~Please comment before you fave, comments make me draw more~

~Do not copy, trace, or steal~

Believe it or not, I got this done a while ago. I'm so proud of this, for this is my first pterodactyl anthro, first anthro with wings for arms and one of my fave prehistoric reptiles I've drawn.

It's a real species, though the actual one I'm showing here may be a nomus nudum: [link]

Other than that, it was an interesting piece to create: I had an idea for this character over the summer, and starting drawing perliminaries on scrap paper before I went into my internship. The whole idea was to create an anthro with wings for arms, since I thought that would convey a more easier and interesting approach to a pterodactyl anthro. I also wanted to show some of the world she would inhabit, so I decided on a full background for her. I chose a beach, since many pterodactyl species lived in and around seaside areas. I also wanted to convey a prehistoric air to this, thus the clothing and leg guards. The color choices were a little odd, I think I should've given her the brown and a darker or lighter color for her overall, but I'm pleased with how her wings and markings came out.

The story behind this girl is that she's a fisher of sorts and dive bomber. She is of the air, an aerial acrobat if you will, thus her short hair and leg guards. Here she is strolling down a Jurrasic shoreline, streching her wings, getting ready for another flight.

I really like her design and color pallette :love:

I would feel honored if you would allow me one day draw her or digitalize :)

Welcome :aww:

Regarding my question. Would you be alright with a little fan art from me :D ?

It might be worth noting that, lack of pycnofibers aside, this pretty much hits all my qualifications for a perfect anthro pterosaur.

I had to look that up, but if I ever make a remake of this, I'll make sure to make it look like she has some actual pyncofibers, though I think she does have them.
Thanks

No problem; great work. If you do, keep in mind it's mostly on the torso and not the wings.

Hey, I like this a lot! She seems so carefree and happy.
I also like how you dealt with the clothing problem of having wings instead of arms. Very nice.
overall, very pleasing to my eyes! keep it up!

I keep telling myself I need to get working on a clothing tutorial I was thinking up of, for fantasy clothing.

Lovely work! I really like the design of the anthro and the background as well. I'm sorry I haven't been commenting much, I haven't been able to come on here for long periods of time like I used to. But I am planning on commenting on more of your work. I also want to go through and comment on some of your re-posts. I won't have time to comment on them all but I can at least select some that are favorites for me and comment on those. I hope that is alright! Anyway, I hope you are doing well.

I love how she's 'taking a stroll'. You couldn't take a stroll in a world where dinosaurs existed, you'd get your ass eaten.
