Ostrich Griffin by Risachantag Ostrich Griffin by Risachantag
Ostrich and cheetah griffin. =) This one was an idea from my sister when she walked in on me sketching some rather odd griffins... and I just had to draw it!

I'm sure they're out there somewhere, galloping around so fast that no camera can catch them, hunting down those pesky migrating grasses and bushes.

Tools: Photoshop CS5, custom brush, Wacom Intuos tablet

I am so surprised someone else also came up with this! My friend's favourite animal is an ostrich crossed with a house cat, so I drew one of these as well! The cheetah spots are a lovely touch.

Love, Love, LOVE.

I tend to draw more traditional gryphs (Though I prefer to use snow leopards for the rears, love the tails!) and a wingless variety that I based on terror birds and oriental dragons, but I absolutely adore seeing gryphs like these.

I also love how you captured it in mid-stride. Did you have any difficulty choosing between the cheetah's bound and the ostrich's stride? Looks like you chose the latter, so I'm curious.

I chose a kind of 'trot', as I wanted it to look confident and comfortable despite being in a somewhat awkward form.

Love the creativity in this. After all what is a griffin but a mix of a bird and a cat? It kind of makes me wonder what other interesting combinations one could come up with.

Can its front keep ahead of its back, though? ;p

Srsly, though, that's a wonderful griffin - they can't all be raptors!
