Yi Qi is one of the recent new big discoveries from the dinosaur era! It's the size of a piegon and looks like a fuzzy little dragon, how stinking cute isn't that???
I was thinking it was creepy until I read how small it is. So adorable QAQ
Really nice one
Little feathered Dinosaur Dragon!
aww it looks perfect
That's really nice! Did you use any particular references or were you just experimenting? Also, I really like the long tail, adds a lot of character to the creature
well references are quite tricky when it comes to extinct animals that we've only seen as fossils. I mainly looked at how other artists interpreted the design, especially this one by hyrotrioskjan was my biggest inspiration. There's still many different speculations about how the wing membrane were attached to the body. The awesome thing with Yi Qi is that it shows us how evolution created many different ways to soar through the air!
