Ok, just to let you know that I'm still stuck with a somewhat dodgy tablet but it's still working... for now. I'm working on commissions and other promised art but I'm in a big rush at the office so it keep being delayed. Sorry! :)

No tablet.... NO TABLET!!!!!!!!
I left it at my parents place last weekend. I blame my birthday celebrations.

So, I went back to the bases and pick up the pencil and paper again.
Sorry for the boring pose, I really need more practice with traditionnal mediums.

As I commission other artist frequently, I decided to do a "reference post" for my main characters so everything's at the same place.
This post is for Auri, my main and most cherished character.
Auri is a female, coffee and cream coloured gryphon. She evolved from another, older character: "Dragon d'Argent" my nameless silver dragon but I consider them as 2 separates entity now. She is reserved and secretive and prefer warm and dry climate.
People are welcome to draw her as other animals: creativity is always welcomed!

While surfing the news site, I came across this title:
Oil giants fear Gustav
Yes, FEAR Gustave!
I know, weak joke! XP



For those not in my close entourage: Gustave is the name of my pet dove.

Cross posted to wip_art and other comms. Sorry for the spammage.

This started out as a simple doodle but grew to monster dimensions when I started experimenting with a completely new style. I was aiming at realism but ended up with someting I can't really put a name on.

Some parts still need to be shaded and/or detailled but any crits and comments welcome as always. :)



Auri the coffe-and-cream coloured gryphon. I guess you could says she's my mascot.
I'm not really happy with her facial structure as she looks too baby-faced to be my Auri but I'm not sure how to fix it. Any pointers welcome.

Put under cut as some contain mild artistic nudity.

Woohoo! I finally have my driver license! It's about time! I've been delaying it for the past few years but it's becoming a neccissity now that I'm back in Abitibi. No more buses and taxis are ridiculously expensives.

I'm leaving on holiday during the first 2 weeks of August. I'll be heading to Lanaudière first, then Quebec City, here I come! You can expect a bunch of photos once I'm back!

One of the birds that was supposed to be on the dolphin pic. Once coloured, they didn't fit anymore so I'm saving it somewhere and I'll do something with it once I'm done with my commissions. :)
C&C are loved as always.


EDIT:
The bird is a white tern.
