My Gallery

I suppose my gallery is kind of small and it doesn't really grow that fast either. I wish it did. But it takes a lot of time painting one painting. And, of course, there are also a lot of failed attempts/abandoned works I'm not letting you see. I know my work isn't the greatest, but despite all my rantings in the descriptions I am sort of happy with it. Most of the times.

Random Favourites

My Favourite Art on DA

Here are the works that managed to catch my attention, whether out of envy -I sometimes even depress myself into an inferiority complex going through this list- or admiration, whether they made me smile, laugh or whether they truly inspired me.

I wish I could say I commented on each one, but I'm sometimes guilty of fave-running. I hope to keep that to a minimum in the future.

But if your work is in here, you can be assured that it made a lasting impression. I probably loved it. Very much.

Hi there!

The name's Caroline, but on the interblag I'm known as Vyrilien. It's my hobby to paint mythological creatures/monsters, but occasionally I will feel the need to venture a little further outside my comfort zone and tackle different subjects. I hope that in the future I will have painted at least one picture for every one of the most well-known mythological creatures out there. A bit like GENZOMAN I guess, just a whole lot less awesome and efficient.

As a general rule I do not take up requests, but I tend to get randomly inspired so you're always free to suggest whatever mythical figure you think I should paint next. Just don't expect anything, because even if I really like the idea chances are my muses may disappoint me. I do not offer commissions. I plan to someday, but I'm not confident enough to do so as of yet.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! If I'm not responding I'm either still planning to or I'm going through one of my deviantART inactivity/hibernation phases and I'm very sorry. You may try my gmail if you'd still like to reach me.
Hello people!

As you all may (or may not) know it's the voting period for the entries to the Mythical Creatures contest going on deviantART. Voting closes on Wednesday so I figured it's now or never! :) Recently I joined this cool group FeatureChallenge, so I decided to join their Mythical Creatures Feature Challenge.

Here's (some) of the entries that have my enthusiastic vote!

Power to IMAGINE by IosifChezan
If this design or his other one doesn't end up winning, I'm not sure I know what should! Incredibly powerful
East meets West by LindseyWArt
Absolutely badass. What more should I say? Also, this is on a red shirt!
DA Myth challenge: Beware the Kraken by Shockowaffel
Humorous and visually appealing. The pink pops off this design fantastically!
Shaman by Fiesta-kun
Not sure if it could be considered a mythical creature, but this would make for one amazing Tee!
Quarter past six by dyingmoonshine
Absolutely stunning. Love how he achieved so much contrast and vivid colouration with just 5 colours!
Humayun - prophetic bird by Medueljca
I love the style of this one! And who could say no to those beautiful blue hues? They work fantastic on the gray shirt.
The intricacy of this design blew my mind when I saw it!
Cerberus by Ink-Fish
A little dark maybe, but when you look closer you can see the ferocity of this badass design!
Beware the eyes of Basilisk by UrukkiSaki
One of my absolute favourites for obvious reasons. Those colours have never before looked so amazing. And the lines are the best I've seen of all the shirt designs!
Phoenix Rising by queenofeagles
This design certainly deserves a lot more attention. Just look at those details!
six tales (white shirt) by Raldorac
Features multiple creatures in a beautifully harmonious design with fantastically effective colour use! (Just look at that dragon! <3)
Qilin by LhuneArt
Simple but stylish! Love the semi-oriental style of the Qilin! Combined with the back design this makes for an amazing shirt!
Medusa and Quetzalcoatl by OdysseusStone
Medusa and Quetzacoatl? A match made in T-shirt design heaven! Not a personal fan of the colours maybe, but they are styled just right to match each other perfectly.
The Fates (big version) by Chrysalid8
Deserves much more exposure! What a great idea to portray the Fates! The positioning of the figures and the great back design really make this shirt work.
Bloody Full Moon by Mirthrynn
Incredibly effective design. An instant wow when I saw this.
ibong adarna by onelillwitch
Only 17 faves? This gem deserves so much more. Beautifully designed and depicts such an original creature.

I had a few more in mind, but this feature is long enough as it is! If you have the time, have a browse of the entries beyond the popular page; so many great entries can be found there! I'll be curious as to what makes it into the top 100 by Wednesday :) Oh and if you want to join the Feature Challenge, please do!

I just wanted to wish you a Happy Birthday!

I notice you’re from the Netherlands!  I’ve always been fascinated with that place’s history and culture. I stopped there for about an hour when I was on a European tour and I’ve always wished we could have stayed longer! I would love to ride in one of those canals!

I found that a lot of people here in the U.S. don’t know much about their own country, much less anyone else's.  :(

I post prayer updates about different countries. Part of the reason is to raise awareness about what's going on in the rest of the world.

Recently I’ve started my own private initiative; if I notice someone on DA  is from another country, if I've done their country I let them know. It’s my way of letting them know that others are thinking about their home. :)

This update is about your home! Consider it a birthday gift!…


GOD bless you now and always.
