Gotta pick this as my favorite of your March entries, Usman, though the choice was far from easy. I adore the pov, the selective color, his expression and the moment you caught with him walking determinedly toward you. Great job!
Others that caught my eye particularly include The Slip (great detail on those talons); Raven's Abode (beautiful color and silhouettes); Tilling Sandy Land (full of interest for me); Steps, Windows and Peepholes (I love EoD and black and white so this was almost my pick of them all); Light Spirited (I would love to see this go on and Joy may be just the place for it to do so!); and Warriors' Dance (so much interest and detail and motion, all beautifully pulled together with the conversion). A good month for sure -- Good Luck.
