First griffin done

First griffin done!

I tackled Colette first, since she’s mostly gray. I used a goshawk as reference for her.

They’re gray with lots of pretty white and black markings on their underbellies. Except Colette is described as having brown eyes, not yellow or red, so she wound up looking a little more peregrine than I’d intended. I tried to make her look feminine around the eyes, but alas, the avian face just doesn’t convey gender the way a mammalian face does.

I shall continue to color griffins. 🙂

  1. I don’t think you need to worry about it. I was able to see which griffins were male and which were female from the sketch. I think you convey gender better than you think you do!
