Polyphemus the Shepherd by WonderDookie Polyphemus the Shepherd by WonderDookie
The cyclops Polyphemus from The Odyssey tending his flock.

I once read that the Greeks based the cyclopes off of elephant skulls, so I wanted to show a bit of the elephant influence in my design.

You're right about the elephant-cyclops relationship and it's so cute XD

Yeah, you can really see it when you look at an elephant skull too. That'd be really confusing to see out of context.

haha. Thanks man! I thought it would be funny to juxtapose them with the big ugly looking cyclops. Unfortunately they also sort of look like an afterthought (which they really were...)

haha. Yeah. It's pretty cycloptic. I saw a mold of one at a zoo when I was a kid. It was almost creepy.
