The Great Hornbill Character Sketches

So I noticed tonight that our Hornbill character was just kind of a...well, bird-ish. Boring, stiff and had no personality. The design was cool, but there was nothing more to it. So here are a few sketches where I tried to have the Hornbill's personality show through a bit more.
She very much contrasts Monkey. The Hornbill is an elegant high class lady of the tallest tree branches. She's a bit snooty, but always proper. Proud and confident her gift will win baby man's approval.

Whoa. Loving these. The first one has so much snoot in it. Great way to push the design.
