I’ve never tried to draw a sphinx before. Seemed pretty simple … cat body, woman’s face, wings.

The more I played with her, the fancier she became. And there was no reason to make her tiger stripes actually realistic, either.

I looked up all kinds of reclining tigers as reference for her body. Drawing a cat’s hind legs foreshortened and yet piled on top of each other is really difficult. Cats look like they’re a liquid that’s poured onto the ground.
