PostSubject: Shoebill and secretary bird for Nando   Fri Sep 06, 2013 2:44 pm

Hey guys, I'd like to post a picture of my shoebill which I'm making for Nando. The secretary bird still looks like a long-legged chicken so I won't show it to you yet Laughing The shoebill is still in progress of course, but if you have any suggestions, I'd like to hear them, since I can make changes at this step. I've noticed already that the bill might be a bit too small.
I'd also congratulate all the people who recently made fantastic sculptures or customized other figures, I was very busy recently and didn't have time to comment all the threads.

I hope you will like it, Nando!

Oh, it is so great that you're sculpting one of Nando dreams!!! Yes, sculpting dreams should be fantastic. Very Happy
I am sure you'll be able of getting the character of a shoebill that is the most important feature of this bird. Very Happy
Ha, What is the look of a long-legged chicken? Laughing

Thank you very much my friends! I'm very happy that I have an opportunity to sculpt for someone. I'm almost finished with my exams so I should finish both of them soon.
