Cool job with this...And I have to agree about the watchamacolum-fox. You start getting into Chimera territory if you throw enough animal parts together. And they wonder why I like to stick with basic winged-lion, winged-wolf, fox-dolphin things. It isn’t entirely Mercedes Lackey’s fault, either. I think she just did for gryphons what Anne McCaffrey did for dragons: showed them as being friendly toward humans instead of feuding with them.

i like how he is softly cradling the fireflies. i love the softness of the lines. what program did you use to draw it? is it hard to use?

a very, very beautiful picture, very calm and peaceful, the expression and the pricked ears lends one to believe the patient meditation has begun to bestow its reward upon the Chimera.

The background is very lovely, I like how the fireflies trail back into the woods, but I think that a buffalo or coyote would work best for this. Don’t get me wrong, other commenters, I like gryphons, but this sort *Points to picture* is insanely overdone. The short stubby beak, the fluff, big puppy eyes, tubby body, humanoid expression- I’m sorry, but I don’t like it. If you want to do a gryphon, I think you should make it as tough and fierce as possible, not coat it in downy feathers. Also, it isn’t actually that original if you pick a random bird and a random mammal and glue them together. You need to mix ’em up and make your own beast. And, everyone else, for goodness sakes DON’T make your creature an ultra were-cyber-emo-mix of a billion different animals-thing. Ms. Vernon has an excellent point.

Nice art, but I’ll propose another theory for the existence of gryphons: they’re modern dragons, in the same way that birds are modern dinosaurs (I’m actually writing a story that’s going to include this premise).
