Vogel Rok Picture

'Vogel Rok' or 'Vogel Roc' is dutch for Bird Roc, which is the name of a mythological giant bird that appears in the arabian 1001 nights tales togheter with Sinbad.

As the myth tells, Vogel Rok has been seen near by Madagaskar by Persians and Arabians.
It appears the bird was enormous. He fed his youngsters with elephants and his wings could cover the sun.

This is my version of Vogel Rok, but it's slightly based on the one in amusementpark 'De Efteling' in Holand! In there, Vogel Rok is a indoor Rollercoaster with onride music and it is EPIC!

I was listening to the music of this ride while drawing this:
