Weavercat is a 22 yr-old female thing who doesn't know what she wants to do in life. A current art-student who has rediscovered her love of prehistoric critters. I'd like to be a scientific/medical illustrator someday.

Weavercat: Day 7
Someone sent me a question! Thank you mysterious Anonymous for the great question. BirdFolk are about average people height. However if you will notice BirdFolk have long necks. Like their ancestors, Avis advena, they carry their necks in a slight S-shape. If a BirdFolk were to stretch out their neck to be almost straight it would add another few inches to their height. As for weight, exceedingly obesse BirdFolk are a rarity. Their high-metabolism keeps them at a weight of about 90+ lbs. 
Colors. Oh gosh, lets see. BirdFolk feathers are mostly body down and flexible contour feathers. BirdFolk lack a lot of feathers on their bodies. As for colors, most have natural colors like greys, blacks, rust, brown and blondish colors. Stripped, spotted or two-tone. Nobility is the only class that have iridescence in their feathers. Some BirdFolk engage in feather-dying or bleaching to make themselves stand out. 
Sexual dimorphism in BirdFolk is silly. Females have small boobs that secrete a milky-sweat. Males have external ding-a-lings. Not much of a difference but well, it’s there. Most males will have better feather-colors than the ladies too.

The Manticore, the Beer, and the Mountain

Oh my, well on that particular reference is for an Art-RPG by the name of Hetherev For this particular group Original Characters arrive in Hetherev with some memory loss. With Az, it’s like.. she walked out of the bar and suddenly: She was on a cold mountain-top without much of her memory. 

I’m totally going to recycle the poses and artwork from this ref into the proper official non-RPG, non-OCT reference. 

Ask me more questions! I love answering them!
