On the other hand, another artist (name unknown) has different problems with accuracy. Sadly he’s following pterosaur tradition down a very rocky road. The saggy results speak for themselves, but Dave Hone, one of the spokesmen for keeping such pterosaur traditions, discusses the various highlights and faults of the artwork.

A better wing morphology, reflecting the evidence from all known pterosaurs, can be seen here and here if anyone starts to feel the onset of confusion.
