Sorry for the cliche title. It was either "facing demons" or "When to stop worrying and love the flamingos".
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.
Look ma, a griffin! *runs*
