Model sheets!  Here's character number one.  Front - Side - Back.

Looking back...

I've always had a fascination with the ancients - Egypt being in my top five for obvious reasons of awesomeness (is that a word?).  So many great things to draw inspiration from (pardon the pun).  Anyway... I especially love the notion of taking bits from different creatures and melding them into new ones.  So, I present to you my sketch of a jackal-headed lion.  He's one of several creatures I'm making model sheets of. More on that later.

*In case you're sitting there thinking... 'Hey, I wish I knew how to read Egyptian hieroglyphs.'  then I would highly recommend this.  ;)
