Swamp Bird WIP

What happens when you cross an egret with a carnivorous plant? You probably get something like this...

I'm creating this creature design for Outcast Odyssey's "Card Master Challenge". The creature came together relatively quickly with the help of a maquette that I made. However, the background is going to be a challenge. The similarity of greens in the creature and the background help it blend a little too well with his environment, which is great camouflage, but not very good for that immediate visual punch you need in card art.

I made the maquette from wire, foil, and tape, which means he's fully poseable. A quarter serves as a counter-balance to support his spindly legs.
