Hexapteryx Archeophis by KatePfeilschiefter Hexapteryx Archeophis by KatePfeilschiefter
Another one of these guys,

Next is Hexapteryx Archeophis. (Names aren't very consistent at this time, pay no heed) This guy is a little further along the line in terms of flight development. His middle limb set is being relegated to primary wing duty, and his forearms are taking on climbing. The tail is looking a little prehensile as well, and his body is overall more mammalian in structure. His larger teeth suggest he's tackling fleshier prey.

Just wondering, what's the general opinion on the yellowish colour from the paper, looks good or is greyscale preferred?

I like the sepia-look, makes it look more fancy like an old science book :)

hard to find 'traditional' art these days that isn't done digitally.

I like your take on the evolution of dragons. :) You make it seem quite plausible that a dragon could evolve- all we need to do is relocate one of these little guys to an alien planet, and we can have a dragon-like creature in a SF setting. Greyscale is nice, but the yellowish color does help a bit with the three-dimensional effect. If you have a sketchpad with yellowish paper, you can try using a white colored pencil for highlights. Some other artists do that, and it looks pretty nice.

I love this guy.. especially the thickness and poise of the middle outer joints for stability. I'm a fanatic for good anatomy, and this little creature is very well designed. Great job.
