Vast are the terrors of the tides
But so are those of the sky
Once spotted, there's nowhere to hide
Nor can your ear endure their shrill cry

do you happen to have a thunderbird image genzoman?
My favorite mythical creature/animal of all. I would've imagined a giant turkey vulture or a bearded vulture about twice the size, but you still did a very great job. Finally, someone understands how great Rocs are.

Mentalmente siempre visualizaba al Roc mas como un condor, no se por que.
Aca parece un aguila, o un halcon. Igual queda muy bien asi tambien, si hay que ser honestos.
