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!

Yes! I do believe we are looking at a genuine War Pig!… I personally had always envisioned a different telling of the Sabbath classic… but I mean look at those eyes, the armor plating and the poison mushrooms really help with the “poisoning their brainwashed mi-i-iiinds” bit :)

Man, and keep in mind this is coming from a guy with an enormous noggin, giant heads, almost always funny! Don’t think I missed that crossed bacon tat and my favorite part, if you were subtract the tusks, this looks a hell of a lot like our judge Ken!

Hahaha… potentially the best poison eyes I’ve seen on this site! I do wonder what life path leads you to being a catoblepas head lifter though… seems sorta like dreaming of being and underwater, shark dentist… Also your catoblepas’ body is adorable!

Man look at those adorably plump, hippo like, trotters! Plus such a floppy assortment of armoured back plates! If I didn’t know that cloud was poisonous, I might think about going in for a hug!

Now we’re talking! I mean… poison breath, wreathed around walleyed barrels of death! It’s not often I get to type a sentence like that… Don’t you sorta wonder if there’s a tiny piglet manning the turret? and such an adorably innocent stance!

Imagine a freaking whole herd of these, just slowly trotting along, poisoning the confidence of all those in range with that look of intense concern… I mean… I just woke up, and this one’s already made me feel I’ve done something wrong!
