For this guy I used white ink and a pain brush as opposed to a nib pen. This picture is on my math binder. Both sides if my binder look the same so I sometimes open it at the back and I wanted to change that so I did this picture on the front. I just hope that the ink doesn't come off like the metallic ink did on my sketch book cover.

very nice, its relatively rare you can find someone who can sketch an up close gryphon head and have the ears not looking freakish...this looks incredible

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Thank you Monique!!! I’ve never really had a problem drawing ears. It’s usually the things lacking in detail that I have a problem drawing. Then more focus is put on the proportions (which I’m not great at)"

gorgeous and majestic, just as a gryphon should be

:-) Joshua Steven Joseph Mersereau replies: "Thanks, that’s one of my better ones."
