This is my first ever serious attempt at a model in Maya, as well as my first ever attempt at animating in Maya. It was a pretty big step to take in one go, but I found it surprisingly easy and a lot of fun :). It was done for a project. I'm definitely going to experiment in Maya during the summer, who knows in a while I may even be able to take modelling/animation commissions!

Things I would do better next time is the frame rate, as the animation doesn't quite run as smoothly as it could, and I'd take more time working on the texture. Of course my overall modelling and animating skills need a lot of work, but for a very first time I'm pretty pleased with the result :). It was a lot of fun anyway!

Similar to how any bird does it really, the bones would just be pulled close to the body. It didn't look quite as good because the wireframe would be a little squashed, but that was the idea. Thank you!

Very nice^^ I don't really know much about it, but I like it. I hope it is okay if I use some moves from perspective to perspective for my own animation project (for school)?
Sorry for any english mistakes~

Not at all, go ahead. Though be sure to study actual films of birds flying as well, you can't really go wrong there :).
