Weekend Art Challenge – Mythical Creatures

Welcome to our mythical creatures art challenge! We absolutely love this challenge as it allowed our students to let loose on being very creative and building and designing characters from their imagination.

Our featured image this week is by student Catherine Thompson who has envisaged a studio creature who is painting his friend. He is absolutely wonderful and we love the way Catherine has given him a full background and surroundings.

We are also very impressed by Serafine Christine’s dragon burnt on wood and then coloured. It is simply stunning. We love it!

Well done to everyone who took part this week. We are very imprssed and hope that you enjpoy the next challenge coming tomorrow!

Also dont forget to check out the entries to this years art competition on our website! – Competition Entries! Best of luck to all those who entered!

I’ve decided to delve back in to my art studies and what better way than to partake in one of my favourite subjects, mythology?? A Phoenix bird in flight. A biro-pen sketch on a background of watercolour splashes.

Enchanting beings and mythical creatures? I imagine it’s a pity for these artists… Their elusive prize is so darn shy. Is it any wonder he’s reluctant to disrobe?

Weekend Challenge: Enchanted Beings and Mythic Creatures The mythic beast I’ve painted is a Centicore. A deer like creature who’s antlers are deadly weapons. The antlers can swivel around in any direction. I’ve used gel pens too highlighter parts of the painting.

And, it’s a Kitsune, also known as Kyuubi no Kitsune (literally ‘the nine-tailed fox’), is a powerful yokai commonly seen in Japan, China, and Korea. A normal fox is said to be able to turn into one, by gaining a tail each century of living and spiritual training. Records of the nine-tailed fox can be seen first in China.

After a lot of research I came up with this.I used polychromos on kraftpaper.

Here is my first effort for the weekend challenge. I was going to paint the green man – hence all the leaves, but then decided to try to paint a unicorn emerging and yet being part of the forest!

Here’s my next piece of work for the weekend challenge – the three little creatures for inspiration reminded me of the three wise monkeys 🙈🙉🙊 – so I thought I would draw them as such!
