Mythos: Beast from the East vol.1

on 9 February 2020 at 11:24:15 MST

Hello, everyone!

I’d like to introduce my new project: Mythos!

Mythos is going to be a series where I explore monsters, gods, and other magical creatures from mythologies around the world, beginning with the mythos of Japan.

Since Japanese mythology has more inspiration to draw from than I could reasonably fit in one artbook, I’m going to split it across two volumes. One volume will be focused on the holy beings known as Kami, and the other (this volume) will focus on the more common magical creatures known as yokai.

To help fund the project and to give you all a chance to take part in this series, I’m going to be opening up a number of slots for each of the yokai. For those who are interested, you can submit your OC and I’ll turn them into the yokai of your choice. If you don’t have an OC, you can still participate by submitting a design idea for one of the yokai.

Here’s an example of how I’ll “yokai-ify” a character, using my own character Aia: https://www.deviantart.com/undeadkitty13/art/Nekomata-Aia-828080491

I’ll be doing the yokaifications using my standard commission prices, but, as additional thanks for participation, you’ll receive a discount on the final product. Prices for each commission level can be found here: https://sta.sh/01iyfxjw2nnx

The final project will be sold as a hi-res digital art bundle for $80, with a 5% cumulative discount for each level of commission (ie, uncolored sketches will give a 5% discount, colored sketches give a 10% discount, and so on.) Patreon supporters will get an extra 5% discount, even if they don’t participate.

There will be two slots for each Yokai, since I don’t really want to draw fifty different kitsune. If you end up taking a slot but the design of the Yokai isn’t to your liking, I’ll offer a full refund (though, I won’t be able to give you a discount on the art bundle at the end if that happens.)

Here’s the list of the Yokai I'll be working on. During my research, I noticed that many of the yokai can be characterized as good, evil, or as a neutral (but annoying) trickster. Since I thought it would be fun to draw each version, you can pick which of the versions you’d like of that happens to be the Yokai of your choice.

    I like how your character designs can be so cool and awesome, but at the same time appear to be so huggable and cute in a way. I feel like want to cuddle the heck out of Uranus and Luna because they are so cool and adorable.
