Archaeopteryx. 8/183.



BEST ANIMAL EVER.
also, the species name (Archaeopteryx lithographica) comes from the fact that the original fossil was found in Bavaria in limestone, aka. litho stones! It also looked sorta like a lithograph. That shit blew my mind.

brushes and india ink. w3rd.

UPDATE.
and now (in the immortal words of Monty Python) for something completely different!


I ended up doing this additional drawing just cause I think the archaeopteryx is THAT awesome.
