A Bird In The Hand... by DanSchoening A Bird In The Hand... by DanSchoening
Quote:
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

Meaning:
It's better to have something small and reliable than something big and risky.

Origin:
The same sentiment comes from the Bible, Old Testament, Ecclesiastes ix - A living dog is better than a dead lion.

This pic is for Go check out his work, it is most excellent!

Love Birdie from Street Fighter...Not alot of good artistic reditions of Birdie out there...Like how you showed a sweeter, more milder Birdie with him holding a bird (convinent with the name)...The softest I've seen him, probably the only time, and you caught him in his ” weak” moment and drew him tremendously...Just don't let HIM know you did this or he might kick your ass with those signature spiky boots of his. I especially love the way you drew his mohawk...Great job :-) ;-)

Birdie is one of those street fighter chatacters that needs the 360 circle of the D-pad to do this powerful moves, so I don't use him much. I do lik ehim tho, he was the inspiration for my 'Spydah' character who is head of the Spider-Gang in my Go-Bee comic. You have nailed him down great man :thumbsup:
