If you want to create a new and recognisable race you should start with the name. Many people tend to rate a fantasy race just by the name, which gets even harder if the name or description of a race sounds similar to any stereotypically fantasy race.

 

The (arguable) "new" race in my game is called Gnoblins, a mix of Gnome and Goblins, is always recognised as a 'lame try to rename Goblins to Gnoblins', nobody will ever read the part where you explain, that these are not goblins at all..

 

PS: nice art work
