Chimeras by daekazu Chimeras by daekazu

Another art challenge by :icondaekazu:, :iconmidnighttea7:, :iconvinegar: and :iconmaudt:!

For each challenge we interchangeably give ourselves an idea or topic to illustrate and a short, specified time to execute it in whatever shape or form... of course, without knowing what the others are going to come up with.

This week's topic is MidnightTea7's idea: "Chimeras - draw a fantastical creature made of more than one real species."

***

My first idea. :)  Not exactly typical Chimera, but still is mixed with lion, goat and snake! :) 

SAI + a bit of PS CS 
+ references!

That is not what a chimera lookskike. you can't just put any comb8nation of lion, goat, and snake parts together and call it a Chimera.

Actually, by all means he can. As it is an 'artists interpretation' as a start. 

Secondly, throughout history that are different ideas of 'exactly' how certain mythical creatures look. Yes the Chimera's tail is supposed to have the hair of a snake and the goat head often comes out of its back. But this interpretation is a lot easier for the human eye to comprehend.
