Echidna The Mother of All Monsters

Echidna

The Mother of All Monsters

It’s Mother’s Day next weekend, so let’s honor the mother of some of the beasts we most like to draw! So Echidna and Typhon were sorta the “Legion of Doom” to the olympian’s “Superfriends”, a brother sister pair who together birthed some of the most famed beasts of Greek lore, including but not limited to, The Lernaean Hydra, the Chimera, Cerberus, the Sphinx, the Nemean Lion and the Gorgons. You know how these stories go, eventually good triumphs over evil, but no reason to assume there weren’t some great family times betwixt all that tragedy so…..

Draw her homeschooling a 3 headed dog, draw her contemplating a different, perhaps single life, draw her eating some babies on a family picnic (for that one probably important to know that Typhon was a 100 headed dragon that never sleeps), hell draw her learning to fly a biplane, we don’t care how good it is, so long as you have fun making it and there’s something vaguely snakey in there!

Technically she has the same descriptors as a Gorgon but let’s list through em right quick just in case.

  • Lower body is that of a giant snake
  • Upper body of a woman
  • Her hair is a mass of coiling poisonous snakes
  • She’s had a lot of babies
  • She’s legit married to a monster (who’s also her brother)…
    • reminder

      That’s what you got! Get your ass doodling, have fun and don’t forget to send it in!
      You’ve got til the 18th… And you can’t win if you don’t draw! So get going!

The best part about this is that it’s totally not wrong, the echidna is also an adorable lil hedgehoggy thing and what it can’t give birth to monstrous children? Though those look pretty cute and not multiply headed.

haha so I opened this one and I and my neighbor both exclaimed, cause that’s damn near the finest earthworm dress I have ever seen… Great, bored coffee house waitress posturing btw!

So knowing my buddy ken, this is a drawing about how much he enjoyed the minimal dialogue and Lovecraftian spin of “the Void”… analyzing it further, it seems there wasn’t quite enough nudity for his tastes and he found the ending a little derivative of the almighty Prince of Darkness. But definitely worth the watch! Crazy how a drawing can say all that!

The old, ever alluring, would you like to make some monster babies shuffle…. that or its just another picture of Opus, this time with boobs and a wig… I’m honestly not sure myself, but happy with both options!

I like it! It’s like the most horrific mistake from the strawberry shortcake factory is slowly getting eaten by a sea slug! Those slit eyed, colorful snakes officially made me lol a lil when i realized what they were!

Awww she looks like she’s just received a heartwarming present from a monster kid, I kinda love the gentle fertility goddess feel and if you just glance quickly… her faint mustache!
