Golden Eagle as Totem

I'm going through a massive 30 Rock Season 1 binge in celebration for Season 3 airing. Lol. It's been motivational.

Yup. I'm weird.

This would have to be one of my favourites from you! I love the colours in it, especially the highlights on the back of the eagle's head - it seems to reflect the yellow of the background. Nice details in the feathers, too. =)

Dude, is it just me, or does she look smug? (And I'm definitely getting a "she" vibe--I always do from goldies.) Something about that expression just screams, "Just try and jess me today. Try it. I DARE YOU!" Or, perhaps, "Did you SEE that jack rabbit? Oh. Yeah. Totally mine. Muah-hah!"

...I might be weird >.>

I was so going to ask you to do this the next time you had a request list open!

It's beautiful, almost exactly how I pictured you would draw it. I love these birds.

This may sound a bit "out there", but have you heard of any sort of connection between this golden eagle and Norse runes?
Reply
:iconravenari:
Ravenari Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2008  Professional Traditional Artist
Not reaaally, no. Sorry! I do a lot of rune work as well. It wouldn't surprise me though if all eagle energy is connected to Sol / Sowelu.

Ok then...I can't remember if it was that particular rune that it appeared, but that's why I asked. When I first made my runes (4 yrs ago) and did all that "putting in your energy" stuff this one book said to do, suddenly a golden eagle appeared before me and I rode on it's back over the mountains. What was funny is that I never saw that bird before, and didn't even know what species it was at the time. However it remains one of my most vivid visions yet (actually it might have been more than that since it felt so real) and I've been curious about the why's.

Anyways...I like eagles...They're the symbol of pride (sometimes)

And of course...I love all of your works ;P

I think eagles symbolise an element of pride too.
Which makes up for the fact that comparatively speaking, they're pretty dumb birds!
