I know this is older, but I love the detail here! Preening is not a very common subject, and your depiction is flawless.

It's got to kill your patience doing all the details on those feathers. It would me. :P

I love how you colored the sky and the griphon has a similar color like one of your chickens. So, whats about a chicken griphon one time? ^^

Beautiful work as ever Nambroth!

One thing I realize when out at the lakes watching the swans, is just how much of their day they spend preening and spreading oils around. I suspect people wanting to become a feathery creature of sorts, often don't realize just how many daily hours will be spent on feather maintenance! *grins*

It can be a lot of hours! Some species must keep their feathers in top shape, and some must spread oil carefully (waterfowl especially).
