For #Windsonde!

You are finally part of a clan! Congratulations, honor and glory is bestowed upon you. A party is being thrown in your honor amongst your clan-mates. There's a huge bonfire and probably hot makeouts as well as ritual sacrifice! Exciting. Depict your character in attendance as the guest of honor!

Dom decided the most enjoyable way to celebrate his coming of age was to have a screaming match with Kerberos. Whoever screams the longest without taking a breath wins!

The other party-goers, on the other hand, were not so enthusiastic about the screeching Steller's. Valcaur and Briggen, whose quiet conversation was rudely interrupted, jointly looked up in irritation. Tanq and Grimmald had had enough of the screaming the moment it began. Tanq nodded at the Steller's. "Let's take 'em down," he whispered to Grimmald conspiratorially.

Samael decided to take advantage of the situation. He flashed a small nugget of gold at Keilos and Amini. "Wanna make a bet?" he asked with a smile. Keilos and Amini seemed more interested in looking at the gold piece than making a bet, however.


Well this was fun, though the central light source was quite a challenge. I'm not really sure if I got the lighting right on the foreground gryphs (esp. their wings), but I like how the lighting worked out overall. The best part was putting the screaming shadows on the wall heh heh heh.

The gryphons clockwise from top left:
Kerberos by *LacedDog
Dom by me
Valcaur by *Ciameth
Briggen by *Supaslim
Grimmald by *Bailiwick
Tanq by ~Marbletoast
Amini by *Paper-Rabbit
Keilos by =Ranya-Ni
Samael by ~Mukuo

How much would you charge for an image like this in A4 size? How long would it take to complete?

Man!! That's just amazing! Everyone has said, but its true--the textures and colors are just perfect! The whole thing feels so connected, and everything is drawn soooooooo nice. <3 MMMMM. And holy cow, the wings! Look at them! LOOK AT THEM. They are in so many different angles and positions, and all of them look fantastic. Augh!!

If the lighting is not correct in the front, it is not detrimental. It works visually!

Thank you so much for including Tanq!! He looks fabulous! :D Such a silly boy, Tanq--you do not stand a chance against the big screaming Stellers! :XD: Yay skua gryphs! :meow:

Even if he can't take on the Steller's, he would at least be able to seriously surprise them by JUMPING THROUGH THE FIRE!!

Oh goodness. XDD And the screaming must echo something awful in thsoe caves!

Love the expressions, and how much personality every griffin is showing. This is just incredible. XD And I love Dom so much. He's kind of a blockhead, but he's an adorable blockhead.

Thank you for drawing Briggen, he looks downright miffed. ^^

Oh wow, I doubt the sound of two Steller's screeching at each other is a pleasant sound AT ALL. I feel bad for the other party goer's ears, goodness knows they might all go deaf!

Everything about this is seriously gorgeous. You paint so beautifully, and the atmosphere/lighting is very well done! The expressions/postures have to be my favorite part, poor Valcaur and Briggen look positively annoyed!

Thank you so much for including Kerb! You render him so handsomely. Ahhh thank you! ;_;
I can imagine Dom and Kerb having a bunch of macho moments, haha. Silly male gryphons and their shenanigans!

"Dom decided the most enjoyable way to celebrate his coming of age was to have a screaming match with Kerberos. Whoever screams the longest without taking a breath wins!"

That made me crack up so hard. The wording is perfect--my roommate is wondering why I'm laughing. I love the picture. Kerb and Dom with their big beaks in each other's faces is my favorite part, but the other characters are all alive with personality without making the scene too busy! Thanks for including Valcaur. I wonder what he and Briggen were talking about?
