A Menagerie of Thai Creatures

Have been working on an acrylic painting inspired by Thai art for the NUS module, SE3224 Thai Drawing and Painting.

Here are some of the references that I've been using:

Thai squirrels
Thai birds
Thai... creatures
Apparently, all animals can be bred with fishes to produce these myths.
This bird looks a bit like the Road Runner right??
By the way, this is how the Road Runner looks like.
Thai mythological creatures are mishmashes of many creatures.
Is he scratching his sensitive area?
Apparently, the upturned palm means that the creature is crying.

Pushing perfectly good paint on a perfectly good canvas to produce a imperfectly painted piece is actually a good way to escape from the stresses of life and living.
