Aigis Picture

I've always adored big birds. Beside owls, eagles ar my second favourites.
I saw a sea eagle soaring through the sky once, I think it was last year. I decited I should try and draw one of these majestic birds. <3

Then I remembered Kokko's from finnish mythology. Kokko is a massive eagle, big enough to carry people around. And they are also able to strike fire. Kokko appears in the Kalevala book which is a Finlands national epic.

While working with this drawing, I became attached to the character. I named her Aigis, (in english Aegis) And she has now joined my band of original characters. c: She is friendly and loyal, but her trust is hard to gain. She can also be fierce when provoked.
