Gryphon Tag by Nambroth Gryphon Tag by Nambroth
I imagine that flying critters could play tag a bunch of different ways, including snatching ribbons from one another!

This gryphon's colors/markings are based on the "Labradorite" scheme I used previously on Windstone pieces.

Ink and watercolor, approximately 7" x 10"

How do you do the backgrounds for your watercolor paintings (not the fern)? When I try to do a background it always comes out weird.
Thanks

I do a wash! Mastering washes can be tricky. I only got it through a lot of practice and playing around.

I love your watercolour and ink artwork. These two mediums work so well together. The fern in the top corner is a nice touch.

in Mercedes Lackey books involving the hawkbrothers the bondbirds are described as playing this way so i don't see why it would not work for gryphons

And in The Black Gryphon, also Mercades Lackey [And Larry Dixon I think], on Zhaneel's obstacle course, the gryphons wore ribbons to represent being wounded or killed when someone took them, ie war games :>
