animal. “Northern Tyrant King” represents new ongoing discoveries in multiple locations of Alaska concerning this ancient apex predator including size, primitive feathers, sexual dimorphism as well as other soon to be announced aspects featured within the canvas. These new discoveries will be shared once the scientific announcements are made public and papers published.
The full scale sculpture will combine both the traditional arts of oil painting and sculpture as well as the cutting edge 3D digital skull reconstruction brilliantly recreated by Jesse Pruitt of Buzzsaw Studio’s, of which will be sculpted over in clay for the utmost accuracy. The projects scientific adviser is once again the dedicated Dr. Pat Druckenmiller UAF Museum of the North. Once completed the dioramic painting will combine with the sculptural aspects and will create the impression of a full sized animal while taking up much less exhibition space. Other new specie of smaller arctic dinosaurs will also be sculpted and incorporated within the dioramic foreground.
Dr. Pat Druckemiller describes the Nanuqsaurus as currently described. For the second part of the video on the new material currenlty being reveiwed - check out the membership page! (Nice background painting - another Havens piece!)
