Something about her face makes me think of Sebastian from 'Black Butler'.

okay I gotta tell you something. 
I've never been into sphinxes. I really disliked them, to be honest.
But this picture is just so wonderful! It shows a creature of sheer beauty and depicts the character traits of sphinxes just so well *-*
You probably made me love them from now on <3

Hello ! I was wondering if it's possible to use this wonderful on the webzine of my writer's association ? It's called Génération écriture, and we want to make a special issue about writing tricks, planned for this summer (probably August). We are going to make it like a book of magic spells, with a fantasy creature for each part. I follow your work since a looong time, so I immediately thought that I had to try.
 

Of course we don't earn any money with this magazine, and we will give you correct credits. We won't make any modification. 

You can check our webzines here : fr.calameo.com/accounts/255967… (it's in french, but this way, you can see that we are giving credits to all the people who allow us to use their work).
Please, let me know if it's ok for you (I would understand if it's not), I'd reaaaaally like to be authorized to use it.


Thank you,
Tiphs

Not surprising, this. She's obviously the Greek sphinx. For some reason, I can see her as a librarian - and a lovely one, at that.

Harpy, sphinx... You should create more arts about not-so-monstery monsters, because they are wonderful.
