facing demons by gruffin facing demons by gruffin
Sorry for the cliche title. It was either "facing demons" or "When to stop worrying and love the flamingos".

Whatever.

I started this back in February (earlier if you count when I sketched the griff first) and then put it down for 8 months. And just finished it up now. PShop cs and some painter 4 thrown in. Also, I flipped it horizontally at the last few renovations, figuring it pulled a "Great Wave" on me. The original composition is in my scraps. The final version has more resolution with story, at least with us left -to-right readers. Or just me. :P

Look ma, a griffin! *runs*

facing demons by ~gruffin is beautiful with all the rich paint strokes. Quite remarkable for a digital image, but not surprising for an artist of this talent level, she does fantasy paintings with incredible details and unique perspectives. I really like how this griffin is more eagle than lion, a nice take on a classic creature. ( Featured by Aeires )

Thank you. :) I was trying to get an interactive composition. All my previous stuff has been pretty portrait-like.

I wish I saw this sooner. The brushstrokes are so fluid, and the movement in this image is fantastic. You do amazing digital work, I must say. This is going in my favourites.
