The Reborn by xelar
This whole image is based on the Quetzal, a bird from Middle America with bluish green feathers and long tail feathers that has become very rare in the past decades. The Quetzal is a symbol for freedom because it can't be held in captivity and for extravagance because high priests of the Aztec wore its feathers as headdresses.
The person in the middle is bald since she/he represents a newborn.
This image will be published in an upcoming issue of ImagineFX along with some of my older works
As always I used Photoshop and Painter.
Here are some close-ups
