Two studies of T'ao-t'ieh
A couple of designs of the T'ao-t'ieh: dragon-like creatures which are said to look somewhat like a bull and tiger. Since the design of the face is the only visible element on the ritual/food vessels where they are typically found, there's a bit of freedom in interpreting what it might look like otherwise. The designs are for a painting I'm hoping to start on sometime.
