Description:
A dragon is usually represented as breathing fire & having a reptilian body & sometimes wings that feature in the myths of many cultures. I wanted to create a dragon that distinguishes itself from the snake-like beast in myths. I gave my dragon heavy fore & hind legs to achieve this.

Description:
A unicorn (from Latin unus 'one' & cornu 'horn') is a mythological creature. Though the modern popular image of the unicorn is sometimes that of a horse differing only in the horn on its forehead, the traditional unicorn also has a billy-goat beard, a lion's tail & cloven hooves—these distinguish it from a horse.

By far, this is the most difficult project I ever covered! It's probably because I'm such a Jesus fan that I got overly conscious & tried too hard to make everything perfect...

I leafed through my old sketches & found one of the centaur, Chiron (tutor of great warriors; Achiles, to name one). I did well to keep my sektches! Sketches = Ideas. Never throw ideas away! So, I said to myself, "let's make a new centaur - The Centaur King!"

This giant mole is such a useful companion for a treasure hunter, don't you think? He seems to be more than just a working animal, though - notice his plump cheeks & his bright eyes. Looks more like a pet to me! We all know that the mole is the most effective burrower (& miner) there is! I bet he's found many a trunk full of treasure for his lady a thousand times!

This character doesn't feel any remorse despite the fact that he's just been kicked out of Michael's crowd. Look what's happened to him - he's lost one of his wings & he's sprouted horns! Well, they didn't do anything to ruin his good looks, did they?
