At an obsequious angle and with various angles on an outdoor background, I intend to take several pictures of my dearest drinky-bird in various stages of drinking. These'll get sorted into a sensible order, and form the basic content of an animation of the bird's typical activity. At this point, I'll heap praises on the thing in various ways: sing its hymns; pile offerings, effigies and sacrifices at its big plastic feet; frame it in various styles with bells, herbs, its magical symbols and other pseudomystical shrinery; introduce it to minions and worshippers (perhaps resolution-wise abased before it)...
...and only then, if there's time, play with the tired old Photoshop tools I was hoping to avoid, to do the nimbus and sparkliness appropriate to an object of its standing.
