    Meh, I'm in it for the fun. I'll be lucky if I make it to 2nd last...

    Everyone's doing ancient stuff. Greek, Norse, whatever else. I'm the only one to think up some shit from Scotland. Speaking of which, WIP 4 and extra one.

    WIP 4: Nearly finished. Just need to smoothen the edges.
    WIP 4.5: 9/10 finished. Just needs a background.

    WIP 4

    The goat head is usually placed right next to the lion head. Probably left of the lion head, from frontal perspective.

    actually I read that the lion is the normal head, the goat head is on the back and the snake is tha tail.
    I think i will do only one head with different features from both the goat and lion :)

    it doesn't have to be in colour no

    That's how the initial description of the chimera is, or the one from the legend the Chimera is in. Don't think I've played any games that used that concept though (which makes me kind of sad, really). Usually the Chimera is portrayed as a three-headed beast, usually with one of the heads being a lion's and the others ranging from goats, snakes, dragons, falcons, bulls, and any other creature that appears in some sort of hybrid creature. In one of the final fantasy's (10?) the chimera was a three-headed humanoid with a snake for one of its arms. That one was kinda cool.

    I think the word chimera can actually be used to describe any sort of creature that is a sort of collage of different critters.

    In medicine the word chimera is used to describe a rare phenomenon in which a person has two different DNA sets from twins essentially growing into the same person. They look just like anyone else and you can't tell unless you take multiple samples of their DNA to see if they have two different sets.

    Anyways, I'm liking the concepts I'm seeing from everyone.
    The Arachne looks sort of zombie-ish and creepy, which is sort of a good look for a spider.
    I like how the Fenris looks like a massive Hellhound.

    In the comic/manga/anime Full Metal Alchemist chimeras are kind of hybrids between humans and animals. Merged together through alchemy. So yeah, as chrome already more or less stated. Chimeras are (according to me and my conclusions) kind of a merge or a fusion of animals/humans.

    67chrome, Age of Mythology has "classical" chimaera, with the goat head being stuck somewhere halfway through the body. Either the goat head or the snake tail actually breath fire, too; which is pretty cool, but incredibly weird. Also, all of the fur, and body, is that of a lion.

    EDIT: Nevermind. Checked again. It's actually three-headed. Sucks.
