I wanted to do something besides the concept art I've been doing lately. There are a lot of killdeer around my house this time of year. Those birds have such neat markings that I couldn't help but try and make a killdeer gryphon. He was originally going to have ocelot-like markings on his hindquarters but it looked too crowded so I stuck with the killdeer markings throughout his feline half.

On another note... making grasslands is fun.  :p

I like this gryphon. He has stripes on his chest and he has a nice mix of puma and killdeer. his feathers are very detailed, too. I like it.
