Peacock Gryphon by Nambroth Peacock Gryphon by Nambroth
A commission for :icondarknatasha:, as she requested a gryphon flying with birds, and gave me the option to make it peacock-based!

The birds are Imperial Pied Pigeons, native to India (as are wild Indian peafowl).

Peafowl can fly-- even with their trains fully grown-- but they are not necessarily agile and graceful like the pigeons are. I imagine that PeaGryph here is a bit exasperated with his companions...

Ink and Watercolor, 8" x 13"

This has a lot of iridescent pigments and as such didn't scan terribly well.

This is amazingly beautiful! It's incredibly detailed and yet such a bold, captivating piece. I love how the background is done, as well, and the feathers and colors are just stunning.
