Pterosuchia: Ranacephalidae
Perhaps the most successful group of Pterosuchia in terms of diversity, the Ranacephalidae are an extremely widespread family, covering a wide range of habitats and lifestyles. Most have a wingspan of around between 12 and 20 inches and weigh only a few ounces, though there are exceptions. All are covered with a thick, soft layer of integument, neither fur nor feathers. The vanes of the wing are generally rather long, and the group are universally excellent fliers. For the most part they are nocturnal or crepuscular insect eaters, hawking moths and flies out of the air with their excellent vision and the sensitive bristles around their wide, frog like mouths. Larger species may take terrestrial prey like mice or lizards, or prey on small birds or bats, with the largest taking prey of several pounds and scavenging on larger carcasses. While smaller species often roost together in flocks and are highly social, the largest species are solitary or live in mated pairs. Eggs are mostly laid

Sylvannus: Rynchoprionidae
Sawbills
The true giants of the Carnornithes, these are all massive creatures, the smallest species weighing nearly a ton. Long skulled with heavily toothed bills, members of this family are omnivorous, but predisposed to feeding on meat when available. Most are rather long tailed, to counterbalance the heavy anterior. The arms and shoulders are large and heavily built, with the claws of the hands being extremely prominent. They are generally present in forested regions and mountains, though a few species range a short distance into grasslands and other, more open habitat types. They have a nearly cosmopolitan range, with species found found all over the world (in places of suitable habitat) with the exception the far south. Mostly solitary creatures, the majority of species have little contact with each other outside of breeding or parental care. Females are larger and more aggressive than males, in some cases nearly double the weight. The largest member of this group weighs approxima

Sylvannus: Dolichodactylae
Sickle-Wings
A family of rather short legged, heavy bodied browsers present across much of the northern hemisphere. They are found in a wide variety of habitats, from cold, high alpine regions to warm subtropical marshes. Size ranges from 50 lb. denizens of deep woodland to 8 ton giants. Features present across the family include the extremely large, slightly curved claws on all three wing digits that give them their name. Their necks are long with fairly small, equine heads and short, nipping beaks, though there are a few exceptions to this. They have, unusually, four toes on each foot, though the fourth toe is reduced in most and at a slight angle from the rest. The males tend to be strikingly patterned and to have large fans of feathers on their tails, which are of middling length. Some also have brightly colored patches of skin or feathering on their necks, which are displayed when the gular sack is expanded during mating rituals. Similar patches are found on the underside of the a

Alright peeps. I suck at most drawing, I'm just letting you known.
I can get a rough idea down but not much more than that. I need to know if anyone is willing to help me out with creature and character design. I provide ideas and descriptions and setting, and in return I get basic drawings. I'm not asking for realistic or anything. I just need proof of concept stuff so I know the ideas I'm stuffing into my book would actually look good if there was any illustration added. Major point. I cannot provide monetary compensation at any time in the near future. Don't have the capability right now. If your art turns out to be awesome I promise ill give credit where it's due, but I can't promise much more than that.

Love the animals and speculative evolution on this sight, I joined to collaborate, and to gain some inspiration for a book I'm working on.

Between you and me, do you believe in chaos theory?

I believe in parts of it but also think given the infinite fractal nature of the multiverse that great differences in origin can still have very similar results.
