Andy Kehoe: Manticore


Red-pelted, man-headed lionine beast of India. The Manticore's most intriguing feature is its three rows of teeth. The best part of doing the Beasts! project was my constant discovery of new, truly incredible artists. Andy Kehoe is one of those... This is a gorgeous landscape blending brilliantly with the otherwise unlikely 'camouflage' of a red creature.

Really looking forward to the book! Any chance we can see a preview of the Brinkman monster??

Thanks Aeron. I'm not sure of my system here with posting. I'll see about that. Meanwhile, why don't you draw the creature and I'll post it here? I want more audience participation. If you're into it.

Brinkman's beast was based on this quick description I sent him: Great stone giants of Iroquois myth. Enormous and clumsy, they frequently fight amongst themselves, uprooting trees as weapons and hurling boulders. The hills bellow with their bickering.
