Tikbalang's Challenge by allengeneta Tikbalang's Challenge by allengeneta
This is the colored version of my winning piece for the pencilbrush art contest.

A Tikbalang is a Filipino Mythical creature with a head of a horse and a bulky body of a man. Usually stands bigger and larger than a human and their race is usually a royal or majestic one.

All done in Photoshop CS4, around more than 20 hrs of work.

Thanks for looking!

Very well detailed, though he does look more than a bit twisted up in his pose, to the point he appears immobilized and defenseless. If I was in that position before a fight... be so sweet as to lay flowers on my grave. The Big bad wolf looks to be in for a happy ending.
But it is a very well drawn picture.

The details and lighting are great! I'm curious, though; what creature is the tikbalang fighting?

I thought the tikbalang was a horse-like creature that jumped down from the trees to steal away unwary children?

Congrats on your DD.
