Bahamut by Grishend Bahamut by Grishend
First of all, Merry Christmas to everyone!

According to Arabian mythology, Bahamut actually is a vast fish that supports the earth. In some sources, Bahamut is described as having a head resembling a hippopotamus or elephant. However, modern culture Bahamut, in which it appears as a powerful dragon, is a totally different creature compared to the original mythology. Although the character's name is clearly derived from the mythological Bahamut, the two appear to share no other similarities.

I tried to make my own summon magics, and since Bahamut is one of my favorite summon from the game Final Fantasy and I have tried to make it once, I decided to try with this one as well. However, I think it's still heavily influenced from Final Fantasy VIII's Bahamut.

Programs used:
Adobe Photoshop 7.0

was lacking of much sleep when I posted that other pic, this is realy awesome, though something like what I suggested(read:requested*eyeroll*) would be pretty epic.

plain pose is plain, no eccitement, just bahamut flying realy high, needs more lightning, thunder, !!!ROARING!!! .
add some variety, some tribute to his awesome power and/or infinate wisdom! this is no tribute, this is a snapshot!

taking this on is optional, of course, I demand nothing, I just think it could be better, is all, and hope it becomes better.:)
