"A lord of monsters, bringer of quakes, and conjurer of storms.
He is a Thanatos of the deep,
and his destruction is without prejudice.
Lord Typhon blindly consumes all."

Wonderful interpretation! Great anatomy. Wish I could see more Greek myth from you!

Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoy it.

And actually, I just finished a 7-issue length script for a graphic novel revolving around the myth of Hades and Persephone. It'll be a very different take, but I'm very excited to start on the concepts and visual development. So I promise there will be plenty of Greek myth in my future. :)

Now that is a wonderful description of Typhon, as questionable of a demeanor that he had. Overall picture outstanding. Nice to see the change from the typical serpent/snake tails to something more practical and fitting his attributes.  Unique and just overall well done!

While the serpent tails are more accurate to Typhon's ancient description, I chose the octopus tentacles as a reflection of the watery nature of storms, being a malicious God of storms and monsters. I'm very glad you like my variation. Thank you. :)

Yes Typhon was always described "serpent limbed." But to me, your vision makes so much more sense.  Again, well done.
