The second set of animals in my zoo (see earlier post).
I was having a bit of trouble trying to make the chimera's body different from the griffin's since they're both based on a big cat build. So I took a break and while viewing impossibly cute videos of welsh corgis on youtube, a stroke of genius hit...
I cut the snake head tail off to make it appear even more like a corgi, and also i didnt feel like drawing another snake head since I'm already doing a naga concept.
For the dragon, I didnt want to make it look too menacing. I like how hippos and rhinos, bears and crocs can all look really peaceful and lazy but can also be very ferocious. And also I gave it chameleon eyes just to make it look even more docile and goofy.
Again, the images are posted in the order I drew them, so you can see how the designs evolved.
**NOTE: i'm also editing my blog template right now so if something looks messed up, my apologies
