Have you heard?

The bird is the word!

Bird bird bird, bird is the word.

The title of this means “Become a bird”, and it’s taken from a song by my favorite singer/songwriter, “Rasen (Spiral)” by Chihiro Onitsuka. :slight_smile:

watashi wa tori ni nari
zattou wo tondeyuku
mayoi wa hane ni nari
subete wo furikitteyuku

“I become a bird
and fly over the crowd
My doubt becomes wings
and I shake off the weight of everything”

The Keeper of Crimson Ghosts tends to these lost souls in between the world of the living and the dead.
This design is inspired by several old beliefs that a departed soul appears as a bird.

Thanks in advance for any comments and votes. I hope it came out to your liking!
