As sometimes happens, I started this painting over a year ago, and only recently finished it. It's amazing how much detail you can get out of soft pastels and conté crayons with a razor blade and a pair of tweezers.

This is a really awesome piece. I usually don't have the patients to give much detail to anything. This is excellent work.

Ooooohhhh! I wanted to zoom in on the feathers to see how awesome they really are! It's too bad there is such a size restriction, I'll bet the original is ten times as gorgeous as what we see here ^^ Great job!!

Can't believe no one else asked this. Where did he get the ring? Is he *gasp* engaged?! OxO""

The texture of the feathers make it look real (of course, I believe Gryphons are real anyway) The ring is such a mystery...it gives one something to think about.
