Improved my design, wasn't really up to par with all the great ones other people have submitted, still isn't, but heh ho!
Still the same bird, uses his large tentacles to catch fish, and lives on a swampy-kinda planet, where there is little dry land, so it has to build it's nest in the reeds/mud.
A sprinting bird who lost its wings and evolved its feathers for optimal balance. Its feathers channel air allowing sharp cornering in the same way a fish fin works.
Like frogs, this bird has a very large neck sack which it inflates and shakes to attract a mate.

K these are my birds finally got a new tablet so digital is possibru again!!
So yeah supposed to be alien birds... most ended up just being a bunch of very tropical birds
Also the colors dont have to be the same for each bird, its just kinda possibilities for color schemes.
Alien bird designs. ended up mostly like really tropical birds.

Hi here are my bird designs
some crazy bird that doesnt have any claws =( so instead they fly from thousands of feet up and just dive into any prey they want and headbutt them to death
Hey, this is my first post on conceptart, design lab or otherwise!
Voxn, I saw your video and I think you've come up with some really nice designs, I think I like two and three the best because they're quite compact yet create a lot of visual interest.
Here's my contribution:
I was just thinking that if wings probably evolved from legs, could they go back the other way? Probably not very practical but maybe interesting...
1-4 I imagined as pretty huge (except maybe 3 which could also work as a smaller creature), while 5-7 as less than 50cm sized birds.
1) transport creature 2) aggressive (ridable) predator 3) a bird with a kangaroo-like pouch 4) somehow infected with an alien parasite, resulting in the carnivorous tentacles 5) a multitude of wings which during flight emit light and a ramming break 6) more on the cute side, somehow propeller type flying (impossible, i know :p ) 7) a multitude of eyes
