Here is a picture I drew a while back that I recently cleaned in Photoshop. The original had a horrible mishap with the lines on the beak area and I nearly scrapped it. ^\/^.
In this picture, Raven the Trickster from the Disney cartoon show Gargoyles is bulked up in the upper body like a body builder. The lower body remains largely the same with the difference in that I increased the usual width of his thighs and calves somewhat. No reason to do this beyond just to draw him with muscles. I also changed his usual lion cloth to a more speedo look. The result is a look similar to a body builder.
I personally like the look of how I rendered the eyes and Raven the Trickster's signature marks around his eyes. I also like how the wings turned out. I wonder if I should of had muscled up the legs as well for a more balanced look. The arm muscles are a bit off and incorrect, but it was a relatively quick drawing anyhow and, for a quick drawing, it turned out well. LOL. ^\/^.
As a personal note, I wish the developers and maintainers of this web site would add the word 'Raven' to the list of avian species. Also, crow is a member of the corvid, or corvidae, species and is thus redundant. That would be like expecting us to know that eagle, falcon and hawks are of the raptor species of birds. Though I am aware of this and such, most others know diddly about that and it should be corrected. Also, gryphon and griffon are two alternate common spellings of the same creature. They should list that as griffon / gryphon to avoid redundancy.
Then again, avians were never treated as well as most furries, even in shows and anime. Raven the Trickster, for example, was in only one episode of Disney's Gargoyles. That episode being called Heritage (season 2 episode 25). Griff, one of my other favorite characters from that show, was in two episodes, M.I.A. (season 2 episode 29) and Pendragon (season 2 episode 35). ^\/^.
