MorganSMP: Sphinx

There are no words to adequately describe my frustration with this beast. I was going to place a causeway and temple from Khufu, but then I made this lovely road leading to the north bridge, and that intersected the path the causeway would take anyway. So now I’m stuck with the headless beast.

Sculpting in dirt is much easier than abusing a pick to change and replace and change and replace sandstone, or the other valuable things that will cover the dirt frame. It will be fully colored, or at least that is my plan, as it might have looked in its heyday. This is not a long dead ruin of Egypt, oh no, this is an alive and vibrant area, untouched by time and looters.

The scale bothers me though. The beast might end up bigger just to get the detail on the face that I want, but I don’t have a lot of room to work with. I left myself a little space though, so hopefully any needed increase won’t be too much.
