Running griffin

I started out drawing the build for a running cat. Then I made it into a griffin.

It kind of has some problems, like the front legs being too long. I was trying for that cheetah-like extension that a cat gets when they’re running all out.

I’ve pondered for a long time if a griffin should be drawn more as a cat or more as a bird. After reading some books with griffins, and watching the Narnian griffins very, very closely, I figure that it’s easier to draw what amounts to a winged cat with a beak. And bird-legs in front.

  1. I imagine so. And maybe sometimes they can’t fly away from danger. Maybe if they’re being hunted or something.
