Almost everyone is into or interested in Japanese mythology in some way. I know that I am fascinated with creatures from Japanese and Greek mythology and because of that I would like to do another lesson on how to draw a Fire Kirin step by step. Now I already submitted a lesson on a Japanese Kirin but the picture is kind of ugly and boring which is why it probably never got voted on. I was going to replace the old tutorial with this new one, but then no one would have known it was there because the lesson wouldn’t show up as new just “updated”. So what I will do is just talk a bit more about the Japanese Kirin (although I don’t know what more I can say because I wrote like a five hundred word description on it already). There are many descriptions and tales about the Kirin and all of the myths are extremely interesting. The Kirin is sometimes referred to as the “Qilin” as well and is sometimes spelled as “Kylin”. But most people know of this mythical animal as being spelled as Kirin including myself. I wanted to draw a very cool looking Kirin so what I did was, take the colors and style of the diamond crested Phoenix and combined them with that of a typical Kirin. So now that I have said something interesting about this fabled animal, let’s now start learning how to draw a Fire Kirin step by step. There is a lot of steps but each one is very informative and easy to follow so you should have little difficulty when sketching it out. I shall return once again with two more lessons so like always stay tuned until I get back. Peace out people.
