I saw this a long time ago and from then until now i regarded this as my favorite in a corner of my mind.
I really find it the most touching and beautiful raptors image I've ever seen. Aaaaand now... time to fav it and tell you how great it is. I mean I am really impressed, not only by the coloring, but of the concept. It's mindhaunting for those with such preferences. Back to the drawing itsself, i'm impressed by the way the muscles and skin color and general aspect came out. And look at those faces. Who said you can't draw emotion on a dromaeosaur's face? I presume the drawing itsself is quite large... Am I right? I don't see as much you know... pencil marks as on other colored pencil drawings.
man, this is ALL TIME FAVORITE for all on DeviantArt for me!
Thanks for drawing it!
(i'd set my DA mood to "love", but that could make suspicions those who know me nevermind...)
