6 THE ART OF SINBAD - roc design sheet


The Roc “What is a Roc? The Roc (also spelt “Rukh”, “Rokh”, or Ruc) is a huge, mythical bird best known for its ability to pick up and feed on baby elephants. Legend has it that this monstrous creature would also pick up and feed on humans; it would often rip its prey apart and take it back to its nest to feed its young. Although the Roc is well known for its tendency to cause terror, many believe that it acted as a protector to a vast secret valley filled with treasure. Origin The legend of the Roc (the name having derived from the Spanish words “rocho” and “ruc”) has been present in the mythology of a variety of different cultures, but has been rumored to have originated in Asia in around 39 AD, specifically in and around India. Historians believe its origin to be in this general area due to the discovery of ancient Indian Sanskrit epics that referenced what was said to be a giant bird, large enough to pick up elephants. Appearance The Roc is described as being very similar to an eagle in overall appearance, except much larger and stronger. The Roc is classified in the species, “Avian”, and has a shocking 48-foot wingspan. The weight of the bird is unknown, but many historians believe it to have been significantly heavier than its prey (this included large land mammals, primarily elephants). The Roc is usually described as having coloring similar to that of an eagle, primarily brown with hints of color, and a long, thin and forked tongue muck like that of a snake. It is said to have had very sharp and pointy teeth as well, spanning across the lining of its humongous beak.”

Scale and movement

Scale and movement Wings are too big to keep them in normal way, they help to balance in ground, specialy walking.

Skull Heavy and strong, as all the mythical bird is. Muscles are strong too they need to maintain the heavy bones and structure. However the bone is heavy it has a lot of space in it making the whole a bit more easy.

BIOGRAPHY “The goddess who calls forth war and discord. According to the Iliad, she wanders about, at first small and insignificant, but she soon raises her head up to heaven (4.441). She is the friend and sister of Ares, and with him she delights in the tumult of war, increasing the moaning of men. (4.445, 5.518, 20.48.) She is insatiable in her desire for bloodshed, and after all the other gods have withdrawn from the battle-field, she still remains rejoicing over the havoc that has been made. (5.518, 11.3, &c., 73.) According to Hesiod (Hes. Th. 225, &c.), she was a daughter of Night, and the poet describes her as the mother of a variety of allegorical beings, which are the causes or representatives of man’s misfortunes.” William Smith. A Dictionary of Greek and Roman

He is not to be confused with Sindbad the Wise, hero of the frame story of the Seven Wise Masters. The stories of Sindbad’s travails, which were a relatively late addition to The Thousand and One Nights, were based on the experiences of merchants from Basra (Iraq) trading under great risk with the East Indies and China, probably in the early ʿAbbāsid period (750–c. 850). A strong infusion of the miraculous in the stories has exaggerated the dangers encountered. William Smith. A Dictionary of Greek and Roman
