Zeus face to face with Typhon, mightiest of the storm giants. Typhon's appearance here is mostly based off of a combination of two different desciptions:

"Typhon was a mixture of man and beast, the largest and strongest of all Ge's (Earth's) children. Down to the thighs he was human in form, so large that he extended beyond all the mountains while his head often touched even the stars. One hand reached to the west, the other to the east, and attached to these were one hundred heads of serpents. Also from the thighs down he had great coils of vipers, which extended to the top of his head and hissed mightily.(Pseudo-Apollodorus)

" [U]p from his shoulders there grew a hundred snake heads, those of a dreaded drakon, and the heads licked with dark tongues, and from the eyes on the inhuman heads fire glittered from under the eyelids" (Hesiod)

Hey, thanks! I've actually been having an inactive spell myself, only got back at it just recently. Unfortunately I'm having limited access to the internet now and for the coming weeks but hopefully I'll have something new to upload soon.
