She's supposed to be a Mississippi kite gryphon, which are pretty small, sleek birds. I tried to hold true to that :3

Oh, very nice! I really love how you do fur and feathers. :D

Thanks :3 Personally, I've found feathers to be harder than fur, for some reason, so I tried to kind of compromise somehow here.

Askrata Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2008  Hobbyist General Artist
Really? Well, that does make sense, since feathers have more detail than fur. I find them both to be difficult. :noes: But I'm working on it. :3

I really like gryphons! There`s something
so special about em! Like with most mythical
creatures! I wonder what their nature
would be/is ( :P ) like :P

Awww...

Well, "historically," gryphons are supposed to be proud and greedy, I believe... XD
