Sleeping Chimera



Having multiple heads means you're never taken by surprise.

Originally an idea I had for a monster book compendium competition (say that 5 times fast) and it also fit the topic for Illustration Friday: Multiple this week.

*Well my good buddy Jeremy Mohler threw down a badass color job on the Chimera so we're entering the competition as a team. I think he did a spectacular job. Jeremy nailed the mood of a big shaggy chimera lounging in the high afternoon sun. It would be awesome to get into the book but even if we don't it was a great exercise and a collaboration we've been talking about for awhile.

Very nicely done. The chimera is great, and I second the love for the lion head. It's just...so right. Glad to see I'm not the only one sending in a critter.
