You should really add credit for the artist whose work you used in this piece, Peter Trusler. https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/article/truth-of-the-pelagornis-pseudotooth

Thank you for the complement.
This was the one I was not happy about because I first did it with a pelican neck.
But that looked horrible wrong to me,so this is my vision of what a pelagornis could look like.

I think that lack a little of neck, but overall it looks great.

I find the skeleton of this Pelagornis resembles an Albatross more then that of a Pelican
So I used a Albatross as example and they don't have a very visible neck .

Glad you like it......saw some drawings of it but with a pelican neck.
But when I looked at the skeleton its neck did not seem so long so...

are you kidding? I LOVE IT! :D

That is a big relieve to me......because I did not like the idea of that long neck one bit.
That skeleton did remind me of an albatross so I did use them as a guide.
Did make the wings twice the length they had on the original picture  and changed the beak a bit.
