I have no clue what I am doing here.


I have no idea where anything is. I have no idea what anything does. This is not merely a madhouse designed by a madman, but a madhouse designed by many madmen, each with an intense hatred for the previous madman's unique flavour of madness.

External rib-wings don't allow for proper powered flight, but this Tharumi is at least able to descend to lower cavern levels in relative safety.

Very nice!

I can just imagine that its primary method of killing prey is by dropping on it.

When I read the description I had immediate mental image that some mean dwarves simply glued a pair of cardboard wings to its back for the lulz, because there's no way a sauropod could fly with "thin wings of stretched skin".

Why are you wasting those great art skills on making fun of others' art rather than wasting it on making your own?
...I think that came out wrong...

Now I feel like I've been slightly missinterpreted, it would seem as if some of you misstook my genuine fear for some sort of mockery. :'(
I'd agree with DG and call it more of a tribute then anything else. :D

Alright, here is my really crappy rendition of Tharumi. I did not have a scanner atm due to being out of the house today, so I borrowed a camera.

Note that the horn-like things on his head are useless wings. And the webbing is coming out of one of his knee-caps (although his other knee-cap should be able to do the same). The squigly lines under his mouth are supposed to look like drool. (I feel that my crappy sketch actually requires this amount of explanation due to being a bad photo and not having color).

I actually got most of that without the explanation.  The sketch was fine, the lack of scanner did have negative impact, though.
