Macaw Griffon by aragornbird Macaw Griffon by aragornbird
Hooray, after several failed attempts, I finally finished a digital painting that I'm satisfied with. It's my first serious digital artwork, as well as my first time using a tablet AND Painter 8. As for the picture itself, well, it's just a griffon with a scarlet macaw's plumage.

Painter + Photoshop

Whoa! To me, it it looks like a Jungle Griffon, wth a macaw's head and wings and a monkey's legs (And the tail of a lion). Love it! :happybounce:

You should have made the lion part a jaguar! Get the whole South American thing going on.

I love how it looks like a hawk, but still manages to retain its macaw-y goodness. Also, I think an interesting concept would've been to make the body a jaguar's as apposed to a lion, thinking how it lives in the jungle and all.

ANYHOOT! Great job!

I like griffons, and I love Macaws (in fact I didn't knew it is called a "macaw", here it's "arara")

Okay so...I don't usually like gryphon's with anything other than hawk falcon or eagle parts, but you really did a good job on this. Especially considering it was one of your first attempts at digital art.
Heh. You even did the talons well. I definitely find that impressive after just about every attempt of mine at talons has failed.
