Truly amazing. Love the concept.

And what's the concept? You make me want to scream hipster at you.

The concept of the multiple eyes, different jawbones, and teeth that seem to be moving down the lion's mane. That part of the piece is very open for interpretation, and when I said "concept" I meant that sort of fantasy part of the piece.

Beautiful, I like the way it has three set of teeth.

are you going to illustrate all of the subjects of Herakles' 12 labours or just the lion and the hydra?

these were commissions, the client eventually wants all 12 labors but these are the first two that I've done for him
