    That issue will take a bit more time to work on. We'll let everyone know when you can change your display names again.

  • Hi,

    I just want to give some constructive criticism.
    The new bird model, featured in “A fell venture”, is gorgeous. Although it felt kind of odd. I had to wrap my head around it but, in the end, I figured it out.
    The bird in the story behaved like a Terror Bird or a raptor, but its physique did not show this at all. I know your world is a magical place and I respect that. If you want to keep that tiny bit of realism, of which you spoke in one of your recent videos, I suggest the following:

    Based of the skeleton of a Terror Bird

    https://www.google.com/search?q=terror+bird+skeleton&client=firefox-b-d&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjt2cb_zILjAhUCaFAKHUVyDEsQ_AUIECgB&biw=1440&bih=825#imgrc=npMsMn46rGlh8M:

    and keeping your previous design (and its intentions) in mind, I would stretch the legs a tiny bit to make it convincing enough that it hunts, but keeps it low enough to live in the jungle. Also pay attention to its posture, the skeleton of such a bird has its neck far more to the back of its skull, resulting in a slightly different neck-shape.
    I think the concept art is far more believable as a predator, even though it has no teeth.
    These are just suggestions and I in no way wana dismiss the artists effort and capability.

    As a closing thought: I like this model, but I lived the concept art and bought it… I´d love to see the Otter mount soon :grin:

    I would like to see this bird tempt people with shiny trinkets to make them follow it, like a crow trades trinkets for food. Except in this case the trinket would be bait. Muhaha! Maybe it could leave a trail of rubies and glittery things to lure you in. It would fit right in with known bird intelligence.
