Blood Eagle by Hydrothrax Blood Eagle by Hydrothrax
A bit too much viking metal? MAYBE.

Something I've had in my head for a looong time and has a WIP version sitting around for ages. Finally I have a little time for my own stuff again :D

Also yeah, I have a weird way of showing appreciation for my favorite things, hah! The SU-47 is an old favorite of mine. 


PS: No, my biomechs are not organic on the inside. This is just for funsies :D

I had MEANT to state this comment on a different pic showing the gruesome torture-death of Blood-Eagle, but since i first saw the pic, hundreds of pics have been added -incl. a dragged-out comic called "Don't starve". I was unable thus to find the pic, so I post it here, as it has the same mutilation.

The story of the gruesome inhuman torture-mutilation-execution is all based on the crude art of the vikings and possibly mistranslated sagas. No authenticated accounts of victims exist. king Aella of Northrumbria was said to have executed this way, for his murder of Ragnar Lodbrog,legendary king of Sweden. BUT that story was not written until over a century after Aella's death in battle.

Not a problem - I've heard as well that many of the torture methods etc of the vikings were grossly exaggerated, even more so now thanks to popular media. (I just like that silly song haha. And it's a play on words, since this particular jet's name in Russian means "golden eagle.")

So what perpetuated that myth? Just from that first story written well after Aella's death? I find this interesting, more so since it's not my area of expertise. :)

Is that the anatomy of a biomech, in any way?
