Mercurius Python as a three headed dragon. Based on a drawing from 1600 Germany. See the original drawing. My fantasy drawing, medieval drawing, German influenced drawing was created with watercolor and colored pencil on paper. The creature was simply too interesting not to replicate. Three bizarre sun heads, a bearded devil face on the breast, giant wings, a long point tail and two stubby legs. Hard not to fall in love with this cute little character. As you have seen I have been focusing a lot of attention on biblical, mythological creatures in my last few sketchbook Friday posts.
Each Friday at noon I scan in one new sketch or drawing from one of my many sketchbooks. Many times my sketches are ideas for larger projects that you might find on my fine art website William Hessian dot com, or as projects right here on my Bearded Bunny art blog. If you enjoy these sketches make sure to also see my Favorite 20 sketches from 2011 or go back and check out all of the sketchbook friday posts.
