The Ugliest Pterosaur, by Jaime A. Headden:
“Well, not really. Dsungaripterus weii sit in his regal splendour, reveling in the adoration of the pterosaurian masses. The wrinkles and folds of the flesh show it is old, and probably the sire of generations of ‘saurlets.
The non-wing portion of the arm is very long, and I wanted to draw a sitting posture for a wierd pterosaur in order to both popularize the curiousity, and to place the long, slender bones of the leg and wing into a posture, to see if it was possible (and apparently is).”

Baryonyx walkeri by Gonzalo Jara, illustration based on these footprints:

“If you visit the Museo de Salas de los Infantes website you can see that in Costalomo deposit are some of the most impressive icnites of the world. The particularity is that some of these footprints are extruded from the ground due to the very special conditions the dinosaur faced when it left the footprints. I tried to represent this moment in my illustration, and well, I tried to do my best. I hope you like it.” Full comment here
