I loved the features.
Ever thought of exposing their works in the Louvre?

Now in English

Shoot that's what I meant actually xD I always get those two names mixed up--which is bad because they are both very different! :XD:

Being a long time follower of your work (2004) and Mexican I can tell you I LOVE the fact that a canadian artist includes Aztec gods in their production and this piece itself has beautiful details, classy color scheme; fits into the box right in, it doesn't need anymore than what it has.

There one final comment, Quetzalcoatl is more a serpent than a bird, we call him the "feathered serpent" and he is like this [link] he's the most powerful good of aztecs, he took the form of a person and visited the aztecs, they say looked like a bearded man (native mexicans have very few facial hair), like a messiah he said he would come back,

When the spanish came, people thought their conquerer was Quetzalcoatl because he was a bearded man, little did they know he was some foreign funcker that was going to mess up their land,

Oh well, just thought I had to comment on that, happy halloween!

I honestly can't say which I like better, the sketch or the over-painting. Either could be torn from the sketchbook of some mythic explorer.

Reminds me of a griffin more. But great job either way! It seems slightly unbalanced.

I love how the backround has that "old knight history book" page look. I also love how the pale shades of the blue-ish grey you use to colour the dragon compliments the whole picture. Keep up the good work :D

Mildly disturbing, yet still somehow very beautiful. You show here that you have a wonderful talent, which is something that's rare to find in this day and age. I really love your style. Very gorgeous piece here. I look forward to seeing something more like this from you in the near future.

Oh, I love this. The colours, the pencil lines at the ends of the wings, the whole bestiary feel to it.

I used pencil and Painter X on this :) it took me a while to mimic the whole watercolour feel to it.
