From Script to Screen: Tibetan Bird Concept Designs

4 Birds from Tibet and Bhutan

Here are some drawings using photo references of different birds from Tibet and Bhutan, the areas where Yeti's originated from, going clockwise from the top left the breeds of these birds are, the Sapphire Flycatcher, the Long Tailed Minivet, the Chestnut-bellied Rock Thrush and the Red-Billed Leiothrix. I want to go for either the Minivet or the Thrush due to the redness of their bodies being able to stand out against the cold blues of the castle interior, and because the bird is so small I didn't want it to blend in with the backgrounds in wide shots.
Upon receiving feedback I will start to incorporate the bird into the same style as the yetis. 


  1. Out of all of them I like the Chestnut-bellied Rock Thrush, mostly because the black would stand out against the white/blue snow and outline the bird while the red is very eye catching :)

  2. I mean the Long Tailed Minivet, sorry ^_^
