Canyphon by Firiel
Canyphon by Firiel


A friend requested a "canyphon"--that is a canine-based gryphon. I only meant it to be a quick sketch, not anything that would take away from my current higher-priority projects, but it was fun and I got involved.

IcalatariHe squawks, doesn't he? -_-

FirielPossibly. Actually, I don't know what contributes more into his voice. He might do kind of a little shriek that's almost a yip. Or he might sing/howl. He's a hawk-terrier, what do you think?

IcalatariHuh... well, actually, I think hawks make a kind of little purling trill sometimes when they're calling back and forth, and that would mix nicely with a puppy howl. ;)

FirielThanks for commenting, pixiewolf. :)

I'm not sure if that was meant to be a completely rhetorical question or not, but in this case, two ref photos, one failed draft, some pre-sketching, and a couple of really nice fine tipped pens. In general, I guess I practice a lot. *shrug*

luckylace222;O; I WISH gryphons could be pets....<3

Love the brown pen detail! It really hashes out the dept of the feathers!

FirielThank you! ^.^
And so do I, sometimes. If magical and/or fantasy creatures could be willed into existence for human companionship, I'd have a whole menagerie by now. :p
