Working on a griffin-centered piece of writing myself, you do one of the most fantastic jobs I've ever seen of making them really come alive. Thanks for putting pieces like this out there. Brings to life some of the images I get in my head. Beautiful work!

This is awesome!

One thing I would suggest to further the concept of a divide would be a color temperature shift from one side of the picture to the next, so that the 2 gryphons have slightly different colored backdrops.

this is beautiful.  the colors are so perfect. the detail even in the shadows is well executed, and the eyes have so much emotion behind them.  great job on the beaks too, very realistic and the blue was a nice touch to pull in the environment ( like you did with the feathers as well)

I really like your general gryphon design. Their heads are more triangular, and keep a lot more feline in them than a lot of other gryphons I've seen. Makes them look really intelligent. And their eyes are so gorgeous in this picture.
