A follow up to my previous post, a finished illustration! It's not from any particular story, but I was hoping to make a picture that was a fairly complex composition with lots of figures, but encapsulates a moment in something that feels like it's got more of a context. I don't see griffins nearly as much as I'd like to in fantasy paintings, and they're fun sorts of things to draw.
Also took the time to document the process a bit in a video. Not terribly long, but you'll see I changed my mind a bit about the thieves as I went. As occasionally happens, I eventually went back to what I'd started with. A fun piece to do, anyhow!
