My scanner and I finally made peace and started working in the same  team : I screw up the anatomy and he destroys the colours xD

My new character , a young gryphon , who left her home to explore her world . she grew up in  a cave in the mountains with her mother and her two younger brothers . Her Mother allways told them  stories about far places with deep forests , dragons ,treasures and the sea ,some of wich she had seen  when she was younger and traveling herself , and some she only heard stories of.  The young Gryphon allways wanted to see them with her own eyes . When she was older she said goodbye and went on her journey . She got her name because of her fire-like markings , it could be translated into the english language as "Flames" . Flames is a good hunter and enjoys meat but she also eats things like berries and mushrooms. She has three rats as her companions , theres a story that explains how she got and another one how she got the two green phoenix feathers she wears around the neck ( not really visible i this pic) maybe I will tell those another time .

On her back she carries an animal fur 8caus she likes too sleep on something soft at night ) a basket for the rats ,some food and severel small things that are important to her .
The gryphons  call the mountains you can see in the background " Fang Mountains"  and apperently there´s some battle involving fire going on there xD

Hope I didn´t bore you too much with this . Hugs for everybody who actually read this <3

Watercolours , coloured pencils and a little bit of acrylic on bristol paper

aw, now that i look at it more closely, that rat looks almost exactly like Stella, except Stella had a white blaze on her nose. (look up "blazed rat" on google images, and you will know what i mean) sorry, i use a lot of rat lingo!

:-) Konsi Wagner replies: "rats rock xD I wish I had some too but the cats would probably eat them ^^"
