Mentalmente siempre visualizaba al Roc mas como un condor, no se por que.
Aca parece un aguila, o un halcon. Igual queda muy bien asi tambien, si hay que ser honestos.

Thanks to some information I obtained from a rather irritating person who probably had a bad day... I found where some art I was using for an OC reference. I apologize for using this. It's one reason I have a large dislike for Google... Either way, I'd like to ask if it's okay if I continue to use your art. If you disprove, I will remove it immediately.

Wow.......this is awesome. I've been looking at a lot of your work and I was wondering how do you do your backgrounds? They look really good and it is something that I am learning how to do but with some trouble.

Keep at this, i'm a fan!
