Independent Investigation 4: Chimera by VampiricXsilenceX Independent Investigation 4: Chimera by VampiricXsilenceX

4. Chimera: (current submission)


:bulletyellow:Above is my fourth independent investigation.
The Chimera from Greek mythology.

Some info:
"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."
~Obtained from: www.pantheon.org/articles/c/chimera.html

From this website:
www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/chimera_(mythology)

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..."

:bulletorange:The companion of the Chimera
In the drawing, is a character that my friend Tator Tot, or ~DeathByViola , collab drew/gifted me :heart:
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)

:bulletred:Mediums used:
-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)
-Illustration paper

My Thoughts:
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 :>

It's fine. All I know is that they will be loved and given weird names like Mikhael ;w;
