Holy crap! When I first saw the thumbnail, I thought it was a photo of the actual bird! Very well done :3 Especially on the head! Those eyes in particular are so life-like!

Thanks.I made the sculpture within certain constraints,i.e the amount of materials and time.Also the workshop was freezing cold which made it difficult.The eyes are made in Austria:)

A heron is a bird. A dinosaur is... well... a ginormous prehistoric lizard. They're not the same thing.

THIS IS SO COOL AND SUPER REALISTIC W OW

what materials did you use?

Thanks dreameroftheblue.I used polymer clay and epoxy putty over a metal form(fencing wire,mesh and aluminium sheet(recycled)for the feathers.Its undercoat-sprayed and finished with high grade acrylics.The eyes I buy.I tend to go piece to piece and sometimes it might go to a gallery.Often its to commission,which is why there is a wide variety of subjects in my gallery here,people ask me to make some strange things that I wouldn't have thought of myself though enjoyed the challenge.:)
