Travel in Pair [The Griffin's Egg] by AssasinMonkey Travel in Pair [The Griffin's Egg] by AssasinMonkey
Commission done for :icongrifen: for his small book named "The Griffin's Egg"
"The Griffin's Egg" 's first chapter:
L'uovo di grifone - Capitolo 1L'uovo di grifone
Capitolo 1
Mi sono sempre chiesto come Rasìa riesca a trascinarmi nelle sue pazze avventure: se qualche volta mi imponessi ci risparmieremmo tanti guai. Ciononostante la conosco bene, se non gli dessi retta il suo carattere indipendente e deciso la spingerebbe ad agire da sola, perciò la assecondo per starle vicino e proteggerla da ogni male. La amo e per lei farei più di quanto io stesso potrei immaginare, eppure per lungo tempo non trovai il coraggio di confessarle quello che provavo; fu solo dopo una pericolosa avventura che finalmente sentii l'ardire di farmi avanti.
In quell'occasione Rasìa volle rubare un uovo dei grifoni di Tegònipal, anche se mi presentò l'idea definendola come “prendere in prestito”, e mi chiese se fossi stato disposto ad aiutarla. Io mi opposi e cercai, inutilmente, di farla desistere, e lei si giustificò dicendo che era per “una buona causa&

My additional title "Travel in Pair" is just an unrelated name I gave for this upload.
It's also my first work I'm putting up for prints here, exciting! Any feedback on that would be welcome as well.

One of my larger works as of recent containing 3 big elements for me the characters, structures and environments.
Worked on this over the course of about just 2-3 weeks I think. It kept its daily pace nicely and it went by quite fast, getting it to where it's now.

It's also big non-MLP work?! :P

Hoping ya'll like it! It was great to work on this piece.

Approx Time: 27 Hours

i was thinking about the right words but...duude, that's just glorious =) the details O_O (especially in/at/on the castle)

:D Thanks, the Monestary/Fort/Castle was fun to do. I barely do any structures or architecture, so it was kind of a puzzle as well.
Then it's always nice to see it actually work out :P

Yeah, it turned out very well =) And it could be because i saw you making them bu i love the two Griffins =)

Nice, that detail in the character and the castle looks great. Nice being able to see the strokes on the mountain, not a textured brush though?

Used 2 standard photoshop brushes. Or well, the standard round brush and the "standard" chalk brush.
So I guess slightly textured hah :P
