This is an older gryphon, a veteran of many battles and the last one standing. The enemies got in a few good hits and the broken stump of a spear protrudes from his shoulder, but he is the victor, the one who lives! I wanted a view of a gryphon standing, showing some strain but still very powerfull--I think it worked. This is another of my humongous sketches, scanned in six sections and restitched with PhotoShop, and then mangled by the 100Kb size restrictions. But if my scanner and PhotoShop don't start working better I'll clean the first with battery acid and fine-tune the second with a hammer.
