This is not a very good picture.
But I'm uploading it anyway mainly as a sort of, uh, 'statement'... to myself.
I haven't drawn anything as 'just a picture for the sake of being a picture' in ages - more than a year, probably - but I want to get back into the habit in order to improve. So, I drew this, since I was designing it as a minor boss/random monster in MARDEK 3 anyway, and I'm aware that it turned out poorly but submitting in here will (hopefully) motivate me to try harder on something in order to replace it...

It took like half an hour, and I really didn't put in much effort at all because I was so lacking in passion about it.
But yes, uh... Hopefully I'll start drawing more often from now on...

I don't think it really matters exactly what the picture is, although I think it seems like a llama, but it is a really good picture. I think people should take their time to appreciate the beauty of such things that may not be so apparent. By the way, the wing texture seems to be... electronic? It seems it was made by man, or lingon.

Myes, I think someone mentioned that before, actually. I hadn't thought about it that way, but when it's pointed out, it's true. This would technically be a chimera rather than a griffin... I suppose...

...Then again, since there's no factual records of griffins *or* chimeras, there's a possibility that griffins are actually just flying pugs! O_o

WOW guys, really? ONLY in GREEK MYTHOLOGY does it say that the griffin is merely half eagle and half lion. Even though the percentages are actually about 36% lion, but still. It has been told this way for a long time and therefore people accepted it as that. However, since there is no actual creature, you may use your imagination to create your own version as Mr.Pseudolonewolf has done. Therefore, it does not matter if it has a snake tail or not. A lion's tail would look wimpy anyways.

ALSO if you are referring to the Greek Mythology by determining that it is not a griffin and a chimera, you are wrong. I think that a chimera has a mountain goat mixed in there somewhere... I think. That is how he's on a mountain right?

I think it has to be "Highly Extremely Rare Griffin"

Does it really matter whether or not its a griffin? Its an optional boss you fight early on in Mardek 3 and there really isn't much in that game that makes sense.

Well, I don't know by mythical beasts as well as I should, but I think you're right. That is, unless this is a mutated super griffin, who was bitten by a radioactive... yalortian boa? Whatever kind of snake has green skin and glowing red eyes.(Yeah, yalortian boa fits.) Anyway, he would become: The snake griffin!

Nah, a chimera has three heads- this strange semi-griffin has only two. I suppose the snake tail was just a random touch, which is actually quite fitting- a random touch on a random boss, I guess.
