Gryphon Cassidix by AlectorFencer Gryphon Cassidix by AlectorFencer
A painting, which started with a funny idea and a scribble in Photoshop.
Since hornbills are my most afvourite birds in the rainforest but I also wanted to work on a griffon picture that time, I thought I could merge them to get a funny and colourful creature. It's not as funny as it looks like though.
As always, I built my own thoughts about creatures and characters while working on them.

For example is the Gryphon Cassidix a creature that lives in the rainforest and eats fruits only. The mixture of a hornbill and a puma with different colours and fur was interesting enough to finish that painting. When I first finished the scribble, I lost my motivation to continue it and left it in my folders for ages and ages. One week ago, I found it again and opened it to llok, if I can continue it and started painting the fur.
Like on each drawing or painting I do, I can hardly stop finishing it because there are always things to find which can be re-done or refined. Till the colours and the details were set, a week was over and I finally could put the lights and shadows on the creature and tree.
After the background -which I finished last- was done, I vectorized my logo and set it on the right side below. I will use it in every drawing/painting in future. It's a lot clearer than the one I scribbles before.
I would need a tutorial of how to draw wings. lol...These are wings with which the griffon isn't really able to fly. Just imagine that they can't fly but climb...:XD:

The picture was scribbled and finished in Photoshop 7.0 by using a tablet and it took me ages to finish.

Thank you a lot fo looking!
