This was a contest entry on deviantART. The concept was to draw a character for the name "Jesdema Zapho". When I read the name I thought of the word zap (even though the ph is supposed to sound like an f), and vola! This gryphon was bestowed with the powers over electricity and Fire. I thought it would be reasonable since lightning has been known to cause wildfires. I'd neve drawn a gryphon before this piece, so it was a real challenge for me. Done with Prismacolor markers, Art Stix, a sharpie, sakura micron ink, and Kleenex on 8.5" x 11" cardstock.
