This is the current design of one of the people in my little project. I'm currently calling them Core'vidan[kɔr ' vidæn ?] for the moment but I'm not sure on the name so it might change. Not that the name is that important now when I'm just trying to focus on just making concepts.
So these guys, the Core'vidians, are a kind of bird-like people(obviously) and they are all based off of birds in the Corvidae family, i.e. birds like ravens, crows, jackdaws, magpies and such. They are a knowledge hungry race that often end up as some kind of scholar or doctor which makes them extremely intelligent and great healers. They are unable to use magic from their own body but they can use magical objects that they find and create themselves. And because they are so hungry to know everything, they obviously have explorers as well that travels out through out the world and documents everything. They tend to spend most of their time on the ground but if they have to (when they need to flee or travel) they can fly quite well.
The Core'vidians will be the creators of this gigantic library/city that I mentioned earlier in my first project sketches of Zoe.
But as always, every race can't be perfect so even the Core'vidians got traitors, criminals, robbers and others who deviates from the typical and just path of the Core'vidians. Which is why they have been forced to train a few fighters in this city, to protect themselves. But they are pacifists so they rather create alliances with others to both help them out in their search for knowledge and to protect them in their own home. In return, they gladly help their allies with information.. to a certain extent that is. They do not like to share information that may be used to start wars or gain superior power over others.
The cloth design of these is inspired mostly by 1800- and early 1900 western clothing. Not sure how to do the females yet though but we'll see.
