Alphabeasts: C is for Cerastes

A great new collaborative project is online, called “Alphabeasts”. The idea is that artists each week have a letter, and they must create a piece of art of a fictional creature starting with that letter. I’ve been looking for a nice, regular sketch sort of thing to do each week, and I think this will be a great challenge.

First up, since I missed “A” and “B” (I’ll go back), here is my “C” entry: C is for Cerastes. It is based on the Greek myth of the cerastes, a horned serpent-like creature. In fact, science borrowed the name “cerastes” for several types of real-world snakes, with horns above their eyes.

Here’s the entry, it’s ink, 5″ x 7″ on 140 lb. Cold Press:
