Description: Now that I have submitted some awesome requested tutorials today, I will end my submitting day with a lesson that I have always wanted to submit, "how to draw a brontosaurus step by step". The brontosaurus dinosaur is probably one of the most recognized and talked about of it's kind. Remember that animated cartoon movie called "The Land Before Time"? Well, the main character of the movie was in fact part of the brontosaurus family which belongs to the "sauropoda" family of dinosaurs. This species of dinosaur are known for their incredible size and harmless nature that is thought to have been the personality of any sauropoda. Three dinosaurs fall under this specie category; the brachiosaurus, diplodocus, and the apatosaurus. Now did you know that the brontosaurus was renamed to that of apatosaurus? It's true, the brontosaurus was misclassified and the misclassification was reported to the public. The name change really didn't effect the public and the public remained calling the extremely large dinosaur, a brontosaurus. Even the United States Post Office issued a dinosaur series of stamps and the four dinosaurs that they chose to use was the stegosaurus, tyrannosaurus Rex, pterandon, and the brontosaurus. Yes the post office knew that they used the wrong name for the two dinosaurs, but they said that because the general public recognized the brontosaurus for it's name, they would remain the way they are. These reptilian dinosaurs had incredibly long necks, and massive body mass. Because of the structure of the brontosaurus, physiologists have a hard time understanding how these animals were able to breath and how their heart sustained sufficient amounts of blood pressure to send oxygen to the brain. They grew to be anywhere between seventy to ninety feet long, ten to fifteen feet high, and weighed anywhere between thirty three and forty pounds. They lived during the Jurassic period and this dinosaur species have been seen in many movies on the big screen including "The Lost World" back in 1923. This tutorial will show you "how to draw a brontosaurus/apatosaurus step by step" I laid out the steps with multiple views so that you can get a good idea on what these animals looked like from different points of view. I shall be back tomorrow so stay tuned for another day of awesome tutorial submissions.
