Stylized pigeon animations

Hey there!
What began as just a stylized pigeon-sculpt has turned into something more.
After doing the retopo and then painting and rigging, I eventually wanted to see how far I can push a bird like this.

I have never animated a bird, so this will be interesting.

This is the first few animations I did, plan to do more in the coming week.

Tweaked the texture and made a flat-shader to compare.

This is the same animation, but rendered flat.

Right. I tweaked the texture a bit and made a second bird so both lighting and flat styles can be viewed side by side.
