HOORAY! I finally got some amazing photos of Tierney in all her glory, thanks to my local friends! We spent a wonderful afternoon in the Arboretum on a warm day; not intolerable thanks to how light and maneuverable the costume is (PLUS I gave the EZCool neck cooling collar a go and it was wonderful)!
I didn’t include images of me with the kids, since I want to focus on only a small sampling of R’s frankly beautiful photos, but we were a hit and frequently paused in posing to attend to the many admirers. :) I hope to post a link to more of the day’s photos later!
Thanks to R Riley McCourt, Mare and Wylie for posing with me and helping me out so much, and of course Clockwork Creature Studios, Qarrezel, Kifu, and Mat and Velvet for their amazing work on bringing Tierney to life!
"Descending Ruby Drops"
Another wonderful fully artistic freedom gryphon, only caveat being include ‘magpie’ Gosh I loved painting this piece. He’s greener than your average ‘pie but I think he just has a more violent irridescence, and when the light is strong he simply glows!

Cute deer-birds by the artist Clovercoin of Deviantart.
This was the door sign for the GuildMeet! I also made stickers and magnets for the swag boxes for everyone who came. Scrub Jay/Cougar gryph. I had a huge amount of help on this, so I can’t really call it my art, it’s a group effort! From screaminggoatbarn, duel-styx, and nambroth, who in the end basically drew the entire body when I asked for redlining help, which I then badly eyeballed and copied. >_> So all remaining horridness is my own.
Pencil and watercolor with a bit of gouache.

Wanted to work on this some more, but am already cutting it quite close for today. Maybe later!
Closing in on GuildMeet 2014. Look a my fancy bind-work!

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.
