Bow before me

"By the power of Ra
Mut, Nut, Khnum, Ptah
Sobek, Sekhmet, Sokar, Selket
Anumbis, Anukis
Hemsut, Tefnut, Meshkent, Mafdet...
You're playing with the big boys now
By the might of Horus
You will kneel before us
Kneel to us !"

Finally done with that Sphinx, I've been on this for days but couldn't find time to finish it >:/
Hope you enjoy it, also you may have noticed I've been doing a lot of high detailled pieces lately. I'm a bit afraid that's something the fanbase isn't looking for, tell me what you think about it. I'm tempted to continue my speedpaintings but I need to challenge myself a bit more

you come before me, she who spits
syllables proving that all are killable 
by the nonsencible gibberish that is only
legible or understandable by those 
who think not with the blades that strike
down the foes flesh, but the sword that strokes
with such a fluid motion that sobek  could recognize
it as something as beautiful as a trail of his own
precious Nile guardians.

I who speak like he in the words of they
that scramble your literature and capture 
the very beauty of the enigma  that might
put you in a maze that amazes the mind that can
not find the light beyond your weak perception of
what is might or was right, how humorous are they
yes they who desire to play with the masters 
that cast their judgement upon them and deem 
them as one i must bow to.  

But i need not call on my masters names or raise
my paw to flare claws that could rend you 
like the heat of day, oh no i only need simple words
put in an elegant diction without your pitiful syntax
or restrictions  for poetry  is a weapon that riddles
the psyche as it fiddles with the heart, and confounds
she who looses hope in what she stood for.

Authors notes: i thought about making a riddle form of this but i like it the way it is, it speaks of the power of words and that is what a sphinx stands for it is the proof that the mind is just as powerful as any blade and the Egyptian mythos is awesome

This kinda reminds me about the Rock puma chase in Dreamworks 'El Dorado' with the rock jaguar rising from the lava. Neato! :D

I like both the detailed pieces as well as the speed paint ones. Although, I do really appreciate a detailed piece of art work, so I think it's cool that you are doing them. But, ultimately you do you, and I will probably like it lol. =]

The Sphinx' design in the show was disappointing. The Sphinx was supposed to be beautiful. Alluringly gorgeous, in fact. DHX, I am disappointed.
