No, Rickee, you're not, you're just an extremely vain gryphon with a fancy mane and waaaay too much hair wax in it.

Ah, dear elfwooders, meet Rickee, a Swaison's hawk/puma gryphon with some hippogryph blood not far back in his bloodline. He just marched into my classroom the other day and demanded to be drawn. I made a portrait in ink, but he didn't like it, and followed me home for a real, colored drawing. He certainly can strike a pose.

I asked if i could do a 3/4 view of him, but he wanted a profile one, because of his mane - or "lady magnet", as he calls it, which is only smeared over to one side. Coolness, of course.

Me scanner ate me colors, and both me and Rickee complains greatly about that, and I also complain over his way too human sounding name, but he thinks it suits him well.  He also wants me to write a story about him where he is the guy with the sunglasses in the cadllla, with one chick in each claw, but I try to explain that I won't write an urban fantasy yet. Maybe later on.

Behold his glory and feel awed as you watch his divine body - and don't touch; those feathers were dyed yesterday, and we all know feather-dye isn't cheap!

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Just a pleasure, it’s always nice to see other people’s art! Yeah, vain gryphons forever! And dear Rickee would LOVE to meet your rocker gryphon *Rickee nods* So just get around drawing him =D

Thanks for stopping by!"

"lady magnet" O.o lol! I think the colours are very nice for even being chomped up, it’s not chomped like my coloured pics!! 16 I like how you drew his wings and his feet! their very nicely drawn! 12

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Thanks a lot - I’m glad you like him^^ Even though he looks way much better in real life!"

LOL, very cool...
Pantzia just showed it to me (she has obviously started to steal the comp just as Frost), and God, I think she likes him... I am not sure if it is good or not...
Frost just took one look at him and said "what a stupid mane!"
Something is definetely going on here...

Well, I find him really cool, and I love the original mane! Great pose too 12

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "*Rickee at the keyboard - beware!*

Well, of course she loves my gloriuos mane - who doesn’t? I’m not the least surprised she’s showing interest. Ladies just can’t take their gaze away from me once they see me. And that Frost is surely jealous. Just tell him to -

*Mie shoves Rickee away from the keyboard*

Damned gryphon - I told you to let that computer be!

I hope he didn’t offend anyone! Yeah, something is certainly going on - I’m just afraid he’ll hurt Pantzia’s feelings or something - he is that kind of use-and-waste-guy. We’ll see - maybe he surprise us all! Tell Frost to keep an eye on Pantzia, and I’ll have Stormwing watch Rickee, just so they don’t do something stupid before we see how this might work out - it can be kind of interesting!"

I’m on the case!!!! haha, Pantzia is stupid, really, Vilde thinks she is so very clever, but she is not... 1 And i am not jealous at all!!!!!10
No, I’ll watch her.
Greetings from Frost 1 *eating lots of delicious ice cream in the sunny sun, way too hot!!!*

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Hiya, Frostie! Glad to know I’m not the only gryph on the case - watching Rickee is quite boring, but Mie insists that I should do it anyways *sigh* And that damned featherhead just slumber on the sofa or sun-bathes for hours - and that’s really, really boring!

Ice cream? Lucky you, I’m eating what’s left of the cakes from Mie’s confirmation - some of them are still good, but others are getting blue and green spots >(

as i read this my gryphon friend venese said it was his kinda guy so ill draw her up and get some poses for her (she loves me drawing her flying) 5.

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Ohh, cool! *Rickee, that flamboyant... critter, nods expectantly, and of course, with style* I’d love to meet Venese, and I think maybe Rickee does as well!"

Cool! actually, I just drew a Swainson’s hawk today, which turned out pretty good.
(I LOVE hawks!)

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Hehe, thanks! Yeah, Swaisons are lovely ^^ But noone can beat the red-tail and the Harris!"

I forgot to pay homage...
*bows down before the mighty awesomeness of gryphonic hairstyles!*

:-) Mie 'Stormwing' Bendiksby replies: "Rickee forgives you. This time. Thanks, by the way x3"

nice, very nice. Once I figure out how to draw griffins i’ll have to draw mine. Oh and by the way Rickee she’s single.
