I do a fair bit of drawing, and i have decided to share some of this with you guys. For starters a couple of quick sketches (both done in less than 30 minutes).

A Raptor (a sapient dromaeosaurid dinosaur from my Pirate Lords universe). Generally armed with Lances and Muskets.

I like the raptor guy. If feet are giving you trouble, try looking up photos of chicken's feet or finding them in the meat section of the grocery store. Reference is really helpful, especially for "grounding" objects you're trying to draw. Good luck!

It's a civilisation in his universe. Click 'Terran Sphere' in his sig.

Loving the Robot, Zor. Is the missile unit separate or does it bolt on the tank?

The Machine Gun Turret and the missile turret are modular units that can be dropped into the body.

Raptor Lancer, the primary catagory of Raptor Soldiers. Raptors don't have conventional cavalry (they do have pack beasts and have domesticated some fairly large dinosaurs to serve as War Elephant annolouges), but they are fast on their feet over fairly short distances.

That what i was thinking, the best thing to use against Raptor Lancer attacks in melee it is best to use pike formations. However, Raptors do have guns of their own.

Marine Dinosaur of the Hadrosaur Catagory. The inspiration of this comes from the fact that people commonly mix up Mesozoic marine reptiles with dinosaurs, so i wondered what a marine dinosaur would look like. This creature is a manatee like beast in its eating habbits, grazing on sea plants spending most of it's life in water, comming ashore to lay eggs. These also exist on Pacifica, the Pirate Lords world and are a major meat source to the Raptors.

About the mermaid study: what is exactly concealed for work safeness? I presume the gender organs?

Yes. I know the forum rules and the concept of pornography entails.

Eisenstadt Battleship Prince Wernher (yes, i Missspelled Wernher) from my Pirate Lords story. Largely based off the Japanese Battleship Mikasa. It also has four of those old fashion torpedo launchers that fire off the Torpedo over the side, several depth charge launchers and a bunch of Anti-Air Gatling guns to deal with Tengu attacks. It also has a few Merfolk onboard which are useful (Merfolk are not open ocean creatures) for doing various underwater tasks.

This one is pretty nice though; it reminds me of some of da Vinci's sketches.

Timeline-3177, July 13th 2212: The Imperial Japanese Space Navy's seventh fleet has entered 61 Ursae Majoris system, led by the Empire's most prestegious of warships, the IJSN Yamato (5th ship to bear the name) under command of Admiral Takahiro. Five Months ago, Kaiser Dietrich-III (senior most leader of European Alliance) ordered a suprise invasion of the Empire's colony of Shin Hokkaido. Now the Empire is the agressor, moving against Port Tripitz, one of the Alliance's most substanial naval bases. This new war has caught the attention of several other powers. While the isolationist United States is nearly universally against entering this conflict beyond trade and the Cario Pact's leadership sees this war as being none of their consern, the British Commonwealth leans towards it's old eastern ally while the newly emerged Amazonian Federation, with it's close ties to the Alliance is under increased pressure to bring itself into the fray against the Empire. The USSR's Politburo, with longstanding greviences with both the Empire and the Alliance is observing developments closely and the Soviets remains a wildcard in this conflict.

A few words of adivce: It would be "Eisenstädtische Marine" and "Fürstentum von Eisenstadt" and the boar would either be a "Keiler" or "Eber".

However, why would Eisentadt select a boar? Going by the name, it should use other symbols.

The name is in English because it's a common thing to translate such names, in the Enlish if people would use Principality of Liechtenstein. That and i like the word Principality.

As for the Boar, well i like Boars, they seem sutiably germanic and what would have been used in it's place? This is a fictional nation (despite their being a real life city named such that i did not know of at the time) and Eisenstadlt just means "Iron City".
