Beak-snout comes to life by ScottHartman Beak-snout comes to life by ScottHartman
The life reconstruction of Rhamphorhynchus posed just like the skeletal. I'll be doing a series of such illustrations for overlays for an educational app, so those of you who have been asking to see more life reconstructions get posted should get their wish in the coming months.

I used blue-footed boobies and seagulls as inspiration for coloration, and then made the wing pattern more appropriate for a creature that lacks feathers (as all non-dinosaurs in the universe probably do).

I love the wings! The stripes do look very seagull like! And the beak definitely captures the essence of a prehistoric creature.

Beautiful!

Interesting to see the external nares outside of the AOF instead of the nostril. I'm not quite into cranial sinuses stuff, so is this connected to both fenestrae being covered by the same vaguely non-beak looking tissue?
