~Together they shape the sky by night, bringing forth at least a fraction of the light that was lost by sunset. The Winged One will light the path, show the way for the Starpainter. Not a single corner of that deep blue canvas that is the night sky will be left unpainted. ~

Whew, what a pain in my sittin-muscles this one was, I feel like I'll never get a hang on drawing linearts comfortably.

Really imaginative stuff here. :D Love what you do so keep it up. :heart:
Btw, any chance I could interest you in doing some work on a Navajo mythology comic? Note me if you're interested in more details.

wow. such great flow and depth to this piece.
The delicacy and simplicity of the bird really draws my eye, and the attention to detail in the hair, fur, and stars is beautiful.
very nicely done!

This is epic and confusing at the same time. The hair gives it a enhanced type of a abstract feel. Super epic fantasy/lucid dream. It's awesome.

Wow, the composition is great! The tail leads you right into the piece and then the antllers point the way back out again but with a short, interesting pause to view the bird real quick. The details are breathtaking, thank you very much!

wow... @_@..... I am dazzled by this. Though the tail is a little long for me. But it is still very much amazing.
