Philippine Gryphon by pallanoph Philippine Gryphon by pallanoph
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.

To ~SteampunkTyki Hope this looks alright to you!

Art ฉ April Schumacher. Please do not utilize this work in ways I'd consider stupid, unlawful, and/or rude. (Meaning, no tracing, referencing without credit, posting as yours, making profit, all that poop.)

I think I know who I'm going to when I want another commission. I have a gryphon character I'm going to be putting to use in my very own D&D-style tabletop system, and she's quite a lot more avian than lion. I must've spent days trying to find an image that lined up with what I envisioned, ended up commissioning a couple of reference pieces...

... THEN I found your page. If only I'd seen beforehand, hehe. Excellent works.

Fantastic! If nothing else, I'd consider your tail style to be pretty unique, plus this beauty has a lot more feathers and a lot less fur than typical gryphs I've seen.
Also, I love your copyright statement :D

I was really caught up in getting the eagle part of him to look correct, since they're such distinctive looking birds. The gryphon part of him almost ended up being an afterthought by comparison! :lol:

My copyright statements just seem to get more and more snarky... I didn't want to go that route, but it just keeps slipping out of me as of late. So many people nab my things without even asking anymore, and even if I'm level headed about it, it's still awfully rude! I'm glad you appreciate the snark, though. :D

Almost all of these last ones involve some sort of wing. It is really good practice, though. :D

More or less the same thing over here... I'm trying to keep a stable balance between art life (finishing more ambitious work!), day job (should go for something better), and social life. With any luck, I'll be making some large changes, hopefully for the better. :D I can say, however, that things seem better overall this year. (For once, I didn't spend 50% of a year dealing with mild depression/general anxiety regarding life, haha. Improvement, hurrah!)

As for you, I hope the shaky elements in your life stabilize in the best possible way! :hug:
