The reason why I Drew so many chinese mythological mountain dwellers is mainly because there are very few pictures of them. Let me explain. I said earlier that I make mythology scrap books for my friends, in each I put one creature per alphabetical letter. In each scrapbook, there are 18 color photocopies of pictures (taken from the net or books), 3 black-and-white photocopies and five self-made drawings. And the ones I tend to draw the most often are the ones where there are very few pictures of the creature. And the chinese legendary mountain-dwelling creatures, well, are hardly ever represented...

OK. Photobucket still has problems, but I managed to upload a few more drawings. Here are two of them.

The first one is a Lou Carcohl. The Lou Carcohl comes from french folklore. It is a gigantic animal that is half snail, half snake, donning a big shell. Living underground, it has a toothless mouth surrounded by tentacles that can stretch many times their length to capture preys (humans are among their preys).

The second one is Fa. Fa is from the mythology of the people in Dahomey, in Africa. Fa is an oracle who has sixteen eyes, with which he sees everything. However, it is said that, when humans contact Fa, he never opens more than two eyes at once. Why? Because he only tells people what they need to know and (more important), what they are emotionnally ready to accept. He has sixteen keys that open the sixteen doors of the celestial temple of future.

I am glad you could upload some more pictures. More than praising your talent, I want to tell you that I learn a lot with your entries. The Low carcolh is incredibly interesting. Something really immaginative and different from what we are used. The Portuguese word for a snail is caracol, very similar to carcolh actually. Strange that the French name is not similar? scratch
