How are there still people finding this blog whatthehell I thought everyone who’d care found it years ago Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... 35 Comments You are being to hard on yourself. You always are. I have enjoyed these posts for quite some time now and I truly think that they have oftentimes given me some interesting concepts to think about. I also think your drawings are an awesome representation of the information you post that many other blogs on mythological createures lack but of course it is your decision. I hope you find a way to continue this site it would be sad to see it go LikeLiked by 1 person Maybe it’s because there are always new people! LikeLiked by 1 person Most of the books and things you use for reference are inaccessible to me and many others, so this site is kind of a treasure trove of lesser known (and more interesting) mythical creatures. LikeLike Are you kidding? This place is amazing! I lurk around here all the time, but the fact that you find a creature, draw it, and then (english major incoming) cite your sources. MMM! Primo Shit right here, really. Thank you ❤ LikeLike I found it through one of your drawings about 4-5 months ago. LikeLike New people google things everyday LikeLike My childhood love for cryptids came back after finding a podcast called Cryptid Keepers and it made me look up blogs about things hence finding you LikeLike Friendly suggestion. Another social media, like Instagram account could help. Either to advertise the site or post your art there. It was a huge advantage, since I only had a Deviantart account at the time. I’d avoid Twitter though, but that’s my opinion LikeLike Do you need to talk with a therapist or something? It feels like every other week in my feed you’re having a breakdown or talking about how much you suck or something. Maybe you should talk with someone LikeLiked by 1 person Yes LikeLiked by 1 person Mate, get help if you need it. As your audience, we want you to be happy. I’ve watched this blog for years and it really makes me sad to know that your struggling. I hope i can speak for the majority when i say that we don’t care if you take breaks to aide your mental health. Please find a therapist and get help, you really need it. LikeLiked by 1 person I’m glad someone finally said it. Seriously, these last few posts have been concerning and are even starting to be an emotional drain to read. The author really should talk to someone. Or at the very least make some kind of decision in regards to what they want to do with the blog. At the risk of sounding insensitive, four or five posts over the span of a couple of months talking about how much they hate their art is a cry for help. Action needs to be taken for their mental health LikeLike I found this blog recently due my researches about different mythical creatures arround the world. I think it happen to be one of the very few (if not the only one) detailed sources (in english) for a creature that i didn’t hear about before. I think the crature’s name pops up in some random video in youtube and then I googled it. In this blog i find much more interesting creatures described detailed and fully. Btw: this is my google sheet about different creatures that grows up thanks to your blog: https://tinyurl.com/qwa6wjh LikeLike Most people who visit your site don’t comment, think of it like being watched without ever knowing your audience. Your work is fantastic, and people do adore the way you can introduce them to myths and mythology beyond the standard Greek and Norse. LikeLike Love the work put into this collection of knowledge. Keep it up man LikeLike Word of mouth LikeLike I have always had a love of mythical creatures and before my only knowledge of them had been through books that talked of the same old legends again and again. I could try and find other critters on different websites like top 10 mythical creatures and such, but none of those really gave anything solid or even had a remotely human feel to it. The way you categorize and document these creatures makes me, and I am sure many others, feel as if this creature was and still could be real. Your drawings especially add to “realness” of it all. You are able to add a spice of life to each and every entry that pops up on our screens and I can certainly tell you it brings a little more life into every ones day. I appreciate and adore all of the work you do for these posts and I’ll tell you that it has not been in vain. You have brought inspiration to many people across platforms and even if you do not continue to post, your gifts still will light many sparks of imagination in the future. LikeLike Because you made the best beastiary on the internet by far LikeLike I bookmarked your site and revisit it occassionally for refs. It’s like the ONLY place on the web that I know of with such obscure creatures! If you ever decide to quit, please leave this site up if you can. Or save the knowledge because your work is a blessing. And don’t be hard on yourself OR your art. Your pictures are charming and you clearly put your heart into it. So from one artist to another, have more confidence in yourself. You are your own biggest fan. ❤️ LikeLike Votre site est génial !!! Vous êtes brillant !!! Prenez du temps pour vous et revenez quand vous serrez en meilleur santé, moi et d’autres amis français, nous adorons ce site et votre travail 🙂 LikeLike I hope whatever you decide, you know that there’s a lot of fans behind you. LikeLike Yo llevo vario tiempo tus publicaciones,de echo me hace gracia que digas lo de tu arte cuando estpy esperando que este post se haga un libro con tan originales y llamativas ilustraciones.No te rindas,yo también soy artista y dudo de mi arte pero por eso dibujo tanto,para mejorar.Es cierto que hay que ser exigente con uno mismo pero también debes estar orgulloso de todo el trabajo y sobretodo investigación que le echas a tus obras.Por favor sigue asi. LikeLike you can’t give up on drawing now you just can’t LikeLike I love your artwork! Seeing the drawings makes an immediate connection with me in a way that words can’t. 🙂 I used your website recently for a poetry exercise in one of my classes. Everyone really loved it! LikeLike You are great for having taught us about so many obscure myths and likely inspired a lot of folklore readers and artists everywhere. I hope for you that things will feel alright soon. LikeLike i love you work LikeLike This place is a massive source of inspiration for me and a great starting point for researching! Your illustrations and explanations of these myths are fantastic. You rock! LikeLike I’ve always has a passing interest in mythical creatures and the like. When I came across this blog a few months ago I instantly became hooked! I’ve been checking this blog on and off since. I thank you for everything you posted thus far. LikeLike I just discovered your wondrous book of creatures! Your art is amazing! I can easily imagine the hours to come pouring over your detailed imagery, the fascinating descriptions of these beasts and their lore. I encourage you to continue this labor of love. You have a gift! LikeLiked by 1 person Nope, it’s becoming mainstream! It means two things: Firstly; people adore your drawings and descriptions, me included and I still wonder how did this evade me all these years =D, and secondly; more people are caring about monsters and bestiaries, which is also a dream of mine come true. All in all, this is a blessing for everyone and I hope, at least, you don’t take it away. Thanks. LikeLike You have done an incredible job putting together bios for so many creatures. Your art gives a fantastic visual of the critters and has inspired me draw again. Your work is thorough and I love the size scale and habitat range. I have literally spent hours looking art and reading about all the monsters. Any time I get excited to tell someone about a mythical creature I use your blog to show them! Obviously you don’t have to, but I really really really hope that you continue to post your art! LikeLike Of course people are still finding it, this is the most comprehensive and intriguing bestiary on the entire internet and unlike most other places that even mention these obscure creatures, you have these fascinating illustrations to go along with the entries. Please never delete this! LikeLike Found this after googling a creature I heard about on a podcast. Your artwork and the amount of content drew me in. This is amazing. I always liked catalog like sites for mythical beings. LikeLike One should never stop learning!! LikeLike A lot of your content is found on Pinterest, and I kept seeing your illustrations on there and I thought, who made these and where do these come from? So I followed the link and here I am . I’m so happy I found your site there arent a lot of sites where you can explore things like these . LikeLike Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
