Great video exemplifying neuroplasticity.
 
Great video Destin! For the record I tried riding this bike in a hotel hallway and crashed into the wall. I've experienced other unlearning problems driving on the left/right in Australia and Canada and even flicking on light switches (in Aus it's down for on).

I love the "Feathery leopard" color scheme you've got going on here :)

I'm not happy yet with the model. I think his legs are a bit too long.

Gee, who wouldn't want to go on a suicide mission to Mars while cameras document your demise over a few weeks?
 
Gee, what a surprise: Mars One is an underfunded joke, according to a finalist who can't take the BS any more. They choose finalists based on a ten-minute Skype conversation (as opposed to, you know, a rigorous battery of psychological tests that determine fitness for close-quarters space travel), and it sounds suspiciously like they're fleecing their own candidates for money. And on and on. You get the picture.

Oh, and their vaunted multi-billion-dollar TV deal fell through.

Via +Slashdot​.
No money, no process, no explanation: An insider speaks out for the first time on the hopelessly flawed scheme to fly to…

I think they would use a lot of colors on the feathers, like modern birds, bird of paradise, peacock, parrots, etc.  Nice model idea.

Shorter legs. Is the head too small?

The head looks just fine. Other than the current lack of feathers (which I think you are already working to fix) the only con I can see is the position of the forearm. Should be facing more medially (palms facing inward like a person about to clap).

Other than that, it looks amazing.

Someone wanted to see bright feathers/colors.
The upright pose makes him look more like a small raptor, but if a T-rex wanted to make reasonably quick turns, he'd almost have to run like this. If not, it would be easy to get away from a T-rex — not through speed, but by zig zagging all over the place.
