Not your typical gryphon... Beatrice is petite, quiet, and rather introspective. Being nocturnal it suited her to follow the profession of celestial navigator. She has worked as the night navigator on vessels of sea, air, and even space, being the part owner of the solar-sailing spaceship, the 'Brightmoth'. Art & Character Copyright 2001 s.a.wilkinson.

This is an immensly beautiful picture. Her expression is so knowing, and she looks so soft. I really love this picture. *envies your talent*

I love the overall color/stain of this piece. It works very well for the barn-owlish creature. You have managed to blend both halves of the animal so well. They appear so natural, the flow and movement captures both a felines grace and an owls proud wisdom.
I'm sorry but I HAVE to try this version of a gryphon myself! Its too good to pass up! I must dabble in it too!

Your art is excellent. Keep up the practice!

YOu executed the horned owl part beautifully, but I seem to have trouble with it - my eye can't decide to JUST see it as a gryphon crouching, it wants to see an owl standing with some legs behind her right wing. *sighs* I think it's her left wing that does it. It's a beautiful picture, but visually it really confuses me. I love that staining to, though. How do you manage it?

She's cute! You're right, she's not the average griffin. Most of them look more rough. She's all curves. Nice job.

What a lovely pose! She's very beautiful. I saw the thumbnail and couldn't figure out what it was! But the full sized image is very impressive. I'm a huge sucker for unique takes on old mythological creatures. Lovely. I applaud you. 2

It's great to see someone that thinks a lot like me (if only I had the talents). I had in a book I was writing some odd years ago about a gryphon who had a barn owl front rather than the typical eagle. I gave up drawing her cause I couldn't capture the image in my head of her. Beautiful job, I must say. Can't wait to see more from you.

The ochre colour scheme works well with the character you wished to portray. Nice work. I like the fluffy ears.
