Golden Gryphon by Magweno Golden Gryphon by Magweno
I made this guy aaaaages ago to experiment with wings. I didn't like them so I deemed him immediately unworthy for internet showcasing, but recently he's grown on me so I'm offering him up tentatively for you.

He is for sale on my Etsy.

Hello Maddy!! Just wanted to let you know that Goldy here has arrived safely in the post this morning, and has gone straight into my display case! (I was worried that if I left him out I'd only end up breaking him.. like I did with Tilly! lol) .. he's absolutely adorable and so cute! I love the way you've made his wings and when I unwrapped him and he was all bound up in a ball he was adorable.. - it was almost like he was being born! LOL :D
His face/eyes are even cuter in real life, and I love how you've done the wings.. can't get my head around it! :)
Lovely stuff, thanks! ^_^
:heart:

Ah that's great! Yeah they go to sleep when they get posted, cuddled up in bubble wrap :XD: I'm glad you like him, I don't know what I was thinking when I made his wings; gold ink?! :faint:

If you have a spare minute could you leave some feedback on my Etsy page? It's good for potential buyers to see positive reviews.. :aww:

The gold ink didn't take too well, I guess? It's a shame, the effect/theory is cool! :]
I'm new to etsy (only made an account so I could buy this guy!) but after much searching I found out how to leave feedback!! LOL .. hey, I don't know how it works yet, but I saw one of your other items is reserved..?.. - How does reserving work? .. I'd really love to buy Athur from you to keep Goldie company but I don't have the cash reserves atm.. - waiting for payment from a couple of doll customers though.. - what are the chances of being able to reserve him? :]

Reserving works in that I write RESERVED in the title, haha! It's really low key, Nebel is reserved cos she was a commission, I'm waiting for her owner to pay for her.

Well, usually I'd be more than happy to reserve him for you but I'm really strapped for cash at the minute. (Graduating is expensive ): ) I could reserve him for you for a couple of days though.

hey don't envy you babe! - been through that whole graduating bit and found it pretty stressful all in all... not to mention the fact I had to soak out most of my dreadlocks just so my mum could stand to look at my graduation photos :( lol
- I hope it's awesome for you, I'm sure it's something you'll never forget! :)

Your animals remind me so much of the different lifeforms in The Dark Crystal.
This one is no different.

I'm curious to know, where do you get your fur from?
Reply

Magweno Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2011  Professional Artisan Crafter
This fur I got from a dress makers shop in Newcastle, but I usually buy online from [link] . Most websites for buying fur will send you free samples which is great to make sure it's what you want/need.
