~ The little gryphon would sleep all days to be able to spend as much time as he could with his dearest friend, the moon. Unlike the animals in the forest, the moon wouldn't bother him with constant chitchatter and instead listen when little gryphon wished to speak. But most of the time they would just enjoy the scenery together, in silence. ~

and what lovely scenery it is... all of this picture that is neither sky nor gryphon is my favorite ;) I dont have a problem with the sky or the gryphon at all but the foggy lake trees and the lovely orange grass and the birch tree coming up from the bank..... all wonderful!

It is very, very pretty. I really love the gryphon's eye. So sad and longing.

Just for fun I had some old 3-d glasses on and wow does that sky just pop open with it. <3

I really like the bottom part of this painting, the colours, plants and rocks look very realistic and well done. However, I feel like it is the sky that doesn't make my eye completely pleased when I look at this image. I think the colours you've used there are too "neon" and screaming, and also the shapes of the clouds don't somehow fit in. The sky overall looks like it's not part of the rest of the image, so I'd recommend you to be more careful with those kind of things next time.

This is really beautiful, but why did you make the bottom of the piece, the landscape, look as if it was daytime ?

Aiivan ihana suomalainen korpimaisema yhdistettynä vähän itämaistyyliseen kuutamoon <3 Ja griippi itsessään on hyvin jännä otus, harvemmin näkee tuollaista! Tykkään kovasti.
