I tried to post this a couple of days ago, but dA seems to be experiencing issues and it wasn't showing up in message centers, hopefully it will this time.
Illustration done for the new Ancient Greece themed card game, Monstrous.  I was invited to work on creature illustrations for this project along with several other extremely skilled illustrators including JohnSilvaTheRafa.  I hope you guys check the game out over here.

Hi Arvalis, I was looking for a image of a many-headed monster for a Facebook post. Is a single post for a page I'm starting. I make no money of it. May I get a permission to use this image from you?

I'd never really considered a moray eel as a base for a hydra, but it really meshes together perfectly!
