Posable Gryphon by LovelyTwistofNature Posable Gryphon by LovelyTwistofNature
Meet my newest posable, lovingly dubbed "Griffy" for now. He is approximately a foot long and maybe 7'' tall, with a wingspan of about 14". I am in LOVE with him! He is by far, constuction wise and sculpting wise, my best posable yet. YAY!

hi again! im goint to start my great griffin art doll, but have never created wings before. can i ask how you model the wings? what i mean by this is, that note i sent you about looping the wire also has a display armature with wings, is that how you form them, just wire? also, how do you attach the feathers?

There are some things you are going to have to develop on your own love! I have spent years honing my methods, and I strongly believe that is the best way to learn. I haven't even fully perfected my methods yet. Trial and error! You will find the best method for you.

Thank you so much for the terrific comment. That really means a lot to me!

If you want more information on a commission, you can note me or look in my journal for the entry "Update" :) I have some base prices but I am absolutely willing to work with you if you have a different budget. Also, even if you ask me for information, You don't need to feel obligated to commission me right now.

Omg he is STUNNING! :wow: The natural fluffy colours are beautiful, and are those stripes on his bum a happy coincidence or did you paint them on? For some reason they make me stupidly happy haha.

I really like how you hid individual pheasant feathers here and there, they work really well in that long fur, it's like an easter egg hunt or something finding them. ^_^

And psh don't get me started on the wings :faint: (They're so amazing.)

Thank you so much Mads! :excited: I'm so glad you like him! I was hoping you would!

I planned out his pattern so he would have fluffies and stripes where I wanted them. I love them too! I'm glad you noticed! i;ve never worked with feathers much, it's good to know I did it well.

Thank you Maddy!!!! :bliss:
