Very clever. I like it. But the feathers don't seem to be there - it doesn't look fluffy enough. And there something wrong with the legs/feet. They almost look like goat or pig's hooves.

I'm reminded of your bicycle entry from way back when. You do really great monotone designs on cream. (No, I'm not being facetious--you do great work within those parameters, something very few designers pull off.)

That being said, the feet kind of looked weird to me, too.

Hmm, that's a good point. I can't say I know what an ostrich's foot is supposed to look like.

My family has ostriches and that is actually a really good depiction of an ostrich foot. Here is a picture of one: http://www.acclaimimages.com/_gallery/_pages/0382-0702-0611-2848.html

Wow, those _are_ weird. Good job, then, DF. Ignore what I said about the feet--they look spot on.
