I have had a soft spot in my heart for gryphons since I was a youngun'. They are often found in Greek mythology, guarding the gold of the north from the one-eyed Arimaspians. The gryphon is typically thought to have the head and wings of an eagle, and the body of a lion. Since the gryphons of lore are typically majestic, fierce and bloodthirsty creatures, I thought it would be fun to depict sort of a gryphon housepet, if you would. The kind that wouldn't mind a pat on the head and maybe a treat. I couldn't decide on one perfect color scheme, so I settled on a main concept and two color variants. I also think this figure would work well as a paint your own type.
