Lovely artwork, as always.
My question is, why are there seagulls over Leriel? It is an inland town! I'm not saying they couldn't be there, but why not hawks or vultures or even a great northern eagle?
OK, that last would have detracted from the town. :) But it would have looked great!

What makes you think those are seagulls? I'd have guessed ravens.

I don't know what they're supposed to be, but I'd say neither seagull nor raven. They're gray.

Ravens black and gulls mostly white AFAIK. Got both visiting my backyard. :wink:

Gull colour depends on species and ethnicity, they can be gray, white, brown or black or combinations thereof. You could have gulls that far inland, particularly along a delta or major river system. 60 miles isn't uncommon but it can be double that.

Over 200+ miles from nearest ocean shoreline...and in a desert, to boot...and I've got seagulls frequenting my home town.

They are scavengers and don't need the sea. They do very well near human habitation subsisting on refuse.

The ones we have are white with gray wings, though the underside is a lighter color so they tend to look white aloft. In a previous abode, they used to drop clams and crabs on my deck to break their shells. Nasty birds with too little fear of people. 8)

True. The only ones I've ever seen in North America fit my description above which I suspect would also be Richard's point of reference.

Of course, he could just post and clear the whole matter up. Richard! What kind of freakin' birds are those? :lol:

True Harniacs. For all the rich detail in the setting, we're focused on ornithology.

True. I've seen them take sandwiches and ice-cream off kids. I've heard of them credibly attacking babies. Nasty vermin. Of course, they're starving following responsible fishing practices (less guts spilt into ships wakes).

I often see gulls peppering the lake near my house near Raleigh, NC, very well inland.

Where I grew up, they built a very big dam to feed a massive irrigation project in the surrounding land. Within a few years, we had hundreds of gulls around the lake, and that was 400 miles from the ocean. :) They absolutely don't need the ocean, but they do seem to prefer largish bodies of water.

I called them seagulls because that's what Richard Luschek said they were in his blog on creating the images.

Ahah! But he's clearly a lunatic. He just draws whatever the voices tell him to. :D
