a Gryphon drawn in heraldic style. I was inspired while researching my family tree and the various coats of arms. There actually are no gryphons in any my family's coats of arms (lots of birds) but I liked the heraldic gryphons, so I drew my own using pictures from books of gryphons and lions...

this Drawing has it's own online store! go check it out. get this design on T-Shirts, Mugs, Mousepads or whatever else your heart desires.

Your gryphon is gorgeous.. I was wondering if I could have your permission to use it for a tattoo design.. I'm working on.

I could swear the the Heroes of Might and Magic series Griffin Empire has almost got the exact same Griffin.

Good God, this is amazing! I love the details of the fur and the feathers and - lovely! If you ever write a book, this could be a part any of your characters’ crest!

Sin 3 Killer: The HOMM 5 gryphon has a crown around its neck and a chain twisting around its body. It’s white with golden wings, and not this detailed.

Any knight would be proud to have this on a coat of arms.
