Mythology Project - Aumatoli Picture

Seventh in the series: Aumatoli.

Aumatoli is half Russian, half French.

She is portrayed as a Leshy, a Slavic woodland spirit that guards the forests and the wildlife that lives there. A Leshy can be pictured in various forms, from something like a giant furry creature to a sort of centaur (which I drew her as). [link]

Behind her is a gargouille, a serpent-like water dragon said to be found in the Seine rive in France. [link]

Project Description
The mythology project is something I did for the concentration portion of my AP Art portfolio. Devil's Parliament is a story of cultural and personal diversity in an era of strict social barriers. Each of my characters is of uncommonly mixed races; and each has his or her own distinct personality. After some research, I decided to integrate creatures/figures from the mythology of each character's cultures into the characters themselves to portray not only their heritage but their own unique personas.
