Flying By by Susiron Flying By by Susiron
Just a quick little digital painting I felt like doing.
I wanted to paint a flower, and then it just sort of transformed into this. xD

I based the face of the little gryphon on a Kakariki, but the rest is just pretty generic. xD

I think I'll call the little gryph Kipper.


Kipper is copyright to me.
Painted on SAI.

This is beautiful :la: the simplicity is perfect, and I love the way you've used really soft shades and lighting. It makes everything look really delicate. The fur on Kipper is perfectly done, and I really love the flower design. Do they exist, or did you just have fun and invent? The clouds are a nice backdrop, too, giving it a feeling of spacial awareness.

I really hope you draw more of Kipper, with or without his flowers :) And who is Kakariki, who his face is based on? I've never heard the name.

Thank you, I'm still really happy with this one! x)
And he's just some random Gryphon that I drew, so I don't know if anyone else has ever combined a Kakariki and a cat-- a Kakariki is a type of bird, a sort of parakeet.

You're welcome :)

Thanks for telling me about the Kakariki. I'll definitely have to look these up. And I've seen some unusual gryffins, so you never know :D

Amazing though, and I hope you're one day seized by the impulse to do more of these guys (or the flowers XD).

That's a good name for the little gyphon. Love the drawing of the red flower.

Aw, so pretty and fluffy. I like how you put him on those flowers, it's both beautiful, adds interesting flow to the design, and gives a size comparison.

Kipper. D'aww. :heart: I just wanna give him a hug! :'D

This little guy isn't actually in my story, though. All of the gryphons in my story are based off of owls-- in fact, owls actually don't exist in the story because of that, lol.
