Secretary Bird vs. Cassowary by windfalcon Secretary Bird vs. Cassowary by windfalcon
EPIC BIRD BATTLES OF HISTORYYYYYYYYYYYYY

SECRETARY BIRD.

VERSUS.

CAAAAAAAAAAAASSOWARY.


BEGIN!

This is a minipainting commission for Ookamiichi08 on FA, who requested this epic bird battle be illustrated. At first I figured the cassowary would win, hands down, due to the fact that when it kicks, it can easily disembowel humans with its 5-inch-long blade-like claw, but then I thought maybe with its smaller size, the secretary bird might be able to throw some dirty moves, like talons right to the face.

WHO WON? WHO'S NEXT? YOU DECIDE (not really, but if you want to suggest other bird battles for the fun of it feel free!).

Watercolor and white gouache on hot-press Fabriano, 5X7 inches.
