Kirin by kattything Kirin by kattything
A kirin... or what I imagine one would look like. :) I had no idea what a kirin even was until about a week ago, when I got a bottle of beer with one on the label! Pencils + Photoshop.

A ki'Rin is the Eastern/Asian version of a unicorn. Instead of being based on a horse, it's based on a goat. Goats were the original inspiration for Unicorns, as sometimes their two horns grow twisted together and become "one" horn. Some people draw Ki'Rin based on deer or other hooved animals, but goats were the original.

I never saw that beer..
But your colouring on this is impeccable! And its so gorgeous and rainbow! :love: And i'm loving your new take on the head. If I draw them I make the head like a chinese dragon. But yours works better.
Wish beer could inspire me this much!!

I came in here planning to ask if it was awkward that I only knew of this creature because of the beer, and then I read your description. :giggle:

Ah yes, Kirin Beer. Excellent incentive to draw kirins at any time.

The colors on this are great. It looks like the essence of a sunset or something like that, with all the warm yet dark and purply colors. I think the white feathers at its feet are my favorite part. Very cool.

Kirins are the sexiest horses alive, because they have a little bit of dragon in 'em. :)
