Maikel Vengeful-wind, THE Etherean hero of older times. Lots of legend surrounds him, mostly that the blessing of the Highest was upon him in the form of the eagle that never left him, and that during the wars he become the living incarnation of Vailanue, the True Angel. Of all the characters I've designed, he might be the coolest to me. This picture is a favorite of mine for a lot of reasons, one of them being the way the eagle turned out. I was afraid after I finished Maikel that I'd ruin the whole thing by doing a poor job on the bird. But I was very satisfied after I completed it.
