Oh my gosh! It's been a long time since I've seen this boy, I'm so happy you were thinking about him. This is a really fun composition - That huge crest and muscular neck bringing our sight down to his stern but playful face. I like the sort of creamy fathers and underbelly with the cooler white plate scales, and for some reason I especially like these lines in the background, haha. I feel like he is diving through the sky and he sees us watching him, and maybe we're flying about too.
Thank you kindly for the lovely gift. I really adore it c:
