Pteranodon rodeo by BrianKesinger Pteranodon rodeo by BrianKesinger
i love drawing dinosaurs and experimenting with different color combinations for their skin. needless to say i was excited by this commission for a steampunk girl riding a Pteranodon! one of my favorite books is dinotopia, so it was fun to be able to put my spin on the subject of human and dinosaur co-habitation :)

It's amazing the mix of two different worlds such as dinossaurs and steampunk. A really interesting idea.

Ride that heifer, girl! The steampunk vibe gives it a nice touch, and the colors as well. This would make a cool theme for a movie, if done right. Great job!

The pteranodon isn't a dinosaur, it's a pterosaur. Both dinosaurs and pterosaurs are a part of a group called archosaur.

Still a great picture though!

The colors are wonderful, but I'm not familiar with Dinotopia and the Pterandodon's anatomy is painfully incorrect... You've got the eyes where the nostrils should be, and the back edge of the wing should attach to the ankle. [link] should help.

The poor creature can't screech anylonger now...
Ofcourse, for the rodeo, that fixes two birds with one stone ^^" - no annoying sounds, and a tight grip!
Looks great!

The pterodactyl is amazing, I wish I could see more of the rider, she's all fabric and hair, still probably not wise to stand straight in mid flight, ^^. Love as always
