Halo Soundtrack Title.
This is my #ShinXChange piece for ~eviri :) I'm so sorry beb for being late on this; I honestly had no idea that my last two months was going to be some serious craziness.

This is ~eviri's character, Syam, in a. . . forest?! Maybe he's about to assassinate someone, I don't know. I was really pushed outside my comfort zone on this one, and it shows. I don't draw gryphons often at all so the feet were really hard ;A;. I also tried extra hard on a background!!

Anyway, It's almost 2am and I get up in a few hours to work, so I really need some rest. Thanks for looking! There's a crispy version of the image under the download. DA always softens it for some reason.

Syam :iconeviri:
Art :iconshinerai: that's me!

This is great. I thought there was something different about this, then I realized it was a gryphon...and I couldn't recall seeing many gryphons from you, haha. That background is wonderful.

Yes I certainly don't draw gryphons very often so it was an interesting opportunity for something challenging XD!
I'm glad you like it and I appreciate your compliments c:

I'm actually a huge fan of ~eviri's gryphon design. So it's really cool to see him in your style! :meow:

This is really lovely, Shin. I have a weak spot for washed-out colors and atmospheric backlighting. I've always loved the way you illustrate light hitting and reflecting off your subjects as well. You have improved and grown so much since I started watching you way back when. :>

THIS IS AMAZING.
The front paw is a tad small, and the shapes are a little too rounded on the toes. I also think the head is a tad small as well.
BUT OTHER THAN THAT....
The coloration, and monochrome-ness of the character and environment is lovely.
I love the rocky background, and the lighting is fantastic as always! <333
ahh Shin, never cease to amaze.

Ah, my bad; must've been distracted by the art XD
i really like the whole thing; the style, the coloring, the textures, everything.
so, yes, i haven't seen a griffin quite like it, and it's a fantastic picture in itself.
i keep catching myself trying to see into the shadows of his wings - i keep expecting the light to change -_-;;
