I'm writing a fantasy romance series and wanted a unique character for my second book. Since I've always loved the Manticore character, I decided to see if I could find any art out there of a more humanoid version. This is SO perfect. My character is a bit more humanoid in the face and hands, but this is very close to what I had imagined. Great job!
A man who humbles himself in all things, shall by grace be rewarded. For as a humble man strives in his work, the angels are inspired by his grace. And though the man toils for what may seem a pittance, he builds his wealth in the heavens. And sometimes by grace the gates are opened by faith. You do great work, and now may the gates be opened to you.
Pishaw my good artist! You are very modest and humble. I feel that quality will take you far in life. Even more so than your amazing art skills! Besides, you're very worthy of the comparison IMO.
