Fossil footprints found in Denali National Park revealed that at least two species of pterosaur (ancient flying reptiles that were "cousins" to dinosaurs) roamed the north lands and flew the chilly skies of Cretaceous Alaska around 70 million years ago. Pictured here is the larger of the two species - a large azhdarchid modeled after Quetzalcoatlus.
Day three (or should that be "pthree"?) of the #Sciart #Tweetstorm - a little late. This day's sketchdump includes two character design roughs for an animation project on the back burner tentatively titled "Flapling" which chronicles the first tentative flight of a newly hatched rhamphorhynchus.

If you missed the first round of the Anurognathus tee (painted up in the same color and pattern as our late kitty Kutuzov), there's still a chance! We just need a total of ten people to click "I still want one!" and provide their contact info to restart the campaign!
Update: campaign concluded. Thank you everyone!
