A scene with a hero meeting a mystical creature...
I love the leaves in the foreground adds depth, and how they all point inward really gives the piece good movement.
I looked at a peacock for reference, but I ended up drawing the spirit more dodo-like.
I had a version before where the water was very blue, I felt it was too blaring tho, so I changed it to the stone colors. I could maybe make the water slightly bluish though.
I like the concept of the spirit. What bird did you base it off of?
This is a cool little scene. I do wish the water had more blue in it though, it's go with the other more saturated look of the image..
