Another school project

THis one in particular was an open ended assignment, so i decided to create a model sheet of sorts for this one charcter I've been kicking around for a year or so. It's not much of a character yet, but I love his/her design. It's a half man, half bird thing which excels in the creepy department. I have some other sketches of him in some sketchbook, I would have to dig it out. Included are also scenes he/she could reside in. I had fun designing those, trying to leave little details like bones and crap. Birds of prey don't just toss their left over bones over the side of the nest, they pretty much just eat them and wait for them to come out, or they just leave them there and it becomes another part of the nest. However, I do feel this creature is more vulture like than anything else, so it may not kill too much prey. But i did create a terrible (It's not that bad, just not enough time was put into it) animated film about it feeding a baby, which was fun to do in less than a month of class time (about twelve to thirteen hours total, i think).

Here is the aforementioned animation. I posted months ago, but I'll repost it again for the sake of the convenience.

I really need to get back into animating. It's fun and cathartic to do sometimes. I've been just so focused on drawing drawing and painting, lately, I haven't been able to do it. Buth this summer, I will animate!!
