Rayeir Reference Sheet by Skysealer Rayeir Reference Sheet by Skysealer
Reference sheet commission for *Foxchibi of Rayeir! I had immense fun while working on this, and I hope it shows. :D
Text was written by *Foxchibi with a few edits by moi, and the lovely human!Rayeir silhouette and the array were also done by *Foxchibi with a few slight tweaks (color) by me. :>

Originally finished 20120414 but waited to post it today, Monday, for the start of my work week. And before anyone asks, yes, there are many influences of Reign of Fire wyverns in this design. c:

I posted a wip of this ref in its earliest stages to my tumblr a while ago too! [link]

A special note:If you have been commissioned by *Foxchibi in the past of her personal world and characters, please do not post those works unless it was agreed upon in the original commission contract that the commissioned piece was available for public viewing. Thank you for understanding!

How could a critter this big even get around?  I'm no biologist or anything, but what little I do know tells me that a size to body ratio like this should render this guy almost immobile.  He'd be as slow as a sauropod,  unless he uses advanced air sacks all over his body to help him move.

This is where many people fail to take into consideration a few important factors:
1. The planet the character exists on may have a different gravitational pull.

2. The overall physics ruling the realm may present different characteristics (up may be down) as theorized in the multiverse theory in physics. This is the rule where 'magic' is often entertained with.

3. It's fantasy. People forget this all the time.

Well, that is true too. 

It's embarrassing that sometimes I don't think on things enough, or sometimes too much.  And frankly I forget to even consider physics.  I wonder if I'd really understand it, even.  Science and I are the worst enemies. I'm just so damn literal minded sometimes.  I limit myself too much with rules that are familiar because I don't understand certain things.
