What a lovely composition -- so much reality to such a fantastical piece! So creative!

Graceful design on the Griffin (thinking of it, the Simurgh is essentially a Persian Griffin) with a dignified expression and fine lead. The man has a slightly wary expression on his face (which might be appropriate around a horse-sized predatory creature, I guess) and his costuming is refined. The palace room is elegant.

Brilliant artwork! And I dig the idea of a fantasy themed version of a dog show XD

I love how you have a story and background behind a lot of your pieces- I really enjoy thinking about the characters and places in your art :)

Love the way you did the Griffin's hair, or would it be feathers? Either way it looks so real

The details are amazing. I love how large the griffon is. Excellent color pallet.

That is indeed a gorgeous griffin, it's no wonder he won :D   He must be well trained also since I'm sure that wee little halter would never hold him otherwise!   I like the flower on the chest harness.
