Dark and Day: Chimera by nJoo Dark and Day: Chimera by nJoo
A Character done for *Jono-Wyer

They all turned around to see it.

The sky behind them, once filled with clear stars, was as black as death. Like a monster from a nightmare, the enormous beast had landed on the sharp mountain peaks that pierced the cracking ice around it. Its black mane spread around its lione head and rippled in the wind like flames. Tattered bat wings spread to cover the sky. Jagged horns lined its head, shoulders and back. Six black snakes splintered out of its tail and slithered along the shattered ice. Black fur cracked and teemed with white fire.

Jono couldn’t tell if it was organic or machine or both.
The three travelers were frozen with terror.
“The Chimera.” Alvin whispered.

Finally! Someone draws a Chimaera that DOESN'T look like the artist was on crack when he drew it! And what is up with the multiple heads of different animals thing?! I like Cerberus, but that rendition of a Chimaera is just freaky!

You know I never liked chimera or the versions of chimeras! The concept of multiple heads that are different from each other using the same body seems just way too silly to me!
This thing on the other hand......scares the living sh** out of me just by looking at it! And THAT is good thing!
What I mean to say is BADASS!
That is all.
