chimera

My first day at Fantasy Animal & Creature Illustration @ SVA CE taught by Stanley Martucci. We had the oppty to draw a chimera from the photo references he brought in and this is my chimera. Can’t wait to see the finished rendering!

Chimera (according to wikipedia.org):

In Greek mythology, the Chimera (Greek Χίμαιρα (Chímaira); Latin Chimaera) was a monstrous fire-breathing creature of Lycia in Asia Minor, composed of the parts of multiple animals: upon the body of a lioness with a tail that terminated in a snake’s head, the head of a goat arose on her back at the center of her spine. The Chimera was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and a sibling of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra. The term chimera has also come to mean, more generally, an impossible or foolish fantasy, hard to believe.
