Qilin by Psythiros Qilin by Psythiros
Sorry. I wasn't sure whether to put this under traditional or digital. The Qilin itself is traditional. Everything else is digital.
This is a Qilin, the Chinese unicorn. There is a lot of debate over what the creature should look like. According to Chinese mythology, it should have the head of a dragon and the body of a tiger. I have read a variety of descriptions, and decided that I would take from each.
Here is my Qilin. I colored it in Copic markers and digitally edited the image.

Thank you. I have struggled with this concept for quite some time. I finally got the creature on paper. I like the sleek body design. Not too proportioned but I still like it. I love the horn and mane too. :)
