Bird-folk Sketches

By Zummeng

I've been brainstorming about a lovely bird-folk race in medieval setting and clothing style. I wanted to make them stereotypical here and there, but actually I was only drawing what I could just think of, or what looked fun. For example, a rooster with an axe looked fun for me X) Or a flower lady toucan who could maybe have some difficulties picking flowers because of her large beak… but maybe if she turned her head it could work. I didn't think this through, but had my fun with her design XD The rest of the birdies are just like that too. I wanted to find some medieval tropes, and pair them with birds I felt would suit those tropes the best. You guys have no idea how much fun I had drawing these cute birdies :) Hope you like them!

Oh, I like these. I like these a lot. The diversity is magnetic. I want to know about each and every one. A credit to your character design.

I love 13 sssoo much! She's so elegant and kind looking. But I feel like number 10 is a duck mom who will feed you till you burst and then tuck you into bed, so i think I'm obligated to love her most.
