    I'll try with more ripped background, so it will look more like a wave.

    Carrion = Bat? Anyways, as said, the background really needs work. Eventually you could add a night sky instead of that green glow (Night sky = Stars, moon(s), even northern light)

    I don't know, I asked "Is carrions the same as bats" but I wrote it a wrong way, easily misunderstandable.

    well, the background needs work, the "wave" ends at the top right corner and that looks weird :/ but the bats are nice :)

    It's really good actually. Some things to mention
    • The big bat is a bit too blurry, it is as if it has been smudged.
    • It needs one touch of sharpness.
    • It looks... dirty (not in a sexual way of course :p).

    Kinda funny, I made a spell using bats' concept yesterday.

    LoL, there you go! Now I love it :)
    You defined the bats better, you removed useless shadowing from the nearest bat, you sharpened it a bit (did you?). Good job.

    I would also like to see an additional color with background colors of purple and black (oh yes, THAT I will use for the spell I made!).
