Kelpie

The Kelpie stories originated in Scotland.  A Kelpie is a horse-like creature that lives in the seas.  It also has the ability to take human form.  It is said that this beast is mostly malicious and not one that you want to cross in the wild.

For my depiction, I wanted to show the more majestic side of the creature.  I originally did the colorful and vibrant version, and then decided to try the black and white version.  Which one do you like better?  Leave a comment!
