the questing beast

10

They’re all here! I took it upon myself to create an illustration of a Mythological creature or character for every letter of the alphabet, trying to span across a multitude of cultures and creature-types. Another thing I wanted to accomplish with this project was to find some the more unusual and/or obscure creatures that don’t get as much representation in artwork. Individual Tumblr Posts with said creatures’ descriptions are below.

Again, I’ll be making this into a small run of books as a way to test the waters. If there’s more demand for a larger run, I’ll definitely be looking into it!

Name: Questing Beast, Beast Glatisant (Barking Beast)
Area of Origin: Britain, Arthurian Legends

The Questing Beast is the subject of numerous quests undertaken by such famous knights as King Arthur, King Pellinore, Sir Palamedes and Sir Percival. Out of these figures, Pellinore was the one known to have endlessly hunted the thing. The beast has the body of a leopard, the back end of a lion, the feet of a hart or deer, and lastly, the head and neck of a snake. Its name comes from the noise it emits, a barking likened to many hounds questing. The term ‘Glatisant’ is derived from the french word glapissant, meaning 'yelp’ or 'bark’. The creature is a variant on the mythological medieval view of the Giraffe. It is revealed by the great wizard Merlin that the beast was born of a human woman, a princess who had lusted after her own brother. After sleeping with a devil with promises of her brother’s love, the devil manipulated her into accusing her brother of rape. The siblings’ father had the brother torn apart by dogs as punishment, but shortly before the brother’s death, he prophesied that his sister would give birth to an abomination that would make the same sounds as the dogs that were to kill him. The Questing Beast appears to King Arthur in Thomas Malory’s Le Morte d'Arthur after he has an affair with his sister Morgause, though the two were unaware of their familial relation when the act occurred. The act resulted in the illegitimate birth of his son Mordred. Arthur sees the beast after waking from a disturbing dream that foretells Mordred’s destruction of the realm. The Questing Beast has been solidified as a symbol of the incest, chaos and violence that ultimately destroys Arthur’s kingdom.

Past sketches I rediscovered of a creature design I intend to use in the distant future. I’m really happy with this gal. Of course, my husband ink-imp-sketch helped me quite a bit since he is the master of creature design. I’d like to see more artists make attempts at the beast Glatisant since it’s a challenging thing to design and since not many interpretations can be found online.

What is Your Favorite Group?

What is your personal favorite group of monsters? And what is your least favorite group of monsters? And why? 

My own personal favorite groups are mostly: Chimerae, Vermin, Plant, Fae, Demon, Tsukumogami. My ultimate favorite is probably Aberration. I just always liked the freaks of nature, the bizarre, the magical and insane. 

My least favorite group is probably the Gods, never cared much for powerhouses! Don’t really care for the Humanoid group that much either. 

And while most of these creatures (spare for some fake myths) come from mythology, this is from my own project. So some undead aren’t undead in the myth/folklore/cryptid stories, and many plants aren’t plants in the real myth, same with Oozes. But otherwise most monsters end up in the same groups which is boring.
