Alphabeast: S is for Salamander

Fire Elemental!

I haven't posted any of my Alphabeasts here on the blog since I is for Imp. So if you've missed J-R, check 'em out at the Alphabests Tumblr page.


Alphabeasts: C is for Cacus

Cacus is a fire-breathing giant (son of Vulcan) who met his end at the hands of Hercules. Above is my take on him. Before coloring him up in Photoshop, can you guess (from the images below) how I inked it: brush, dip pen, or digitally? I drew it at first with the border all around in case I decide later to keep it, but originally envisioned the drawing opening up and blowing out the border with fire. Alphabeasts is a 26-week project, a blog where artists of all types and stripes contribute a mythical creature or beasty any old way that suits them, as long as it's a new drawing or sketch of a creature whose name begins with the letter for that week. Check out A-C creatures by an amazing array of artists at the Alphabeasts archive, and be sure to check in every Monday.
