XGB: Ep02: The Sphinx by filbarlow XGB: Ep02: The Sphinx by filbarlow
The second show that went into production was "The Sphinx" which didn't go to air until late in the run for some reason. I based this design partly off sketches that Illustrator Everett Peck faxed through, and the hideous creature behind the mask was based off a sketch by Executive Producer Richard Raynis (I'll post that art at a later date). I have my own fascination with masks that I brought to the creature.

My pencils were originally inked in by Helen Maier.

This was a collaboration, so I can't take full credit for it, but thank you :)

Ahhh yes one of my favorites!  I actually liked the face quite a bit.  It gave the sphinx a bit of unsettling mystery.  The idea that this is a just a glamour for something worse underneath.

Yeah I'm glad you got the intention :)

Oh that was the intention? Very nice.  I was originally going to ask why you didnt put more greek design choices on the sphinx but then I remembered that the Greeks were influenced by the Egyptians.  Also I dont really know any ancient greek design motifs so its a moot point.

The riddle story came from a Greek myth, so I was attempting to link the Greek connection through the mask and the Ancient Egyptian connection through the head scarf tentacle things. The script had more to do with the Greek Sphinx than the Egyptian original.

Oh yeah I knew that.  Matter of fact the greek sphinx was female and was born from Echidna.  You know didn't even notice the mask bad on me.  He's a great piece of work.
