Cardinal Inspired Griffins by ZoeTaylor11 Cardinal Inspired Griffins by ZoeTaylor11
Yay!!! :D

They are in the snow but when I inked the red one, I forgot to make it look like he was in snow!
The big one on the left is male, the right is female :)

The scan came out a little weird again, not all lines are picked up. I'm currently flattening the picture and I might scan it again and replace the image with the handy dandy replace option :)

Critiques are welcome! I might still be able to change things!

EDIT: Ok, I think I like this scan a little better. (And I added a frame!) I added a little dark grey in some places but I really didn't change much. I didn't change anything about the beaks on this picture but I kept the suggestion in mind for the future. I think the one on the right may have looked good with a shine or something on the beak.. so thanks for the comments! I will probably do a study on light and shadows soon. :)

Excellent work! :la: :eager: Great character design and framing! :nod: :clap:

As long as you requested critique, it might be good if you could add some highlights and/or shading to the beaks to help bring out their rounded shape. Just a thought. And again, very nice work!

Imaginative grouping, the idea of a cardinal based griffin is certainly original. Snow with the diffused lighting effects would account for lack of shadows, if I saw this work unlabeled, I would have to say it was one of yours. It has that Zoe look about it. All in all, original and well done.
