Sphinx by ScottPurdy Sphinx by ScottPurdy
Paizo

One of my images in the Mythic Monsters book.

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

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.

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 :)

I really love how the sphinx is this big block of golden color, but the wings connect her to the halfling's red costume elements, and the blue-green eyes connect her up to his blue eyes. It's really vibrant!

I have to wonder, is Lem (the halfling) worried because she's hungry, or horny?...

I love the perspective, and the facial expressions are spot on! The composition is super too, with the whole peice frames by her wings (she looks awesome by the way!). the little dude looks like he's doing as he's told...!

great stuff :)

wowww! is soo different from your classic pieces, and so cool at same time! the distorted viewpoint, btw, gives a really delightful drama taste to the coloured circus of shapes and suggestions this picture has..and it makes me intrigued of whats happening..what the guy s writing? what place is that? and the sphynx-style creature above him?
I guess that when an illustration makes the viewer wondering about the background story, it ,means the illustration reached his most ambitious goal, to really be evocative and to really tell a story, or better to represnt a particular momentum, the one who (thanks to all his elements armony) brings the viewer inside the world u r showing.

ok my enlgish is so bad , I know that. But I really wanted to say some good things to u, coz this pics deserves good things ;) congrats my friend!
