Sky and clouds are the most impressive element here. But then again, the dominant has to have faith in his jumping abilities to perform acrobatics like these,......"Leap of Faith" is also a good title....:)....and um.....its coloration is based on some kinda bird, albeit I can't put my finger on what.....:?

Yeah, I figured with those long legs, they could be pretty good jumpers. And no, it wasn't inspired by a bird, but by a mammal.. ;)

Good grief, that mammal....umm....a cetacean of some kind definitely, to have contrasting black on white coloring :)

No no, they aren't actually black and white. The sunset lighting gave them a blueish dark hue, but they are actually brown and white.

Another tip, it's an ungulate! (well, cetaceans are technically ungulates, but still). And I think the throat is specially useful to identify it :D

I'm putting dinofuzz in a lot of things lately.
It just looks so cool, and advanced and.. and.. mammalian! :XD:

Funnily enough, I heard somewhere about this lost fossil of an ornithopod that had possible fuzz.

Great! I assume the sky was a photograph, or not? Your art is that good that I sometimes don't know what is photographed and drawn. :)

Very good job. It reminds me of a set of sunset paintings I did for my "dinosaurs" series. :)

Very suggestive, I like this one a lot. The sunset, the light moon in the sky, the cangaroo-like jump, the tail bands, the distant mountains...It's a very nice picture, bravo!

Thank you! Can you guess what animal I used as inspiration for their pattern? The throat region is kind of a giveaway ;)

Looks kinda like a primitive form of highway robbery. Is it just me that thinks that? Nice work
