I like the top one for being readable, I like the bottom more because you put more effort into your gradients, plus the orange to red to purple looks really sweet.
That's really good.
Saving this as a Wallpaper... SO much detail it's amazing. I almost thought the feathers were done in color pencil, or do you use a mixture of brush technique with watercolor pencils?
nope, just brushes and watercolours. couple of fine-tipped black pen lines over top, but overall just fine brushes.
