this is just all kinds of beautiful!! I absolutely love the looks on their adorable little faces :heart: and the texture of the scales and fur are just beyond amazing!!! I also really love the anatomy, and the lovely sense of motion from the fur blowing in the wind. not to mention, this shading is beyond incredible! I haven't seen such gorgeous pencilwork in forever, it's just amazing! I love this so super much, same with the other kirin pictures of yours, they're so very beautiful <3

Kirins are called "Asian unicorns", even though they can have more than one horn. The horns can be either straight or forked like a deer's. They are usually depicted with a dragon-like face, scales and a fluffy mane and tail.. OR they can be horse or deer like . www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=&…
 This is why they are one of my favorite mythical creatures ( them and Foo-dogs ) because they can look like almost anything.

Kirins are a mythical Asian creatures, usually depicted with a furry mane, scales, cloven hooves, and a single horn, a forked horn or antlers, or a combination.
Sometimes their face resembles a deer, or a horse or a dragon.
They are also called Ki-rin qui-lin kyrin and other spellings

So cute! They always remind me of the dogs I used to have (they have all died of old age at this point) but basically, if you put a horn on my dogs and replaced some of the fir w/ scales, this would be them. So cute! I love it!'

Ohhh... to go walking in the woods one afternoon, retreating from the blazing summer sun in the shade of cool leaves... and to see these three peering back at me from the cover of tall ferns....
