Description

I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday! Or, if you don't celebrate, I hope last weekend was swell regardless. I regret that I haven't been so active lately - I've been killing myself at work (I'll post a journal about that later and not complain here). A few people had art from me on their wish lists this year. I really wanted to draw for everyone but only had time for one. This is TheUnknownMaverick's character named Lucius who is a gryphon even though I made him look like a dragon. I may or may not have taken some liberties with his design >> I hope you like it! As always, I recommend downloading.

Love the eye glint and the little details on the tongue. You really captured the texture of it (for some reason that really stood out to me XD) 
Merry belated Christmas beb!

He looks downright terrifying. :omg: Those eye glints though XD
I love how you've handled the blend of fur and feathers; it looks so natural and nice.
As always, you're an absolute texture master; the fur and feathers looks so soft and silky, and that beak looks super sharp, and the tongue looks super...tonguelike I don't know XD It looks like it'd feel bumpy and kinda wet and slimy, too. Not that I'd attempt to touch it; he seems the type who'd snap off anybody's finger who tried it.
Anyway, I'll shut up now, heh~ ♪

Awe don't feel the need to shut up. Thank you for the compliments! I'm really glad about how you feel with the textures - I painted this whole thing with one brush which is not something I've done before! Well, I have, but not with the triangle-shaped brush, hahaha!

But I tend to start rambling if I talk too much, or start saying stupid things that don't make a whole lot of sense. XD
Anyway, you are welcome! ♪
A triangle-shaped brush?  I didn't even know there was such a brush in PS. Is it included with the program originally, or was it something you had to get elsewhere?

Haha that's okay! :) It's not a default brush in PS but it's in this set! Along with some other goodies. My painting brushes

I like to collect PS brushes, even though I'm not a serious / skilled PS user. They're fun to have and mess around with. :)

You're welcome! I feel the same way - I'm usually not brave enough to try new brushes but it doesn't stop me from downloading them xD

your textures and details are always so wonderful! even the tongue looks so real i feel like i should be able to poke it
and likely get my finger bitten off in the process

holy crap! :omg: I love how you blurred the arms it makes the face look even more HD. The way you detail fur and scales together is so ungodly and the way you handle edges and as always the dragon anatomy is nothing but masterful. Your one in a billion. Even if someone where to practice a lifetime, I am still doubtful if they would ever got to this level.

And another nicely done drawing, good job! You seems to set the standard for these kinds of drawings in this community.

I actually did play a little bit of Witcher 3 and although I didn't finish it, I really enjoyed it! And thank you for the compliment - it means a lot to me, really.

Now, the reason I was asking is because this guy reminded me of the Griffin you had to take down the during the first level. I am sure you got to that part when you played through it.
