Soaring by Lhuin Soaring by Lhuin
I got inspired to draw gryphons again after drawing that t-shirt contest entry : D I also saw some really nice pictures of thunderstorms inside clouds, and even if this one ended up being more like a sunlight in the clouds as I progressed and tried things, I'm still very happy with how the background turned out :) always nice drawing clouds!

And hope the wings don't look derpy, some parts were really difficult to draw (so many feathers too ahha), was practising drawing and painting them on this a lot.

also wanted to share a nice brush setting I used a lot in this but seems like the video showing that is gone :S but basically, a good and painterly blending tool in photoshop is using the smudge tool and changing the brush settings like this: [link] gives some nice blending results :D

drawn in photoshop, took a few days but maybe like 6 h in total, painting every now and then
the look of the gryphons is also loosely based on this bird: [link]

thanks for looking :)

I have a thing for epic skies and mythical creatures. I think you pulled them both off with flying colors (no pun intended)! It's beautiful!
