I am starting to model an eagle for an animation at my work. Does anyone know where I can find some tutorials or some tips on how to model it, especially the wings. I've looked around on the web before and I couldn't find much on the subject. Anything you guys know in relation to modeling birds in general would be helpful. Thanks.

Funny you should ask. Only, I was looking for the same info, and found this thread on cg talk, it has some very useful links:

Thanks for the fast reply.
I looked at that cgtalk thread and I think I understand the concept of the wing setup, but I don't understand 3Ds Max, so I am a bit lost on how to translate that into Lightwave. I tried that little wing test phormis was talking about, but I got lost when he was saying add an attachment controller and so on.
