How to draw a griffin
Griffin is a mythical creature with the body, tail, and back legs of a lion; the head and wings of an eagle. It dates back to Egyptian mythology.
Mark off the width and height of the griffin. Draw two ovals that will help to define the places for its head and body. Draw a line, which will act as the center of its beak.
Sketch the griffin’s body and neck. Draw a guideline for its tail.
Define the places for the legs, ears and wings.
Add the griffin’s beak, ears, wings, legs and upper arms.
Draw the eye, tongue, pasterns, toes and fur on the legs, tail and wing linings of the griffin.
Detail the shape of the ears, legs, wings and eye.
Work on the figure, paying special attention to detail.
Contour the griffin, trying to vary the thickness and darkness of the line. Add more detail and add some grass. Erase all guidelines.
