Mythology Project - Hotaru Picture

Fifth (really fourth) in the series. (This is my second favorite after Xeng's)

Hotaru is part Thai, part Canadian, with a tad of Japanese and Korean. And she always looks so pretty.

Her design is based off the Thai Kinnaree, a beautiful creature with the head, torso, and arms of a woman and the legs, tail, and wings of a bird. [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.
