Trial Run - My Creative Space

I love little birds, I love the unbelievable variety and the amazing detail when you take a closer look. The only thing I don't like about them is that they poop all over my car, I have a crazy one that smacks into my kitchen window on a regular basis, and the cockatoo's chew my TV aerial........other than that they are great and I thought it was about time I did a trial run on one of my own!
I took a bit of inspiration from these cute little wire forms.
The legs were a bit tricky............trying to get the balance right was almost as hard!
I think I'll have to do the wings again........these ones would be perfect for a slightly smaller bird.
There are a few things that can be improved upon, it might take me a few goes to get it right.........but in the mean time I still have this cute little bird to talk too.
For many more creative spaces head on over to kootoyoo and say hello.
Thanks for stopping by

you are kidding me. thats a trial run. he is fantastic. he has so much personality. i love birds in a crafty sense but i don't like them up close. they are all boney and feathery they creep me out a bit. but yours i could love.well done
