Noa by WormsandBones Noa by WormsandBones
We're still not totally set on a name for these guys, but the running joke at the moment is that its a 'noa', as in 'not-a-moa'. They're a little bit of terrorbird, a little bit of valcona, and a little bit of moa. Essentially, they were my 'oh god, I need to just MAKE something for fun', and not something we planned out extensively. We don't generally work so off the cuff (or if we do, we don't post it!) but we like him well enough.

We'll take a few of these guys to Fanexpo with us, just to see how they're received. And yes, he looks like he disapproves of your life choices from just about any angle. :P

We don't have a firm date for custom slots right now, as I'm on rest for an injury. There's no way for you to see how colours would look before its made (not sure how we'd accomplish this!), but you can always keep an eye on our shop and see if you like any of the in-stock noas that might come along. :)

Hehe... after we sculpted this guy, I realized his expression kinda reminds me of Sam the Eagle from the muppets.

Terror birds are among my favorite flightless avians, even if they are extinct. Their closest living descendant is the secretary bird, which lives in Africa and eats lizards and snakes. Then there's the roadrunner, and that eats lizards and snakes too. But that lives in America.

Curious, do you make several of the same colorations, or are each of these unique? As in... are these actually pictures of my baby, or perhaps one of his brothers/sisters?

(I'm the girl who kept pressuring you to come to Texas... I can't wait to show my buddy that bear of yours.)

Off the cuff? I saw such a creature in my back yard eating my cat's food. It looked just like this. Were you playing a joke on me? Now just put on a top hat and slide a cane under it's wing and it could dance. :laughing:
