Just in time for Dinovember!

You may have heard of the #30DayDinosaurDrawingChallenge, a popular drawing challenge centered on dinosaurs. Well, I'm going to make something quite similar to it; one of the main differences is that it won't focus on dinosaurs, focusing on other prehistoric reptiles from the Triassic, Jurassic, and Cretaceous instead! Only a few entries will allow you to incorporate dinosaurs into your drawings. 

Day 1: Favorite pterosaur
Day 2: Favorite plesiosaur
Day 3: Favorite ichthyosaur
Day 4: Favorite prehistoric crocodylomorph
Day 5: Favorite prehistoric squamate
Day 6: Favorite prehistoric testudine
Day 7: Favorite overall prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile
Day 8: Favorite modern non-dinosaurian reptile
Day 9: Accurate prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile stylized in 4 ways
Day 10: A hybrid of any two prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptiles
Day 11: A prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile moving gracefully in its environment (think things such as flying pterosaurs, swimming plesiosaurs, walking paracrocodylomorphs, etc.)
Day 12: A prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile laying eggs/giving birth 
Day 13: A prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile sleeping
Day 14: Wild speculation *
Day 15: Make up a believable non-dinosaurian reptile
Day 16: Any two prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptiles near each other (no fighting, no anachronisms)
Day 17: Any two prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptiles fighting each other (just don't go too far, no anachronisms, intraspecific combat is allowed)
Day 18: Draw a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile alongside another type of prehistoric animal (can include mammals/dinosaurs/amphibians/arthropods/mollusks, no anachronisms) *
Day 19: Draw any modern non-dinosaurian reptile in an outdated, inaccurate, or controversial manner
Day 20: Draw a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile in an ecological niche it could belong *
Day 21: Draw any good pop culture representation of a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile (doesn't have to be accurate this time, just very memorable)
Day 22: Draw a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile with a somewhat flashy but still believable color scheme
Day 23: Draw a mythical creature based off a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile
Day 24: Draw a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile in a large aviary/aquarium/vivarium
Day 25: A prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile eating *
Day 26: Baby prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile
Day 27: A prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile from the side, front, and top views
Day 28: Modern descendant of an extinct reptile order (Pterosauria, Plesiosauria, Ichthyosauria, Protorosauria, Placodontia, Nothosauroidea, etc.)
Day 29: Draw a prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptile doing mundane things (scratching itself, cooling off, warming up, hiding in a semi-enclosed space, etc.)
Day 30: Scenery with prehistoric non-dinosaurian reptiles *

*Can include a few dinosaurs or other animals

Lol, I have now started drawing but all of these are so HARD to determine.
day 1. Fav pterosaur: my reaction: .........Hatze...no....Pterorhync..nope....Harpacto..nah....ugh

Which one do you like the most out of all of them?
Reply
:iconpaleosir:
paleosir Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I've drawn Pterorhynchus (BUT I can't submit it due to some weird problems with my phone).
Because:
1. it looks very unique.
2. It has a huge hyoid bone...and in general, huge hyoids mean very strong tongues....I wonder what it used it for.
3. wunkongpterids man!
4. Both Hatzegopteryx and Harpactognathus are becoming a tad overhyped imo.

:iconpcawesomeness:
PCAwesomeness Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016
Noice!

Also, I think it probably used that big tongue for... picking insects out of the bark?

Was it long enough to do that task?

Also, I can see how the 2 H's are being hyped up.

:iconpaleosir:
paleosir Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Eh, Pterorhynchus had teeth that look suspiciously piscivore.
Okay, brace yourself, we're entering highly speculative areas here:
What if it did have a Woodpecker tongue (basically a jagged harpoon) to catch fish?!

Was it long enough? We don't know because we don't have a fossilized tongue, but the huge hyoid suggests it was big and strong so I suppose maybe.

Yeah, Imma total hipster, those are so mainstreamXD

PCAwesomeness Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016
Ah; must have been thinking of other wukongopterids when I thought of Pterorhynchus' diet.

However, that would be pretty damn amazing!

Also, may I assume why the two H's are a bit overrated?
Reply
:iconpaleosir:
paleosir Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah, Pterorhynchus could also have been insectivorous, but looking at those teeth, I dare say they were at least capable of catching fishies.

Yeah, I once made a drawing of that, but someone spilled coffee on it

I think because of their allegded adaptations for macropredation.

PCAwesomeness Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2016
1: Cool.

2: Damn.

3: Let's see...

Hatzegopteryx: Just because one study said it had a more robust neck than Quetzalcoatlus and Arambourgiania, a certain paleo-whack job has been saying that its neck was as short as the stump of a fallen tree, and that it was able to snap 500 sauropod necks per hour because of this "amazing" feature.

Harpactognathus: Due to its supposed adaptations towards predatory, it is commonly compared to the pop culture "pterodactyls", and is often reconstructed as being able to swoop on small animals its size and snatch them from the ground with its toothy beak. Why not give it the same superpowers as the outdated Darwinopterus? After all, it's pretty much the same thing, but it makes more sense than this bullcrap!

Sorry, I don't think I have the time to do it.
I do appreciate the invitation, and don't hesitate in sending another in the future.
I might be less busy by then (And the reason I don't do much art lately is due to the fact my wacom tablet (it's pen) is broken. Probably by Christmas I'll have it fixed).

My days are 8 hours long, and I get home at 6PM so yeah, I'm usually too tired/have too little time during the week.
Only weekends I can draw.
