Catoblepas Picture

I think this is my first completed piece for 2011. Hooray! Used a photo reference for the coloration, which I think helped immensely with my poor lighting skillz.

This is one of my application pieces for the Alphabeastiary. Hopefully they'll accept me! It's the Catoblepas, a monster that won't bother you unless you bother him... if he is disturbed his mane will bristle, revealing his eyes, which kills the people who look at them (like Medusa or the Basilisk).
