McCawlin' You Out by MatthewSmith McCawlin' You Out by MatthewSmith
As mentioned previously, Mad Moe McCaw is one those wrestling blokes whose promos (those bits before or after a match where they growl straight into the camera about Life, The Universe and Everything insofar as it relates to the art of beating people up) tend towards the ranting and shouty. What you see here is a snapshot from a typical Mad Moe post-match monologue, where – fresh from clobbering the corblimey out of some unfortunate rival – he snatches the mike and issues a bellowing challenge, lasting anything up to 15 minutes, for some other brave soul to face him in the squared circle.

So who’s he calling out for a fight this time? Well, it’s kind of hard to tell with the sound off (not least because of the difficulties inherent in the reading of beaks), but it’s bound to be someone at least his equal in size, strength and resilience because it’s no fun if you can knock ‘em out with just a couple of punches. And macaws are notoriously territorial, so the presence of another large bird on what Moe considers his turf (i.e. the wrestling ring) could inspire his ire in no small measure...

I think I found myself a new challenger! >=3

Ash: If you say you wanted a challenge, then why don't we make this official between the two of us?
If worse was to come...I'll only feast upon the strong. And you're NEXT! *The titantron shuts off into a static*
*McCaw turns, to find 2 glowing eyes, staring at him...then...the lights turn back on* *With an evil smile, Ash points at McCaw, sending him a message*

You're not wrong. If Sylvester or Wile E Coyote tried to put him on the menu, they'd end up with their uvulas wrapped round their throats.

Pleased you like the big lug!

Moe would most definitely agree with you there. Look at that plumage! That's what comes of using a decent feather conditioner.

I always enjoy doodling comical characters, and I'm pleased he proves amusing. And I quite agree - we need more birdy bruisers to provide some contrast to the cutesy ones who spend all their time tormenting cats and/or singing twee musical numbers.

Funnily enough, for certain reasons, you'd be more likely to see him team up with Apeman to tackle villainous types...

How about Houndgrey`s Nicholai? That would be quite a challenge for McCaw.
I really like this character of yours, totally badass looking.

I only know a few folks who can do bird characters with such perfection, you're certainly tops. I can't imagine it's easy to capture a lot of expression with a beak, know I've struggled with it, so this is really awesome.

MatthewSmith Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2014
Many thanks indeed for the fulsome praise, sir! (And apologies for the catastrophically late reply.) Moe is immensely good fun to draw; the key with beaks, I've found, is a willingness to cheat with the basic shapes so that expressions can be rendered effectively.

This would undoubtedly be a fun thing. Any particular preference as to who'd be the best match-up for the belligerent bird?
