Wisptober Day 27 - Humming
"One head for humming lullabies; one head to keep watch. It was a well known fact no child had ever come to harm at the old manor."
Monsters who are nice to kids are some of my favourite tales.:) On a side note I feel like I have done a lot of more muted colour this last few wisptobers. hmmm We will see how colours returns in the next few ones.:)

Common misconceptions surrounding the care of monsters
Contrary to popular belief, it is NOT normal for a Cerberus’s heads to fight with one another; this indicates anxiety or lack of proper enrichment.
Giant spiders are actually very social creatures, and should not be housed alone.
Provide your Sphinx with enrichment by answering its riddles. Though Sphinxes can be trained to attack those who answer incorrectly, they actually normally speak in riddles as a form of social play that is essential to their development and well-being.
If you cannot provide brimstone and a large pool of lava for bathing, don’t purchase a Hellhound! They are animals with very specific care needs and their health will suffer if they are not given the proper habitat. Likewise, most Hellhound kibble brands on the market do not meet the recommended daily requirement of damned souls for Hellhounds. Always check the labels!
The practice of putting blinders over the eyes of Basilisks to make them less dangerous is cruel. Basilisks should not be kept in enclosures where people other than expert caretakers normally come into view.
Many hippocampi enjoy pulling sea chariots, boats or inflatable floats and it can be a good source of enrichment and exercise. Make this activity fun for your hippocampus by rewarding it with treats such as fish and allowing it to participate as it wants to.
A labyrinth is NOT an appropriate habitat for a Minotaur!! Minotaurs need fresh grass and shade to lie down in to be happy. Also, a diet of only human flesh will cause malnutrition. Supplement your Minotaur’s diet of kidnapped youths with a source of fiber, such as hay!
Remember, that hatchling Roc is an adorable fluff ball now, but it will eventually become a fearsome elephant-sized bird of prey with a ravenous appetite and very demanding housing requirements. A pet should always be a well-researched commitment, not an impulsive decision.
While going into the wild and gaining a dragon’s trust is often romanticized, there are many dragons in search of a loving family much closer to home! Try looking into dragon rescue organizations near you.
Some Manticores need to be fed live prey; others, however, will accept prey that has been frozen and thawed. It depends on the individual.
Even smaller species of griffin need a lot of space. Domestic rock-griffins, though only the size of a cat, need room to fly and to build large nests. If you live in an apartment, it is better to adopt one of the smallest species, such as one of many types of song-griffins! Humming-griffins, however, though you may have seen cute videos on Instagram, should be avoided because they are not domesticated and their wild populations are endangered by the pet trade. It is best to admire their iridescent feathers in visits to accredited conservation organizations!

Sort of a study, but not really. Wanted to mash up a few reference pictures to draw from for my regular art workout, and it kinda turned into a pinup. Either she works out a lot or stupid people are very lean meat.
