Miscalculation by Nambroth Miscalculation by Nambroth
A struggle that is nearly as old as life itself; the struggle between predator and prey. The prey must be alert and quick to survive, and the predator must hunt to survive.

Most hunts do not end in success. Here, there was a slight miscalculation, and a miss... but the chase is not over.

Quick, fun and loose commission for Stormdancer of his gryphon-self hunting.

Painted in Corel Painter.

That's so bittersweet. Harray for the deer who got away, boo for the gryphon who missed the deer. Though very nice picture.

waaow this really stunned me!
Directly when I saw it, it was like I was there. I Could really se the grip continue running out of that frozen moment and hear those muffled bas sounds in the ground from his heavy running action, and perhaps hear that birdish scream from him.
Cool, definitely worth faving!:)

The Griffon is amazing! The action pose is just phenomenal! I do feel there is a lack of "life" in the deer. Maybe change the eye to show fear or something?
Well done!

My eye keeps being drawn to (of all places) the deer's rump. It just looks like it's solid even in a rough-for-you piece like this... you can almost feel the shape of the muscle with your eyes. Great stuff.

Usually when I see deer, it is that rump bouncing away from me at about mach 25. ;)
