B. B. Byrd by Viergacht B. B. Byrd by Viergacht
I've been trying to design a character's alternate monster form for this thing I'm writing, and I've never been totally happy with it. I'd gotten to a design I kind of liked, with a skull-shaped face, but then attack on titan came out and the lead character's titan form looked too similar, and of course skull faces are a massive overdone cliche. So I was thinking, what are some things that creep me out, and one of them is baby birds (altricial birds). This is an anthropomorphic baby bird, I don't think that's been done before much, but I could be wrong. I probably won't go with the character looking like this, but it was a fun thing to draw today and kill some time.

I'm in complete agreement with you - baby birds are as creepy as hell (I drew on this last year with "Fimm and the Pinkies). I'll blame the premature look. I may have to use it more often myself!

I was definitely going for gross - baby birds are weird looking little critters.

B. B. Byrd as in Big Bad Byrd? :P
Well, certainly creepy, at least. With that semitransparent skin and all.
randomflyingpigeons mentioned Homer Simpson, and yeah, that head at least fits the bill, and the slight potbelly. :D

Interesting idea, as far as I know also original, and as mentioned, you succeeded with the creepiness.

Kinda reminds me of something from HP Lovecraft. Something to do with a butcher.

I've never seen anywthing like this and I can tell you that it's very creepy. I'd like not to meet any bird-man or bird-whatever in the middle of the street at night. Otherwise, I would run really fast Nuu.
Congratulations on this work. :D

I love the skill put in to this and the blending of anatomy.  I can't help but see this on a demotivational poster meme, though: Anthro: when artists go too far.  ;P

I don't think I've ever seen this done before. It looks great, but creepy - which is good, since that's that you wanted :D
