“When it sneezes, it flashes light! Its eyes are like the red of dawn.
Lightning leaps from its mouth; flames of fire flash out.
Smoke streams from its nostrils, like steam from a pot heated over burning rushes.
Its breath would kindle coals, for flames shoot from its mouth.
Job 41:18-21 (NLT)
The Bible is full of some fantastical creatures, with Leviathan being one of the biggies. I always wanted to do a piece representing this creature, and since it is a favorite creature of a friend of mine (whose birthday is in July), I decided to see what I could come up with. It was a tougher task than I thought it would be trying to find the perfect images to represent this behemoth (oh wait that is the other guy) of a beast. I ended up going with a mix of a Lionfish and an moray eel. One day I would like to revisit this piece and see if I can come up with something even more outrageous. Thanks Sue!
