Aughisky Swamp by tkpants Aughisky Swamp by tkpants
Aughisky/each uisge, the even-more-unruly cousin of the kelpie! He will eat you all up, except your liver.

Boy, that was fun. I wonder what else I can dig up and finish...

I had no idea anyone else even knew these existed and when I read "each uisage" I about had an aneurysm.

Great linework on this one, and I agree the dapple colouring looks really nice.

The different between the WIP and this final version is amazing- I'm glad you decided to dig this out of the archives and color it up! The thick lineart coupled with the lineless swamp looks fantastic :)

This is a very cool depiction of the each-uisge. It's nice to see more depictions of the underrated cousin to the kelpie on this website. The colours are great and the 'horse' really does look very menacing.

I love the line work for this. It sort of reminds me of 90's comics when thicker lines and stylized hair was all the rage.

Love it. The colors are great, nice and dark. And I like how you only outlined the beast itself, it makes him pop.

This has an excellent storybook feel :ohnoes: The way you've given the background various fields of depth, but kept the Aughisky the main focus, is great.

The lighting really sings here.

Dropping the far shore down makes the eyes pop nicely, too.

You do good carniverous horse!
