Maneater by KanaRae Maneater by KanaRae
In Ancient Greece, the sphinx guarded the passageway to Thebes, stopping travelers with a riddle. If you didn't answer correctly, then the sphinx ate the traveler. This however, is an Egyptian Sphinx, which simply is a guardian and not a man-eater per say.

In short, a non-violent sphinx guarding the passageway to...

We have to make a poster to promote our senior thesis show, using our experience with our thesis as the base for our ideas. The theme I chose for mine was something along the lines of "an achievement to conquer." so I thought the sphinx was a fitting symbol of a majestic roadblock and it's Egyptian heritage made it a respectable figure rather than a man-eating monster.

In short: complete your thesis with grace instead of failing miserably under the pressure XD;; or something.

random size note: this version is 900 pixels in height, but the original file is 12k pixels in height. X_x;; kill me now.

Thank you :D I think the wings need a second pass, but feathers are one of my favorite things to draw.
