Just a doodle I did on the back of a Chemistry paper last year that became a bit more time-consuming than I had intended it to be.
This guy's an osprey-pirate, and my original character (although he doesn't have a name yet), so no takey!
Anyway, I love ospreys. They are awesome birds. They have polarized vision so they can see through the glare on the water when they're hunting for fish. They have rotate-able toes. And a few years ago, I saw an osprey fall into a pond after it had grabbed a fish too big to carry. It was too wet to fly, and the fish was too heavy to lift, so it used its wings to *dog-paddle* over to the bank, and--still holding onto that fish!--climbed out, stood over its prize, and hissed at me! Incredible! (I'm a chronic raptor geek, just warning you...)
I might move this to scraps later, or I might color it if I have the time. Let me know what you think.
