"Eouen was a terror bird in her first life." photoshop.
A bunch of people were really excited by the last sentence of the most recent worldbuilding post, so I finally took a crack at Eouen’s design.  She was originally some sort of colossal leucistic terror bird who was remade into a sun god.
Looking around at reference images of terror birds, it was weird to see a lot of reconstructions based on modern large flightless birds (ratites) instead of their closest living relatives (seriemas).  Then again, I’m not in any way a scientist or scientific illustrator!  Anyway, I went for a more elegant streamlined body shape and specialized feathers closer to seriemas with a coloration based on secretary birds.  Because it’s fantasy and I get to do what I like!
