Lindwyrmr by Ashere Lindwyrmr by Ashere
"The deep forested hills and steps of central and eastern europe play host to many legends. Some speak of fairies-others, of devils. And from the lore of many peoples come tales of a ferocious and savage monster, a lethal predator that haunts the deepest, blackest forests and whose screams freeze the marrow of the bravest man. They call it the lyndwyrmr, a serpent that ran on two legs, attacking with lightning speed.
But the legend pales before reality. The 30 feet of harsh scale and talon still haunt the remote mountains, and the lindwyrmr, no dragon at all, still hunts its prey on the windblown steppes.
Lindwyrmr are a remnant family, that dates back to the mesozoic period. They are related to carnosaurs, with extravagant horns and horrific speed. they routinely bring down big prey, from camels and horses on the steppes to elk and deer in the forests. And they also take humans."

Length: 30-35 feet
Height 8 feet at the hip
Weight:half a ton

---Exerpted from Trismagistus, Late 19th century

the lindwyrmr is awesome. i created a very similar beast called a minosaur; a descendent of carnotaurus which is covered in armor and armed with huge brow horns for impaling prey.

Thanks. I figured he's emphasising horns and wattle, and keeping his arms (his tiny, tiny arms...) out of the way.

"---Exerpted from Trismagistus, Late 19th century" which should explain the spelling typos?
Don't call me a grammar nazi, but the accompanying blurb would have rendered greater service to the picture if some mistakes were avoided--pails should be pales and tails should be tales.
Otherwise a fine rendering as always.

You caught me. This is actually a recycled text from a few years back that I tried to refurbish a bit. I apparently didn't get everything.
Thanks for letting me know!
