ravine- river wyvern by nebezial ravine- river wyvern by nebezial
god i have fallen in love with pterosaurs over time.

generally i don't really draw direct inspiration from things. by that i mean i don't just see something and think, ill use this as a base for something else. similarities as such tend to be mostly coincidental, which is the case wits a lot of designers

but pterosaurs are just glorious
their head shapes and crests are just crazy cool
archosaurmusings.wordpress.com…

however there is gonna be a distinctive pterosaur vibe to standard wyverns in ravine, not counting the burnt ones...also known by their scientific name

weirdverns XD
as shown here


and yes, once ravine reaches, lets say six books , i will publish a comprehensive bestiary book :) always loved those
btw they call this little fella, the river wyvern or often, the angler

This picture is quite similar with two McFarlane dragons mixed together. McFarlane dragons serie 1 Eternal clan dragon [limited edition as well] ( I called him Mira) and McFarlane dragons serie 6 Ice clan dragon ( I called him Jagger). Mixed together.

so instead the obvious inspiration...which was a pterosaur you went and dug out 2 completely unrelated ones that i never even saw XD you know if you said it reminded you of a banshee from avatar or something that actually has the body type, i would say, sure, both were inspired by the latest studies of pterosaurs

these however...nah.

don't get me wrong, i appreciate that you might see it... but i don't XD

just googled it and...no... it doesnt XD... its a wyvern so the body type is there... and even that...

 that thing has weird small stunted wings, a big head with a very wide beak, and instead of a head crest has a sort of a jurassic park dilophosaur collar thing going on.

its a cool looking beastie, don't get me wrong... but  as for look a likes....no...hell, id sooner take a , reminds me of an avatar banshee comparison  XD
