Beautiful. The energy in this is incredible, and no I'm not just talking about the red flame/electricity. The rock of the cliff, the tree branches,and the background with the sky and the hill are all superb. My favorite part (and anyone's I'm guessing) is the sporadic and intense flame/electricity. It's beautiful, fierce, and powerful. If the main creature is transforming from a wolf to a raven or to something other, this is the BEST animal transformation picture I have ever seen! My only qualm with this picture is the wolf: the wolf looks a little flat and non-dimensional as well as incongruous to the scene (wouldn't it be scare or something instead of just looking on?). I also wish the wolf was farther in the background or something because its presence actually detracts from the more amazing wolf-raven beast.
Nonetheless, the picture is beautifully crafted. Absolutely amazing man.
Gorgeous work! I love the way the characters came out and the effect you achieved with the photographs. The red energy of the wings also came out great!
This kind of reminds me of a local legend. I live in New Jersey and there is this creature that supposedly lives in the woods of the Pine Barrens and is called the "Jersey Devil." It is supposed to look a little like that. lol.
Very nice, but the effects on the wings look a little out of place. There's just something about the quality of them that makes them stick out like a sore thumb instead of fitting in with the rest of the piece. It's not so much the glowing sparks as the fire-like strands.
