About My Design

"What do you mean, what's the answer? How should I know? Why do you think I'm asking?" said the sphinx a tad annoyed to the puzzled hero. This is Oedipus's Sphinx, the one that was asking everyone: "What walks on four feet in the morning, two in the afternoon and three at night?" She really wanted to know. This design is meant to be a figurine which could sit on your desk, give you sideglances and ask existential questions. And if you fail to give the right answer, it would eat you up! Or at least gnaw your pencils...

I love the flow of this design, as well as the twist on an old concept. I would love to have one of these on my desk to muddle through my calculus with me.

This is an incredible design. I love the style and the exaggerated features. I'd be all over buying this.

I don't know there's just something about this design that I love. I think it's the look on it's face or maybe it's the boobs. Could be the boobs. HA!

The coloring and facial structure are impressive.

And the neck says 'nah uh, you didn't!' to me.  But that's because I got the riddle wrong. ^_~

I really *really* really like this! Maybe it's my general love of sphinx characters, but I think your color choices are doing it. The front view gives an 'African' artist style to me (again, I think it's the colors) but the other poses add a neat depth, especially in the neck. Sort of Picasso-ish. Which is good, I think.

lyliko its a sphinx. if you look at the sphix she has 2 breasts, a cat body a human head and sometimes wings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sphinx


I LOVE this. I love the crazy proportions and style. the colors are wonderful and I like that the breasts are subtle and not huge and hanging. tasteful.

Love the style and wonky pose.

Very whimsical personality in this. Very cool.

Love the face, very interesting...great
Lyliko commented on 10th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I like everything but the tits. Humans are like the one animals with two tits. The rest have multiple.

Elfenn commented on 8th Jun 2010 (Report Spam)

I love the pose, especially from behind, it reminds me my cats !

Adorable little thing! :D

Very different design! I love it if it became a figure! Not very many people do the sphinx, She is cute and I give it a 5!
Penanggalan commented on 13th May 2010 (Report Spam)
This is just too cute and stylized, would be great as a figure! :)
2tk commented on 13th May 2010 (Report Spam)

Instant love.

Great idea, and for selfish reasons...because I own a Sphynx kitten(granted, she isn't this cute) and it be a shame not to have one for her to look confused at.


omg good luck

Jazzer commented on 9th May 2010 (Report Spam)
Hm. The neck is a little too strange to me, But other then that it's a pretty nice design.
Snikill commented on 9th May 2010 (Report Spam)
Even though its not your typical sphinx [ which is a good thing btw] it looks really rad and cute.

I love the flow and colors of this. I could definitely see myself buying this toy if the scult looked right and the paint job was good. I really like the funky style! Hope you post some more work!
