Had so much fun painting this! Thanks everyone who were watching me paint in Livestream today and all!

Anyways! At first this was coing to be totally random art about a tiger. I had tiger refs and pictures in front of me but when I started sketching I got an idea of a male sphinx! I have never seen one painted before and wanted to paint one. so I started. After few hours of painting I got an idea from my friend that I could draw little flame inside that lantern. It became a little will-o'-the-wisp!
Now there is random ninja samurai male sphinx guarding his dear will-o'-the-wisp. This couple makes an awsome character and I may even draw them more. :3

Photoshop CS3 and Wacom intuos 4
it took 9 hours in total to paint. all done in one layer

Cool concept behind this picture. I don't think I've ever seen a male sphynx, either. Good job :3 You should draw more of him.

One layer, ARE YOU CRAZY?! o.O I like that there could be story behind this, because of how much character that sphinx has. Well done!

Sweet! Although I do wish I could see the rest of his face, the ninja-mask makes him look pretty badass.
