Ooooooh. She needs to be drawn (and painted) a lot more often.

This is beautiful! Love this so much
A person could easily mistake that for a real photograph from a distance. Or from two feet away from the computer screen.

If you did this without staring at a cat sunbathing you're even more amazing.

That is just fantastic! How realistic and beautiful! I love the shadowing and colors...wow, and it's like I could feel the texture of the branch!

Oh wow, the natural tones in this image has me floored! I am really adoring the muted atmosphere and the texture of the various surfaces. I also don't see granular scales depicted often, and to see them on those feet really makes me excited! This is the sort of color use I would love to implement into my own work, but we'll see. This image is an inspiration!

Keep up the beautiful work, and thank you so much for sharing this with us! :heart:

From the thumbnail it looked like you had managed to go to an alternate reality and take a photo of a gryphon! This is definitely one of the most realistic gryphon images I've seen. It's enough to fool the eye- everything is perfect. The lighting is believable and the textures are scrumptious!
