Okay. This took forever. I'm not drawing anything with feathers again for a long, long, long time. I'm pretty sure it took longer than the dragon, around 35 hours or so, counting the extra work I did researching feathers and whatnot. I'm pretty happy with the background in this one, it's not half-assed like the dragon background. I think my favorite spot in the entire drawing is the pile of rocks in the bottom left corner... Hrmph. Overall, this is my best drawing to date... The question I ask myself is this: Do I really want to try to top it?
