Subject

This was a painting I did as an entry for the VX Art Tournament in 2021 hosted by Comic Con and Vortex Comics. I made it through to the semi finals, and I had to paint something with the theme “African Mythology” so I painted Nyaminyami.

Nyaminyami is a mythological serpent from my country of birth (Zimbabwe), which is said to live in Lake Kariba. He is said to have a snake body and fish head. and is always portrayed in curios as coiled with large fangs. Alleged eye witnesses say the water flows unnaturally whenever he appears, hence the whirlpool.

Medium

Digital Painting.
