I love this. I love how the picture looks so archaic and traditional. I have a 50's prehistoric life book, and I could say that this is the same drawing style and everything. I highly appreciate, though, the fact that it is scientifically up-to-date. I like the nostalgic feel, but I don't want to be left behind the times. Brilliant job.

Screw errors. This is absolutely beautiful. An artist can be absolutely anatomically correct in all his drawings and never have something as lifelike as this creature.

Absolutely amazing detail; and especially without a reference for shading. Lovely work on this Microraptor!

aside form the tail being a bit too short. Excellent work! You've inspired me to make my own Microraptor, perching and preening. I'll make it sometime when I'm done with my current work.

Very nice. I can't spot anything wrong with it. I can tell what it is, so I'm not going to complain.

I really like the details in the feathering and the "wings"

The detail of this is beyond belief. The fact you didn't even use a reference for this either makes it all the more unbelievable.

jakie wiec ptaki kochasz najbardziej? ja orly przednie, bieliki olbrzymie (orly stellersa), kondory andyjskie, krolewskie (maja najwspanialsze skrzydla na swiecie), jastrzebie radzawosterne i harrisa, sokoly norweskie, rajskie ptaki, zurawie, nasze wschodnie wrony, kruki, kukawki, pawie... duzo tego ;)

Przyznam, że bardziej od żyjących interesują mnie wymarłe, np. taki Argentavis magnificens, albo rodzina Phorusrhacidae (mam nadzieję że nie zrobiłam błędu w nazwie^^; ). Z żyjących to głównie kruki, wrony, większość papug, i głównie ze względów wizualnych - iwi, akohekohe, apapane, rajskie ptaki - krasnopióry, latawiec królewski, ozdobnik wspaniały; kolibry i bociany:)

No drapieżne są w porządku, ale moimi zdecydowanymi faworytami są ptaszki typu Diatryma czy Andalgalornis, prawdziwe maszyny do zabijania:)
Tak w ogóle to Archeopteryks nie był ptakiem^^;
