Nice lighting, and a very fleet and graceful-looking gryphon!

Simply wonderful! I love the design and the look of the light on the griffin. I also love how you did the background, with the texture of the grass and the trees fading into the distance; it creates a wonderful and realistic depth to the piece. Superb job! :D

Ever since seeing Carmen for the first time, I seemed to have developed a thing for big gryphons! :heart::meow: Arousiag, eh? I kind of like that name. :thumbsup: How did you come up with it, if I may ask? =P
I seriously adore the Gryphons build here, so large in size, yet imbued with very slender & light feeling. :dummy: The background looks fabulous, and wee-bit mysterious too^^
The wings also look great with those gigantic feathers.:clap:

Thank you! :heart:
she was simply called "Lightbringer" before, but as I searched for names with that meaning I found this one ;)
I was mainly inspired by afghan and greyhound anatomy when I created her :)

beautiful names..I love this scene. It feels like the gryphon is still placed on top of the grass..and his feet arn't actually in the grass?....

But i love it!! SUCH a cool gryphon design. Envious!

I think there should be a bit more grass visible in front of her paws ^^; or maybe she is just a really light gryphon =p

Nice, will the book be in english too???? it sounds like my type of "far away, better than reality" book... though your gryphon design kinda reminds me of [link] , but it may just be me, and if you know of sergals, yes i like them...

The hind leg's shaded parts look a bit off, but otherwise really nice work. :clap:
The background is nice, and the grass even looks quite good. :)

Oh, the darkest parts there, now that I look at it, it do looks a bit 'straight', makes the leg look a tad too flat there ^^;

And also the shading itself os a bit striped and weird somehow. And it doesn't look like it's supposed to be like that.

And you're welcome. :)

Hmm, I had those 'lines' also visible in the shaded area on my other screen, but not on this one :? (guess it's setting is so dark that I don't see them)
not sure what causes them though, I saved it with the hightest JPG setting, hmm...
