Celtic Sphinxes by eoghankerrigan Celtic Sphinxes by eoghankerrigan
This was a commission I got some time ago and have only got around to finishing recently. I kept putting it off because I was afraid of using watercolours. Thankfully my commissioner was very patient. Anyway, I sort of like how it turned out, hope you do too!

These are adorable! I always love it when a mythical creature is "taken away" from their original country and redesigned to fit their new surroundings. :3c
These look to be some kind of escaped ritual animals? Maybe there is a feral population of these beasts in the celtic areas... :D

I'd like to be able to give you more information about them, but alas they were the commissioners idea.
Up to interpretation that way I guess ;)

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges [link] (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

Glad you like it. But I'm afraid this was a private commission and done solely for the commissioner.

You could commission a new piece if you'd like ;)

I'm sorry but we are doing a free game for free... So we can't afford paying :(

i just love you solid work and style. those braids and wings look awesome just like the other details on the stones and all as well. i saw the process from your anime time up till now and i am amazed how well both matches your style. It is an interesting process and i look forward where this will lead you.

Very nicely done. And I understand being afraid of watercolors- they are a very unforgiving medium. :dead:

Yeah, especially trying to get the right tones and highlights. It's very difficult to make things look like they have depth.

Great monsters! Are the things on their legs bracelets or chains?

Thanks. They're bracelets. They love their trinkets.
