Monster and rider together at last!!!
This massive beast is the Osprey that was used as the subject for one of the higher level Painting Pyramid instructional videos.
There are lots of examples of painted Eagles, so I thought this relative could be more interesting, with some very distinct markings.
It plays off the converted rider very well, with the sword arm in just the right position!
As I look at this, I start to realize just how much more in depth the Osprey markings were.
These views give a decent look at the rider, and how the flowing cloak and sword worked out!
A few close ups for you!
