I often wonder when looking at an animal what they would look like if they had five legs or wings or a beak instead of a muzzle. And why don' they have like six eyes or just one. If you're wondering, there is a name for this. It's called Chimera.
Chimera is a mythical creature composed together of the parts of multiple animals.(wiki) It's also a medical term for an organism consisting of two or more generically different cells. But we won't get into that cause it's freaky. :) I found a great tutorial from LemurKat that explains animal chimera in detail.
She is also having a new species swap at AtcsForAll and here are my sketches.
ungulate's hind legs and some mythical front legs. On the right we have a frog with monkey's tail and tortoise's shell, fox's head and snake's tongue. What do you think?
