mythic-beasts

thetruezsquared  asked:

Dickard, I'm a little scared for Skull Island. I want it to succeed, but that trailer showed next to no monsters in it. Sure Sam Jackson and Goodman are cool, but I believe were were promised, and I quote, "strange creatures-mythic beasts". Any words of encouragement? Cause we could need them about now.

why would you show everything you got in the very first trailer to be released for a movie that comes out next year

Michael Maier - Salamander (The Hieroglyph of Fire), “Atalanta Fugiens”, 1617.

The salamander is an amphibian of the order Urodela which, as with many real creatures, often has been ascribed fantastic and sometimes occult qualities by pre-modern authors (as in the allegorical descriptions of animals in medieval bestiaries) not possessed by the real organism. The legendary salamander is often depicted as a typical salamander in shape, with a lizard-like form, but is usually ascribed an affinity with fire, sometimes specifically elemental fire.

“The hieroglyph of Fire, the Salamander is the symbol, at once, of Sulphur and of the Secret Fire. The Secret Fire, hidden under a saline aspect, is indispensible so that the prepared Matter, or Subject of the Philosophers, may fulfill its calling as a mother. Each form of generation seeks the aid of the proper agent. As animals are born of a fecundated egg, and vegetables from a seed that has been made prolific, so minerals and metals have their origin in a Seed, a metallic liquor, fertilised by the mineral Fire. The spiritual Secret Fire, corporified as a Salt, is the hidden Sulphur which is the Philosophick Tincture, and which fixes all flying Spirits.”

Once upon a time… 

I could read all the Rhink fanfiction as it was written and have time to read through all the ones that were posted before I got here.

I could scroll to where I left off in my dash even if I was gone for over 24 hours.

I didn’t have all you beauties and never imagined I would.

why some ideas are left abandoned

when i was 15, i started working on a webcomic.

[excuse the shitty old artwork]

The story was about a traveler, an ex-bounty hunter, and a runaway princess who join forces to track down these mysterious (and possibly delicious) mythical beasts.

It was a story of magic, mystery, and friendship.

And after all of that…

After what was going to be several chapters of buildup…

They find the mythical beasts that brought them together.

And they look like this:

I’m serious.

That’s what the creatures looked like.

It was all played straight too.

So next time you think “Aww, I feel bad that I didn’t stick with that project I started 4-5 years ago…”

Just remember
