I posted my sketch of the Wolpertinger earlier and have now done a few more. I'm going on to make them in to linocuts, a technique similar to the woodcutting these original bestiaries would have used. First time with a new techniques, so it's pretty exciting learning new things!
Whilst researching these animals, I found out that a lot of them are actually used in some online games? My versions are a lot more sad sap than the ones in the games though! especially my leucrota... The original animals from the medieval bestiaries can be found here.
I changed my image from the penguin book design cover because I thought it'd make a good print and am considering making a series of these kind of images based on various stories
