The art of Thornwolf
My Paint Your Own Windstone Gryph
X posted to windstone_ed and my personal journal.

I finally finished it! Granted it only took about 2 days but I'm really pleased with the result. I did Niko markings on this one, hence the merling and the "blue" markings. I noticed some folks had their gryphons clutching stones and the like, and I was about to do this too but I went to the craft store and got a bit creative. I found this little charm set that had "love" charms and one set had a heart lock and a key, so I got a chain, painted it to look corroded, painted the charm a bit, and made her holding a heart lock. When I paint one for my boyfriend he's going to be holding the key charm :D

Unfortunately the pictures don't really do it justice, I wish I had a better camera *whine* but when I get a chance I'll take some better photos.

This was loads of fun!

For those interested, I am available for commissions to custom paint your Windstone Gryph at $100. As you can see I can get pretty detailed and if you think about it, this is how much you would usually pay total to have a non custom already painted Windstone =)

Very cool! You did a good job with the merle markings. :) And I love the dark 'sleeves' on the hind legs.

It looks really nice! I like that the colors aren't too shiny, it looks really soft and natural. :3

Pardon my ignorance, but if I wanted to get an unpainted gryph, where could I find one of those? :o

Last week some auctions were posted and it was first come first serve, but they will be doing them again, check out the community and keep any eye out for when the next round of auctions go up so you can snag one =)

>:O Awesome! I actually saw the auctions after I asked, but you know, too late for that I guess. I'd love to paint one of those. :D
