Drawing Beasts!!

Fresh off the press.. Artwork by AD..

These ones are based on Mythical Beasts from Egyptian, Chinese and Greek Mythology..

I also used phrases from each region I felt fitted well, also researched the translation for each country.. It's been a good learning curve working alongside a Doctor of Egyptology on the Ammit and Greek and Chinese friends on the other 2. So the hieroglyphs are on point!!

Hard to tell in the pic below but the middle one is gold print (Gold and blue being Royal colours in Egypt)

Here's a breakdown on each...

Egyptian.. The Ammit..


Demoness and goddess in ancient Egyptian religion with a body that was part lion, hippopotamus and crocodile—the three largest "man-eating" animals known to ancient Egyptians.

The writing reads..

Do not be proud just because of your knowledge; instead, consult with the one who hasn't learnt as well as the one who has.

The limits of art cannot be attained; there is no artist whose skill is fully formed.


Greek.. The Griffin..


Mythological creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle; and an eagle's talons as its front feet.

The writing reads:

Every child is an artist..The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up..


Chinese.. The Lóngguī


A legendary Chinese creature that combines two of the four celestial animals of Chinese mythology: the body of a turtle with a dragon is promoted as a positive ornament in Feng Shui, symbolising courage, determination, fertility, longevity, power, success, and support.

The writing reads:

The one whom says it cannot be done should not interrupt the one doing it..


Also it'd be wrong to bring wood out with out an edit...
