Alphyn Shirt by Zene-Tyler Alphyn Shirt by Zene-Tyler
This took all of the time, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!

Please consider voting!

ETA: Aaaaand it occurs to me I probably should've explained just what the hell this is. It's an alphyn, a creature used in heraldry that's said to have the front limbs of an eagle (or a dragon, but if you know how I draw dragons...), a long tail with a knot in it, and a mane (and other tufts of longer hair here and there). It also has a weird tongue, but obviously that isn't shown. I made it a bit more wolflike than my references because apparently the name comes from a word for wolf. And...that's about all I can think of to say. I just love them. :heart:

Badass man! Suiting color combo that makes it creepy and dominating at the same time.
Looked and voted!
Good luck in the contest!

If you have a bit of time, could you give me some advice on my designs? [link]

Ho that's cool (and an original creature choice also ^_^)

I vote for! I really love the "night" effect playing with the black background.

Good luck with your Alphyn!!!!
