Is it possible for some of you extremely talent artists to help us again?
We have been improving the way the Topography Article can be used for identification descriptions and we think that linking a word, e.g. supercilium to a painting/drawing/diagram gives a very good optical explanation, particulary for those with English as a second language. The difficulty arises in that each drawing needs a separate page so that when it is linked to, the image is displayed.
To that end would like to create a composite image of tails showing the various types and one of beaks which shows the following features:

Mandible, upper and lower
Culmen
Nostril, differents form including tubular etc
Nail
Decurved
Recurved
Cere
Unguis, maxillary and mandibular
Latericorn
Ramicorn
Gonys + spot
Nasal tuft and bristles
Pouch
Knob
Casque
Tomium

There might be a few more that we have forgotten.

The tail composite would ideally show a front, rear and side view and include upper and undertail coverts, forked, graduated, square, rounded, cocked, streamers, central and outer retrices, barring and bands etc. And of course anything you can think of.

Thank you very much

An example showing a link to an image. In this case, the eye ring link goes directly to Tim Wootton's drawing which shows not just the eye ring but all the other features that can be linked in this way.

Thanks so much for your input here mayoayo.

Unfortunately we cannot use pictures such as these. In order to maintain the integrity of Opus, all images and artwrok used must be the work of a member (except in a very few exceptional circumstances)
