That's right: Combat Ostrich. Technically it's a Cyborg Combat Ostrich. It's the counterpart to the Cyborg Deer. The deer finds the things what need shootin', and the ostrich does the shootin.'
I saved a few in-process images this time around, which isn't something I do enough of. The basic idea never strayed much from the original conception.
The ostrich has been implanted with control hardware, armored-up and had a weapons system bolted to it's skeleton.
I got to this point and decided to make a few relatively small changes. The sensor cluster at the base of the neck was screwing up the silhouette, the armor didn't look right, and the head was completely divorced from the shape of an actual ostrich's head.
Much more terrifying!
I have a few more ideas in the pipeline along these lines....
