Holy crap that was good timing, I just happened to be checking dA after being inactive for a while and suddenly GERHJBAGRLAHGRA IT'S A LIGHBOW!
Ohmygosh he looks even more amazing than I expected! You made my kind of ridiculous character design actually look really cool. O__o Totally love the style you drew him in, everything looks so brilliant. I think my favourite part has to be his face, it really looks more how he's meant to than my own pictures do, a ha ha. The expression is great and the hair looks so amazing and fluffy. *Pats it.*
Ahh, and I love all the details you put into this, like the zippers on the jacket and the way you drew the texture of the fur, feathers and talons. The colouring looks fantastic too, the choice of shading colours really do a great job of balancing the palette.
Thank you so much for this, I feel like I could talk forever about everything I like about it. O_o I loved the pic you did of his other form when I commissioned you in 2011 but this one looks even better! It was totally worth the wait.
