I guess this will stay for a long time in our groups feature galley because there is no way on earth someone will top this here on dA. Its a feast for your eye. Wonder how would look like with our Old world kestrel 😋

Pls submit the other bird of prey art Ive suggested and linked to you at your profile. Im afraid you'll not be active here after a while and forgot about this.

Btw, If you dont have anything against, not only the sheer artistry of this inspired me but also the title of it. Since our group is at the begining and it doesn't have a motto, this title came so obvious to me. Exactly, I plan to use it as a motto as a metaphor of both birds of prey nature and the virtue of accomplished artists.

As hard as you try, it is impossible to find fault with this artwork. From the choice of colours to the execution, everything is just right. It reminds me of the old agfa film, well done.
