What are the spikes for around the head

They're more like flared feathers. They use them to signal each other and show interest in the ladies. Kind of a physio emotional thing.

Wonderfully done. Great imagination!
The colors, the creatures are so great.
But might I add, I think if you changed your background up a bit it may enhance it further.
Just a thought. :)

the long neck and head give it a layout reminiscent of ahzdarchid pterosaurs; I like that. the toothlike projections on the wings are also an odd feature, that I assume are for gripping something.

wow, Im speechless :wow:
I mean -in a positive way. those creatures are so fascinating- cool!
I didnt realize those in the left corner were young ones at first glance, totally mistook them for plants.
ah, and the colours look so natural.
(not that I know much about colours. Im totally oblivous to how to use them or even paint a picture- but still- well done! ;P )

Really appreciate it Adrian. I like to include elements that the viewer may not notice until the 2nd or third time they look. Keeps 'em coming back back for more, know what I mean? Your illustrations are pretty amazing themselves. It's rare that I get to see such control with the traditional media, especially black ink. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to look. :)

Cool design, but what strikes me is the rich coloring and subtle highlights. Great stuff!

HOLY--!! Beautiful, man...Love the rows of barbs along the leading edge of the wings. Composition and layering of space here is fantastic; I could see this as a book cover.

Always a great sense of oily iridescence to your skin textures, whether that's intentional or not!

Thanks Thomas. Funny thing about that skin, gonna try and work on something dryer next time. :D
