phil, more and more i'm impressed by the increasing quality within your work. it feels like you're pushing yourself a bit more with each new piece as of late, which is inspiring and admirable! thank you!

ya this one is totally up my ally, my favorite so far. except you missed one vital element...where is the mighty eagle/hawk/falcon swooping in for the kill??!! i would enjoy a series one this subject matter with much clapping.

wow, thanks guys. after doing a stint of "serious" ones, i decided to do something more playful and illustrate sylas' 5 favorite animals and what came out is what you have before you...
thanks for the feedback, i'd love to explore this style more too.
