Nemean Lion (WIP)


This is my loose interpretation of the Nemean lion from the Hercules mythology.

This version of the lion was cursed into his current form; body, mind, and language of a man, with his former fearsome leonine head; before Hercules came to find him.

  1. He looks great.

    Will Hercules win this one? =P

    1. Thanks! And I actually do usually have an alternate ending in my Hercules tales, giving him a chance to win. I'll have to see about it later on.

  2. Oh, hell yeah!

    And I definitely think you should skew from the source material with the outcome of their battle!

    1. I'm not sure when I'd attempt a story like this, but I'm a big fan of 'what if's in tales!

  4. Awesome! Nemean Lion never been so manly and virile as now! I would love to see him have a "rematch" with Hercules and detonated off with the snobbish little son of Zeus sexually, and the fucking with Hercules in bed, so many times, he would beg to Nemean Lion stop thing he NOT DO until Hercules was completely sexually demolished and turned into a "sex toy" of the Nemean Lion.I would love to see a story with a "sex fight" between the two.Too bad I'm not me who decided it. But either way magnificent artwork. I would love if you make more men beasts Barbaric Brawn as this was fantastic!

    1. Thanks for your comment and kind words! I do appreciate that.

      I always love working with Hercules in tales, so when/if I attempt this, it'd certainly be fun. :)

  6. Nice work! I wrote a short Nemean Lion story with an anthro version about a year ago!

  7. Hi, why you didn't do this fight with the nemean lion as just a lion?

    1. Hello! I didn't think the fully-beast version of him would've been interesting enough. I might try it someday as a recreation of one of the old paintings of the fight, but for now this is what I wanted to do with him.

    2. As a big fan of Hercules, I remember once to view in your site some pics of Hercules killing a lion naked or a version with a tonga. He is in a cave and with a club, where can I find that picture again? Just curiosity anyway, how would be a story with Herc and just a lion, similar to that one you wrote?

    3. Sorry, I think you might be thinking of a different site. This is the first time I've done anything with Herc and the Nemean Lion.

      I'm not quite sure how I'd approach the story if the lion were feral, actually. It's something I'm not very interested in trying so I'd have to think for a while how I'd do that.

  8. Amazing! Such a hottie. Hey, could you draw him naked? I think it'd be pretty sexy!

    1. Thanks for the comment and suggestion! I kept this character in particular in trunks as a way to keep it going too far out of worries it'd be misconstrued as a feral animal. When I'm able to craft a slightly cartoonier version with new eyes in the future, I'll take another look at making him naked.

      I appreciate the feedback! Thanks for the compliments. :)

  9. Eh, I think ''draw'' isn't the right word, yeah? But anyway ^^'

    1. It is being drawn in a sense, so you've got it right. :D
