Is it bad that I like the Nytes right now more??

First I'll start with things I like about the new revamp, I really like the new details on the feathers, talons, tails and other parts so good job Krinadon! There's clearly a huge improvement from the Nytes now(in certain aspects). Another thing I love and appreciate so much is that you actually listen to what the players think. So, THANK YOU! But now for the critiques. . .(No harm intended, my tone may sound really salty and mean but it's just because this is my favorite species and I would just LOVE for them to have the best revamp possible!)

*all my critiques are on adult forms only*
I don't really understand the super fluffy heads it makes them look so chubby and cutesy which isn't what I wanted with this revamp. They're supposed to be hunters that lurk in the shadows, not some cotten ball faced no neck whatever they are. The female has no neck whatsoever and it's very hard to look at. Another thing is although the wings are more accurate now than before, they're still too big and weird because of some extra feathers were added but the anatomy is wrong, I'll explain this with pictures below.

Below is a picture of a bird wing, the basic structure is some big feathers at the end half and then shorter features on the half near the body, unlike the sketches that show the feathers remaining big throughout the whole wing, giving it a really unproportional look.

Here's how it should fold:

I honestly wish they looked a bit more like this:

and this:

Now time for my redoodle of the Nytes(WIP)

I really like how you made the childrens look more fluffy, but I think that the feathers on the back legs on the adults look sort of wierd.
Thank you for taking the time to read my comment.

My one suggestion, which might fix the too cutesy critique some have about the adults, is maybe change the design of the males beak so it looks like hes in mid-screech (assuming owls do that, of course). That would allow you to give the female a more fierce expression, which, IMO, she should have anyway, as it fits better with the way shes holding up one of her front feet/hands. Ill illustrate what I mean later.

As for the hatchlings? No complaints/critiques about them.They look good to me (and very, VERY cute 8) ) :).

I think what you are all forgetting is that this site is for fantasy creatures not real ones, while everyone seems to be pointing out how real animals are this might not be the feel that the artists were looking for.

I think whatever is decided will be great.

true but comparing too real animals can make them look less akward
