Angka: A fabulous bird in the folklore of the Middle East described as having a human face and resembling a Griffin or Simurgh. It was said to inhabit the Kaf Mountains, where it devoured anything living it came across. It was so successful that it hunted everything to extinction, resulting in it's own demise.

Here's a crazy job I just had. Doing a poster for the live action Disney movie "Invincible" starring Mark Wahlburg... (here's the good part) for a Korean Airline's Inflight Magazine. I know it doesn't look like Mark Wahlburg, but they said they didn't care. It's based more on the guy the film was made about named Vince Papale, he's way more fun to draw. I'm sure if Disney had any idea how their film was being marketed they'd have a fuckin' heart attack.
