    very very very nice!
    i love how you were able to blend anatomy with imagination to make those truly beautiful people!
    keep on posting, i can't wait to see more!

    p.s. don't get worried if you don't have a lot of comment on your sb for awhile. it takes some time for the people to start rolling in. let me asure you, this is gonna be a 5-star sketchbook in no time

    Very nice indeed! Though the noses seem somewhat beak-like. But then again, that would make sense. Who nose. lol (blech)

    Anyway, here are my suggestions:

    1. Make the noses smaller. This would seem more natural in regards to a humanized look.
    2. Make the noses a little more beak-like. If you are aiming for an avian snout.
    3. Changing the size of just one of the noses (I elect the woman for rhinoplasty, males tend to have larger schnozes).

    As it is, they just look like they both have really big noses. Not that big noses are bad (I have a fair sized one myself), but I would either give them beaks or make the noses stick out less, literally and figuratively.

    Absolutely beautiful work otherwise. I refuse to criticize anything else.

    EDIT: I just checked out your work on the ImagineFX forum. One word, gorgeous. Waiting to see more! Will this be a purely digital-sketch thread? I'm hoping to see some of your pencil work on here.

    Very cool, you have a pretty sweet imagination. Good job on combining both aspects of human and avian anatomy. I would love to see more from you, keep it up

    Ignominious: thanks! :D
    FunkdaFide: yeah, I had thought about that before and I tried a while to make a more cone-like beek-like beeknose as you said but it all looked unnatural :/ besides for aerodynamic pov. this way is probably the larger the better as a smaller cone like beeknose would only move airresistance to closest skin around it while this kind makes whole face a bit more streamlined plowshaped :P
    perhaps their teeth-rows should be more V than U also to make better airplow.
    about pencil yes I'm trying to get really adjusted to digital so I won't prefer pencil so much anymore so only digital in here but if/when I do draw some pencil and I have some stuff to scan, I'll update my ifx thread too. thanks alot for the comments and I love that sort of discussion! :D
    Hardedge and Pyroclasm00: thanks!

    sorry, but I should be drawing instead of seing your sb! IS TOTTALY INSPIRING!
    very pretty linework, and I think that the big noses are good for your characters, like birds.
    cant wait to see more!

    cheers!

    Hey nim, cool drawings, yeah damn you're doing great work with the lines. Really expressive.
    Like the bird people. The nose-beak and the way you've pushed the sternum out a little bit. Great.

    And the colour stuff. Bam, gorgous. You know how to work both with line and mass, great.

    So where are you from then? Live in Sweden? Come draw with me then

    I really enjoy your drawings a lot, and I agree I want to see something more finished! I think there is a lot of charm in line work alone though, perhaps with a varied weight?

    These are great nim, actually suprised me. I think the first one is the best, the picture made a whole story pop in my mind.
