Prompt no. 13 - 6 limbed creature.

The first creature to spring to mind when I thought of 6 limbs, was a dragon. However, since dragons are something I draw frequently, I wanted to try something a little different. So a dragon-cat it was! After completing it I decided to do a little research to see if dragon-cats are a thing, and it turns out there are a few dotted throughout mythology! The Tatzelwurm / Stollenwurm being one of them (though I don't believe that these creatures tend to have wings). This picture actually has a dual purpose - I sketched it out a few weeks ago for the #creatuanary challenge, long before getting chance to paint it. During that time I came across the tag #galaxiesforqinni - Immediately I knew I had to incorporate galaxies into this piece! I wanted to make the creature as colourful as possible too, for extra cheering-up effect. (If you haven't heard of the Galaxies for Qinni tag, definitely look up pearl_plam and Nepucat, and create a galaxy to cheer up the wonderful qinniart (all three create Amazing art work too, so be sure to check them out on Instagram). Hope you all like this strange little creature 💜. Can anyone think of a name? 🌟
