Hybriding help
« on: May 18, 2008, 02:23:57 pm »
I am currently working on trying to make a hybrid for my acount (a panthion). But currently it looks wierd and I can't get it too look right. Any advice?

(BTW a panthion is a patnher/scorpion.

Hm, difficult one.

I would use the panther as 'starting point', meaning that I would go for a panther with, for example, scales here and there (frontpaws, perhaps some on his back, etc.).

I would definitely use the scorpid tail (instead of the normal panther tail, for example).
You can also add the pincers - you could go for a more centaur-ish panther in that case (panter-lower body with scales and pincers instead of arms?).

Just a couple of random ideas; hopefully, there's something useful up there :D

Anyway, good luck and looking forward to your new hybrid!

I was thinking panthion = panther+lion.  Perhaps scorpanther or something would be better.

Anyways, you could try a google image search for "scorpionman" to get ideas of how scorpions have been mixed with humans. That help you decide how to combine one with a panther. (I'm assuming this is an anrtho. If not than this advice is probably not so useful.)

BTW, pantheon (with an e) is a Greek temple of the gods. Maybe completely unrelated, but thought it might be interesting to note if you wish to use the term "panthion" since it sounds very similar.

Actually the resemblance to the greek pantheon was part of the reason I went with Panthion instead of Scorpanther
