This is beautiful.  The emotions are very nice to feel.  This is so thought-provoking, and is a strong favorite of mine.  Very, very well done!

I love this drawing, the atmosphere and the composition are so wonderful! It's peaceful, the dinosaur have a unique expression, but not losing the realism. It's a true paleoART!

That is awesome, even though it's a feathered Deinonychus.
I don't know how to tell you exactly how awesome that is. It rocks!

Thanks. Though, what do you mean "even though" it's a feathered Deinonychus?

I tend to dislike feathered raptor pictures. I prefer scaley ones.

I know that they're saying that dromaeosaurids had feathers now, but I guess I'm a bit old school. I keep thinking: "They tarred and feathered my poor dinosaur!"

There is something strangely calming about the colors in this image... especially on the raptor itself... so beautiful.

I can feel the misty atmosphere... It looks like a quiet, pleasant morning. =)

This one's a little different because her body feathers look a lot finer than on other deinonychs you draw.

Wow, this is stunning! The detail is amazing, and I love the atmosphere. I'm especially impressed with the trees in the background: that must have taken even longer than the detail on the feathers...? D:

Maybe it's just me, but I think this picture has a bit of a "video game" feel, like a realistic Cretaceous simulator. Or maybe I'm just weird! =P

Angiosperms have been around for 140 million years, and deciduous trees began becoming common in the Cretaceous, so... nope!

Yep, but aren't they Pines? :sherlock:

There are one or two conifers in the background (which are even older than deciduous trees by a wide margin), but the majority of them in this picture are deciduous.

All right, you won. Conifers come from Carboniferous, so I confused period of about 223.6 million years ^^;
