Cool design, I especially love the back half, probably because of that tail :love:

That moment when you discover something you favorited a while back and become flabbergasted at the beautiful work before you all over again... and by 'you' I mean 'me'.
I love this piece :heart:

This is absolutely stunning. : O
It's always wonderful to see Gryphons made out of obscure bird species, especially ones painted this well.
I especially love how the front is completely avian, while the back is nearly fully feline, but they still blend together perfectly, rather than having bits and pieces of each species everywhere to make the mold.
Very well done!

What a fun idea! Takes a nice fun little play off of the traditional griffin. What other animal did you merge with the secretary?

Świetny design. Bardzo mi się podoba pomysł wykorzystanie sekretarza jako "bazy" do stworzenia gryfa.

Awesome. I'd probably have made the legs longer, and borrowed the cat half from a cheetah. Secretary birs are such leggy creatures, like storks. But the detail grade is fantastic, and also the painterly look of the background!

Thanks!Your idea is great:) I won't change this picture, but if I ever draw this gryphon again I'll base the hind end on a cheetah.

This is gorgeous, I love how realistic this Gryphon looks. I like the sense of motion you added with the position of the wings, and the lifted foreclaw. For some reason I really love how that simple background is working here. :D

This is amazingly well done! It looks very real. Love the design of the feline end which also matches seemlessly with the whole.

Interesująca kombinacja, muszę przyznać że jeszcze nie widziałam sekretarza jako gryfa. Obrazek ładny.
