I refuse to use stars Sorry.
Okay first of all WOW. This is just simply beautiful! I love the tequnique you used to color the feathers and mask down. The background being faded really intinsifies the shade of red in the wings. Talons are shaded wonderfully and the angle of wings is very well executed.
I personally love the launch position he's in, give's him a powerful look.
The only thing I can see that would need help is he seems to be missing a visible talon and his body seems just a LITTLE short.
You did an amazing job on this, brilliant! ^^ Keep up the incredible work!
Thank you very much! Your word means a lot This being one among my first digital paintings of wildlife, I was actually rather doubtful as to how it'd turn out, but I am happy for the way it ultimately came out, and I am also happy you like it. Thank you!
