Nice try, but there is a reason one doesn´t make skeletals from that angle, basing on images from the web. I suggest you to first read some publications about coelophysid anatomy, then search for skeletals or mounts of related animals and roughly base your lophostropheus on them.

With something as fragmentary as Lophostropheus, it would be better to just modify the skeletal reconstruction of a relative, rather than attempt to create one from scratch...

it is a copyright violation to modify another persons skeletal. I fear even using them in out contex is not fully legal, but I guess as long as one doesn´t reupload them or even modify them including a link or an [IMG] is not dramatic

I looked at Coelophysis skeletal, during making it.

Back to the topic, just post the dinosautr skeletal restorations

Mix and matching the skeletals of others, specifically those with non-CC copyright is just not cool.

I'm not the author of this picture, I just found it accidentally.

How accurate is this calculating with lengths os 1.5 m (T. rex) and 1.95 m (Giga)?
I mean if we say the skull of Giga is 1.95 m long in the picture, then how long is the skull of T. rex in the picture?
I mean I want to know cm accuracy.

About 150 cm. Although I think it has been debunked that the skull of Giganotosaurus could reach such length.

This would be more convincing.

I know the 1.95 m figure is outdated, but I just want to know how long is the skull of the T. rex in this picture if we say the skull of Giga is 1.95 m. As I said I want cm accuracy, so are you sure about the 150 cm figure? If it's 149 or 151 cm or any other figure, please don't round it, I wan't to know it precisely.

If that Giganotosuarus skull is 195cm in greatest length, the T. rex skull would be 149cm up to the quadrate and 154cm up to the paraoccipital.

Am I the only one who finds something on Mapusaurus to be weird?

That skeletal is not accurate, the scale between elements is wrong in the case of the whole forelimb and shoulder region, I haven't checked how the rest of it fares but I wouldn't expect it to be very accurate either.
