See, now this is great work. Love the way you’ve handled the b/g, but even more impressive, you've seen what the flight feathers are doing and taken the time to work out WHY theyre doing it. Lovely, lovely piece!

Beautiful! When I first saw it it brought back the memory of when I saw a hawk (or falcon) up close at work this past winter and my breath was taken away by its beauty. That must mean you did something right, haha. But I am serious, it is beautiful! :iconblacksparklesplz: :heart: :iconblacksparklesplz: :heart: :iconblacksparklesplz:
