Sphynx by zimvader42 Sphynx by zimvader42
In greek mithology, a sphinx is a powerful being with the head of a woman and the body of a lion. I made this creature with the head of a pony (obvious) and the body of a lion (based on Gilda's body design).

Hello!

I've been planning an MLP:FiM fanfic for a while that will feature sphinxes loose in Ponyville. I've been searching for suitable cover art for a long time, and I think this would be the perfect cover for the story. Do you mind terribly if I use this as a cover art?

Cool, thanks! (It'll be a while before I get around to that story, I'm swamped, but I'll let you know when it's up. ^_^)

It looks a lot like the Purrsians from the Ponyfinder supplement for the Pathfinder RPG. Pretty cool.

Oooh. So you, and Equestria-Prevails :iconequestria-prevails: have both drawn these. I've recently come up with the idea myself.

Do you have a vector file for this? I wonder what this'd look like using the griffon wing-style instead of the pegasus wing style...

Sorry you, but this and practically 90% of my art disappeared when I had to reset my computer during the summer. It was a big loss. But if you want to draw your own sphynx, it would be great to see it when you're done. Also, do you have a link to Equestria-Prevails' one?

Yeah, right here: equestria-prevails.deviantart.…

I've never seen it tried with griffon-style wings, though, which is why I want to give that a shot.

Personally, I think griffons actually kinda look cuter than ponies. Just the featheriness or something, or the shape reminds me of a cat.

And alrighty, I'll comment a link on your profile page when I do :iconhappytsplz:

This is exactly what the villain in my fanfic looks like! In the story, she's named after the Egyptian Goddess of Magic, Isis! BTW, since her paws are similar to Discord's right hand, that means she can hold stuff like a sword, right?

Could I borrow Dramatic reading video?

I'd like to correct you. I love this but a proper sphinx has the head of a woman, Breasts of a woman, Tail of a snake, body and limbs of a lion and wings of a hawk. I applaud you because this is a great work of art, But you did the head of a pony intentionally, I understand that, But you made the eygption Sphinx, The two differ completely. But this is still good.

So, there are two types of sphinx? The egyptian and the other one (the greek maybe?). Thanks for the explanation.

Well I never imagined her as an evil character, but she's mainly vain and egocentric (at least inside my mind XD). Thanks for comment here.

Esa era la idea. Aunque técnicamente la esfinge es griega, pensé que le quedaría mejor un estilo más egipcio. Me alegro si te gustó.
