Here’s some ruff concept work for a new book project I’ve started. I guarantee, the story is totally different from my other book, and has nothing to do with dinosaurs or any other kind of extinct primordial beast. It just happens to have a small and very minor role featuring a prehistoric Pterodactyl. That I promise.

I thank you for the comments.

Gabriel, those little designs are actually really large pieces of candy stuck to his wings. But any one could have made that mistake :)

Greg, I can’t help it, I’ve been watching too many Flintstones episodes on Boomerang.

Q/Minkyu and Lissa. You guys are really talented chaps, so I link you now!

Howdy Potater’ Gal,

Heck, he sure is made out of crackers and cheese! And his wings are made from pure candy—kind of crazy, don’t you think?
