Oh man, new unique species, I like this it is so different, a housecat and gull crossover. I think this one of the smaller varieties of bird out there I have not seen around, but all together very impressive to see. I like the little car ears on this bird, very nice work done. :)

My boyfriend just recently got me into the game and I love most the artwork on it and I would LOVE it if my skills were high enough to be honored on a card like that, haha. I really think your artwork though is amazing and would awesome on a Magic Card, even if you didn't get to think of a name or it's stats/abilities; it would still be super awesometastic and amazing! IF you ever get one, let me know!!! :D I'd love to hunt it down, haha. :) Keep up the great work!

Now you've got me thinking of making a card game for gryphons. This would make some excellent card artwork - I might mock it up sometime. Thanks for the idea.

Sparkanine Featured By Owner Mar 31, 2013
Yeah, Griffins, Gryphons- however you wish to spell it, haha; they are amazing creatures and they even have some excellent art work in Magic the Gathering. Though basing a card game souly off of them might be a bit hard, then again- stranger card games have happened. If you do come up with something though, please allow me to know and I'll look into them ^_^ Glad I can help spark inspiration though for a random person with a comment on another person's page! :D See you around.

I absolutely adore this <3 90% of the gryphons I see are crosses with some kind of bird of prey; rarely ever do I see a seabird! Excellent work.
