Here's secretary bird finished. I hope it doesn't look like chicken at all. I'm not very proud if it, but it is the second bird I've ever made Wink I tried to sculpt the head 5 times and it still wasn't good enough, but well...

It was an excelent idea to start making birds. It forced you to find new solutions and abdicate a little of a common formula you've found to some of your mammals. Very Happy
This secretary birds is really very good, you not only managed how to do some little details as this is surely a hard work once the animal as a peculiar style and also, because you're working with delicated parts. Very Happy
Look at your bird with your proudest face and enjoy all the talent you have. Very Happy
OK, I'll only be not jealous of Nando if you make a nandu for me. Laughing cheers

Thank you very much my friends!!
My point with the head was that it is more oval than round in reality, like an eagle's.


Also the body is more like a triangle, and my sculpture is more oval. But anyway, I'm very happy that you like it my friends! drunken flower
