Ice Falcon by Mewberries Ice Falcon by Mewberries
Heh...this is about as close as I get to life-like drawings. They just never look quite right when I draw them. This one I liked though.

There's a bit of a story behind this picture. This was originally a commission from a local Boy Scout troop. They needed a banner that represented their patrol group animal...a blue falcon. So I drew the picture, and not long after they tell me that it's nice, but that they don't need it anymore. Why? Because they decided not to become a patrol group. *sigh* Oh well... I love this picture though, despite all the trouble I got from its commissioners. ^_^

"Ice" of you to draw this for your local Boy Scouts! :-P
Seriously though, it's a good picture. Is this based off a Peregrine?
As cool and blue as this is, my favorite part is the alulae on the wings. (definition: [link])
And just for the record, I would use this as MY banner! :-D

O! I love those to! My desire for Peregrine's came from the book "My Side of the Mountain"
