Such a cutie she is :meow:
Go ahead and give her a hug, she doesn't bite!

This is a wallpaper version of
I flipped it horizontally in Photoshop so that her eyes weren't buried beneath icons on the left-hand side of my desktop, and added in a second pteryx flying in the background :)

I wasn't able to match up the camera angle exactly after increasing the resolution, oh well :shrug: ^^;

Indeed ^^

I wonder if they were this colorful in real life? I was watching a class on zbrush sculpting and the two guys leading the session were talking about the way they colored some of their dinosaurs for this animation (Dinosaur Revolution or something?) and they mentioned that a lot of people tend to go with muted earthly colors most of the time with dinosaurs, so they had some of their pterosaurs and other flying, gliding, or feathered prehistorics colored a bit more vividly like some modern avians. It was pretty cool to see ^^

Hey, I always wanted to know the general patterning of plumage of avian species, but the shiny blue plume on Archaeopteryx makes it look real nice!

Hey, I need to be an Aves expert to understand the respective patterning of bird plumes, but those blue feathers looked really cool!
