Osprey Reference by shorty-antics-27 Osprey Reference by shorty-antics-27
Finally, a simple reference is up for him! I have had this sitting in my folders for at least 3 months now, so I decided to finish it up. I do plan on doing a much more in-depth reference for all of my characters in the future. So far, the only character I can do that for is Pierce. 8C grrr, I need to figure all of them out!

lol that main picture of Osprey has a few mistakes... like his neck connecting in the wrong place. >_O FFF so old!

My favorite out of all these is his side view. Something about it makes me happy. D8 Side views are always so annoying for me.


I want to draw more of him, but because of his markings, it's making me avoid him for some reason. x'D and NO, I'm not changing his markings. D8 I like them like this.

But, Shinerai on DA inspires me greatly to do/finish these references! >8D

This character is fantastic! How did you think up the concept? I mean, the humanesque similarities, mixed with those of the Osprey are wonderful! I especially love the patterns and those eyes. So sharp. Not to mention the pose is phenomenal. Awesome work! ouo/

ahhh, sorry for the late reply! @_@''

Thank you very much!
This is just something I love to do with anthro characters. D8 I look at the animal I base them off of, then try to get them as close to the animal as possible, with maybe a few changes. It becomes really easy when the animals pretty much are bases for designs. D:

I can't help but wonder about this character though, I'm so curious about him. Ahhh, if only I could Roleplay with him/you.
I like the design for his wings mostly, and he does greatly resemble and Osprey, so you did well to get him very spot on with the avian he represents! Excellent work. ^^

YUS THEY DO. I have a cool osprey story: a couple of years ago, when I lived in South Carolina, I had to walk past a couple of little ponds to get to my bus stop. The ponds usually had interesting things in them--often alligators, or at least turtles and herons, and once there was an otter. (:heart:!) Anyway, I was walking past the one pond and I saw this huge splash rise up over the bank. I thought maybe a dog or kid or something had fallen in, so I ran over to look. It was a young osprey who had dove after a big fish and fell in instead. He was splashing around with this huge fish in his talons, and by now he was too wet (and the fish far too heavy) for him to fly. And he absolutely refused to let that fish go. So he turned around and started *dog-paddling* with his wings toward the bank--still holding the fish! He actually got all the way there by swimming with his wings, hauled in his fish, and stood over it hissing at me. It was totally awesome! 8D

ARGH INORIGHT I TOTALLY SHOULD. :| Actually, I just had another great bird experience today: I went outside into our breezeway--it's kind of an indoor-outdoor hallway that connects the garage to the house--and there was an eastern kingbird trapped inside. I think it must have flown in the open garage and gotten stuck. We have a big sliding-glass door there and the poor thing was knocking itself silly trying to fly out. It finally landed on the floor in a daze, so I threw my shirt over it and carried it back outside. She flew off and perched in a tree as soon as I let her loose, so I'm guessing she was fine. It was really sweet, though. :heart:

Love his design, and birds in general <3 Harpies are awesome, along with many other underated species of mythical creatures!

but lately I've been working on an idea of mine and a bunch of people are crossed with birds, and theres just so many birds it's a blast
