August 2008: Chinese Gargoyles

You should all know by now how much I love the cultural topics... I've actually been saving this one up to tie in with the Olympics this summer, and it's finally here! So yes, the topic for August is Chinese Gargoyles - draw gargoyles from the Chinese culture, or have your favorite characters visit the country's landmarks, or illustrate a Chinese story... Get creative!! My only rule is going to be no political entries. I know there's a lot of protest going on over various things but this is not the place to showcase it. Thanks, and have fun!

Mascots by Nebulan! Thanks again!

September's Topic Will Be: Video Games Gargoyles - Garg up characters from your favorite video games, redo of July 2003. (Mascots claimed by Volpe de Fuego!)

Title: The five elements
Artist: Emili alys [D.A]
here is my entry I dyed some paper and drew gargoyles in chinese ink with a brush, each gargoyle representing a different chinese element, metal (white), Earth (yellow), Wood (green, and also being monkey), Water (blue is also the element of death) and Fire (red as the vermillion bird) each with their characters- im sorry if i wrote them wrong.

Most of the time, Kwan Lin is usually off tending to her garg beasts but when she chooses to dress up, this Chinese gargoyle becomes a rare and delicate flower.

Title: "Lin," The Shaolin Protector
Artist: Jose Tarin
Lin "Beautuful Jade" She is a KIRIN gargoyle. She may not have wings, but she is an excellent acrobat and Kung Fu Master at a Shaolin Tample in China. There are not too many Gargoyles remaining in her Clan. The best way to describe her appearance in daylight is covered with stone, except a jade horn & scale markings.

Title: White rice or Fried Rice
Artist: chaos destine [DeviantArt]
Just some random Chinese female Gargess. How can they walk in those shoes?
Thought it would be funny here to have her with a bowl of rice because every time I have Chinese food it always comes with rice and they ask "Do you want Fried rice or White rice"?

Title: Count G's Petshop
Artist: VoLpE de FuEgO [DeviantArt]
The theme of China brought to mind two of my favorite fandoms:
Petshop of Horrors and of course, Gargoyles ;p Here we have the mysterious Count Sofu D as a Gargoyle with some Garg beasts, including Brooklyn's future Fu Dog in puppy form! Being of Chinese descent, Count "G" (G for gargoyle) is the regal head of the movement to protect and breed the rare Gargoyle Beast species. Welcome to G's petshop...tonight, you will find something you desire...
