Great work.  Good to see you posting again. 

 

I love when people work from real-life models for colors. This coloration really brings out the movement of the sculpt.

I agree wholeheartedly.  This is one of those figures that just screeches at you (well, me at least) don't you dare give a generic coloring.  Glad to see you didn't Grim.

Thanks for the comments everyone!  If you want a little of the messy details of creation, including an interesting story, I'll go into a few of them here:

 

The white is Vallejo's Dark Sand with highlights of Linen White and Pure White.  Mostly drybrushed because, well, feathers.  I used a more brown/yellow as the shade color after my experience with the Snowy Owlbear - a blue/grey shade looks neat, but pretty unnatural.  The black is Walnut brown, drybrushed with Dark Sand and Linen White, then washed with black ink and sometimes a little more drybrushing.

 

I initially painted the beak and claws Sun Yellow but they provided very little contrast with the white since the white had yellow/brown values.  I then mixed in some Lava Orange to get a sort of a light orange and used that - it looked more natural that way and allowed me to use the Sun Yellow as a highlight.  I'm particularly happy with the talons.
