Dapple Kirin by creaturesfromel Dapple Kirin by creaturesfromel
A Japanese Kirin (Qilin). I went for a distinctly more equine look for this one complete with my favourite horsey colouring, dapple. I will definitely make more Kirin in the future since the mythology is so flexible, I see it looking many different ways.

This piece is already sold. If you are interested in what I have for sale or a custom order check out my etsy shop

Aw, nostalgia. I had a little rock in my backyard that I used to draw Kirin and Tanuki playing together with chalk.

Kirin and unicorn are different creatures. The latter comes from the Western fantasy.

This is stunning. I could spend hours looking at this, at the way the different animal parts merge into one-another. It's interesting seeing a qilin more equine than draconic.
