    This swap is for Mythical ZETTI Creatures!!! Same as my other swap only these have to be creatures and not humans. Please no thick embellishments and the main subject cannot be just made of sticker(s). Please ask if you are unsure what a zetti is, but this is the best description I found....

    Zettiology is 'Sustained Confusion.' When you look at Zetti style artwork you will probably notice animal and people parts being cobbled together into one form, with outlining and doodling all around to make the fusions not so confusing. This makes for original, quirky art that is a little fun or silly.
    Crafters often use black and white elements mixed alongside bright colours for their Zetti creations.
    You may also find whimsical words or sayings handwritten or printed in an equally whimsical font alongside a Zetti creature.
    Another way to think of Zetti art is to start with a human or animal figure (that is, with reality), then blend it with something fantastic or other worldly (that is, fantasy), such as adding wings to a child's body. Add in other unexpected details such as striped legs or cone hats to make the new Zetti creature even more incongruous.
    I guess you could think of Zetti as taking traditional ideas and blending them in nontraditional ways. You could take creatures you would doodle, then cut and paste them together at a whole new level. Use patterns and textures that contrast with each other as you form your new creature.

    So to sum up, ways I have discovered to make your Zetti art are:

    Aim to make the ordinary into something whimsical or from a fantasy world
    Use contrasting textures and patterns
    Use lots of bright colours but mix in some black and white patterns such as stripes
    Use mismatched faces and bodies
    Add body parts, clothing and/or wings to a creature who doesn't usually have them
    Give your creatures fantastic hats and crowns
    Combine the quirky, odd and whimsical to make a new Zetti creature
    Use lyrical, poetic, handwritten sayings or text/li>
    Use outlining and doodling to bring all sorts of elements together

    So, not just creatures like ostriches or frogs, but ones more like unicorns and centaurs?

    You can use ostrich or frog parts, but add horns, wings, vampire like teeth etc something to make it more mythical/fantasy like unicorns and centaurs
