Has an Asian quality but yet is also very surrealistic. The explosion of red adds so much movement and brings life to an otherwise very monochromatic color scheme. Very strong work.

Is the bottom based on a saluki (dog breed)?

I think my inspiration was a greyhound but they all look pretty similar don't they

I just searched for saluki on google and your guess was very good, the sphinx looks even more like a saluki because of the tail.

Thanks!

Nope, I made it up myself. But I wouldn't be surprised of some kind of folklore like this does exists.

Amazing design for a sphinx. You kept many of the traditional elements, but the original touches you add makes it seem almost like a different being. I love her colouring too. It's definitely earthy.

The slight use of texture combined with the colour is so precise, it makes me smile. Your birds are the cutest little things, I wish I could draw them like that. I also love how simpley you explained the picture, so it leaves us to imagine a whole world of creation for this Sphinx.

And, overall, the petals turning into the little birds is such a unique idea, that you make me jealous :) A very very well deserved dail deviation.
