One source of my creations is a quarterly magazine called Balloon Magic. They featured a Cockatiel creation, made with a few non-standard balloons.

It uses a 646q for the main body, 160qs for the crest and legs, a black 5″ heart, and 260qs for the rest. The original was all white, with a yellow crest, but I thought I’d play with it, and came up with this guy. He’s much more colorful!
