Lightning Bird by evalesco5 Lightning Bird by evalesco5
This was pretty fun to draw...I've never drawn lightning before, but I like how it turned out :)
A second part to my fantasy creatures 'series', this time of the lightning/thunder bird, which I did for a contest at :iconmythsandlegends:
This is their description of the creature:

LIGHTNING BIRD
The Lightning bird or Impundulu, is a mythological creature in the folklore of the tribes of South Africa. This creature takes the form of a black and white bird, the size of a human, which is said to summon thunder and lightning with its wings and talons. It is a vampiric creature with an insatiable appetite for blood. Associated with witchcraft the Impundula was often the servant or familiar of a witch or witch doctor, attacking the witch's enemies. It is said to sometimes take the form of a beautiful young man and seduce women.
