I'm still working on my "Uncharted Waters" sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project.
This time I picked a creature from Native American mythology. Uncegila was a giant river snake who polluted water (notice my little fish skeletons in the background). She was killed by twin brothers, and when she died it created the badlands in Nebraska.
I love snakes and reptiles... they always seem to get a bad rap in mythology and world religions!
