Hm...I am somehow reminded of Little Nemo when I saw this. I think that there was a giant bird in it or something. Sigh, I miss that movie. Anywho, I love the soft pastel feel of the colours. This looks like it could be in a storybook or official concept art for a film. 8)

you know this is actually my favorite piece of artwork - and i mean that in gerneral. It's so unique! The bird, I'm not so sure if I would trust, lol.
Really though, this is amazing! I can just feel a slight breeze in the air.

I hope it's a nice bird. ^^;
Though, if I were the kid, I'd wonder who went through the trouble of putting an elaborate saddle on it.
