Humming Gryphon by McGibs Humming Gryphon by McGibs
My theroy on Gryphons is that you can take any bird and any mammal, crap the two halves together, and it makes a gryphon.

This is an adorable gryphon. I would have never considered a mouse and a hummingbird. Absolutely delightful!

That's exactly how you make a gryphon lol! Maybe add in like 3 animals all at once. But this piece is very wonderful. I really like the texture of the portrait and the muted colors go well with the soft line. I want to say "antiqued" ?? O_o? Still! I like it very much! Fantastic work, keep it up!

For a couple of seconds I though this was a real legitimate creature. The way in which you instill life into your work is amazing.

I like your theory, especially in part of the Hippogryph, a subspecies of gryphon with a horse's hind instead of a lion's.

Also I completely agree any half mammal and half bird in one creature makes a gryphon, not just birds of prey and big cats :)

*Facemelt* That's so damn cute. And I agree, I'm looking at Gryphon pictures for reference because I'm working on making one that's half vulture and half sphynx cat.

I got here from a random link to mix-and-match animal hybrids... and I'm surprised at the quality. That's a really nice artwork, and a cool idea. Sure, I may be a little biased towards cute critters, but I still find it pretty refreshing to use this old trope in such a new way.
