I was given green light to publish my piece after all, so here you go.
This is my piece for the upcomming 2012 Rare Antho Calendar. The topic is mythical creatures and it was my task to capture Gryphons for this project. I happily obliged. *g*
I was thinking of an interesting way to display gryphons, tried to think of different cultures in which they appear to limit ideas down, but gryphons are basically known all over the world in one form or the other, so that was not a helpful concept. Somehow I then got the idea of a family-orientated piece; a grown up gryph assisting its offspring during a first flight lesson and this is what I came up with.
The piece was challenging, as was taking part in this project, and I certainly hope I managed to live up to everybody's expectation. 8xPre-Orders for the calendars are open! --> [link]
EDIT: I just came back from work where I was presented with rather upsetting news. I threw my moist-from-rain clothes into a corner, waiting impatiently for my tea to become ready. MY head was slightly achy and full of throughts and then I checked DA and my inbox exploded on me. 8x
I seriously don't know what to say you guys. ;___; You make me so fight for my work as a traditional artist!!! Thank you guys, so so so much!
