anyone but me. honestly, the only pictures I can paint are ones done with words, where the lines and colors are created in the mind of the reader, guided by the letters forming into a descriptive word which no 2 people can see the same way in their minds.

Ive always loved and still love this pic though find a proper watermark editor one that puts the watermark in the file not the image (i thinks thats how it works)

Looks like it was stolen?
Anywho I'll just copy paste what I wrote there.

Fantastic work on the pose. Also loving the saturated colors, gives it an ancient feel somehow.

i like it, but it looks more dragon than horse.

i read that they are more like a dragon mixed with a horse with one horn. or a unicorn with the horn pointing up.

the description, just like tat for the unicorn is really flambouiant.

the body of a dear, tail of and ox, hoves of a horse, head of a lion and scales all over

I like 'em more deer-ish myself but your version is lovely. they're one of my favorite mythical creatures.
I love the pose and coloring, her face is beautiful. :)

thank you. yes well technically they were based on deer, lions and girafes, the later more apparent (in their language anyhow) today. I dunno they aren't unicorns that's fer damn sure. they're ethereal areali spirits.

Yeah...I never saw too much giraffe-ish ones, just deer-ish ones. And they're kind of like an eastern unicorn...only I like their draconic features one helluva lot...very fun.

ThunderBearStudios Featured By Owner Oct 10, 2007
um.. not o mater what anyone says.. tchnically if translation doesn't fail me today, it isn't unicorn and they acually look notihn like them since, kiin/kilin/qirin have two horns (mindmyou giraffes have two visible and a nodoule stickin from thier forehead, which on eatern draongs the atribute to where they store their ability to fily along with all of their wisdom. though unfortunately yes, there are only ethereal air beings/spirits)

Yup. :3
but many people have attached the term of eastern unicorn to them. They aren't supposed to be like that but that's what the western hemisphere sees when they look at them I guess.

Also, I checked out a book from the highschool library...I don't remember the author right now...and the book's a collection of medieval japanese tales?
It's called, nothing but this; Japanese Tales. made me laugh...some of the stories are pretty funny. ;)
Anyhow, I dunno if you've read it yet but it's very nice if you're into short story collections like I am. :)

thanks a bunch you know they wren't unicorns like peoples say. They're really dragon like areal beings kinda like spirits actually, only the turn into physical manifestations of air! Also tried adding in a bit of girrafee since that what the japanese see the kirin as now these days.. but i think the real kirins are still hidin somewheres in this great earth! ^.^

well in jappan and china, girafes are what they now call kirins, prolly because of the long neck and horns (it actually has three not two two a prominent and one is actually a little knob coming from the forehead.. that's why i tried to mix in the giraffe as well lol
