Ornithocheirus.

One of the largest Cretaceous pterosaurs- though still dwarfed by the giant Quetzalcoatlus, whose wingspan was estimated to have been able to reach over 21 metres in length. Ornithocheirus would probably have had a wingspan of 6 metres.

Request from chocolatethunder-all-day: an Ornithocheirus.

Really felt like drawing an older male with some sort of injury or defect to the semicircle crests, then tacked on some scars and another display thingy around the eyes.

I liked the sketchy look of it, so it stayed at this stage rather than making it cleaner, but I might redraw it in the future.

This map of Scotland, by cartographer Robert Falconer, dates to 1701, just a few years before the Acts of Union bound England and Scotland together under one crown, one parliament. And here we are, centuries later, as Scots decide their future — this time without swords and muskets.

I’d rather feel wanted than needed.

A recently published photo of its skull suggests that the enigmatic “giant claw” dinosaur Deinocheirus mirificus had a face that roughly looked like this. Wow.
