The Ziz (Hebrewזיז) is a giant griffin-like bird in Jewish mythology, said to be large enough to be able to block out the sun with its wingspan. It is considered a giant animal/monster corresponding to archetypal creatures. 
The Ziz is as monstrous of size as Leviathan himself. His ankles rest on the earth, and his head reaches to the very sky.

Was told to draw Ziz and so t’was done. Description from Wikipedia.


Mythology/Folklore: Alkonost
The Alkonost is, according to Russian mythology and folklore, a creature with the body of a bird but the head of a beautiful woman. They make sounds that are amazingly beautiful, and those who hear these sounds forget everything they know and want nothing more ever again. 
She lives in the underworld, but the Alkonost will lay her eggs on a beach and then roll them into the sea. When the eggs hatch, a thunderstorm sets and the sea becomes unmanageable.
