Black Gryphon Fledgeling by Magweno Black Gryphon Fledgeling by Magweno

Available here!



This is a young black gryphon. At the moment his favourite food is anything red - red currants, rosehips, tomatoes, cherries, raw meat, apples and I even saw him taking an experimental chomp at a rose the other day.

He measures approximately 8" tall from heels to ear-tufts.
He is weighted with steel-shot and stuffed with polyester
His body is machine sewn from cuddlesoft fur and his ruff and tail are 100% polyester fake fur.
All the feathers on him are real chicken feathers sourced from happy, healthy birds.
His head is cast resin from an original sculpt, as are his antlers, paws and feet.

I actually finished and phorographed him and his brother over a month ago but was too shy to upload them. I just wasn't happy with how they turned out - but they've grown on me now. What do you think?

He's so adorable! You shouldn't have been shy at all... If I hadn't just commissioned a kirin, I would be buying him. Maybe if he's still available when my next paycheck comes. <3

He's so cuuuute! I love the use of real feathers on your plushes, it just gives them that little edge, that little spark. And dem deep dark eyes! <3 You shouldn't have been shy about uploading him, he's so adorable. Now where's his brother?

Seriously, I think you should make more like him. I think he's one of your best when it comes to your soft-bodied art doll concepts, very well done.
