I was going to say the same thing about the third digit...

Well done, though.

Cute little bugger!

Nicely done! Looks like Epi is the new hype among the paleoartists. I should make one too ;)

I'm not surprised. It's a bizarro little critter. Fun to draw, as well.

Just a question: you gave your Epi fingers of almost equal sizes. Scansoriopterygids had typically a very long third digit (it was suggested they used it the same way as aye-ayes). Is there any reason for this?

Yes. I know its scansoripterygid affinities, but until I'm convinced that it either possess the digit (the hands aren't well preserved)or that the digit is definately common to the group, I'll leave it out.I can always update it.
