Sketchbook Friday: Corbin, Hook Horror

The humanoid birds called the corbin live underground, hunting in the dark. Their sharp claws and strong arms are their weapons, and they are known for their terrifying cries that sound eerily as if they are screaming "Doom! Doom!" Rumors among adventurers is that they seem to have become more numerous of late, and seem to be more intelligent in their tactics, as if guided by some other hand....

The larger cousins of the corbin have evolved to single hooked appendages,  hunting quietly in the dark. Their keen hearing makes them hard to surprise, while they tend to work together in packs to drive their prey into ambushes or dead end tunnels or caves.
