Muscles-dragon-layout by Onikaizer Muscles-dragon-layout by Onikaizer
I did some research on Muscle wing anatomy for my Science Illustration class at UCSC back in 2007. I looked into some work done by John Sibbick (a master on dinos and pterosaurs), and compared the pterosaur wing and flexibility in flight to the wing of Bats. I used something that looked more like a bat than a pterosaur. Inspired by the works of Todd Lockwood and Terryl Whitlatch, look them up if you haven't already.

if it has bat/pterasaur wings(wings made of the hand and fingers) shouldnt it have the muscle anatomy of one, the wing type isnt realy compatible with bird anatomy

Hmmm not really, it's a dragon, not a bat or pterosaur, It resembles the anatomy, but doesn't copy it, like bat's don't have the same wing anatomy than birds do for example.

that's a relief! i based it on bats, which is really hard to get reference from. Thanks!
