This guy resides at the zoo, near the lions and tigers, in a predator educational display. When I browsed through the user names and got to "rex" I immediately thought of this statue. Took shots from a variety of angles after waiting for endless children to stop playing with/on him, and this was my favorite, since the light behind him made it look like he had glowing eyesockets. Only wish this were an advanced challenge as I would love to burn out a few things in the background and I could have made his teeth more detailed, but I still like this version.
