    Griffin - Sketch

    Here's a griffin I just started working on.. This is about an hours worth of time using a mouse. I always paint over these things again and again .. can never seem to get the detail or dramatic lighting I want. Guess that takes practice and patience. hmm...

    Use harder brushes and vary the color more. A blue-ish/silver tone in the shadow might make it pop a li'l more, the highlight more saturated yellow too. The wing crossing the tail are caught in a tangent there.

    Why are you using a mouse? Can't be healthy for your wrist. Kickass piece for mouse, but better get a tablet. Might help you speed things up.

    I will change the background later .. or more likely I will do a background on a different canvas and cut and paste him into it..
