...Okay, lets took a look on Shrike and poor Vanessa again. For a half hour or so Shrike carried her screaming, wriggling victim through the air, but finally our hungry Wyvern found an abandoned backyard to go down and enjoying her meal...
Shrikes teeth are not made for chewing, but for ripping flesh and sinews and cracking large bones with only one bite. So it was very fast over for Vanessa, as Shrike bites her Head off and crushed Vanessas skull between her jaws... Yes, she loves tasty brain!
As we can see, one leg and one arm are already devoured too and Shrike just bite off Vanessas second leg...
I think, this is gory enough and don't have to show how she cracked Vanessas chest and abdomen as next to rip out the tasty innards...
You simply have to cope with such nasty scenes if you have a Wyvern as a pet
Shrike says "Thanks for 100.000 views!"
with this little insight in her feeding-habits
This work made me a lot of trouble. First: How would a Wyvern eat? How would a Wyvern stand or sit during eating? I think, it would be a mixture of the feeding-habits of a bird of prey and a Bat walking/sitting on the ground. So i let Shrike not only standing on her legs but propped up on her wings too, balanced out with the help of her long tail.
In this position she would have enough power to hold her prey and ripping big chunks of flesh off by tossing her head up. And, in the case of danger, she would be able to fly away very fast.
Second: In wich sequence would a Wyvern kill and tear apart its prey? I think, the limbs would be the first parts be bitten off after it had killed its catch by biting the head off. The jaws and teeth are surely strong enough to crack even a buffalos neck with a few bites. A human neck is even only a short "crunch!"...
I guess, larger prey from about horse size up Shrike would paralyse with her tailsting, but she take no care about the weak screaming and wriggling of a catched human.
With this thoughts in my mind i tried to make the work anatomically correct and more believable.
Most goooory work i ever done. A little bit more to do than only some little traces of blood; Shrikes feeding-habits are unfortunately not so nice and clean as Sucurijus lunchtimes.
Posing Shrike was a pain too: The DAZ-Wyvern 2 comes with some preset-poses to start with, but i wasn't able to use them, because loading them on my "Improved Wyvern 2" destroying a lot of my modificated morphs for unknown reasons. So i had to set the pose from scratch with no reference.
Okay, here some credits to the great artists who modeled the freebies i used in this work. I know, i forget this part often enough... Shame on me:
