About the creature in first demand. " Bai Ze (Wiki link: [link]
)" is a Mystic creature in Chinese Mythology. Like Qilin, Dragon or Fenghuang, it is very majestic and noble. Legends has it that it only appear when the world is ruled by a wise sage.
The ancient book recorded that:
" Huang Di, the yellow emperor, once patrolled to the east sea and Huan mountain where he was encountered by a mystic creature, Bai Ze. Bai Ze could speak. It understand the ways of the world and every mystic creature. It told to the emperor about the figure and name of 11520 kinds of mystic creature in total. The emperor order his accompany to write them down and make them known to the public.The emperor then use them as exterminating incantation"(rough translation)
Bai Ze know everything about mystic creature and spirits so it is thought that it has the power to exterminate the evil and welcome the serene. Strange to say thought, Bai Ze talks so much about other mystic creature, yet no description about its own looks and figure could be found in the book. Therefore the posterity could only imagine what could it look like. In The Spring and Autumn Period in Chinese( approximately 771 to 476 BC ), it is described as some herbivores like deer. In Tang Dynasty in Chinese(approximately 618 to 907 AD), it is described as some carnivores like bear. Some even said that the creature lives in Kunlun Mountains, The sacred mountain of Taoist, and its completely white with the shape of horse.
Anyway, I do like the the herbivores figure, so I reference this [link]
(from online game: Jade Dynasty ) and this [link]
(from online game :Tian Xia) and ponify it. It's still a scratch though, maybe one day I could draw it more completely.
Hope you like it.
