The gricken is the guardian of all hippies and homesteaders. Part chicken, goat, it is a productive and noble champion of productivity and the good life. The females are referred to as hennies and the males, roolies.

Apparently I wasn’t done with awkward randomly-generated gryphons. First set is here. This batch:

So I have a list of birds, a list of mammals, and random.org — that means randomly generated gryphons!. People still like those, right? These are, from top to bottom:

If it’s not obvious, my selection criteria for assembling the lists from which these critters were drawn was basically “has an amusing name”.

(PS I love the hell outta Kyle T. Webster's natural inkbrush; I've overused it by now but I can't stop, it feels just like being able to shade with pencil to me)

Ooooh some derptastic anatomy goin’ on here… those front legs, and pretty much the whole cheetah half, which does not look anything like a cheetah but more like how I draw Ayden’s stocky jaguar butt just stretched… geh
In any case, you may remember James the gryphon from way back in 2011. His butt apparently looked more like a cheetah’s back then. I wanted to try out tardigrad ‘s brush set, so I dug his old scrap off of the hard drive to color. 
Pretty happy with the bird half, not remotely happy with the back. More or less was using just one of the brushes; very interesting experience, I look forward to playing with them more.

Felt like a good day to design a griffin.
Lammergeier/Sumatran tiger. Inspired by those cool red lammers I’ve seen around, and also by Larry, the SF zoo’s gorgeous Sumatran tiger.
Didn’t quite turn out how I wanted it to…

Help Rebuild Two Lives after House Fire

I’ve known Snow/Kristina for probably a decade, if not longer. She’s a long time member of the Gryphon Guild and has always been a great friend to me. Shortly before work ended, she came on to the Guild’s chat to let us know her house was on fire. She was okay and her friend, Moonyen, was okay. Moonyen was out with her dog Patches, but Snow’s cats were still inside. 

About an hour or so later, they found the cats in the basement, still alive. Thank god. But the house is totaled, and their possessions along with it. If you can spare a few bucks to help them rebuild their lives, I would greatly appreciate it. If not, if you could pass it along, that would also be wonderful. Pictures and updates will be posted as they come. I know that they are headed to the house now to try to find what they can. I’ll update when I know something. Thanks everyone.

I know Snow/Kristina/Keristal very well. Amazingly, she, her roommate, their dog, and kitties all made it out alive. But they are going to need so much help to make it through this. 

This strikes so close to home for me. My parents lost everything in a fire — including my brother, before I was born. I lived with things hidden, tucked away in the house with burnt edges, smelling charred and smokey. Those secret memories of loss. The only things they recovered.

It is crushing when your friends from the internet go through such horrible loss and are struggling and you are SO FAR AWAY. I’m sure people on tumblr can identify with this. I want to be there to help them. This is currently what I can do.

Please, please help. If you can donate even a dollar, please do. Even if you can’t, please reblog this, spread the word, share on any social media you participate on, tell your friends and family. I can’t tell you how wonderful these people are, and how much Snow has touched my life. She is a fantastic moderator of the fantasy roleplay and fandom group that I have run since the mid-90s, and a rock in times of trouble for so many other people.

Please spread the word.

This article was released from Dickinson, ND’s newspaper. Snow linked us a little while ago. They went back to the house and were only able to recover a few items. They will try again tomorrow.  http://www.thedickinsonpress.com/event/article/id/70177/

.:: DONATE HERE ::.

They’ve lost pretty much everything. Very little was recoverable from the fire. They lost their books, art supplies, many things of sentimental value that can never be replaced. Local groups are helping them with some clothing and similar necessities, but it’s going to be a long road to recovery.

The cats are okay, but are receiving vet care — suffering from minor burns, possible blunt force trauma, and smoke inhalation. Helping these kitties heal is another necessary expense that Snow/Kristina would never dream of skimping on!!

They’re having a lot of trouble finding affordable housing in Dickinson, especially that will house them and their pets. 

Please, every dollar helps, and if you can’t give, please, spread the word. Every signal boost helps, too.
