Daily Painting No.39 (Maugryph’s Gryphon)

anthro gryphon mascot hero author artist alter ego fursona gryphon grffin roger roger

A gryphon with a scarf. Character design WIP, first pass. I had this character on the back burner for over a year. A more cartoon/anthro/funny animal like design then I have been drawing recently . I like scarfs. I also like gryphons (I don’t have ‘Gryph’ in my avatar name just randomly :D). I used to draw them often. This guy started out as my blog’s mascot. I still prefer a dragon for my icon. If you would like to see the design from a year ago, here it is: https://maugryph.com/?attachment_id=35

Critique: left foot is a little off, arms need refinement. the wings need feathers. the gryphon’s face looks too much like mine (minus the beak of course). refine refine refine.

back to still life painting and studies tomorrow.

Jed the Unicorn

As I mentioned earlier I would be working on a new comic series. So far there is only two characters in the comic. Jed the unicorn. It is set in a modern world like our own but inhabited by legendary creatures instead of humans. The comic itself will combine vector artwork in 3d scenes.

The Curse

Digging around my archives I found this drawing I did of this female werewolf arms raised trying to call for help but being unable to with only howls and whimpers coming out. It was a unfinished line drawing that I made a couple years ago. I thought it would be cool to see if i could bump it up a notch with my new painting skills and recreate it in a more realistic way. Then I though why is she a werewolf? Being bitten by one was too cliche. I thought a cursed pendant would be the most effective way to portray that. It was kinda fun experimenting with the ‘special effects’. Unlike most werewolf art where the artist ether is trying to scare you or try to show off how bad-ass the monster is, I wanted the viewer to feel sympathy for her.

Dragon Self Portrait

I was painting a self portrait of my self when i got irritated with it. So after hours and of work I have painted myself as a dragon. I haven’t even colored it yet. It has a resemblance of my comic character Chip. when I showed this to my friends, they¬† joked around and said they couldn’t see a difference (at least I hope they where joking) I am curious to try this dragon metamorphism on one of my friends as well. I could start my own army of dragon humanoid freaks. Its one of the best digital paintings I have done so far. I created it from scratch in Adobe Photoshop.
