Weekly Bow Tie Guy: Chimera

Chimera (kīˈmi(ə)re)

I have had this on my list of Bow Tie Guys for some time. It is a complex creature and it took a while for me to get my head wrapped around how to draw it. 

The Chimera is a fire breathing creature from Greek mythology. Traditionally it had the head of a lion and goat with the goat's body and a serpent tail. In current iterations have the addition of the dragons head and dragon wings. I thought it was humorous to add the bulkiness of the lions front legs and the thinness of a goats hind end.
