Firewing Gryphon by Nambroth Firewing Gryphon by Nambroth
Freehand ink drawing (no sketch first) so there are mistakes I couldn't fix. :}

Ink and marker on 8" x 10" paper, done just for fun.

i do 'alot' sometimes without sketches underneet.
hahaha i'm stupid.
how do you get the marker and ink to play nice? my microns hate the faber castells as much as sloping watercolor onto a markerpen line art.

I hear some microns don't play nice with Markers. I use Zigs for my inking and they work great... no bleeding. :)

Zig Millennium pens. They are what I grew up using. Permanent, light fast, waterproof. I don't like Microns since they don't always play nice with other mediums.

<3!!! i've always loved your work! been looking at it for about 1 and a half years now (i know.. sounds kinda stalker creepy, I NO RITE?) but i haven't had a Deviant account until recently... and now that i have one i thought i'd let you know that you have a massive amount of tallent and i'd REALLY like to steal your watercolor abilities... cause they rock my socks and whatnot.... but anyway... before i lose myself in a tangent... <3!!!!!

Very beautiful piece! Nice colors and great detail, I'm amazed that it was all freehand with no sketch. I have a couple free hand ink drawings that don't even come close to comparing with yours. A truely remarkable skill! Keep up the good work!

In a previous comment she said she uses Prismacolors. Hope this helps.. :)

I still can't believe this was a freehand drawing... if you search for gryphon on DA now, this is on the first page of popular pictures proving how grand a picture this is.

This is beautiful, I love those golden-tipped feathers the most! ^-^ You know, your freehands are many times better than any presketched drawing many of the DA population could muster. =)

Wow, this is very nice for no undersketch at all, I hardly see anything wrong other than the wing in the foreground is a little big... but hey you can always claim foreshortening. Beautiful, reminds me that I haven't drawn any gryphs in a minute, been on a dragon kick.

Well done! This is really an impressive piece. There are few who can put pen to paper and get this as a result. Congratulations ^__^ I don't see any mistakes, but then again, the eye of the artist is harsher on their own work, methinks. Again, well done. :)
