Another test + comparison!
I wasn't to pleased with the one on the left outside of the few things that transferred over to the right (feet feathers!). Also rearranged the wing feathers from shortest to longest (from in to out).
The one on the right generally looks a bit more similar to the original Archen. I felt the other was a bit too far off. I think I was really only pleased with the shading on that one.
Nixing the goggles/bandana -- I don't see how they'd work with his character anymore, and he looks fine without'em. Might also change around his move set some.
