Default Crow

I always seem to be posting un-finished work here, so just for a change here is one I finished earlier. Critique is always welcome

Thanks Zyk0tik, my goal was to create this bird with proceedural textures only. It took a lot of messing with lots of ramps

Very good stuff indeed.
How about asking Kevin for a Gallery submission?

The bird looks great! The composition is good. Only thing I feel looks a bit odd is the ground, it is a bit smooth.

:thumbsup: very cool indeed! Photo-realistic!

But have to agree about the branch... needs a little tune-up...
But the rest... again, very cool!

Yes, since the branch is in close-up, a displacement map would work better than bump. But that's just an opinion. I like it very much.

The transition from the 'solid' feathers to the edge feathers is a bit riugh. You can see the geometry a little too much. Other than that, looks great.
