Monster of the year by xiaobaosg Monster of the year by xiaobaosg

A collaboration with :iconsaltyshadow:
& our 4th collaboration .

"Design is based on a Chinese mythology, about “Nian” ( which means “Year” in English ), a furious monster that lived in the ancient time. Nian was born to be very ugly and ferocious, which looked like either dragons or unicorns. It is believed that around the Spring Festival, the monster would come down from the sky to hunt people.”

Here we had kind of twisted the story to our version that the monster " Nian" had actually descended from the Sky like a shooting star.

Pretty good, but I suggest you add two more monsters and a moon. Then it will be perfect!
