Trying to catch a sunray by Shekla Trying to catch a sunray by Shekla
Finally it is :phew:
Fortis has changed his appearance a bit. I modified his markings, especially on his front legs. Well, in my opinion he looks better now :)

Drawing wings was a nightmare. I had no idea how to draw them, it was pure improvisation. But I’m quite satisfied with the effect :]
