Chimera Hunt

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I have a list of about 10 painting that I want to finish before getting home in June, and this was the first checked off the list.  I had  a very sleepless night not too long ago, and instead of getting up to draw the first thing in my mind, I opened up a word file, and typed descriptions, and let the show go on.  This was one of the last images to come through my mind, and I didn't change much from what I typed.  I wanted to show a Chimera as an animal with an ecology, not just some beast to trouble adventurers.  I figured when you are a chimera, elephant would probably be the game of choice.  I used a limited pallet of 16 colors pulled from a photo of the Serengeti, and just mixed with those.
