Another Caradorian critter for Kenton and Rebecca Whitman, denizens of the realm of Carador. This is not your typical Greek mythology chimera, as you can hopefully tell. Caradorian chimeras are, according to Kenton and Rebecca...well, then can be lots of things, it seems, except fuzzy and cute. This was sort of a problem for me, since I usually have trouble trying to draw anything that doesn't come out looking fuzzy and cute.

Well, hopefully I succeeded. Even if the background (an the critter itself, now that I look at it) came out looking like a frame from an animated movie.

Oh, and he tells me that his name is Edward. He says that the human remains at his feet are just for scale; he says he really wouldn't hurt a flea.

Colored pencil and pencil, colored in Photoshop w/Wacom.

This guy may not hurt a flea, but that's probably because it's too small for him to see. It's highly likely that he would hurt everything else.

Ehm. I meant "almost entirely grey". Of course.

It's a really nice creature, and I especially like the teeth and the background, but isn't his colours a little too sharp? Especially the feet the furthest from the moon should be almost entirely black, since the moon can't shine on them. Great work, though!

Those mountains are awsome! The Chimera doesn't seem to be casting much of a shaddow though.

What’s wrong with looking like a still from an animated movie? I’d love to be able to draw stuff that looks like a still from an animated movie.
Would Edward like a cookie, or would a steak be more his style?
