Beasts of Daniel
In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon, Daniel had a dream, and visions passed through his mind as he was lying on his bed. He wrote down the substance of his dream.
Daniel said: "In my vision at night I looked, and there before me were the four winds of heaven churning up the great sea. Four great beasts, each different from the others, came up out of the sea.
"The first was like a lion, and it had the wings of an eagle. I watched until its wings were torn off and it was lifted from the ground so that it stood on two feet like a man, and the heart of a man was given to it.
"And there before me was a second beast, which looked like a bear. It was raised up on one of its sides, and it had three ribs in its mouth between its teeth. It was told, 'Get up and eat your fill of flesh!'
"After that, I looked, and there before me was another beast, one that looked like a leopard. And on its back it had four wings like those of a bird. This beast had four heads, and it was given authority to rule.
"After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast—terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.
"While I was thinking about the horns, there before me was another horn, a little one, which came up among them; and three of the first horns were uprooted before it. This horn had eyes like the eyes of a man and a mouth that spoke boastfully."

Thanks for looking!
i thought that wing (?) coming from the lion was a hawk head without an eyeball or something. it's a little confusing to me compositionally. it seems to be growing out of his head/neck, if it were lowered i think it would be totally fixed and not so weird looking.
otherwise this is really pretty nice.
good job, brett!
thanks for the comments!
ginette, i do believe you're right. i should have caught that!
I remember this, glad to see it up! 5
you obviously put a lot into this
that reminds me, you still have my daniel and sons shirt. give it back. I scored it a 0, until you remedy the shirt situation .
Wow, that's an intense passage in the first place. I really like the monochromatic scheme and bear is my favorite piece of the illustration.
Really awesome texutres and overall design as usual from you man, it's just not a topic i'm really that into promoting on my chest. Still, nice collection of meanigful characters into such a small area.
