Windlord by KuroCyou Windlord by KuroCyou

This is one of the last paintings I did for school, this time we were more free in the choice of the subject and its interpretation. I then choose to draw Gwaihir, the King of the Eagles of Manwe, in a tribute to LoTR but also to an amazing fanfiction I read a while ago!
I've got the exam in a few days, hopefully I'll be able to work n more personal pieces later and explore further the wonders of traditional art xD

I didn't know it °^° I thought the Eagle was an American symbol xD but maybe this is the golden eagle so it's different..?
