The body structure on this gryphon is just gorgeous. It has a real feeling of solid reality, like it could walk off the page into life.
Beautiful job!

I really love the technique you've used for the sky and moss, it really brings a lot to the painting. :3 The rocks are very well done and the gryphon looks spectacular. I really like the tattered flags as well.

I love the coloring-- it's got inner energy but it's not garish or heavy at all. I would love to see a stained glass version of this work! A great job!

Hehe, they probably are short. I tend to do goofy mistakes like that when I freehand. :)

Great work! This piece seems to have a touch of sadness to it, and yet at the same time, the gryphon has an air of pride and honor as he continues a tradition long gone. I love the texture in the sky, and the overall layout and colors of the whole thing, especially the rustic red of the banners. In fact, I can almost see them waving.

This is beautiful! I cant believe you have the patience for such tedious water color!

Also, i know this probably isnt the place to ask, but do you have a possible date on the arrival on my books? I know you said it would take some time, but I am getting a bit worried...
