god i have fallen in love with pterosaurs over time.

generally i don't really draw direct inspiration from things. by that i mean i don't just see something and think, ill use this as a base for something else. similarities as such tend to be mostly coincidental, which is the case wits a lot of designers

but pterosaurs are just glorious
their head shapes and crests are just crazy cool
archosaurmusings.wordpress.com…

however there is gonna be a distinctive pterosaur vibe to standard wyverns in ravine, not counting the burnt ones...also known by their scientific name

weirdverns XD
as shown here


and yes, once ravine reaches, lets say six books , i will publish a comprehensive bestiary book :) always loved those
btw they call this little fella, the river wyvern or often, the angler

Pterosaurs are evolutionary aesthetic masterpieces, I love that you have dragons with similar vibes :heart:

So this is what they normally look like. It's actually kind of cute compared to the weirdvern.

This picture is quite similar with two McFarlane dragons mixed together. McFarlane dragons serie 1 Eternal clan dragon [limited edition as well] ( I called him Mira) and McFarlane dragons serie 6 Ice clan dragon ( I called him Jagger). Mixed together.

so instead the obvious inspiration...which was a pterosaur you went and dug out 2 completely unrelated ones that i never even saw XD you know if you said it reminded you of a banshee from avatar or something that actually has the body type, i would say, sure, both were inspired by the latest studies of pterosaurs

these however...nah.

don't get me wrong, i appreciate that you might see it... but i don't XD
