Really beautiful. ^_^ I love this. Especially the blue eyes and tongue, and the feathers.

I've really missed seeing new pieces from you...glad to see you're still creating. :D

I had a dry spell earlier this year when I produced almost nothing for months (I have very little to show for the whole of 2006, sadly)...and then I finally kicked myself back into action; I love doing art far too much, and the excuse of 'not having enough time' wasn't good enough. Art is vital, I feel so much better when I'm being creative. I really missed it, and to know that others missed my art too is very touching, so thank you. :)

You're welcome. :) And...I know that dry spell well. I feel so much happier when I'm being creative at least a little everyday too. It's become like a need or something. O.o

Glad you're back!

I'm so glad you like it! He was great fun to draw, I like a good challenge. Feathers were a bitch, I had no clue what I was doing with them, but they turned out well enough so no complaints there.

But you know what - I drew this on a bloody laptop, and have just come home only to find it looks *completely different* (seriously, I did not put all that red in there), I'm going to touch it up at the next opportunity - hopefully tomorrow - because really that's not what I intended it to look like!

(To be honest, it'll only be minor alterations, but I'm cursed with perfectionism and will not be able to sit still now until I can fix it. argh.)

xD Im like that too, but I think the red looks nice :0 <333 I'd like to see it though whatever way you would think looks even better. it shall blow me away 8D
