THE GOLDDEN CHIMERA by Rjrazar1 THE GOLDDEN CHIMERA by Rjrazar1
Inspired by the Chimera .this concept art was done with a MAC, a WACOM ,PSE 10, using a layer from two of my previous works the snakes, and Dren ,with a photomanipulated image of a gold chain as a textured layer my stock photos and work .
the Chimera is a monstrous creature that was composed of several different animals. The chimera is only one of several famous mythological hybrids. As with all mythical creatures, there is the question of its origin. In some traditions, the Chimera was one of the offspring of Typhon and Echidna and sister of such monsters as Cerberus and the Lernaean Hydra. However, the chimera does not appear to have an existence in physical reality, save for the individual animals from which it is composed.
While minor in literature, the chimera was nonetheless exceedingly popular in ancient art, and is featured in many depictions of epic scale. In pop culture, a chimera may refer to any creation that is a hybrid, or a single entity composed of two or more distinct entities. It is often used in television shows and role-playing games, usually as an obstacle for players to overcome. Thus, the chimera represents the most dangerous beast that the human imagination can conjure, taking those attributes of existing creatures to develop a new creation that is more difficult to overcome. The role of such creatures has thus been to challenge the hero to use bravery and strength in order to achieve victory.
