Gryphon by DarciGibson Gryphon by DarciGibson
I wanted to create a realistic looking Griffon...so I scoured the library for pics, put them all together and vuala...LOL! A bit more complicated than that, and a lot of blood/sweat/and tears BTW. I lost a years worth of digital art work starting this project (I will never forgive MAC computers! EVER!!!!...ehem).

wow, I love the detail! (from what I can see, for some reason full view isn't working today on DA) I find digital art to be completely difficult, and this is just amazing. The color scheme is especially perfect. It's so realistic, I really appreciate artists who can do something I can't. :)

I don't know - I still have soooo much I need to learn on all programs - and I need to learn to take more time - which is the one thing that bugs me about oekakicentral is the time limit.

But even on photomanips - I rely a lot on my drawing ability -- what you did with this picture is so utterly amazing to me - I've never seen anything that I would even consider close in comparison. -- how you got everything to match - proportions and colors and everything - it's just gorgeous

So you have a lot to learn...so do I. I wouldn't have even known how to even go about doing fur if you hadn't shown me.

Of course you rely on your drawing...its your strong suite! You'd be silly not to!

I could show you what I did one of these times. It wasn't that difficult. It just took time and patients...

I would love that -- we could start scheduling get-together time to work on programs -- what was that program you wanted me to look for again?

I'll email you, but don't feel obligated to find it. If you happen to come across it, it could be good to have it again.

very good.
i mean, really very good.
the detail is ridiculously abundent. the colors are hard but forgiving, and welcoming - cause earth tones usually are.

YES! The Griffon! I /love/ this guy, and always have. You did a great job with it, and it looks just as good today as it did when you first started on it.

Feels like forever ago! Glad to see some work from ya on here, bud! :>

Down and gone,
