"Apis Bull of Mempis" (Cool Color Version) B.\r\n\r\nThis was actually my 2nd version.\r\n\r\nThe Apis Bull of Memphis was believed to be the reincarnation of the god "Ptah"; and in some Eras, believed to be the reincarnation of "Osirus".\r\n\r\n(By the way, I don't worship idols, I just like to draw and read about 'em. So, don't be a party pooper!)

Apis Bull of Memphis (Original Vison Version in Warm Colors)\r\n\r\nActually, the Apis Bull is supposed to have an Eagle on it's back, (according to some descriptions) yet it didn't quite fit in the pic, and I made the horns more like the Mid Western American Steers. The Bulls in Egypt actually have horns that curv upwards and round.

This is my Chinese Vixen Demon (Fox). They are called "Huli Jing" and are a kind of "Yao guai". The most common ones in Chinese fairytails are the 9 tails vixens. When I read "Journey to the West" these were the most offen fought demons of the Monkey King.

\r\nThe most common type of "Yao guai" (Demon/Imp/Moster/Spector)stories in Chinese Mythology are the "Huli jing". \r\nHulijing are Foxes (Vixens) and in most stories about the Hulijing involve it changing into a beautiful woman, and seducing a powerful or Rich Man, and on the night of the marriage she will eat him or suck his blood. In other stories, the Hulijing will hunger for Virgin Males, particularly Monks. \r\n\r\nThe background is an actual painting I made for an animation, but I reused it for this illustration.\r\n\r\nThe vixen was sketched in pencils, and the coloring was doen in Adobe Photoshop.

"Yao guai" are the most common charecters in Chinese Mythology. A "Yao guai" is usually a kind of Imp or Demon which was an animal that had sucked the spirits and essence from the stars, Moon, Earth, Heaven, Etc. and Learned "The Way". (Dao)\r\n\r\nYaoguai are also kinds of ghosts and spectors, or even Zombies and Monsters. \r\n\r\nAll Yaoguai have an appetite for human flesh, or blood. \r\n\r\nThe most common type of Yaoguai in most stories are the Vixens and 9-Tailed Vixens (Female foxes) which are called "Huli jing". In most of these stories, the Hulijing changes her body into a human woman and seduces a virgin Male, usually a rich or powerful person or sometimes a Monk, and on the wedding night she will eat him.
