Wow! This is gorgeous, everything about it. The wing is so magnificent and the feathers curling back gives the sense of a powerful wing beat. I like the jewel on it too.

The overall pose is stunning, it really draws attention to the piece from the thumb alone. It is a dynamic pose, so it looks very natural, like a moment of time caught forever in this painting. The curve of the neck and how the legs are so stretched makes the leap look incredibly strong, like he's jumping over a large chasm to safety, or perhaps attacking something with that marvellously long horn.
What do you think?

The perspective of the wings are fabulous. The curling of the feathers at the tips give so much movement, I almost want to brace myself for the powerful blast of hot air the wing is about to displace. Very well done.
The coloring and lighting is also awesome! I love how the back of the horse or the back of the wings just fade into the blackness behind it an awesome eerie feeling, and yet, it is so graceful. Great job!
I also like the effect of the horn piercing through the fire, almost like it is overpowering it. Very cool.

I agree, these wings are the best...I think his one is my favorite of all :)
I also admire your originality. Most of the artists(not really can call them artists) use reference photos, and they just copy the horses or the subject perfectly, with nothing original in it. I think that a real artist never copies a photograph, but he creates something new and interesting, using maybe a small reference for the anatomy, like you do. :)

^^' thank you very much, yes I also use some photos as reference, even if using real models is better ^^' but horses are hard to "catch" XD and I rarely have the occasion to see them in real :(

Yes, I know...I don't have a horse and I see one in my face maybe 3 times on a year...It's so sad :( When I travel and see one walking I turn my face from the car and chase him with the eyes, but when I have the oportunity to touch or ride one is a miracle! :XD:
