The Qilin by soulofwinter The Qilin by soulofwinter
Remember the Qilin sketches from before? Well, now he's all fleshed out! This creature is called the Qilin (a.k.a. Kirin, Kylin, etc., it has quite a few spellings and visual interpretations). Thanks to Don Riley for the wonderful photograph!

Edit: My first daily deviation? How exciting! :D Thank you so much to ^LabyrinthCreations for the feature!

question: from where u got that translucent plastic/glass stick that holds the creature up?
Reply
:iconsoulofwinter:
soulofwinter Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2011  Professional Artist
Thank you! The ones that I found were at a small art/hobby store, (I think in the section for airplane models). Also, I'm fairly sure you can get them at plastic specialty stores, the plastic specialty store I usually go to, Plasticare, definitely has them. They'll probably have a wider size selection too. :)
