original dragon, by ~arf, is quite remarkable the way the dragon heads are woven into the castle scene. Add to that the fire and you really get a sense of being overwhelmed by the onslaught.

Allow me to attempt to clear up this matter. This is not a Hydra. For starters, it has legs. The Hydra (unless this is the Disney Hercules universe) does not have legs. Some people assume that any Dragon creature with multiple heads is a Hydra, however multi-headed Dragons are not uncommon in legend. Furthermore, a real Hydra has a more serpentine appearance (though this does vary far more than the legs thing). This is all based on how I define these creatures of course, and I tend to hold the Hydra up to the original Greek myth.

Kind of reminds me of Orochi from the wii game Okami.

Original dragon? Are we talking the Devil himself? Revelations ?
Hydra-esque dragons are pure badassry, it's a shame they're not very common.

Great work!

I think it does look like a hydra yes, but the head thats sort of at the back and kind of getting pushed back looks singular.

If it were a hydra it would have fins and the such not spikes so it's a dragon or well, whatever you think cause it's your piece but it looks really cool!
