What are Loftwings, you ask?
The Loftwings are a race from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. The citizens of Skyloft use them to fly to different regions in the sky. Loftwings are also an integral part of the Wing Ceremony. Each resident of Skyloft has a Loftwing of their own. The Wing Ceremony (also known as the Bird-rider's Ceremony) is an annual event held on Skyloft for students enrolled in the Knight Academy that consists of a competition and a formal ceremony. In the competition, the participants must mount their Loftwings and chase after a golden loftwing carrying a Bird Statue.The one who claims the statue first will be declared the champion and will take part in the second ceremony.

I am opening this discussion up to the community: what do you want out of this group? It has been quiet here but perhaps you, the members, can tell us what to do next!

:bulletyellow: It was suggested that we feature the best Loftwing art submitted to the group every month, since we do not have the resources to offer contest prizes.
:bulletyellow: It was also suggested that we start up an ongoing RP. This would help jump-start everyone's art inspiration... without new art, we would be unable to do monthly features! Who would be interested in participating?

:star: Come on over to our potential RP chatroom to voice your suggestions:… :star:

One more thing: Loftwings are pretty cool. :iconloftwingplz:

a deviation from the first contest is missing. a few months back i found it and it's not there.

it had back- view loftwings flying to the golden loftwing in the center, and the sun was in the backround....

i think it had to do with " a loftwings point of view."

What I don't quite understand is when I created the Double Fox-Tail Loftwing, It wasn't added to the Loftwing Breed list? It just confuses me, but eh. Doesn't really matter all that much.
