Okay, I'll try to do something new while I reexamine my usage of time used to play more Oblivion and doing less school assignments.

It's a artwork series where it features headshots of species from my world, two per each (male and female). Concept art-like stuff! And it's the first time I submitted an artwork that I made on FireAlpaca! Wowee!
Like I said on my status update, I tried a new form of coloring and did cell-shading (I've never really done it and showed it, but now I did!). I also kept the pencil-ish outline! Plus transparency!!

:iconrosediv1plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv3plz:

This is a Na'maluu-ele, a mysterious species in my world. They have bird-like features (they have no wings tho...) and they once lived in an island country called Nulin, which is near Lucida. This headshot is of a Na'maluu-ele male (with bits of tribal war paint).

It is believed that they existed before the Genesis Era (Frierri, 1st Era) and went 'extinct' at the end of the Void Era (Alkuishen, Era of Nihility). Of course, in my world, they barely know anything about the Void Era other than that it was the time the gods created time and space. Vera-Nepranya was made in the middle of the Void Era and the only evidence they have of the Na'maluu-ele existing at that time were fossils and artifacts found in Nulin.

They may or may not even exist at all. There's lack of evidence of course...
Scholars from the Sakinon believed these unknown people now lived in a spiritual world called Merkai, meaning paradise (I like to put words in translation box and that's a Hawaiian word right there mixed up with my imagination). Merkai was a plane of Asalca.

Asalca is a realm that holds dream, spiritual, and unknown properties.

:iconrosediv1plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv2plz::iconrosediv3plz:

Here's some things that I used while making a species like this.

The Na'maluu-ele is based off of the Hawaiian Hawk.
the maluu part came from the Hawaiian word manu, meaning bird. The rest, I probably made it up.

Thinking about the beak as a nose, it reminds me of those bird people LoZ: Wind Waker...

Plus, Nulin is a country based off of Polynesia. Nulin is now occupied by walkers (humans) that like to manipulate the heart for sacrificial purposes (I'll get to that later...)

I'll make the female headshot of the Na'maluu-ele.

:bulletred: Also, what do you think about this picture? About the new coloring style? I would love criticism for this to see if I should use this method for future art pieces. :bulletred:

the merge of the bird and the human elements looks very organic and makes a lot of sense :)

Little question, what's spooky about it?

Oh! It's probably how similar it looks to a person, but also resembles a bird. Kinda hits the uncanny valley of not quite being either, but feeling similar. There's a lot of sharp points, like the chin and the beak-nose, that kinda make me wonder about how they are. And the more animalistic eyes make it hard to understand what he's looking at.

I think that's mainly what makes him spooky, to me at least! That make sense?

The elegant, long design and small details (curves) of the feathers... very nice!
