The Poison Eyed Flying Pig With a Boars Head Too Big For It’s Body!

I think at some point it’s fair to ask how mightily high Pliny the Elder and his ilk were. Not that I’m complaining, it makes for damn entertaining beast drawing… I’m just curious how, what the modern world has pretty much decided was a wildebeest, ended up with the following, amazing, descriptors, which you are now tasked to draw with!

  • Has the body shape of a young pig or small ox
  • Has the head of a boar, so large and heavy that it always faces the ground
  • Some say, that if it could lift it’s head, it would posses a deadly basilisk like stare
  • Others say, only it’s breath is deadly (from eating exclusively poisonous plants)
  • I’ve seen descriptions that say it has armored dinosaur like plates on it’s back and alternatively, others that think those are folded wings
  • Possesses the blackened, bloodshot eyes of a killer, but pleasantly bushy eyebrows

That’s what you got! All I ask is you don’t try too hard and have fun with it! We’ll close off submissions for judgement midnight of Friday the 19th… As always, We’ll gather the judges council and pick one to win a shirt, so get your asses doodling!
