For this project I have continued to make a series of drawing of different mythical creatures such as werewolves, fairies and centaurs. I have also gone with less popular ones which you would only usually see in Greek mythology such as a Faunus which is a half man half goat creature and others such as kitsune which comes from Japanese myths which is a half human half fox creature.

My idea for this project is to focus on mythical creatures and all the different forms they come in because my idea behind it is to look into what they can represent for the artist and how people use myths and fantasy to almost escape real life and the problems going on in the real world.

Many people around the world suffer many different issues and most use fantasy as a distraction from their problems and help them deal with them. Fantasy and mythical creatures allow people to bring their dreams and visions to life no matter how elaborate they are because it allows them to express themselves.
