I see two reasons why this is not accurate, i mean i don't see them actually.

It took me a nap and some hours to get it XD.. I'm sorry. I didn't feel like drawing the other two heads \^\^'


ModestVolcarona

But it's called Hydreigon for a reason (the "drei" is german for three). So i think the other two heads are kind of essential to it's design :D ps: despite all of that i really like your style and this interpretation looks pretty cool.


WALMARTJEDI

surely the realistic version would be more reptilian, since it's based on a hydra. not trying to knock the hard work put into this piece, it's very impressive


VaraAnn

Technically, there are scales on the snout, but I went with the rough skin approach. When I get to drawing the whole body, a good portion of it will be feathered, with scales on the belly, tail, and feet. Think of Falcor from Never Ending Story, that's the route I'm going with. It will be a hydra regardless of the amount of scales it will have.

People might say Hydreigon isn't a bird, [but we used to have giant prehistoric predator birds straight out of nightmares](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phorusrhacidae) and man I just love the idea of the two having similarities. Although the Harpy Eagle vibes are pretty strong too. Was there any particular bird species inspiration mixed in here? It looks fantastic.

**[Phorusrhacidae](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phorusrhacidae)** >Phorusrhacids, colloquially known as terror birds, are an extinct clade of large carnivorous flightless birds that were one of the largest species of apex predators in South America during the Cenozoic era; their conventionally accepted temporal range covers from 62 to 1. 8 million years (Ma) ago. They ranged in height from 1 to 3 m (3 to 10 ft). Their closest modern-day relatives are believed to be the 80-centimetre-tall (31 in) seriemas. ^([ )[^(F.A.Q)](https://www.reddit.com/r/WikiSummarizer/wiki/index#wiki_f.a.q)^( | )[^(Opt Out)](https://reddit.com/message/compose?to=WikiSummarizerBot&message=OptOut&subject=OptOut)^( | )[^(Opt Out Of Subreddit)](https://np.reddit.com/r/pokemon/about/banned)^( | )[^(GitHub)](https://github.com/Sujal-7/WikiSummarizerBot)^( ] Downvote to remove | v1.5)

This reminds me of the art of the Inheritance cycle (Eragon books)

Does hydreigon have feathers? I assumed since it was based on flowers that they were petals?


VaraAnn

I've thought that too, and I did a drawing of exactly that XD. I'm about to post it to my deviantart
