David Peters' 2013 Vision by nemo-ramjet David Peters' 2013 Vision by nemo-ramjet
An attempt to "realistically" paint one of David Peters' unorthodox pterosaurs.
David Peters is an independent researcher who claims he can see previously-unnoticed hatchlings, fossil details, etc. on pterosaur fossils by manipulating photos of fossils in Photoshop. He also believes that pterosaurs are descendants of lizards.

I remember the last petersoid pterosaur, you created with John! Dave was so angry about this! Funny! He seems to hate you, Conway and Naish, but I have to say, that it's his fault! His pterosaurs are always epic art fails! Remember his vampire "Jeholopterus! Like a vampire bat-anglerfish-horse-rattlesnake-whatever!

Reptileevolution.com is so ridiculous and stupid, I ca't stop laughing about it! :D

Am I the only one who thinks this looks like Snivy (a Pokemon, if you don't know)?

He is a firm believer in pycnofibres though, in addition to even stranger feathery frilly things.

He also has a completely bastardized understanding of phylogenetics, leading him to think the scientific consensus holds that pterosaurs are somehow most closely related to/descended from phytosaurs. It can't be that he's too stupid understand the subject after decades of people correcting him. I'm thinking he's deliberately and dishonestly re-writing the rules to make his a priori conclusions work and make the rest of the palaeontological community look like fools.

I must say that DP's methods are research are indeed questionable at best, though I'll also admit that some of the prospects raised by his ideas are quite fascinating.

 

In any case, this is a lovely rendition of a pterodactyl... parent and offspring?  Anyway, they're just adorable!  (smile)
