This is one of my final Our project is to paint a book or a painting of a pre-existing subject. I chose the qiong qi from Shan hai jing（Classic of Mountains and Rivers）
Our teacher asked us not to draw as it originally did. Because what I chose is creatures from ancient Chinese legends. The qiong qi is described as a tiger with wings and a vicious, evil creature that likes to hurt good people. I added the teeth of a saber-toothed tiger and the spines of a reptile to make the qiong qi more like a evil fantasy creature.
My teacher was very happy with this project, she thought the red background was very accentuating the detailed lines in black and white. And the creature is very creative. she gave me good marks
