Oooh, another great piece, I like this series. This bird-like creature is definitely a perfect addition to the "watchers" world you've created. Excellent job on the the combination of the different mediums. The bone structure, while seemingly all out of place and misshapen, fits perfectly for the creature, as if that it's on it's way through a change from one creature to another. The skin work on this is amazing, all the details done so well; the bumps, the imperfections, the folds, and the way it streches (and tears at the wound) make it add to the realism. The beak and head are very interesting, because there's no breaks in the skin other than the eye (which is too dark to see) make it seem like the real beak and head are concealed underneath the skin, which is a really freaky aspect to this disturbing creature. As always, I love the amount of time and work that goes into the backgrounds too, the ground and lower wall behind the creature are dead on for what could be any dark lit alley with brick walls that have been plastered over like a mexican adobe building. This whole piece makes this creature seem even more real than the last, I swear you could manip this into an actual photo of some alley and it would appear to really be there, or even more nightmarish, you could see this as you walked down the wrong back alley some night. I can't wait for the third in the series.
