NirVanA Bestiary: 03 by thelivingmachine02 NirVanA Bestiary: 03 by thelivingmachine02
i think i'm gonna take a break from the bestiary soon, but for now two more! whoooooooo...
----------
the Roc:
originally from Arabian mythology... it is an enormous bird of prey; able to lift giant animals and carry then to it's nest where it devours them... legendary, powerful and deadly... in NirVanA, it terrorizes a nearby city by it's nest... it also has the ability to understand human speech in all languages... it only appears in the first installment, but it's hatch lings invade the same city in the second...
the Yuki-onna:
a spirit in japanese folklore... she is a tall, beautiful woman who appears in snowy nights... although she may seem innocent, she is a ruthless killer; more or less like a succubus in which it steals the victim's life force... she is basically the same in NirVanA, but instead is the great grandmother of evangeline who died in a snowstorm... she appears in the first and second installment, while protecting her great granddaughter...
----------

Neeevar shall I thank you since YOU were the one who was going to make me search! D: ... Or... was going to make me want me to search... what ever <<''

The horns fit it fine in my opiniion, I know I definitaly wouldn't want to see one out in the open.

I've heard stories about the yuki-onna before...I like the way you did her hair and clothes. At the bottom...kinda creeps me out. Stubby, bloody...end? Not really feet...you know what I mean ^^;

The roc's eye came out pretty cool too.

yeah... there are many stories of the yuki-onna... her appearance changes through time... in some, she's naked, in others she's holding a child and sometimes she's pregnant... i just chose the one i liked... well, some stories also have her bottom part of the kimono to be stained with blood... and seeing as she's kinda like a succubus, it fit... she also doesn't leave any footprints, so i drew her without any visible feet... uhh, so long... anyhoo, thanks a lot!
