first real digital painting since quite a while...

Shows, Grips the little messenger gryphon (the same Grips as sitting on Evell's shoulder here: [link] )
all painted in Photoshop based on a rough sketch, background was created using the 'Craquelure' filter, which turned out acceptable ;)

FULLVIEW = :heart:

Grips (c) Äladhal and me

EDIT: made the 2nd eye visible ;)

My, my, do I absolutely love this piece! :heart:
Message for me? Eeeh, thank you! :D What I'd give to have a little gryphon like Grips delivering messages and letters. :D
I can't tell how much I love the lightning on this one. :heart: It just feels very soft, mellow and rather pleasing to an eye. :aww:

The 'Craquelure' certainly produces noticeable effect on the wall. Maybe I'll try it out too, if the opportunity ever presents itself.

Wonderful work as always, Lizkay! :clap:

Thanks a lot! :heart: ^V^
I would also love to have a little guy like him for bringing messages or just to sit on my shoulder and look cute :w00t: that would be great! :D
and I really enjoy light situations like that (and sunsets... XD) hard shadows and light edges *yay*

that craquelure effect is really useful if you want to make a painterly looking rock more "sharp" or just looking rougher and not too smooth ;)

You're definitely most welcome! :aww:

Oh, that would be awesome indeed =P Heheeee, parrots are soooo overrated these days! :D
I'm still pretty bad on different lightning conditions myself, but practice certainly makes one better at it. *Yeaa* I also love the hard shadows & light edges a lot myself and am fast getting better at them. :thumbsup::XD: *Though nowhere near your level at it. :) The level of detail and control is just so much better than in soft shadowing, methinks. I did try solely soft shadowing in one point and found it dimply not working for me. ^^; Well, I do use Gradient at some points though, for example the tail-, or eartips. :)

I see, thanks for the tip! :w00t:

Amazing shading, I love the atmosphere and the heartwarming sincere look Grips is giving the camera. I think people who are able to light and shade fur as good as you can are amazing.. I have no idea how you do that!
