Hydra

Hydra

Even within Greek mythology I could find ways to satiate my obsession with dragons. Or atleast something similar. I thought of the Hydra after remembering the movie Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief. I found this link and took some notes.

Things I noted:

* Rather than a dragon, as depicted often, it’s actually a giant snake body.

*The number of heads deviated between 5-100, it varied but 9 heads was seen as the standard.

*Heads, if cut, grew back. Some variations say two grew back in place of one.

*Couldn’t be harmed by weapons

*CERBERUS’ SIBLING?!? *has a Harry Potter moment*

 

With these notes I got a couple of ideas but haven’t totally decided on choosing to draw Hydra for my final character design. I may do some sketches anyway to explore the idea further anyway.
