Ocean Runner by Eurwentala Ocean Runner by Eurwentala
Thalassodromeus sethi, a particularly handsome pterosaur from the Early Cretaceous of what is now Brazil. It had a wingspan of about 4,5 metres, which isn't particularly big on pterosaur standards, but compared to modern birds, it's still huge.

Not much more to add. I'm definitely not acting like an adult tonight. It's midnight, I just ate so many cookies my stomach hurts, and instead of sleeping, I'm painting pterosaurs. Just because I can.

misnamed for a terrestrial predator that behaved like a terror bird.

Thalassodromeus sethi has a doubly unfortunate name. It probably wasn't ocean-going and the headgear that inspired it's species name did not belong to Seth (Egyptian god of desert and chaos) but Amun (quite fittingly, the god of wind). The authors just got confused with their Egyptian mythology.

You're painting pterosaurs? I guess they're not ticklish!

I've spent five days drawing cacti and eating nothing but ice-cream sandwiches.
Adulthood is awesome.

Your adulthood sounds just about as awesome as mine. ^^

I like the sepia-tone mixed media style you're using here.
