Siroccopteryx/Coloborhynchus by Hyrotrioskjan Siroccopteryx/Coloborhynchus by Hyrotrioskjan
I heard different opinions about the status of this species, some put it into Coloborhychnus, others see it as a own genus.
But whatever it is it's definitely a interesting possible part of the Bahariya fauna.
While Alanqa was certainly a inhabitant of the swamps and plains of the ancient Egypt, Siroccopteryx/Coloborhynchus was (if it was like it's nearest relatives) a glider and lover of the ocean which maybe only visited the lagoons of Bahariya to feed on carcasses on the beaches. 

The coloration for this guy was inspired by some petrels and in difference to the other parts of this series I colored this drawing mostly with colored pencils.

Do you have a blending tool for your colors or not? I'm looking to see if i should get one and your final products are some of the best paleoart Ive seen

Pterosaurier, vor allem abgeleitete Pterodactyliden waren auch ausgesprochen unförmig auf den ersten Blick, bei Azhdarchiden
wie Quetzalcoatlus war es sogar noch extremer, dort war der Kopf bis zu 3 Meter lang aber auch 2,5 mal so lang wie der Körper.

Ja das stimmt, Azhdarchiden gehören noch mal zu einem ganz anderen Zweig als die Ornithocheiriden
Hier sieht man die Proportionen ganz gut: voices.nationalgeographic.com/…

i dont tink Siroccopteryx  and Alanqa lived in the bahariya formation , they where discover only in the kem kem beds .

I never said they are from Bahariya, but it's very likely for a fyling animal to roam both habitats

Great as always.

Wouldn't be surprised if some of these guys did venture into the lagoons sometimes, like their Liaoning relatives. Although the conditions are very different. Or perhaps I'm underestimating the derivaty between even close relatives if modern animals are any indication.

whoa....waitaminnit, the wings look odd. This is the first drawing Ive seen depicting wings folded so deep to the inside of the arms.

Siroccopteryx is smaller than I realized...or looks kinda short and  small until it opens out its wings, I guess?

Meistens ist er eher geshrink-wrapped und vor allem die Gattung Coloborhynchus im allgemeinen (für den Fall, dass er dazu gehört ;))

Really like the colors and the fluffiness of this one!

One thing though. Is there any particular reason you depicted the wing folded in this exact manner? I have seen a lot of artists drawing the wings that way, but honestly it doesn't seem realistic to me. Having the wing folded and tucked so deep under the humerus and the forearm, makes it look like there is absolutely no wing membrane attached to this part of the forelimb. Right now it looks like the elbow and most of the forelimb is absolutely free of the patagium. I am not sure if such wing folding and tucking is even possible with wing membrane attached to the posterior side of the forelimb. Other than that, I think this is one fine artwork.
