Pen Sketchbook: Sphinx Guy

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

From my Pen Sketchbook Project: another example of the non-traditional-anthro things that I draw for myself. I've drawn these sphinx-guys for years, but never thought to post them; still, they're good examples of the weird things I draw for fun. You may remember my Sphinx-Fleur (Dandy-Lions) - the sphinx-things I draw are similar, but they actually have quite a background. I imagined them in a fanciful Scheherezade/Arabian Nights setting, or kind of a mix of Indian, Middle Eastern, and Egyptian cultures, with some advanced/futuristic technology thrown in, and lots of arabesques, tapestries, and arches, too. They exist along humans, but are treated as semi-dieties and often are High Scholars or Guardians. The males often have scorpion-like tail-tips, inspired by (if not appearing like) the Scorpion Men of ancient Babylon, though appearances vary. The males have names like Bo'Az and Bo'Atran. I would love to do more with them, perhaps a painting or two, but heck, these Pen Sketchbook sketches are from a while back and I'm only just getting to post them now; we'll see what the future holds. For more information on my Pen Sketchbook Project, please check it out at my website ( The pieces are all done with what little bits of free time I have. RSVP Pen.
