Oooh. I knew the Thunderbird existed in Native American culture, but I always thought of it as just a face sitting on top of the totem pole, with the legend of it being a big bird. .
Didn't read this -> "Across many North American indigenous cultures, the thunderbird carries many of the same characteristics. It is described as a large bird, capable of creating storms and thundering while it flies. Clouds are pulled together by its wingbeats, the sound of thunder made by its wings clapping, sheet lightning the light flashing from its eyes when it blinks, and individual lightning bolts made by the glowing snakes that it carries around with it. In masks, it is depicted as multi-colored, with two curling horns, and, often, teeth within its beak."
For the picture you modified, can I see the picture un-modified to see what you did to it? Lol xD
I think I've seen that picture somewhere though. I think you added the shine to the eye, and the red energy on the hands. . .. correct me if I'm wrong. =.=
