Take your time, think carefully about the detail, describe your mythical creatures appearance, use powerful adjectives that will really help to build a clear picture of your mythical creature in my mind. If you have time you could start to describe the setting where you creature lives too.
I am confident that you will produce some great descriptions for the world to read.

- He had teeth like tombstones and eyes like the moon
