i begin this thread with one piece and i hope i can update really often.
some critiques would be much appreciated!
this is the first one:
In Greek mythology, Stymphalian birds were man-eating birds with wings of brass and sharp metallic feathers they could launch at their victims, and were pets of Ares, the god of war. Furthermore, their dung was highly toxic. They had migrated to Lake Stymphalia in Arcadia to escape a pack of wolves, and bred quickly and took over the countryside, destroying local crops and fruit trees. Ridding the land of these birds was one of Heracles' Twelve Labors, and some sources claim the Stymphalian birds were the same avians that attacked the Argonauts.

Great composition, great action. The only thing I'm not entirely sold on are the colors you used. Perhaps all that green was to bring across the poisonousness of the creatures, but I find it rather ugly. The contrast with the red is just too much.
