Aurornis Thing by Book-Rat Aurornis Thing by Book-Rat
I forgot to upload this here. .___.;

It was supposed to be an Aurornis, but I think the leg wings are way too long and it wasn't actually a glider at all. That's alright, we'll just say it's some generic species related to Microraptor or Archaeopteryx.

Carved foam, apoxie sculpt, and feathers, in that order. ^^; I'll do a walkthrough at some point when I'm less busy.
It's not poseable at all.

Thanks~

I am stunned. I'm a biologist, and while I was googling for artwork depicting Aurornis and other feathered dinosaurs, I found your pictures. This is an incredible piece of art-meets-science.

Who cares about inaccuracies when it's absolutely incredible otherwise? I'm beyond impressed with the amount of life you've breathed into this.

Yep~ I do commissions and usually list my extras in my Etsy shop, but I'm out of town until Christmas so this one is kinda unavailable. ^^;

Mostly, there's some lady Amherst and golden pheasant feathers too. But a friend of mine started breeding Sebright chickens and he gave me a sick one for my crafts, plus a breeding pair.
I had to clip some of their feathers for this project too. ^^;

This is so lifelike.  The colors are pretty believable.  And the arrangement of the feathers are so perfectly fantastic.  Again, gorgeous job!
