I recognized the secretary bird in it :) Way more unique than the cliche gryphons in standard fantasy! Awesome job!

You had a wonderful idea to use a secretary bird as the bird half of your gryphon and you executed it quite beautifully. I really like the piece, it's really well done.

Whoa! This is weird, I keep finding artists who draw creatures exactly as I imagine them in my novel! :+fav:

This is beautiful. She looks windswept - I definitely wouldn't want to mess with her. Great job!

Wonderful combo- secretary birds are nifty. Great beak and ears! :)

How unique! I love how she looks like she could rip your head off, but dainty at the same time! :D

nice work! ...and with two of my favourite animals =)
EmpressIllyria Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2007
I love the design of this one, I love the concept of the slightly unexpected animals, and such elegant form as a result. Althoughm to be honest, she rather reminds me somewhat of an African Fish Eagle... very very cool!
severknuckles Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2007
man! good job those two are a great combination...they look unique own their own but you made them look like plush toys...furthermore, man i just love this, you made a simurvgh also because it's a dog...drools...
zirofax Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2007
Thanks!! The design was fun, I almost want to re-draw this tho, I just realized that it's 4 years old.... hehe.
So wait, what's a simurvgh? I haven't heard of that before.
severknuckles Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2007
it's has many spellings, it's also called the roc; it is half-dog and half-eagle...some have the head of a dog; its front-legs are that of an eagle's; the wings of an eagle; the hind-quarters (back-end) of a dog; some have the tail of a peacock...some say it's a giant bird...i love hybrids and chimera-like creatures...

Very cool combo of a griffon (or lupogryph as it's part dog) Excellent image!
kyraal Featured By Owner Sep 30, 2006
Yay! Reminds me of my secretary bird/maned wolf gryphon Kyraal 'cause like...they're both secretary bird/maned wolf gryphons!

I really like teh feet for some reason. :hmm:
likkledibbun Featured By Owner Aug 10, 2006
Oooh, wow, cool! I'm still having issues with trying to merge 4-legged and 2 legged creatures together. Can't draw the wings or bird-feet. *worships*
Kiinotasha Featured By Owner Aug 2, 2006
This is very awsome, you did a wonderful job in the details of BOTH animals. You also put your own spin on it that makes it yours. I was wondering, are you doing art trades? I would be very interested in doing one with you.
