amazing

Indeed, it is amazing, but I couldn't see a goblin riding a giant eagle/hawk/whatever-bird-it-is. Goblins are destructive and evil, and hawks are beautiful and elegant. Goblins would most likely ride in a war blimp, or maybe have bat wings, or maybe ride a giant bat itself. Still thought, very great, I love goblins and all things greenskin.

kickass!

the colors are really striking and the concept is great. Your bird anatomy might need a little work, The wing on the right is kind of confusing. Its hard to tell whats on top and whats on bottom.

Amazing

This is a really powerful and also beautiful artwork, it's clear to see that a lot of effort has gone into this.

The way that the giant bird "bursts" through the flames ( which are made and coloured to an exceptional standard.) is really well done. The bird's feathers are also constructed really nicely too.
The shadings are well placed ( with the reddish; purplish tinge ) and add to the chaos factor of the piece.
There's also the comedic element too, I almost start to laugh upon seeing the goblin grinning madly with a bomb in its hand. Yup, definitely "service with a smile"!

Great piece of work, colouring works, somewhat amusing and well detailed. 98/100 A*.
