edit: updated the picture- did some digital editing. I like this version better. Starting work on my final children's book project... which is going to be a full book by the end of the semester. AAAAAAH.
Steampunk dinosaurs. How bout that!
Watercolor and a bit of gouache and acrylic, 9 x 18 in.
YEEEAHHHHHH Pteranodon riding! This is just adorable in so many ways. One note (if you know this already plz disregard) is that pterosaur front limbs/wings were actually digigrade, with the wrist joint located far from the actual toe bones, as in a deer or horse. I think it's understandable that particular detail is ommited in most pterosaur illustrations because it looks quite...odd. But also awesome [link][link] . Just in case you wanted to know :3 I love pterosaurs
and now that I'm looking at it, I think his left wing is almost correct considering that wrist joint. I mostly just need to go back and redefine the shape of the right wing to make this work, if I'm looking at this correctly. but really thank you SO much for pointing that out because I guess I didn't notice when I was looking at references earlier!
