Beer mat sketches by Dontknowwhattodraw94 Beer mat sketches by Dontknowwhattodraw94
Some sketches I made during the weekend at a confirmation party.
Obviously no references used so it won't be so accurate. Top to bottom:

Bullet; Green Two horses and a Stegosaurus.

Bullet; Green Remember that badass Walking With Beasts intro where the Basilosaurus eats you and you disappear into its mouth?  Tried to do my version of it. Yes, that tail is too skinny. In case you haven't read :icon105697:'s post on Basilosaurus, go read it.
Also a Cryolophosaurus.

Bullet; Green Hatzegopteryx and a Mosasaurus ready to get some marine croc for dinner.

Bullet; Green Smilodon with partly covered sabres (lowered mouth corner). Edmontosaurus and its not so duck-like duck bill. 

Bullet; Green Basal Ceratopsid, Archaeoceratops or so, next to Vouivria damparisensis. (that new Brachiosaurid) 

Bullet; Green A chalicothere and her foal(?). An adult titanosaur not being impressed by some puny Carcharodontosaurids.

Nice! Love the Cryolophosaurus.
I've felt kinda affiliated with that genus ever since I answered a "What dinosaur are you?" quiz and getting a Cryolophosaurus every time. Granted, it was probably a mostly BS quiz, but still.
Plus I always think of Seth from Dinosaur King (my guilty anime pleasure) whenever I think of Cryolophosaurus. But yeah.

I think you talked about that before.

 Most excellent work '94! (I'm particularly fond of the very first image, where a prehistoric equine gets to glimpse the Big Things that are to come for its kindred; it's just too cute to take second place but one must say that I'm also fond of your Chalicothere duo and the study in predatory frustration right next to them).

 On a related note, it is actually quite interesting to speculate on the proper terms for specimens of extinct species (in terms of Males & Females & Infants); some species are fairly straightforward - Cave Bears, for instance, which would logically number Boars and Sows and Cubs amongst their ranks (modern Ursines being sufficiently near relations) - yet without even going as far back as the Dinosaurs we come to species that have no living relations, like the Amphicyonidae, and which combine features from just about every modern lineage of mammalian predators in some degree (canine, feline and ursine).

 Now what one Earth is one to call Males, Females and Juveniles of such a species?:o (Eek) 

 Having said that sometimes naming is easy: for example it seems reasonably straightforward to dub male tyrannosaurs "Rexes" females "Tyrants" and infants "scions" (there would also seem to be only one possible name for a group of Tyrannosaurs so far as my sense of the melodramatically-approrpiate is concerned - a Terror).

Thank you :)

True, what term to pick is quite difficult for things that look like nothing we know from today.
I guess for bear dogs you can call the juveniles cubs, but for males and females I'd have no idea.

I'd call a group of Tyrannosaurids a Tyranny for obvious reasons.

 A very solid choice! (one could also refer to such an assembly as a "Dynasty" assuming that such a group is likely to be grounded in a close genetic relationship).

 As for the Bear-Dogs, one could employ a canine name for males and an ursine one for females (so a Male bear-dog would be a dog, whereas the female would be a sow) or vice versa (boar and bitch) as a nod to their non-technical nickname; alternatively you could skew more feline and refer to a Tom and a Queen.

At first I thought that Basilosaurus is basically just a realistic sperm whale with very cartoony proportions, as well as whiskers on it's snout.

As it turns out, it's just the perspective and it's actually a Basilosaurus. Well, I do like the whiskers you added on it's snout, since I am aware that dolphin calves have whiskers in real life.

Also, shouldn't the Hatzegopteryx have a line for it's beak actually showing? You didn't add a line where the beak is at, and it makes me think that animal is beakless with that strange, lipped snout, but it's actually the beak with textures connecting the body. No offense, I'm just trying to give you some point.

Well, is the big horse a modern day horse? If it is, then in my opinion, it's head shape seems incorrect for a modern horse. Or is it just some more primitive prehistoric horse?
Well, I can easily tell that the little horse is a Hyracotherium.

Well, that's my thoughts on these sketches so far, many of them look great, and I especially love the smilodon with partly-covered lips, since I think it looks alot more plausible to me than the fully covered lips version.

Thank you :)

True about dolphin calves. Even baleen whales like humpbacks keep them throughout their life. Basilosaurus is so primitive that it isn't that far of a stretch that it even had some more hair here and there.

It indeed should.

It's suppposed to be a modern one, but horses are hard to draw...

No problem. ^^

Well, I didn't really know Baleen whales had kept their whiskers, are the whiskers the hairs (baleen, hopefully I am correct on what they're called) in their mouth?

Well, It's at least hard to draw horses for you, I do stylized drawings, so stylized horses (as well as other stylized animals) are easier for me to draw.

No, baleen is made of something else IIRC. I'm talking about real whiskers: consciousbreathadventures.com/…
Those bumpbs on their face are actually large hair follicles and on each bump there's a small stiff whisker. There're also some whiskers at the very front of the snouth if you look closely at the picture.

I just looked up baleen once again, It turns out I actually forgot what they are actually made of, they are actually very advanced forms of teeth, which are now designed as baleen from mouthes of filter-feeders.

And now I see that the bumps actually have whiskers, that is a very good point there. If I did a more realistic whale, I would add very small whiskers since they had them in real life, but if I did a more stylized whale, I would have them without any visible whiskers, since most stylized whales lack whiskers since most cartoon artists didn't know they had whiskers.

Adding them is only needed when they're drawn from really close. I you look at my other Basilosaurus you'll see it has no visible whiskers but they're actually there.

Perspective and depth are a couple of the biggest pains for artists, and yet you pull them off so well.

When I draw sketches quickly, they are messy like child drawing. I need hours to distil them to this level.

Not in my case. I can draw good quality pictures, but they take LOOOOONG time to emerge. Days, weeks, sometimes months. The more practice I have, the longer time I spend on each drawing.

I can say the same for my drawings too. Luckily my sketches are still the usual 5 to 15 minutes.
