Gruesome Guardians

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all well :)

This week saw the start of a new challenge at Haunted Design House......... and that challenge is Gruesome Guardians.  You are to create a dark, Gothic or Halloween based art piece featuring Gargoyles, Gryphon's  Dragons, Leprechauns, fairies etc.  We are looking for the beasts and creatures that protect or guard the pots of gold, the doorways to other worlds, Excalibur, or anything of value in the underworld, or days of myth and yore. Please be sure and let us know in your post, what your creature guards or protects.

Here is my Gruesome Guardian and he is protecting my family and me.
