Gryphon Riders by Quanyails Gryphon Riders by Quanyails
This is gift art for someone beloved of mine. :) I wanted to make a contrasting diptych of, well, characters riding on gryphons! :P I ended up with this 5500x1700 monstrosity. @_@ Unfortunately, it looks best at half-size, and dA's options for which size to show the art at does not include half of 5500x1700, so the version you see here was manually resized. The full-sized version is available via download, though.

I feel moderately satisfied with the drawing! I've learned a lot about one way of coloring and shading the drawing, as well as making the colors pop. The hands also came out pretty okay! On the other hand, though, I'm not satisfied with some parts. Can you see that I have no idea how to draw birds? @_@ The wings look dimensionless and the talons look out of place. I also noticed too late that I drew Vicerre leaning too far back. Ah, well! I'm still happy. :)

I suppose this drawing counts as a pseudo-installment of the Suiguno series? :P It only took a half year more compared to my existing art speed!

Really cool! I really like the wing coloring along with the overall kinda "fluffy" look on the left Gryphon. :D
