We have an impressive list of artists involved on this set working on both base/promo cards and sketch cards. Set scheduled to be released in early Spring 2012.
PLEASE, NEGATIVE CRITIQUES ARE NOT WELCOME. THESE ARE ARTISTS INTREPRETATIONS. DESCRIPTIONS ARE BASED ON VARIOUS STORIES THAT ALL DIFFER FROM VARIOUS SOURCES. THANK YOU.
This awesome sketch art card of the Hydra from Greek Mythology is drawn by the very talented artist Nestor Celario Jr. for our Classic Mythology trading card set.
Lernaean Hydra – Greek Mythology – The Lernaean Hydra was an ancient nameless serpent-like water beast, with reptilian traits, (as its name evinces) that possessed many heads — the poets mention more heads than the vase-painters could paint, and for each head cut off it grew two more — and poisonous breath so virulent even her tracks were deadly. The Hydra of Lerna was killed by Herakles as the second of his Twelve Labours. Its lair was the lake of Lerna in the Argolid. Beneath the waters was an entrance to the Underworld, and the Hydra was its guardian.The Hydra was the offspring of Typhon and Echidna, both of whom were noisome offspring of the earth goddess Gaia.
FAR OUT! WOW
Excellent Drawing of Hydra, I loved it
