A beautiful creation. The crest looks fantastic. The ‘fan’ technique is so versatile. My only piece of constructive criticism would be the wings – they need a little more texture like the crest. Be careful these types of creations can be very addictive :D. Excellent build.

Excellent work, the crest looks great both open and closed. The Katana is also a surprisingly effective beak.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera Go Deus! Thanks for the mention, I'm glad to have been an inspiration to you! Loving Howard, his crest and wings are brilliant and he has great character, something I try really hard to replicate with my bird creations. I like the idea of the banana oops katana (silly predictive text) for the beak it works really well. I have had a lot of requests to build this and will when I get round to the African series. I will certainly be taking some cues from this fine creation. Well done Dues, Howard is lovely!
I must say i had a lot of fun buidling this guy and his diferent poses ! I did had to go to the store to buy a few more parts for him but it turned out all fine ! It was a great and new expierince in parts usage for this guy ! Thank you for the kind words and i'd love to see your version on this one ! ;) I have been to South Africa this year so it would be awesome to recognize them ! Keep me updated please ! :)
