Khalil and Sheba, two characters from "Desert Wings" a short story I had in my head for quite a while XD

This is also a little Thank-you piece for all the support, the birthday greetings, kind comments, faves, etc. etc. I've got over the last weeks, you people rock :heart:

Sheba is a gryphon type that could also easily appear in the "Blutfeder" series, as she is slender and rather tall, I even have a character mentioned there that looks a bit similar hmm...
So what's that story about? I mainly imagined a kind of 'scenery' a desert culture, where people, mainly warriors ride on gryphons to cover the huge distances and attack from a 'unknown perspective' etc. etc. it's not a real story, not even something similar yet, just an idea that came up in my head and is getting slowly a shape XD

Lineart and Colors done in Photoshop, based on a 4H-pencil sketch ;)

FULLVIEW is a good idea as well, BUT IT'S HUGE...

Animated Scene of this can be found here: [link]

Looked at the animated and this, but this looks like a quiet walking scene and not a run.

Wow beeindruckend *__*

Sheba(ich hoffe das stimmt jetzt xD)wirkt so stolz und majestätisch,gleichzeitig auch wirkt er auch so das er jederzeit angriffsbereit ist sobald ein Geräusch da ist x3

Sag mal..(wurdest wohl schon oft gefragt ^^; )Wie lange zeichnest du schon?

Lizkay Featured By Owner Jul 4, 2009  Professional Digital Artist

Jup, Sheba ist der Greif, allerdings ein weiblicher ;)
Puh.. schwer zu sagen, allgemein hab ich schon mit 4 Jahren angefangen, so 'ernsthaft' damit würd ich sagen seit ca. 10 Jahren ;p
