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.

Dragon commission

20130803-202452.jpg

I can’t believe I forgot to upload this. I designed this a couple weeks ago. This a commission for my uncle to draw their dragon mascot for a high school reunion. I took some liberties and improved and redesign elements of the dragon with their permission. Then I did a interesting pose for the dragon. They where very happy with him.

I been sketching like a madman lately. I use a ultra fine sharpie marker, a primsacolor w3 marker, and a white gel pen. I do not pencil. Speaking of markers, I didn’t realize that copic markers could be refilled, so I made a mistake going with prismacolor last time. I scoffed a paying 8 dolors for a single marker (the cost of a month of Netflix..seriously!?) but since they can refilled 13 times with just 1 container of ink, it pays off in the long run. So I will be biting the bullet and purchasing one soon. Using traditional mediums is costly but are much more satisfying. Photoshop will be my main tool but not for sketching.

I will upload a post of sketches in the future.

I forgot to mention I made this on my iPad using Procreate.
