Epic Cheeck out my piece Demons Bane on my page you might like it

I was watching an isekai anime, and one of the characters summoned an animated statue of a winged lion, the anime made a big deal out of it, spend several minutes focused on the animal and all.

But for me, it was the most boring shit I have ever seen "I get it, it is a lion with wings, big deal, we have been seeing that for decades now, is just a glorified Pegasus at this point".

And then today you submit this piece, it is a lion with wings...

But holly shit man, it looks so damn different, the pressure, the intensity, the atmosphere it does so damn much to it, it reminds me why I like chimeras in the first place.

So thank you for reminding me that just because you have seen something plenty of times, seeing it again doesn't has to be a boring experience.

HappytoDraw responds:

Thanks man! Feels great that you could feel the ferocious nature I was aiming for.

so it's like manticora or its have it own story?

HappytoDraw responds:

It might be a metaphor for the Babylonian Empire in a Biblical sense, but I’m not that well versed in that area to be completely sure. But that might be one of the creatures origin stories. You can also listen to the song and see what story you could make out of it :)
