Thoughts of an Eaten Sun

Versus the Regal Skullhead

I like to doodle, and boring classes are no exception. Today, as I was in my Greek Myth class, I decided to do an adaptation of a creature from an image we looked at. The topic was Near Eastern Mythology (in order to compare to Greek myth) and I drew the creature Tiamat, which Marduk faces in the Enuma Elish. The name of this piece is silly, but I only care that I got something down.

I’m interested in what you have to say! What’s your feedback?

Edit:

I found the image I used for reference. I have several links but the quality is a bit iffy on some. Not all are quite te same either.
