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.

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!

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.

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...

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*

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.
