Thank you very much! It makes me happy to hear that! :aww: 
Pearly conures have absolutely beautiful colors too! ^^
Thanks again for the lovely comment!

Thank you! I'm quite happy with this myself. ^^ 
It's way simpler than it seems though. The griffins here are literally just the color layers from my concept sheet (if you look at it, you can see which ones I picked for this painting) without the lineart (and scaled gigantic), all I had to do was to shade them like crazy (and paint a background). Doing that for all the feathers was tedious work though and took a while. Now I don't think I'll be painting feathers again any time soon. xD

Oh, you're right. But with this kind of shading it's much more three-dimensional. Well, the other deviation is more like a reference sheet, so it makes sense to colour the actual illustration like this instead. Anyway it looks great.  ^^

So, no new Cora or Doffy fanarts from you for a while?  :P

That's true. It turned out so well that when I zoom in I just want to touch their neck feathers. xD
And you are right, I left those without shading for a reason. It would make it harder for the developers to see all the colors and details if I had shaded the reference images. I even left some close-ups without colors for the same reason.
But this illustrates what they'd look in the game, so I wanted to make it as three-dimensional as possible (within the time limit).
Anyway, I'm glad you like it! ^^

Haha, as long as they can live a moment without their coats, they are fine! xD
Well, if I still had a computer that could handle drawing anyway. ^^"

At least I see that you can manage comments. I wasn't expecting all the replies to come now, but of course I'm happy you're able to write at least.  :D

What about traditional drawings? Or scanning drawings is not possible for you ether, right now?

Haha, I have the time to reply because I can't draw now. xD

The artworks on my list at the moment were meant to be prints at the upcoming convention, so digital art works better. Or they were works that I had already started and was planning to color later. I can totally scan traditional art. In fact, my lineart has been made traditionally for years now (the concept sheet was the only exception in a long time, that was fully digital), but I tend to color them digitally. I don't have much traditional tools left, because I usually only sketch and ink. Maybe there will be some more ink drawings similar to the little One Piece drawings I did on the ship though, we'll see.
I'll definitely try to continue my artworks on this laptop too, but I'm gonna be surprised if it doesn't freeze or crash immediately. xD

Maybe you should buy a new PC at this point, if you need to draw digital art for the convention. You don't need an expensive one for digital art unless you work with 1200+ dpi resolution files, but if you also plan to play videogames on it things get more complicated (and definitely less affordable)...  ^^'

Yeah, I'm definitely buying a new one. I tested this laptop for art though, and it seems to handle it surprisingly well, as long as I keep the number of layers limited. Only crashed once with Gimp during my test. So I'm not in that much of a hurry to buy a computer. ^^

Thank you! That makes me happy! :aww:
And I need to keep that in mind, because IF, by any chance, I happen to win the contest, this design will actually get created in game. It would be a skin though, rather than an entirely new mount, so you could change the appearance of any griffin (including any heroic or legendary ones that might be released in the future) into this tropical one. The skin itself would most likely be either heroic or legendary because of it's extreme rarity, so that would add a nice boost to the stats of the griffin.
The winner of the contest will naturally get that skin, but can also choose 5 other players to give the skin to (from any server). I'm such a loner in the game though, so I can only think of a couple of players that might appreciate it. I feel like you would really like it though. ^^
