Personal Work: Chimera and Albatross Mariner

These were just some late night scribbles and drawings of a few ideas that came into my head, one being that of quite a timid and quiet young Chimera, that the goat body is 'controlled' and manipulated by it's conniving and scheming snake tail.

The other idea being based on that of the poem 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner*', in which a mariner shoots an albatross, which was a sign of good luck, and after when this does bring the ship bad luck, the mariner is forced to wear the dead bird around his neck. This idea is based more so that the bird continues to haunt him, becoming a more psychological curse, as well as literal, and continues to do so even so after the bird around his neck has been removed. A slightly cuter style was used to juxtapose the haunting theme.
