Flame Kirin:火麒麟


火麒麟 1.1版本

中國神獸系列之一.


底下麒麟的解釋從Wiki轉載:

麒麟是中國古代神話傳說中的神獸,據說能活兩千年。雄的名麟,雌的名麒,合稱麒麟。性情溫和,不傷人畜,不踐踏花草,故稱為仁獸。

麒麟的形似馬,狀比鹿,尾似牛尾。麒有獨角,麟無角,口能吐火,聲音如雷。中國古代用麒麟象徵祥瑞。相傳只在太平盛世,或世有聖人時此獸才會出現,亦作騏驎。

Flame Kirin:

Kirin is a mythical beast in Chinese culture.
The creature is supposed to be more like horse or deer body with scales and more than two horns but I want it to be more aggressive so I change the body type to be more strong with claw.
It also says the tail is more like bull's tail and can blow fire from the mouth.

this is an awesome pic, I had to do a report on one of these for a class I took a couple semesters ago and I wish i would have found this image then to show the class. I think it is pretty close to what know of the Kirin except for the what you changed, winch i think only adds to the image.
