... in life which should make you happy

a beautiful sunset, a spiderweb glittering in the morning, a nice shape of clouds, a beautiful flower, a little bird singing in front of your window...

---

I got a new digital camera and finally discovered how to make makro and texture filled photos, the detail of this new "tool" is amazing! I can finally take photos which have enough "information" to use them digital, so the background of this image is a adjusted and painted over photo I took, the original photo can be found here: [link]

The little gryphon, is supposed to be a Blue-Tit squirrel gryphon and painted up from scratch, digitally in Photoshop Cs2 using a Wacom intuos tablet, I painted the little guy in daylight-colors and adjusted him later on to fit to the night mood, I think I wil upload the daylight version as well.. later maybe. ;)
hope you like, this was really fun, painting isn't really my "thing" but it's some nice training in between ;)

FULLVIEW is healthy ;)
Hope it doesn't look too dark.. my screen has a really light setting..

This looks really impressive, I love this image. Wonderful work with the details in all the feathers and really impressive work with the colors and the lighting and shading.

Painting isnt your thing? Bring mich bitte nicht zum lachen, aber sowas hier sieht man nicht alle Tage und es ist richtig toll! Ich frage mich immer noch, wie man das so hinbekommt....hrm, schön gemacht. ^^

Dankeschön! :D
Ich selbst hab trotzdem beim zeichnen und vor allem Comic-sachen mehr Spaß als beim "painting" aber das liegt wahrscheinlich auch an der fehlenden Übung ;)

Awww... that is soo cute! Too bad the background is a photo. It would have been perfect if you had drawn it out yourself.
But I really like the small blue tit squirrel thing. How it just lies there sleeping wants to make you take it up and cuddle it. I hope for it's sake though, that it won't be seen by a predator. It should sleep higher up in the trees where it's safer next time.

It was the challenge in there actually to put a photomanip together with a painting, actually even half of the photo is painted new anyways, (because it was a daylight shot) ;)
Oh I hope this little guy has some good claws or at least a pointy beak to defend himself.. but actually.. who could hurt such a CUTIE anyhow? :heart:

Well, if you like it like that, I can't really say anything, can I? :)

As to who would hurt the little guy: nature is a cruel mistress... unfortunately. And... mmmmhh... he does look tasty...
