Inland Gull

The Inland Gull naturally evolved from the Silver gull (C. n. novaehollandiae), and it spread out to become less water reliant. As it became less water reliant it's main source of food is any sort of small animal. They also live in small groups rather than large flocks, and their feet are only half-webbed, as they spend less and less time in water.

Nea and all of its inhabitants are owned by Hyrotrioskjan.

Nice! May I ask how you create your art?
PLASTOSPLEEN's avatar
I've been thinking of doing a video on it.

You should. How do you make it though? Is it watercolour?

Pencil under watercolours.

I was thinking earlier about inland albatross and desert white stork, but when I read that Nea atmosphere is less dense than Earth (harder to fly, especially if you are big creature), I abandoned this idea. But gull, as smaller makes sense and is quite simmilar to albatros idea. I am glad someone designed it :D

Thanks :) The albatross could work with a smaller body and larger wings.

Thanks. I was inspired by juvenile Silver Gulls.
