Skribble Gryphons by Firequill Skribble Gryphons by Firequill
Work in Progress Shots

This is my (first? I might make more!) entry to the Skribble Contest! Wow!

This was a very tiring piece of artwork to create since I did so many tiny grass and leaf and rock and mountain strokes all by hand and battled with the colours to get things looking okay every step of the way...! The colours started out a lot more dull, but have made their way to being more saturated and stuff.

I was worried about having mountains in my background since my previous attempts at them haven't been particularly great, but I seem to be getting the hang of painting them now...! It's certainly an improvement over previous attempts, anyway!

I say they're gryphons, but they don't actually have any wings because I didn't want to draw wings.

Such an incredible amount of detail, especially in the grass and background, and beautiful use of color really makes the drawing so wonderful!
I can see why this one's on the front page of the entries. I truly hope you make it to the finals. Prob one of my favorites.
