This is another rendering of Archaeopteryx, one I'd done before I'd done my red Archaeopteryx. Just like my red Archaeopteryx, I made this guy's head and neck quite fluffy. The colouring is loosely based on a blue jay because I really like blue jays. But also corvids in general; corvids are cool!
Before anyone says, "How is this an Archaeopteryx, it just looks like a bird?", look at the fluff on the tarsals. And look at the external nares at the tip of the premaxilla. Also, do look at the claws poking out from under the wing (maybe not so obvious but they are there). On the other hand, I didn't particularly make the claw on the second pedal digit noticeably bigger but it is just ever so slightly bigger.
I drew his picture with a mechanical pencil (B, 0.5) and coloured it using a cheap set of colouring pencils that I got at WH Smith about eight years ago.
