Taursenrion the Earth Shaper by noctem-tenebris Taursenrion the Earth Shaper by noctem-tenebris
The earth colossus Taursenrion. A mighty three headed beast that lurks within mountain ranges. It has the head of a bull, snake, and boar, it's back carries small mountains in which when it lays down can become a small mountain range of it's own. It has a 5 headed snake tail as well and one would do well to keep out of this monster's path.

What started out as a simple one headed weird bull sketch became something entirely new and fun thanks to the ideas that my love gave and shared with me. The ideas I sorta combined into one beast entirely but I do give thanks to my Love Luis for his little tips and suggestions. thanks love it means a lot :D

:new: to be clear......this is not Cerberus, if it was I would have named him thus. Nor is he a chimera...too small. Greeks do not own everything that is three headed. It is only a three headed beast.

This piece was really powerful when I first saw it, I really like the overall glow and aura I get from it. No part is too strong from one point so I don't feel over powered from the background/animal.

Well first off, I love the originality. Each beast has it's own details, it's own distinct features, which is really impressive! That makes the piece even better, rather than if you had a repeat of the same look alike head, so good job!

I also love the use of color, and how it doesn't COMPLETELY blend into one. In some parts I feel a bit of mixture of the beast and background, where you have to squint to see the difference, not sure if that was intended or not.

Personally, i felt the mountains/cliffs, or whatever the sides were intended to be, could have been more defined? They sort of just seem like blurs that are there, but then again, this is my opinion.

Love the little man and the huge size contrast with the beasts, really gives a nice look to the picture!

Overall it's a fairly well done piece, if there is anything you need to improve on it could be learning different coloring techniques for backgrounds and such.
What do you think?

he he is snarling at him for even daring to draw a sword. but I am glad you like the beastie I had a lot of fun drawing him.

haha well I don't know what gave him the idea he could take down such a massive creature x3 I'd get rid of all weapons and intentions of hurting him now if he knows what is good for him.
It's cool how it was just a bull head then turned into this! :D I like the originality of him as well. :) very cool combination of animals here ^^

thank you very much I am honored you enjoy it so. I did not wish him to be another Cerberus so with a few suggestions from my love, and some idea bouncing I managed to draw a beast with animals that have the worst temper on Earth. A bull,snake, and Wild Boar with snake head ended tails. So I doubt that that beast is in any way patient, lol.
