Sometimes when you're developing a fantasy painting, it's fun to act out a scene, even if the photo reference that you get out of it isn't that useful directly.
The idea is to get into the spirit of the action, feel the wind in your face and hear the screech of the pterosaur.
I think that's more important than getting a photographically real piece of reference to copy. If you can identify with the weight and balance of things, and especially the emotion, you've got 90% of the problem solved.
The painting of "Air Jousting" is from Dinotopia: Journey to Chandara.
