Egyptian Gryphon - on Papyrus by Lizkay Egyptian Gryphon - on Papyrus by Lizkay
Egyptian style Gryphon, painted on real handmade Papyrus, using gold acrylic-marker and indian ink brushpen.
It's actually created for an upcoming Convention, if it won't sell there, it will be open for an auction ;)

Curiously, what are your sources for the gryphon?  I've had trouble looking for Egyptian Gryphon images except for about a dozen photos  on-line and from the MET.

I mostly looked at wings, falcons and lions featured in various egyptian hieroglyphes and paintings and 'borrowed' style elements here and there.
Wings come in a more 'hooked' like shape in most of the egyptian winged creatures you see, but I personally prefered the straight wings as usually visible on Horus or Wadjet ;)
I am probably far away from being historical correct with my gryphon here though ^^;

Obviously it sold there. Not really a surprise. XD
Really nice done! Looks like the historians have to make room for another god in that pantheon. ;)

Thanks a lot! :heart:
I still have it ;p but it got reserved for another upcoming Convention, so I hope to sell it there :D
I actually wanted to sell it online but it got framed with a heavy black and gold real glass frame now, which made it impossible to ship/mail it to decent prize.  ^^;

I love the design - and the balance between 'white,' black and gold is so natural looking but also eye-catching at the same time.

Also, 'real handmade papyrus' - that just makes it extra awesome :wow:

Looks awesome! Is it tricky to paint on Papyrus?

It's rather wobbly, you definitely need to be very 'soft' with all the tools our you will snap into the notches between the papyrus fibres ;)

I dig the way you made this! Looks like it would fit right in among dancing pharoahs and just-a-little-too-proud-cats that hang out on pyramid walls.
