Fresh from the drawing table... Chimera!

I have for you today another drawing that I finished up this week. This time around it is a Chimera! Abominations are so much fun to work on. A classic monster that still lends itself to being reinterpreted and seen anew.

The classical Chimera description and arrangement of animal parts is rather freaky in my opinion. I am all about weird abomination that flow and form together into something new, but a goat head smack dab stuck on the back of a lioness ...FREAKY! Makes no sense, hard to get your brain around. I can only wonder what this thing smells and sounds like. Whatever it is, it can't be good!
