I just finished my drawing of the day (aka: my drawing by the night)
and noticed that although I was looking for depict an very endangered species of parrot: Ara glaucolaris,
I was drawing a different bird: Ara ararauna, also a beauty, but not so fragile…
In terms of paleoart, this mess could be a minor mistake, and even it could pass unnoticed for the vast majority.
And this makes me think, how free is this branch of the art and the paleontology,
and how fast we could make assumptions based solely on aesthetic statements about creatures gone long ago…
