Be confident, Atreyu! BE CONFIDENT!
Here is my updated version of the Sphinx from the 1980's movie The Neverending Story. I pulled the parts together from a variety of sources, and got what I think is a pretty faithful approximation. It's got a lot of textures, and will need quite a bit of support no matter which way you print it. The same models were used for both the 1st gate (orange) and the southern oracle itself (blue) Mirror it to get a matching pair!
Due to finding several people online selling prints of my design without permission or credit, I am no longer willing to share this model for free. It can now be purchased at GwydionsForest.Etsy.com for a small fee. Please do not make them to sell.
I reccommend printing with the face and wing tips pointing straight up- uses much less support.
