Looks like Mt. Raineer... Did you use that as reference? Love the cropping!

No references were used in the making of this image, but that's pretty cool that it resembles a real location! :D

OMG I AM REPORTING YOU TO THE ALMIGHTY DA-AUTHORITIEZ, YOU WILL GO TO DA-JAIL FOR YOUR DA-CRIMES.

No, really, I have no doubt that this was a coincidence. The differences in composition and style alone are enough to prove that you didn't copy my OH SO ORIGINALE~ art.

Just don't let it happen again, or I'll have to get my boys on to you.
Kapeesh?

This is stunning! I love the colours and how you 'mounted' it :heart:
I was wondering, do you put a texture or something over your images? (:

No texture other than just a tiny bit of noise. C:

Ah, I think the silence fits this one ^^ Tis silence that speaks in this picture, soaring through the beauty of nature, with nothing but the wind to your wings, the earth below, the sky above and the subtle noises of the natural world around you. Stunning and gorgeous, I am an eternal fan of your work. Though I might lurk, just had to leave a comment on this one ^^

The elliptical frame element has an interesting effect on the whole composition - I really like it; it emphasizes the spread of Sidian's wings.

Great work I love it... I was supposed to get a piece of art done by another artist of pretty much the exact same thing with myself from a vivid recurring dream. However plans fell through and I haven't heard from her since... =/ By the by, it is a wonderful piece and I am sure she shall love it dearly. I know for me it just brings back wonderful dream memories.

Oh skysealer, you are as wonderfully insane as ever *chuckles*

I'm amused by the wingtip just ever so slightly poking out of the frame, she really does look as if she's just about to fly out =D
