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. ^^
