This was done completely in paint shop. One of my D&D buddies suggested giving the creature stats and then throwing it at them. Not a bad idea, really, but I have to get around to it first. When I do, I'll make a note of it here and you can find me and ask for the stats.

I like the texture to the wings that you have, but the shadows are a little deep and makes them look like separate layers instead of a whole wing.

:-) Kimberly Raptor Price Riley replies: "  Hmm, I see what you mean. The texture for the wings is actually a leaf pattern from Paint Shop. I was mostly just playing around with this and still learning my graphics pad. (I think I really learned how to use it doing Ren Fest Wizard, ohy.) I might go back and redo it, depends on time. Time which is spent on other projects. Hehe."

Original and nice colors. But next time have some antialias on, those edges are so pixelated! Maybe a little blur...

:-) Kimberly Raptor Price Riley replies: "I tried, but changing it from a psp file over to jpg really ate this things lunch. The original is so much better. I might just try cleaning this one up, but it'll probably still be evil to me. Thanks for the suggestion and keep up with your own artwork, it's great."

I also thought the wings were separated from eachother.
Oops sorry 0'.'0
