I’m really proud of this drawing which I drew in less than 30 minutes, all just from imagination! No reference at all! And it does look like the phoenix/dinosaur hybrid I wanted it to be! (:

It’s blue because I like the colour BLUE! Actually, my scanner died. 😦

Take.Flight was meant to be a major papercut, but I realised that the design was not suitable due to its negative/positive spaces. (Designs within the pheonix could not be seen) So here it is, the inked version of Take.Flight. Enjoy! (:

A colour pencil drawing of a Griffin from Greek Mythology. It has the head, front limbs and wings of an eagle but the body and tail of a lion. (Plus large mammalian ears)

I had to take this using a camera because my scanner gave way. It also looks extra grainy because I did it on watercolour paper and now I’m regretting I did that. ):

From my Sketchbook:

Dragon's Head“I am deeply fascinated by the human creativity in creating fiction and fantasy. Mythology and Legends are exemplary examples of the human creativity that had outlasted the erosion of time. However, these fantastic creatures and tales are gravely endangered by rapid modernisation and scientific eradication. Humans lose their gift of imagination slowly to maturity as they age, although somehow we are still fascinated by stories of mythical creatures and mysterious beings. There is an undeniable attraction within this conceived world that inspires us and allows us to detach ourselves from reality. I wish to encompass this magic into my artwork . I aim to create this fantasy through visual art, and spark the imaginative child in others.”
