Kelpie Waterhorse Sally Gottschalk Fantasy Illustration Creature

Kelpie Steed

I have always found the idea strange that the northern water horse aka kelpie is supposed to look like an actual horse. Everyone who has crossed a river on horseback knows they can swim but they aren´t the best swimmers in the world and horses hate walking through muddy areas where their thin legs sink deep into the ground. I like the idea of him being a real aquatic predator, webbing between his clawed hands and feet, covered with scales and using his strong fish like tale to propel himself through the water like a crocodile in search for prey….

Utopolis – Aufbruch der Tiere – Multiplayer Mobile Serious Game. In between my bachelor and master studies I worked as an artist at Reality Twist. During that time I created the concept art and background illustrations for the German Multiplayer Mobile Game Utopolis.
