Build a Gryphon - Tut + Files by Lizkay Build a Gryphon - Tut + Files by Lizkay
Heya!
So this is one of the secret project I was working on lately..

a GRYPHON CHARACTER BUILDER!

The mentioned PNG File Set can be downloaded here:

The mentioned GIF File Set can be downloaded here:

All other questions should be answered in the tutorial text above, which can also be found in GERMAN here:
[link]

IMPORTANT: the usage of this is generally free, but this means, IT SHALL NOT BE USED for commercial artwork, resp. artworks you want to sell, prints for example. also if you submit artwork based on this builder add a link to the original here or add a text line to the picture itself which tells that the original lineart is from this builder resp. me. ;)

Thanks! Hope you enjoy this! :heart:

ADD-ON: the awesome :iconwwsf: made an interactive html version of this builder, so you can build your gryphon without using a graphic programm ;), it can be found here:

Thanks so much for this template, I was finally able to get the griffin that's been pecking the artistic side of my brain, out.

It was my pleasure.

The prog. seemed to WORK fine but it was somewhat limited. I guess its not 100% yet?

Do you think this would work with Macromedia Fireworks? I desperately want to try it- it looks so cool!

I do tried to build something similar with flash (.. but I totall su%&$ in it XD ) the problem is that I want to have an useful outline later on, but to make a flash I need to fill the parts at least with white color so you that you don't see any overlapping or shining through areas, that is nice for building, but I think it's harder to color that later on... or you include the color function also into flash, but I bet that's very complicated to make... ;)

Ah, you misread me - I'm not referring to flash I'm referring to Fireworks, which is an image editing package - I got it free with Flash when I downloaded it.

Thanks for telling me though, I probably would have needed it. ;)

I do have fireworks as well, but never made more than short animations in there, not sure what it really offers at all ;)

I use it mostly to edit out the licence plates of the vehicles in my photoshoots, and to crop pictures. It's no problem. Thank you anyway!
