Monsterama: Bauk by ryodita
Monsterama: Bauk
Another monster for NelaNequins and my little Halloween Special. She writes the text while I do the illustrations.

The Bauk is a monster from serbian mythology, somewhat like a boogey man but a bit more animalistic. It is supposed to be covered with fur, walking very unstable on two feet and being afraid of light. It´s name comes from the sound it makes, which sounds somewhat like "bauk". In the serbian translation of Lord of the Rings, the goblins are also called "bauk", so I assume this is a very versatile monster and it´s looks are not very clearly defined.

But let Nela tell you more about this:

In dark corners of certain rooms or beneath the old stairs of some basements, as well as on attics or in the shadow of old, dead trees, a creature called Bauk is living. There – in the darkness, to which it is perfectly adapted – it is waiting for its pray, to grap it quickly with its strong paws and devore it afterwards. The Bauk tends not to be picky, what kind of meat it will eat. Only a few of those, who could wrench themselves from the paws of this creature, could discribe the look of the Bauk, as he seems to be able to become one with the shadow. Hence it would be advised, to generally rather stay away from such dark corners.

We hope you will stop by for the next creature :)

Monsterama: Banshee by ryodita
Monsterama: Banshee
Another monster for NelaNequins and my little Halloween Special. She writes the text while I do the illustrations.

This time we travel to Ireland to meet the Banshee, propably one of the better known characters in our series. She joins gaelic clans to mourn the death of their members in advance. Sometimes she is also seen singing and combing her hair similar to the mermaid. Her name may come from the irish words "bean sí" which might translate to "woman from the burial mounds" what could be a paraphrase for "woman from the Otherworld". But let Nela tell you more about her:

Once the green grasslands of Ireland are turned dark and gray by the fall of the night, sometimes a ghostly song can be heard that is not out of this world. This song might originate from a Banshee, a creature, which origin lies between the realms of ghosts and fearies, but always takes the shape of a woman. It is said, that a long time ago, Banshees have sung at the funerals of great warriors and kings, but nowadays the song of a Banshee foretells a death soon to come, whereever the song is heard.

Monsterama: Coco by ryodita
Monsterama: Coco
Another monster for NelaNequins and my little Halloween Special. She writes the text while I do the illustrations. Today we met a Spanish monster, but let Nela tell you more about that:

Even though parents, relatives and teachers give constant warnings, there always will be children, who won't behave, who play aggressive and taunt and provoke others without any respect. But those children should be alert, when they are alone in their rooms at night, as in each dark corner of their room Coco could hide. Nobody knows, where Coco comes from, but he can merge with the shadows and if he finds a misbehaving child, he will haunt the child and get his sould by night. You ask where he will take the soul? Nobody knows, but without a doubt, it is a place of no return!

Monsterama: Draugr by ryodita
Monsterama: Draugr
Another monster for NelaNequins and my little Halloween Special. She writes the text while I do the illustrations. What did rough and scary vikings fear most? ZOMBIES! Or Draugr, as they called them (yeah it´s not an invention of Skyrim but an actual mythical creature). The best known draugr is probably one called Glámr from the icelandic Grettis-Saga, which might date back to the 9th or 10th century. There the draugr does not only posess magical abilities but he is actually damaging the hero´s life permanently with a curse. But what exactly is a Draugr? As usual the text is written by my friend Nela:

In some cases it might happen, that a man, who lived a dispicable life, may return after his death to haunt his living. Thus the dark soul can return to its body – as long as no necessary precautions have been made – and the dead man might rise again as a draugr. As a draugr he will have superhuman strength and can change his shape at will. In fact the draugr might rise to a height up to three times his original size. Draugrs are also said to eat human flesh and human blood. To prevent, it needs to be made sure, that the body is buried in a lying position. It also might be helpful to tie the feet of the dead, so he – if the spirit might return – won't be able to walk.

Hi there and thank you for visiting my profile!

My name is ryodita and I´m an illustrator. Here in my gallery you will mostly find comicstuff and a lot of fanart. I hope you will see something you like in my gallery and that it will entertain you for a while^^
Suggestions

I´m always open for suggestions, since this is an opportunity to find something to draw I never thought of before. But please keep in mind, that this is only a suggestion and not an order, because this should be fun for both sides and there is some stuff out there I just don´t want to draw for one reason or another (some things that come immediately to my mind are furries or "pokémonlike" creatures, Twilight, porn or this overly cutesy shojomanga style). But in general I´m interested in many things so don´t worry too much about that XD.

"Draw my OCs for me!"

Since I got a lot of questions about this: please do NOT suggest OCs! I would do that as a paid commission, so if you are seriously interested in commissioning me for this, please read below under "Commissions". The explaination for this is, that I really want to be sure that the commissioner is serious about this task. If you want me to draw an OC this is a very personal thing and I will spend a lot of time with your character. So I just want to make sure, that my time is well spent to make someone happy and that I won´t waste time with somebody who will forget that he even commissioned me after one day. And believe me: I would not complain about that if I would not have made experiences with that.


Commissions

If you want to commission me for commercial projects, 2d animation, illustrations or logodesign please send me a note. Since every project is different in complexity and volume I think it is best to discuss your project individually and I will see what I can do for you.


Thank you for reading :)

Tag, quality  deviant, you’re it! Quality doesn't mean that you have a lot of followers, or a lot of messages. It means that you’re nice to other people, and you deserve to be happy. If you get this message, someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don’t care how much followers you have. Send this to 10 deviants who deserve it. If you break the chain, nothing will happen. But it’s just good to let someone know that you love them!
