My finished blushing owl from kingdom death:

Those who dwell in the domain of the Ringtail Fox mark time by the Blushing Owl’s plumage. The great bird’s hormones respond to seasonal vapors that emanate from the swamp causing drastic changes to the shades and hues of its long thick feathers. As it gazes into still water, its mandible flushes a hue of bright pink as it is startled by its new appearance, embarrassed by its own reflection.

This was my first try at a larger kind of diorama base for a figure. Didn't come out perfectly, but overall happy with it.
