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

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

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.

That's probably the most majestic griffin I've ever seen. Nod That posture, that gaze... really makes you respect the creature. :D (Big Grin) 
And that's a neat prize trophy the Arabian-esque feathered turban wearing man is holding. I wonder if it's made of sapphire... Greetings 
A deviation totally +fav'd!

I don't normally comment, but I just have to say in all the pieces you do I love the worldbuilding and the stories behind every single one! It almost annoys me that I want so desperately to know more about these places and these characters! GOOD JOB!!

I really love the tone and the overall composition of this. It's pieces like this that help dissolve the line between fantasy and reality. The fact that it blends a cultural aspect to it is just perfect. Well done all around. :)
