Manticorus Cavernaus (Bio-Cup 2020 Redemption Round 2 Entry) Subtheme: Asian Mythology

Recommended Posts

"The manticore (Early Middle Persian: Merthykhuwar; Persian: مردخوار‎ Mardykhor) is a Persian legendary creature similar to the Egyptian sphinx that proliferated in western European medieval art as well. It has the head of a human, the body of a lion and a tail of venomous spines similar to porcupine quills, while other depictions have it with the tail of a scorpion". -Wikipedia

Originally built for RR2 of the 2020 BioCup. After working on it some more, I finally decided it was decent enough to take more photos of it. 

This delightful RR theme is the best of any BioCup themes in my opinion. It got me thinking a whole lot before I decided on this as the mythical creature to render in brick form. Having only come to this decision around five hours ago (finished at 5:40 am on Friday - 2 hours before RR2 deadline), this has been a fun quick build drifting away from the run-of-the-mill humanoids I've been churning out nonstop over the years.

More mythological creatures coming your way soon eventually. Until then!
