Radial-Eye Dove. by V4m2c4 Radial-Eye Dove. by V4m2c4
Social, flocking creatures Radial-eye doves embark on long, dangerous mating migrations. Their flight is linked to the migration of the red pronged sprite, which migrate in the millions. If immigration is incorrectly embarked, the Radial-eye dove risks missing their sole food source throughout its flight, which can spell an imminent demise. Their large yellow radial eye gives them a nearly 360 degree panoramic view of their environment. Yet they can bring focus to specific areas of the band for a precise view. Their large blue nostrils help pick up the slightest of scents which aid in night flights. Many will perish the flight due to predation, exhaustion, malnutrition etc. yet those who reach the breeding grounds will mate and brood a nest of 3.

Awesome concept, awesome colours, Im convinced, great work!
Do they have two kinds of mouth? Or is the upper part the nose?
I read the description but Im still a tiny little unsure about that ^^'

thank you!
yup, the blue part, above the beak, is the nose. in the picture the "bird's" mouth is open ready to catch the insect.

Wow! Really intriguing! It's amazing how you work with common-looking structures (beak, wings) but you integrate them into the creature in such a way that it looks really alien. This creature really looks like something out of this world.
I also love your choice of colors =)
