    meyerasaurus victor was a rather small, early Jurassic pliosaur. being only 3.35 meters( 11 feet) at average length.
    the drawing looks far better then what this photos quality can portray. I kind of with I did this on blue paper. it would of been a whole lot more pronounced and have far greater abilities to add highlights. but hey, use what you have available.

    Caiuajara dobruskii is a very recently discovered tapejarid pterosaur found in brazil. was found in a large group of what is said to be 47 individuals. but scientist has estimated the entire group could of actually numbered in the hundreds.

    and just for a bit of fun, baseless speculation, I depicted a male who arrived at the breeding grounds early and creates a mound of rocks. just like adelie penguins, it would use the rocks to attract the female and then use it to build a nest. he wanted to get a little extra attention so he stands up in a brief bipedal stance and calls out to the female.

    a more accurate and considerably more detailed then my older, speculative one. this jeholopterus is drawn with a ballpoint pen. jeholopterus was a small anurognathid pterosaur. it's wing span is around three feet long and would of been covered in pycnofibers.

    The glutten of the cretaceous seas, xiphactinus was a large bony fish biult like a torpedo. Its long, sleek, hydrodynamic body strongly sugest it catch its prey with very high speeds. Fossil evidence has shown that they are not afraid to attempt predation on fish too large to swallow, and even die at the process of trying to swallow it. Just like the many peculiar fish species in our oceans and rivers

    this was made during the summer. grace, intelligence, diligence, dexterity, and pure badassery, the crow has all the traits for me to say it is one of my most favorite avian theropods ever!

    a male thalattoarchon trying to get some.
    he gently rubs his body against hers. coaxing and antagonizing her to mate. thalattoarchon was a large predatory ichthyosaur that lived during the middle Triassic. measuring over 8 meters, it was possibly one of the top predator of the seas
    (I really need to get some blue paper for these underwater scenes. it would make the picture pop even more)

    liopleurodon ferox was a mid-sized pliosaur measuring over 6 meters in length. its large jaws were suited for crushing it's prey items. which are then ripped apart using brute force due to the lack of serrated dentition.

    CForrest's post is now the beginning of a new thread for him. Let us all keep our work in separate threads. That is the intent of this section. I do no think I made that clear. No harm, no foul. :)

    Freddyman, when I created this section, I really hoped it would be used and filled up. You have surpassed anything I could have imaged. I will say that if you post any Thumbnails, I will make them full size. These pictures should be seen full size. Anyone glancing over them is loosing too much, without realizing it, so I have put all your images to full size.

    You are an amazing Artist. Please keep on doing what you are doing. Feel free to ive advice, tutorials, you can start new threads for that and invite others to join, and head a virtual class. Whatever you wish. The door is wide open for you.

    If you have or know any other artist friends, they can check out your work here if they have a Facebook account, and join, with the click of a button. I see your drawing, I wish I could see what you are seeing. It must be really beautiful in there! :)

    Without a reference? Wow - without reference is one of the hardest ways to draw in my opinion. Nice picture.
