i started this picture a couple of weeks ago, not aware of the upcoming solar eclipse. i'm glad i managed to finish it today.

i got to see today's partial solar eclipse as well as a live feed of the total eclipse over at Faroe Islands and in Svalbard. it was such a breathtaking sight. wish i was there.

Very cool! :D Sphinxes are underrated, and they make excellent god-like figures. Great work on the expressions!

I'm getting a Hindu vibe from this sphinx (it is a sphinx, yes?). I like the elongated hands and feet, and leg pose that suggests a monkey (not to mention the tail). Cool twist :)

thank you (both for this comment and the other ones you've left me), that's very encouraging. it always feels a bit risky when i decide to try an unfamiliar theme or make a change in style but i'm really happy it's received so well =)

Ahhh that's so rad that I could encourage you -- even if just a bit! I think you pour your heart into your art and it's hard not to be washed up in it. Can't wait to see more of your work! (Also you're very nice omg)

Please teach me your ways senpai... :icontearyguyplz: This is...just so beautiful. The scratchy lines, the high contrast of darks and lights, and the overall concept is so stunning. I especially love the gold, such a beautiful color pallet! Really gorgeous. :heart:
