Scream Of The Sun by Wotansvogel Scream Of The Sun by Wotansvogel
The gryphons. One of the ancient races, untouched by time, born with earths life in unknown realms where worlds collided, where souls got together to become one instead. It's said that there are only three gryphons left in Elennya.

To humankind, they are known as sacred gods:
The black gryphon Lunaris, half-raven half-Irbis, warden of the moon and guide of the dying souls.
The light gryphon Solifer, half-eagle half-lion, warden of the sun and keeper of life.
And the wise gryphon Silentia, half-barn owl half-lynx, source of all wisdom.

Solifer! :D She's one female you don't want to provoke. She.. erupts rather quickly. Lunaris really likes to goad her to this point... good thing that he, at least, always keeps his cool. :p
Don't worry, I plan to introduce them properly to you in their "facade" drawings. :)

what type of pencil do you use for this? and is it on normal white paper? one of the best griffon sketches i've seen in ages!
Wotansvogel Oct 5, 2013  Professional General Artist
Just plain and simple graphite pencils (Faber-Castell, from 2H brightest to 8B darkest). :) And yes, this one is on normal white paper. Nowadays I use very smooth and thicker paper for my drawings.
And thank you! I don't really like this one anymore. I really have to change her hind legs, they look so awkward. :p
