Over the vast expanses of the moonlit jungle, a mythical protector watches over, hidden in the breath of the wind and the rustle of the glimmering leaves.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~hehe, shiny... This was a scratchboard project that we had to do based on pictures of birds we were looking at in my high school Art Club. I picked an American Kestrel, but, instead of doing the whole bird, I changed it into a gryphon halfway through. It turned out VERY different from my usual birds (see Skystar) since it was based on the photo, but I am rather pleased with the results nonetheless. The photo of it here isn't the best; I'll upload a new one as soon as I can.
