Friend and fellow White Cloud Worlds contributor, Tanya Marriott, had cast a bronze prototype from a Zbrush sculpt of her Baby Gryphon character and I though it would make a grand gift for my partner Mel. Rather than a monetary exchange we wrangled an art trade. A gryphon for a gryphon seemed appropriate. For my character, I wanted to convey a sense of this entity as a hyper-dimensional being, existing in various spacial states at any point in time, hence the multiple heads seeing in all directions.
