Hey Jaime, I used this as reference for a reconstruction, I especially found the skull and teeth useful. Credit was given of course. Thanks!

How accurate is this diagram?

Based on the holotype skeleton, so fairly accurate. Measured from the wall-mount, so maybe slightly off on proportions, but not significantly so.

It's a beautiful drawing of an ugly pterosaur lol!

I really like how you drew the legs.... those are not ugly at all.

It would definitely win any pterosaur beauty contest. So, is it ugly?

It's one of my favorite pterosaurs, I even based one of my birds off of it.

damn cwazy pterosaurs!

by the way, why do you color the teeth black? on smaller skeletals the teeth are so small in relation to the picture, that the pen-lines themselves grow thicker than the teeth, but on such a larg image you could easily have left the teeth white?

solidox-white!

The teeth are left black just for a matter of elegance. When drawing the teeth white, then outlined, at smaller scales they do become black, so it is nice to be consistent when drawing them this way. However, when drawing teeth that are covered by a cheek or other fleshy anatomy, I will draw them in white accordingly, such as ornithischians or if I ever get around to drawing mammal skeletons this way.

ah well, makes sense!


you know what the best thing about this is?
good skeletals have long been the hardest-to-get good dinosaur information, ESPECIALLY for the 'common man' dinosaur enthusiast.
now, its a whole deal easyer to come across them :]

For some reason, I'm laughing. Puffy pterahead.
