Thanks, Mossoak!
This was a fun part of the painting for me. 
Capturing the translucency of the feathers was a particular challenge. 
Found some inspiring photography out there in the internet wilds that really helped.

This is just lovely!  I love the foreshortening of the wing!  And of course, orcs.  Always orcs. <3

Thanks, JohanIV !
I had plenty of choice ones at times while working on this one. ;)
Most were monosyllabic and colorful I can assure you!

It is a very cool theme and I chose this one from a list of assignments for Aethercon 2013 as my favorite to tackle.
Birds are a tough subject for me and I wanted that challenge.
Glutton for punishment that I am.

Lol. We all enjoy a little punishment once in a while! :P As long as you're proud of your work in the end that's all that matters.

I gotta find some dice rollers with the same work scheduale as my wife and I. We really miss the fun and challenges.

I know what you mean. 
I used to play a lot back in high school. Haven't really played through a campaign in YEARS.
Since I began working in the game industry, I just haven't had time. :P
Funny how that works.

I enjoy the working properties of acrylics. They were my go-to when I stopped painting digitally a few years back.
Very versatile medium. :)
