If you Could Swing a Sword With Your Feet, What Would It Look Like?




This week's Mythological Mayhem project (or maybe last week's) is the Turul. Basically it's a Mongolian hawk that swings a flaming sword and impregnates women in their dreams. So my instinct is to immediately anthropomorphize it, functioning similarly to a man with all the necessary uh, equipment. So if this bird swung a giant sword with it's powerful talons, how would it do it? I've recently been inspired by Joy Ang's work again, how easily she switches from smooth stylization to sharp realism. thus I'll be switching gears to better articulate a similar style. Also the giant fantasy sword definitely comes courtesy of Paul Richards. I just couldn't resist.
