Sphinx

One of my images in the Mythic Monsters book.

I used a fair bit of Art Rage on this one as an experiment.

" Yo, Sphinx. What has 4 legs, a tail, wings and is horny for my meat?
                                                               That's right, it is you, you bitch. " B-)

     But what kind of meat? Jeya smug icon

This is a visual representation of the feeling you get when you have to start (and finish) an English essay in a single class period.
Is he writing his will?  He looks like he might be writing his will.  That, or all the things which are NOT the answer to the riddle of the sphinx.

A bit from column A, and a bit from column B ;)
I, being of sound mind and sound body and faced with imminent and likely fatal om-nom-nomming hereby bequeath the members of my adventuring party with all my worldly possessions, to be divided according to whomever benefits the most from whatever item.  I also hereby leave the following warning to those who would follow in my footsteps:
DO NOT TRY TO TAKE ON THE SPHINX ALONE.
YOU ARE NOT THAT SMART. 
STICK WITH THE PARTY. 
THEY HAVE POINTY SWORDS AND FLASHY SPELLS WHICH CAN SAVE YOU WHEN SHOULD YOU ANSWER THE RIDDLE WRONG.  

Also, the three answers I gave were:
1) A cute little bunny tap dancing on a table
2) A she-dragon in heat
3) My mother-in-law

P.S.
DO NOT GIVE ANYTHING TO MY MOTHER-IN-LAW!

Think fast, Lem...

For once, Lem doesn't have someone else with him to fight the baddy while he's taking notes from an ancient artifact. The expression is priceless. The book is a good deal.

I love this. It reminds me of the NeverEnding Story. :D

He doesn't seem very surprised by the aggressive-looking sphinx. More than slighty upset, certainly. I loved the way his face tells a whole story almost by itself. I thank you for the peek.

If I remember correctly he's trying to solve the riddle before the timer runs out and she kills him :)
