Sphinx

A sphinx (from Greek mythology -- female with wings).

Mostly I wanted practice drawing and painting rocks. I'm just trying to churn out a lot of art so that I am getting a lot of practice.

Pencil and watercolor.

I love the rock texture, and I think the Sphinx's mellow face makes it look interesting

Thank you! :) I loved painting the rocks, and the face has become sort of a standard for my sphinxes (I've done several sketches since, and I'm working on another painting).

I really do like the face! Not something I've ever seen before. :D Not to mention the detailing on the scenery. Epic job!
