A particular species of seagull, the Pink Footed Shearwater inspired this character. It’s the star for a short film supposed to teach people what to do when they find one of these, stranded ashore. Yougsters leave the nest by October and many times fly into shore lights (cars, lighthouses) confused. It’s a protected species in the Azores Islands, so if you happen to stumble across one, be gentle but beware (large sharp beak!).
All Blender, some postpro just to balance color a bit.
