    Hello

    I wanted to share a thing that i am doing here in my free time. Might even turn this into a small book to give out.

    So i decided to illustrate myths and legends from all over the world, taking in unique creatures and beings and giving them faces and bodies.

    I started with pretty mainstream myths, and I actually understood that i am having trouble finding unique creatures, so i asked a couple of friends, they gavered a couple of myths from their countries and reading through those i understood that damn - there are so many interesting and unique ones.

    So i decided to post my project somewhere to gather information from people, maybe you know something unique that you would really like to see illustrated? It might turn out unique. I did a couple of sketches.

    Wow, these are all gorgeous. Well, with the recent ending of 'Lucifer' on Fox I'm thinking a lot about the ancient goddess Asherah the wife/consort of YHWH/El. What would the mother of angels and queen of heaven look like?

    There is also the Irish hero Fionn and his adoptive mothers the druid Bodhmall (his aunt) and a fighting woman/shield maiden, Liath Luachra growing up in the mountain forests of Sliabh Bladhma which I rarely see depicted. I see Greek, Norse and Slavic, although I'm not too sure what Glosson is from? Do you have a preference?

    Thanknyou, Misa. Will deffinetly check those out and sketch a couple of ideas ))) gloson is a swedish legend, i found only a swedish wiki page. If I remember correctly - glosson a demonic pig with iron quils , that would cut you in half. It was supposed to be active during a yearly run challenge of some sort.
