I don't plan to, but once I'm more active again with some free time I might give it a go!

It looks like you've got quite a few now! :D

I just looked through and saw your pegasus skeleton as well! I'm very impressed ^_^

I've never written a critique before but the impact of this piece has compelled me!

Your attention to anatomy here has me in awe. I've been studying anatomy for years, and this piece is so satisfying to look at!

The first thing I see is that you connected the wing to the chest and not the shoulder. You've made the forelegs legs connect behind the wings separately, and it looks completely true to the function of both birds and equines while appearing natural. Great job!

The feathering pattern of the wings is realistic and you've created an interesting blend of feathers and fur across the body. The individual feathers are detailed down to the vanes! The feathered feet are a nice touch and I love how you've placed the extra digits on the hindlimb where we would see the chestnut in a real horse.

Just the sheer amount of time you must have put into this piece... what a project! Awesome job on it, I don't see a single thing I would change <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="392" title=":-) (Smile)"/>

Overall, I really enjoyed your interpretation of a pegasus!

Overall I think this is an excellent blend of Equine, Avian, and anthropomorphic anatomy. The arrangement and proportions of the bones are very believable and natural in appearance.

The fusion of vertebrae and enlargement of the sternum are critical for flight and are very wisely included. It does seem that the furcula is absent at the neck, another bone seen in avians but not equines that is an adaptation for flight.

The neck and lumbar vertebrae appear to be perfect reproductions of the equine spine, having 7 vertebrae in each category. You seem to have taken artistic license by having 9 pairs ribs; most mammals will have 13 pairs, and horses have 18 pairs. (I imagien mlp universe equines to have 13 ribs, since they are usually shown with shorter backs than typical equines) The ribs are usually narrower than yours and are closer together. However, if you have done this intentionally and made fewer larger, hollow ribs as an adaptation for flight I do not see a problem <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":-)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="392" title=":-) (Smile)"/>

I find it very interesting that you have included a kneecap on the hindlimbs, many people forget about those. In horses those large kneecaps are part of a mechanism which locks the leg into position so a horse can sleep standing up. I'm curious whether you think pegasi would use them for this as well?

I was almost going to point out that the extra digits of the hindlimb were too high up on the leg, but then I realized you had given them their own metatarsal bones. Very nice touch! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>

The skull appears a good blend between the equine and human influences you are aiming for. I notice the human teeth rather than equine teeth. I don't really have any comments here.

My last thoughts are that the tail seems perhaps a bit shorter than the average equine's tail. My intuition would be that a pegasi would have a longer tail for the purposes of flight control, and maybe thicker bones in the tail to provide the extra strength required for this purpose.

You have obviously put a great amount of thought and study into this. It's the most functional pegasi anatomy I can recall seeing before. Great work! <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/b/b…" width="15" height="15" alt=":D" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="366" title=":D (Big Grin)"/>
