I’ve had this particular griffin concept in mind for a while, and thought I’d get him out on paper (digital paper)? where I could look at him.
He’s a foil to my griffin Caligo, who is peregrine falcon/snow leopard. She looks like this:
He, on the other hand, is aplomondo falcon/tiger, and looks like this:
I don’t see a lot of tiger griffins, I guess because classic griffin is lion/bald eagle. But you’d think tiger would be the next logical step.
Anyway, for some reason, because of his particular animal mix, I want to name him Alfonzo. And his personality is already “jerk”, and I know nothing else about him.
I also thought it would be fun to use an aplomondo falcon, because they’re similar to a peregrine, but brighter-colored.
Aren’t they pretty? They were actually used to raise peregrine chicks in captivity, so the chicks would see a parent that was similar to a peregrine.
