Every 2 weeks I post a new art challenge prompt! The new #KWPrompts is #Cryptid

Watercolor of a yellow-orange-red fishlike animal with grey speckles down its back & on it fins. It has large black eyes & 3 tails. Caustic patterns cover the surface of the blue-green water it swims through. Lake monsters of the USA, just looking for a polling station…

What is a Cryptid?

Cryptids are animals that might exist, but no one has proven it so far. Sasquatch, Merfolk, Xenomorphs, Mothman… The list is nearly endless! Don’t want to limit yourself to already established cryptids? You don't have to! Make traditional cryptids, or ones nobody has seen before, or ones nobody should ever see! Let’s spend the next 2 weeks playing with Cryptids!

You can submit a new picture every day, work on one picture for 2 weeks, or post pictures randomly. This is the most laid-back art challenge on the internet, & that means you have plenty of time to make your art however you want. Just make sure you tag me @KarinWanderer so I see it!
