Gyrfalcon Gryphon

Recommended Posts

I think it came out very well, nice job! I like the unique paint scheme.

I am seriously considering doing more gryphons like this. Do the various birds of prey that strike my fancy as gryphons. And maybe eventually do the front of as standard with various cat markings on that back as I gain confidence in painting patterns.

Osprey are pretty, but I did not feel confident enough for doing the margins so I selected the gyrfalcon. It was fun to learn about them as well. i like to read up on the animals I use for inspiration and they are fascinating as raptors go. I need to get another griffon.

 

Then I will select my next raptor to use for a gryphon.

Is that one bone, metal, or not reaper? Nice job, on the patterning. I am assuming the poor image is washing out a lot of the shading.

 

Though as a suggestion from way too much experience with large birds, what looks like a mid slate blue from a distance is actually a light tan overlay over a much darker grey core. It gives the impression of a very strong highlight at the top of the beak and claw,even though it's light passing through the translucent portion.

It is the Bones Griffon. 

 

Huh. I had not realized that fact. I was going off pictures of them. I'll experiment with it next time to see if I can get a more realistic look to the beak in the future.

Thank you Evilhalfling. I appreciate the compliment. It would be fun to do this later when I get even better at painting minis.
