Thief (Magpie Griffin)

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Combine the magpie's love of shiny, colorful things with the piebald housecat's ingenuity at liberating them--and then flee the country, because nothing that isn't securely bolted directly to a large chunk of granite is safe from the prying claws and beak of the Magpie Griffin. For this pic, I used . . . um, everything. Colored pencil and ink on the griffin's right wing and head, as well as on about half of its tail; watercolor and ink, with a little pencil shading, on its near talon; straight watercolor for the fur on its back and the other half of its tail; a tiny bit of white acrylic on its wing stripe and the white portion of its tail; a regular graphite pencil for the chain and the ring; marker for the orange jewel; and, finally, plain wax crayon for the peacock highlighting on the griffin's wings and head. Hoo boy.
