Very cool version of a manticore. Great work on the details and the colours really brings the whole creature together. Great work.

This is really good work, as usual!

It's a coincidence that you decided to draw a manticore as I was working on a piece featuring one myself.

I didn't know that manticores had wings and horns too, are there different types of manticore or did you modify the design?

Doesn't look like a tiger, more like a lion with bits added on. Though that is not impossible as the descriptions do mention the "body" of a "red lion." Though red lion sounds more like tiger than anything else.

I'm serious, btw. Manticore is the Latinized version of the Persian phrase, which does mean man-eater. Even the Romans, like Pausanias, thought it was a tiger that got messed up in translation. Now Pliny the Elder, he felt differently.

Enough of the cryptographic lesson, the "truth" of the beast doesn't detract from your skillful drawing and design.
