    Very nice!
    The sculpting of the skin gives the right sensation of skin of a bird/chicken and the texture is good too, but the use of ZS2 is really amazing!

    The only tip I could tell you is about the beak: the tip of the bottom part should follow the curved form of the upper part, it should point down and not up as you did, but it's a fantasy character, so it could be!

    looking great! specially the head and neck. the humanoid anatomy is pretty accurate too. I just want to make a small suggestion if you don't mind. the legs could be given the bends and curves the human leg has. attaching an image to show u what i mean. should be easy to do with masking + transpose + move, rotate etc ). ignore this if you are going for the straight legs of a bird such as the stork etc.

    This is amazing!!! I'd love to see the whole project when it is done!!!

    I've tried to create characters with the Z-Sketch method, but I always end up stopping short because of certain areas that pinch and poke out when I smooth them.

    Great job ! This vulture theme is great, keep it up ! The train looks nice, it might just lacks a bit of specular on some areas, even if it's rusty and used.
    The vulture man si great, especially the right eye. Good job. =)

    very nice I love the rendering.
    its feels a bit strange, like hand panted? or its in the modeleing? Some facets?
