Daily Painting No.69 – Gryphon Drinking

gryphon drinking your troubles away

This poor gryphon has had a rough time. Dare you sit with him and hear his woes? I’ve have this fascination with giving the animals I paint human like feelings. The question is can I a make the viewer feel sorry for a monster? I painted this entirely out of my imagination, no references. I didn’t even do any thumbnail sketches. It is also one of my first back lighting comps.

I postponed my rock still life painting because I am taking a composition workshop at conceptart.org. My next three daily paintings will be my homework assignments. I’ve already seen improvements in my work taking this workshop. I’m now thinking of important design concepts while I’m painting and not leaving anything to ‘chance’. every stroke on my canvas means something. It’s also a relief to know I don’t have to paint every detail in a painting, and what I should focus my attention to. If I get my focal points set up correctly, I do not need to do much to the falloff, and my painting will still look finished.

1 hour; Painted from scratch in photoshop.

Daily Painting No.40 (Gryphon Pet WIP) (Alexis)

gryphon concept art v1 wip digital painting

Concept art for Alexis’ pet gryphon. He is a loyal guardian to Alexis. It’s is a rather small gryphon (a microgryph is what I will be calling it, a rare pet in Alexis’ world), about the 1/3 of the size of a human being. But don’t let his small size fool you. Anyone that messes with Alexis will get seriously messed up. There is a small sub-plot about how the gryphon came under her care and what the gryphon was once before. Critique, Repaint the Talons, mix and blend the painting to make it less rough. Feel free to critique or comment about my painting. Painted in Photoshop; Time spent 3 hours so far.

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.

Anthro Gryphon

anthro gryphon furry gryphon oc fursona just joking

Another experiment sketch of a gryphon character I’ve been working on. This time i tried anthropomorphic animal style . the biggest issue was the wings, the wings themselves are not difficult to draw but more what size in relationship to the body should I make them. too big and they look dorky, too small and he can’t fly with them which defeats having wings on him in the first place. I think i will keep Maugryph more of a realistic gryphon and and avoid the anthro route.
