Great Sphinx by joy-ang Great Sphinx by joy-ang
A piece I did related to my comic in The Anthology Project Volume 2 [link]

Painted with gouache and touched up with pencil crayons & photoshop.

Disclaimer: In no way do I condone the hunting or killing of sphinxes.

This makes me sad looking at it, there's something said. Hope he keeps it instead of killing it.

How do you personally get the orangish colored outlines on there? Is that the color pencil part? Gouache with fine brush? Photoshop?

This is a great sphinx design. The color really sells it for me.

Was that red outline around the sphinx done digitally? Or was that done with the pencil crayons?

You're immensely talented and ridiculously attractive person... I'll pretend you have an annoying laugh, it'll lessen the stabbing sensation in my soul. I hope your getting deeper into industry work, and not having babies. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!

The real reason mythical creatures hide from us: way too many trouphy hungry people with no remorse or concern.

Poor sphinx... I kind of imagine him escaping, though, and flying free into the open skies after the hunter guy turns to yell something to his buddies who are most likely somewhere off screen.
