I have recently entered a personal trade with a fellow artist on ATCs for all, and his request presented me with a real challenge. He was asking could I draw him a Griffon, the mythical guardian of the sun and protector of the innocent, a creature with a lions body and an eagles head, wings and claws. I have never before drawn an eagle, a lion or even a chimera (creature made from two or more different species). It was a bit tricky as I wanted to put emphasis on the protector of the innocent aspect, but he looked as if he was about to eat all his protegés. I made him pose in front of a radient sun instead.
