Enfield by Totalrandomness Enfield by Totalrandomness
One of the lesser known mythological creatures is this, the Enfield!
I've been meaning to try and draw one for a while; it's the animal on the crest of my mother's family's coat of arms.

"the head of a fox, the chest of an elephant, the mane of a horse, the forelegs of an eagle , the body and hind legs of a hound , and the tail of a lion. "

I didn't quite go for the 'chest of an elephant' look, because I honestly didn't know how it would work.

This is hilariously awesome. Awesome cause I love endfields and this is great work. Hilarious because I happen to have a coat of arms I made myself that uses a green enfield.

Thumbs up for an excellent enfield picture. Yours has a far less jarring transition between parts, though I'm unsure that green is the best colour for them. I'm partial to my blues, personally. ;)

Seriously, though, good to see them catching on.

Thanks very much :) It's based on the Enfield on the Kelly clan's coat of arms, though, so I couldn't do it any colour other than green :)

Someone else knows what an enfield is! I knew I was not alone.

haha yay! :D I've known about them for a good while, ever since I saw my grandma's coat of arms. But I never found out what they were called till I did the research to draw this :P

Hm, I've never heard of this Enfield before... someday I must think of a way to incorporate it into something creative. :3 Thank you, I have learned something new today!

... And also because of it, I will forever associate the Enfield with this picture. Amazing work. ^^
