Nyctosaurus by EmperorDinobot Nyctosaurus by EmperorDinobot
Ok so the crest isn't on the right proportions, since it should be bigger. But oh well. This pterosaur (at least this species) had a huge sail like crest that could possibly be held together by a membrane. This pterosaur also lost its hand claws, which is strange. It's considered to be the ultimate pterosaur evolution. Any more comments you wanna make?

Finally I got rid of those obnoxious lines on top of the drawing.

pterosaurs aren't dinosaurs. dinosaurs are exclusive ground animals with a definite skeletal structure. Pterosaurs are just way different lol.

I don´t think it had a sail on its crest. It lacked the necessary attachment points for the sot tissue.

Considering this, I'm wondering how pterosaurs would have evolved if they hadn't gone extinct.

That is one interesting question, and I too have been creating speculative pterosaurs for a while. Because Spec is still alive and they recently accepted pterosaurs, some of my designs will eventually be canon

I'm sure the females have smaller crests.

So bitchin :D this rules.. these things are so amazingly weirdly proportioned XD

I know I've seen them with fingers though. I wonder if they just got bitten off sometimes ;0

Not long enough? My God... :o I'm gonna have to look into this! I don't see how that crest could facillitate flight at all- very weird.

Besides the crest not being long enough it looks fine.
