Abstract Gryphon (for sale!) by Novawuff Abstract Gryphon (for sale!) by Novawuff
Okay.. I didn't mean for this to turn out this way. It was supposed to be a commission, but my art brain had some kind of spaz attack halfway through and It just didn't go the way I wanted to at all... I'd worked on it all day, and by 5am, I was so frustrated I was in tears. I threw it up on a shelf for a couple weeks, until just now.
I remembered it looking awful and horrible and not how I wanted... but when I looked at it from a different perspective, it was actually kind of neat. I've not done abstract art before, but I think this is what it became, despite me having other plans.
Art that tells a story about it's creation and it's creator is kind of interesting, I think.
Things don't always go as planned, but I think maybe life is about picking yourself up, scrubbing off the blood, and making the best of it.
So! I would like to sell this.. it's watercolor, copic marker, and prismacolor colored pencils. The original is 8x11 inches.
There's no way I will ever get paid for the actual hours I put into it.. because those are more than I'd like to consider. I know it doesn't look like it.. I must have erased and redrawn the beak/eye area half a dozen times x.x
Going to ask $40 and hope for the best. :}

Excellent texture, and the colors are interesting too. The beak looks ok. I've tried to do them in the past with a bit of trouble, so I understand the difficulty.

The wide eyed eagle
got a view on me
like a sequel
the eagle's crying free
high above
between the clouds
no borders or signs
can stop the shouts
inside the calm
the freedom's free
to join the secret of the spirits tree

Well, the only thing with that is that if it gets lost.. we're sort of both out of luck! if you feel like risking it, that's alright with me. :}
