Sorry for the bad joke! OK, so maybe I'm not really sorry. ;) I've grown to love bad jokes.
This is a 3D model I started over the weekend, as a part of my new portfolio. The modeling portion is almost done, I just need to add some claws and clean up the geometry a bit (too many loops on the side of the bird). I hope to UV map it tonight, and start painting the texture map for it tomorrow.
