Brian Andres asked me to do a painting of Sericipterus wucaiwanensis for his PhD thesis, and here it is; killing a puny and pathetically weak pterodactyloid.

Oh, just you wait you big mean rhamphorhyncoid. One day the pterodactyloids will be the dominate group of pterosaurs.

Sick!

Just wondering, could pterosaurs (like this bloke) really use their manual claws to create injury (like in this depiction)?

Finally! Ever since I learned Sericipterus existed I wanted to see this!

And I thought I was the only one who was thinking of this idea- good to see that there are also other ones who had something like this in their mind :D
I really like sericipterus, those big teeth look awesome :D

Hey John. Love your work. Any chance you might release this as a paid-for print for me?

This is really cool. Nobody ever draws pterosaurs hunting each other.

Looks almost like a Japanese print- Very cool!

Very cool. Looks like quite a brawny thing for such a small pterosaur. Is it that "scaphognathid" with those allegedly elongate hindlimbs? The femur looks almost surreal from that perspective :)

It isn't small. It's the size of a bald eagle.

Realistic shading and texturing, but outlining too. I really like it.
What inspires your pterosaur coloration and markings?

Awesome! I love your color choices.

That is a frightening little sonofabitch and no mistake. Any chance of a skeletal reconstruction? :)

I like the "muchaesque" of the drawing. Really nice.

On the ground, too! Nice.
"Killing Ground."

The one looks decidedly happy not to have been caught.

Maybe it's the Judas pterodactyloid.
