Just replied to kiera-oona in the Completed Projects board who couldn't remember where she'd seen the tutorial for Dinko's "boids" (which she modified into a polymer-covered pen):
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=376459.msg4441344#msg4441344

But I also wanted to add more info about Dinko and all his wonderful critters and figures.

The face looks like the ones done by Dinko Tilov (from Bulgaria).  The original lesson for his "boids" long ago was at Polymer Clay Central:
http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/castle/lesdinkobird.html
He also has a copy of that lesson at his site:
http://www.funclay.com/How-to%20Projects/bird%20with%20teeth/index.html

...After his lesson at PCC, there was a big swap there for "Birds With Teeth"--definitely check all those variations out!:
http://www.polymerclaycentral.com/swap_bwt1.html


He's also written two books (one with his brother Boris) on making other critters and figures in his inimitable style:
http://www.amazon.com/Creating-Fantasy-Polymer-Characters-Step/dp/1592530206/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1301154753&sr=1-1
http://www.amazon.com/Sculpting-Mythical-Creatures-Polymer-Clay/dp/1592535143/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1301154613&sr=1-1
(You can also "Look Inside" both those books to see more...I click on the Table of Contents link, then choose a word from it to do the Search for to see what you'd like to see.)
more from 2nd book: http://mythcritters.blogspot.com

Dinko actually makes all kinds of amazing figures and critters!!:
