The rendering on this is really strong. It took me a minute to realize that the left front leg was down and the left rear leg was back... the perspective puts that grounded front leg right in line with the right back leg / wing, so it felt very much like the two were intended to be bilaterally symmetrical rear legs. The head reads well, though I’m back and forth on the neck. The surface texture reads beautifully (as it does throughout the piece), but the structure reads like a puffy coat or wingback chair with deep upholstery. It almost feels inflated. If you can reign that puffiness in I think it’ll read better.
