SPAZZES they have wonderful colors, I have been meaning to make a character out of one but I never have the time :'(

:D ty, I've got lots of photo studies packed away on my tumblr (I hoard them), so I'll be doing studies every now and then.

I have so many ideas for bird chars but never really have time to flesh them out either. /: I don't like having 'sitting duck' characters where all they do is sit in my gallery forever. Hope you do find the time to create one though!

same, I have been through about 4 bird characters and I can't figure out what to do with them. I think it's the lack of emotion they have and the complexity of the wings and the limited amount of composition they can have without looking cliche.

:icontatchit:
Tatchit Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2012
yeah, true. Birds have such a wide variety of wing patterns and anatomy. Unlike canines which you can mix and match body parts, birds seem to have a tighter form allowing more limited ways you can construct them (unless they're totally make believe.) I don't think you could put cardinal legs on a hawk and get away with it, but you could put corgi legs on a coyote and probably get away with it being 'cute.' With a bird that wouldn't be cute, that would be down right going against function. XD

Emotion is another thing, you're right. It's hard to make a bird smile or make facial expressions without making it look really funky/corny unless you're using their eyelids somehow. They're all noise or body movement.

But maybe that will somehow be an advantage in a story. Instead of sneering, the bird could cree or rustle feathers. idk, so many possibilities.

I've got a sebright chicken char that I've basically untouched for quite some time, but now that I have a real sebright and I think I can make a character out of it.

haha, I'll have to upload some rl pics of him to Tumblr and link you sometime (I bought him as a chick hoping he was a hen, nope lol.)

He's a silver laced sebright and sports a very cocky attitude...haha.
