I hope you're used to the black and white flood I've been spewing for the past I-don't-know-how-many- months. I'm still churning through the sketch commissions... If I'm lucky, I might even crave painting once I'm done with this round. SURE.
Here's a gryphon styled after the magnificent Philippine eagle, as commissioned by ~SteampunkTyki
The design didn't come out as unique as I'd originally hoped (augh!) and I wanted to put just a few catlike features into his hind end, even if they're hard to see. I guess I was too caught up in getting the bird half of him to look recognizable. As much as I love Philippine eagles, I'd never drawn one before! D: Either way, I loved drawing this beastie. I want to do my own little take on gryphons more often.
Hope this looks alright to you!
