Phew, it seems like I'm back to old times when I was finishing and submiting event entries in evening of last day :/ But, I've done at least something, right? :D Again I think I chewed a bit too much and hoping to finish quick... I played again with gouache after some time (for some reason, I always feel like I know nothing about it at start of painting), tried to add there a bit deeper perspective and more motion. Also, snow storm in traditional... pfff :D

I really love the flying poses for them! The wings and tail feathers are beautiful! Orion and Larrine look fantastic! 
The griffin behind them look amazing too! I love the snowstorm as well! The fire and perspective are really great too!
