...long time no real 'gryphon'-art over here ^^;

I think I started the sketch of this almost a month ago, finally had time to work on it's details and colors. ;)
I also wanted to use the photos of the marble and the various decor objects I took when I was in rome last year for an image :)

The gryphon itself is something I wanted to do since quite a long time, a character with a fur that includes most common fur patterns all together, means stripes, dots, etc. all together :D

Hope you like the outcome :) FULLVIEW = :heart:

Hi!
I am actually working with a 5 year old windows computer and a old Photoshop version that isn't available anymore, and a Wacom Tablet, I can't really tell any info about costs cause all those things are pretty old ^^;
But it's not really the tools.. you can definitely get the same art result like I did here with a free program (GIMP for example) and any tablet that is available ;)

I like how the dots change into stripes. It's kinda soft.

Woowh, it's great to see some Gryphonic art from you! :la:

This one's such a powerful and atmospheric piece! :heart::aww: I very much like how you did the lightning and the background, it is brizzling with great detail, especially the pillow on the ground. <^v^>

The Gryphon looks wonderful too with a variety of fur markings and patterns put together. :meow:
I also very much love his subtle expression and pose. :love:

This may just be your best work yet , Lizkay!

Thank you! :heart:
Making this wasn't only fun it also made me really happy :D and it's been a while since one single art piece made me happy like that ^^;
Also wanted to create a gryphon with a mix of all common fur patterns since ages, now I finally had time to do so :w00t:
and I have more gryphon art coming, just would need more free time to actually finish them :blush:

Owh, you're most welcome as always! :heart:
I'm glad to hear this piece made you so happy alright. :D I think that the truely successful art piece is only measured by the fact if it makes you genuinely happy doing it. ;p

It really must've been great much fun on experimenting with multiple fur patterns too. :meow::aww:

More gryphon art coming you say? You know I just can't wait for that! :love:

I like the non-wing concept better. This gryphon looks agile, swift, limber. Probably better running on ground than flying.
Incredible work!

guess the common gryphon has wings ;)
would call them different but there is no real word for a gryphon-like species without wings and it's mostly used for hybrid creatures with bird elements too :)
