Almonihah must be really happy, its so wonderfull.
Iolar is a interresting charcter with a great concept behind it.
I really like the idea, that he changes with evolution. As embodiment of the essence of all birds he is shaped by the birds and he shapes them. a really lovely concept.
you did a great illustration of this.

This is like the visual equivalent of an orchestral piece of music that grows and builds, filling your being with the beauty of the coming dawn, beautiful!
Something like The Moody Blues - Dawn is a Feeling perhaps: www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkb9Zr…

Ohh, what a beautiful character! I love the golden colour and feathers, and the markings are very beautiful.
Your landscape looks, as always, pretty cool  - I especially like the water and the early trees, and the sunrise's
colours are superb.
