In everyone's imagination they will run into a creature that will become their companion and closest friend during the duration of your stay in your imagination. For some people it will be dragons, for some maybe a cat or a dog, or a tiger or lion, in this case, mine is a gryphon.


Don't be afraid to leave any constructive criticism!

Wonderful lighting here makes the gryphon "pop" out almost realistically. I could imagine meeting him in the woods. Quite the noble creature.

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Indeed! Quite friendly aswell!

I try and go for a realistic look in almost all of my art. Lighting and shading is key! "

WOW! I love the lighting of this and how it is set.

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Thank you, surprisingly it didn’t take too long. Just shy of 2 and a half hours."

I’m loving your griffins, by the way - you’re really good at them!

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Thank you! They’re my favorite mythical creatures! Dragons after that. 1"

I like the shading, and I especially like the background. Excellent technique on this piece. My imagination companion is definitely a giant crab.

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Haha! nice! Your giant crab would own everything!"

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Thank you, I’m very happy with how this one turned out."
