Qilin - PD Contest - Breath of life by Yokufo Qilin - PD Contest - Breath of life by Yokufo
Image with close up's:






The Qilin / Kirin (Chinese: 麒麟; pinyin: qílín; Wade–Giles: ch'i-lin) is a mythical hooved Chinese chimerical creature known throughout various East Asian cultures. It is said to appear with the imminent arrival or passing of a wise sage or an illustrious ruler. It is a good omen that brings serenity and fortune.




This is my entry for the Phoenix Dream "Creature contest".
I though it was definitely a nice challenge in portraying creatures I have never drawn before :')
For those who are interested, check it out! It's a very friendly group and I think this contest might be exciting for some of you! Besides the prizes are really nice as well! *smiles*

Beautiful depiction of the qílín. This is exactly as I would imagine them, but I am too unskilled at or impatient with computer stuff to do myself.

this just took my breath away~
I've never seen a kirin like this, it's body is almost like flowing water, and the crystal-like glow emanating from it's body gives the picture such a celestial feel. The lighting and effects are gorgeous, and I am just blown away by how beautiful it is~ 
I wish I could figure more to say, but I'm rather speechless at the moment
