Moonlight in the Dayglow by Nambroth Moonlight in the Dayglow by Nambroth
A speedpainting commission for :icontearsraven: of her wingless gryphon, Moonlight.

A speedpainting is one that I don't take out to complete refinement and thus is 'speedier' for me to do. :)

Heavily inspired by my trip up the west coast of the USA last month. The little bird is a Golden-Crowned Kinglet, see detail: [link]
If it helps, he is oriented with his beak pointing toward the ground. :)


Corel Painter: oil pastels and "realbristle" brush tools.

No one can quite do gryphons like you do!  Amazing detail that light effect is so ethereal.
