Hippogriff Doodles

Some doodles of hippogriffs. When I was young my brother was into the Warhammer miniatures and that's where I first saw a lot of mythological creatures. Their models have their hippogriffs like this so I've always imagined them with bird-like heads, feline forelegs and horse hind legs.

This may not be the traditional format but I like the nostalgia behind these hatchlings.

No problem! Ah, no I didn't. I did consider doing little griffin-like adopts but.... figured no one would be really interested in buying them. ^_^;;

Hippogriffs dont have feline parts.  Yes Hippogriffs are part Griffin and Horse and Griffins are part lion, but Hippogriffs are "eagle horses".

There are a lot of interpretations of mythical creatures. And as they aren't real I don't think there is any one 'correct' view. At the time of drawing these I was inspired by the Warhammer models my brother collected and they had this configuration.

Hippogriffs are part bird, part hooved animal (deer, horse ect) Griffins are Part bird part feline... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hippogri…  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Griffin  BUT saying that, I love the little owl ones on the bottom. <3

I really should update the description on this. My brother had always been into the Warhammer miniatures and that's where I first saw a lot of mythological creatures. And they do their hippogriffs like this. ;) warhammeronline.wikia.com/wiki…

Glad you still like them though.
