The Leap

An idea for a creature in the world I've had in mind for some time.  At some point I'd like to go into detail explaining more of the conditions of the planet.  This guy spends the vast majority of his life on the ground, only spreading his wings to fly when completely necessary in order to migrate across bodies of water.  His skin has formed in a way as to create maximum surface area, since this is the organ he uses to "see".  Receptors in the skin detect infrared and sound waves.  This helps to detect both predators and incoming harsh changes in the weather.
I started with a drawing, then sculpted it in Z-brush, and finally took that into Photoshop. I'll post the Z-brush model soon :)
