Chimera: (current submission)
Above is my fourth independent investigation.
The Chimera from Greek mythology.
"In Greek mythology, the Chimera is a monster depicted as an animal with the head of a lion, the body of a she-goat, and the tail of a deaon. Somtimes it has multiple heads. It is a child of Typhon and Echidna. It terrorized Lycia, but was eventually killed by the Corinthian hero Bellerophon.

From this website:
I got the following information that served as another source of inspiration:
"... The Chimera is also believed to breath fire...
"... A chimera may refer to any creation that is a hybrid or a single entity composed of two or more distinct entities...
The companion of the Chimera
In the drawing, is a character that my friend Tator Tot, or ~DeathByViola
, collab drew/gifted me
I finally was able to draw him in a serious picture.
Her digital drawing of him: [link]
I named the anthro Chimera Mikhael.
He has these following parts:
Ram horns, lion ears & mane, cheetah face markings, scorpion tail, bird wings, leopard spots, a griffon body (in an anthro-case: eagle hands)
-Prang, Crayola, Prisma colors, and Prisma Verithin colored pencils
-0.5 mechanical pencil (for drawing the picture)
-0.005, 0.01, 0.03 Prisma color pigment liners. (for outlining the picture)
I just wanted to incorporate both meanings of the word "Chimera." The actual Greek monster and the hybrid creature.
It was a fun piece to do :>
