    I agree. You have some real talent there that can't be taught. :)

    Leaellynasaura amicagraphica is a small ornithopod that lived in the early Cretaceous period. it is renowned for having the longest tail in proportion to body size out of any ornithischian. it nearly triples the entire body length. the tail is so long in my drawing, I couldn't get an appropriate snapshot of the entire picture [​IMG] .
    what's also amazing is unlike most ornithischians, its tail is surprisingly flexible. possibly serving as a means of insulation while sleeping since its time period has extended periods of day light and night.

    just some cheap Crayola color pencils I get from Walmart. I'm planning on upgrading into prisma color pencils and markers though.

    For only using cheap Crayola pencils, your coloured pictures are AWESOME!!!
    They look like the type of illustrations that you would see in most gallery books!!!
    KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!

    if you can afford them, I would go with Faber Castell pencils. They are more expensive, but the quality is well worth it. The quality of prismacolors is going downhill. I bought some about a year ago, and have had numerous issues

    You can draw in the genitalia, unless the lack of it turned out to be what caused the extinctions!! :)

    actually, given the close relations of avian and non- avian dinosaurs, its most likely its genitalia would be retractable and would be hidden by a layer of plumage.

    It gets cold in New England, and in the 1970's, plumage was vogue. Plumbing into plumage could become quite a hairy situation. :)

    I have spectacular news. a new species of gregarious tapejarid pterosaur is discovered in brazil. its name is Caiuajara dobruskii. it was found in a huge bone bed that featured thousands of bones. scientist had identified 47 of them, but have speculated that the entire group can number in the hundreds. this pterosaur would give us the proper insight on how pterosaurs could of behaved, possibly communicated, as well as showing evidence of sexual distinction and dimorphism.

    this might be my next drawing
