The trick to drawing a resounding gryphon is in reassociating the disparate components of its anatomy. The lion’s “elbows” develop into the “heel” of the eagle’s leg, and the eagle’s “ankle” turns into the lion’s “wrist. ” continue those parallels in brain whilst developing your gryphon. Step eight Now i take advantage of the softer 2B pencil to darken the shadows, in particular at the wings and face. I go back to the HB sometimes for mixing darker parts into lighter ones.
