Heqet -- bigger, better, stronger, faster. NOT a Kanye reference.

According to Egyptian mythology, she's much more likely to have a frog's head, but that just didn't fit in with my theme this time around, so Heqet gets to have a giant frog instead. I think a little artistic license never hurt anyone... almost never.

Susanoo o Mikoto & Yamata no Orochi

I love the whole idea of magic swords and 8-headed dragons, so this was a no-brainer. Admittedly influenced by Luke Skywalker and Samurai Jack, which is one of the best cartoons ever made - repeatedly gorgeous and often hilarious, as eye candy I can't think of anything else that holds a candle.... at the moment, anyway.
