Impundulu by Amadoodles Impundulu by Amadoodles
Haha, looks better in the thumbnail as always ;p

Aaaaannnyyyways. This is yet another entry to :iconmythsandlegends: bi weekly contest. I had a pretty epic concept in my head for this, but I just didn't have time to work on it. In know that the deadline is still a day away, but I really want to focus any spare time that I have on commissions rather than this. So have a rather rushed picture of an Impundulu.

Ps: I fail at mythology. the silly bird is apparently a part of South African mythology. Give me Pinkypink or a tokoloshe any day, but a vampire lightening bird that can turn into a sexy man and seduce women? Never heard of it XD
Then again, with so many cultures here, and my own being pretty Western, I guess it's understandable?

Also, spell check is uneducated and doesn't know what a tokoloshe is D<

Woo! I'm always happy to meet another south african on here!
Hehehe Can't say I'd heard too much about the impundulu before this, but I was super excited that it was South African XD

Um, I'm uneducated and don't know what a tokoloshe is. This dude sort of reminds me of a thunderbird, though. Big lightning summoning birds that eat killer whales. xD South African mythology sounds interesting, though.

Oh you uneducated person D< You're as bad a spell check.
Thunderbirds sound cool. Fearn described it as a demon archeopteryx XD

I must say, I find pretty much all mythology interesting
