"Vaka vanha Väinämöinen käänti päätä päivän alta,
luopi silmät luotehesen, katsoi taaksensa vähäisen:
jo tulevi Pohjan eukko, lintu kumma liitelevi,
harte'ista kuin havukka, vaakalintu vartalolta!
Yllättävi Väinämöisen. Lenti purjepuun nenähän,
vaatevarpahan rapasi, päähän pielen seisotaikse:
oli pursi päin pu'ota, laiva laioin kallistua."
"Old steady Väinämöinen turned his head to see,
laid his eyes towards northwest, looked behind him a bit:
already arriving the Pohja's hag, bird weird gliding,
shoulders like a kestrel, fierce figure!
Surprised Väinämöinen. It flew to the top of the mast,
grabbed it with its claws, to stay there:
was the mast almost to fall, ship to list."
A part of the Sampo being destroyed in Kalevala! My translation isn't supposed to be all poetry, but more like a very rough one to give the picture how the words go in Finnish. There might be mistakes! [link]
With the Transformers Prime's season three being called "Beast Hunters", I thought this was a very nice fairytale to pick for
March 2013 contest. And.. I guess I was hit by an art furore and a hurry (to submit before actually seeing anything of it yet!). The characters I picked is just one of my interpretations what's going to happen, especially who's the big shot, aka Prime, wielding the Star Saber. Heh. We'll see!
All crazy stuff I art.. Ugh! It was nice to actually draw new things, like Bulk and Jacky, added with a space ship and a space dragon!!
