Hi Arthur

Great to welcome yet another Artist onto to BF! You work is of the draftmanship that I'd die for! (don't give them all away, looks like they have great commercial potential too ). I particularly like the Bittern, but all of them have great appeal.

Hi Arthur, nice to have another artist on BF, we seem to have been increasing quite a lot recently.

Nice work, it all has a very graphic feel which is unusual and individual.

I think the short eared owl is fantastic-but all owls are aren't they

Looking at these and your pic on the other thread it's good to see that you have a nice consistant style.I'd definately encourage you keep this thread running with future posts and pics.

Matt
