Will be adding more bogsneak drawings in here when I have the time, going to do the skeletal drawing atop the XXX White scry

Feel free to be asked to be added to the pinglist, if you want to see updates and new anatomy.


Skydancers

Built for extraordinary speed for short distances, this dragon is surprisingly adaptable to environments, as long as there are plenty of bugs and easy to reach non-fibrous plants.

Things I noticed.
~While built for speed, a Skydancer doesn't have the muscle to sustain speed over a long distance.
~Its wings seem to be useful for other things rather than just flying, as they have many different joints. Do Skydancers perhaps use their wings as an extra set of legs at times? Especially for an extra burst of speed?

Alrighty, folks, I did some simplistic sketches of some Coatl anatomy. I hope you enjoy it, as it was quite interesting to do.


Based on:
Pigeon (For wings)
Reticulated Python (For skull, as I used to have pythons and Coatl heads look like python heads to me)
Deltadromeus (Raptor most commonly found in Morocco, used for most of the other bones, as I collect fossils and have lots and lots of dinosaur bones.)

Now, no doubt this wasn't the adorable fluffy Coatl you likely had in mind. I drew it as I would a python skull. This means the two lower jaws are able to literally detach from the skull, meaning it can swallow larger prey than it seems.

So don't let those cuddly looks fool you. Coatls are deadly.

Sure thing! Spirals are one of the ones I am super excited to do as well.

It's intresting to see how the wings are attached to the body, with the front legs already there it's always a huge guess

@Midorikage

Yeah, that was one thing I was iffy about. I'm thinking muscle attached to the front of the rib cage would be sufficient, depending on how fat the boggy was. If not, it could be connected to the muscle and bone of the scapula.

also for references, bee and capsule show a bit of a derg behind. theyre quite useful to consider the actual shape of the body.

Ooooh, good point! That will be most useful for spirals in particular.
