Mr Tailfan by Rasa88 Mr Tailfan by Rasa88
Just putsing about before bed, thinking about having a tail fan that acts as a rudder during flight instead of the sprawled leg look. The tail would be adjusted at varying degrees and speeds to turn with the rest of the body. I'll probably wake up tomorrow, log on and scream my lungs out when I see what I've done to this guy!
The small fan at the end of the tail would serve to keep it flat and prevent the tail tip from flailing. Not the average western dragon look but hey, I like dinosaur dragons!

Thanks for looking!

Dinosaur dragons are ftw by the way ;p
You've got a very unique rudder design here, makes me think of the sailboats in our harbor.
Makes me wonder...do they need to trim their Fringe to keep it from over growth?
<3 as always c:

fantastic! I do think this is a better solution, because the patagia of pterosaurs are behind the main wings, not underneath them, and I was having a hard time imagining how exactly would the dragon flap its wings with the hindlegs being in the way. ;)

Haha the same here, I was trying to figure out how to get past that problem and in the end opted to just go with the sail, easier! Thank you very much!
