So, hello!

I have been trying (unsuccessfully) to get this done for a while now. Can anybody draw a Gryphon for me? Her name is Duskcrest and I do have a reference.

I would like you to keep the same tail and coloring. I know it looks complicated so, you can simplify it. However, I would like Duskcrest to have green eyes rather than blue. And if you are willing for the challenge can you add a frill of feathers of her head? A mane almost leading from her neck to her head. Keep the pattern the same. And, feel free to some experimenting. Whether it's with style, or color choice.

 

I don't have a fixed appearance in my head yet. When it comes to the pose of the gryphon, I'm not picky. Make it as complicated or as simple as you like. My only request is that it displays a lot of the gryphon. 

And if you can, add her name ' Duskcrest' in a fancy don't next to her drawing. 

 

I doubt that this will get any comments, so thank you for reading this and maybe even considering!

Wolf

 Art was done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests, Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair Viking and she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud. She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal-like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is naturally good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability to be able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion towards humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

..............................Lyra

 .....................Art was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. She values her self-preservation. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn Nyght

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gail Cyrek

 Art was done by Katarile

Gail is very softspoken. She does not like attracting much attention as people have a tendency to stare. She is very insecure about her face and does her best to conceal it. She gets very annoyed if someone asks about it. However, with this silence comes the ability to listen. She observes the world around her and is able to spot even the tiniest of details. This silent brilliance has made her a stellar judge of character. She reads body language very well and has a certain flare of stubbornness about her. Still, she is very dark. Generally, when she speaks, most people cannot hear what she says, which is probably a good thing because what she does say is usually pretty dark or gory. She often says random and slightly disturbing things and speaks extremely softly anyone can barely hear her. Gail seems to be pretty timid but is generally ruthless. She is a bit of a pyromaniac and will do almost anything to get her way.

Reposting commission work without any link or nudge towards the original artist- Taking a piece from someone else with the intention to have the character's design copied apart from a few minor edits? It really screams theft to me.

Well, I'm just using it as a reference. I'm changing the pose, the face a little, and really as much as a can plus adding what Wolf wants. But, if you think it is too close to theft, I won't complete it. And Wolf, I think you should put a link or something about the original artist.

If the one you finish looks too close to the original one, we will change it.

 

Varku, it's not like the coloring is one of a kind. I've seen MANY brown gryphons with black tips.

Because there's so much artwork around you feel like you don't have to create your own ideas and that it's okay to just nab someone else's? (ideas someone likely paid for, too) without even as little as a small nudge, name drop or link to them? That's a bit silly if you ask me.

I'm honestly not sure what is more disrespectful actually; taking someone's work or taking someone's work and modifying it. I'm leaning towards the latter. Both are plagarism, but there's something just inherently rude about taking someone's idea, changing up a few things and then claiming it as one's own... If that makes sense!

Ok... sorry Wolf I don't feel like I should do it anymore... unless I make up a griffin completly on my own. But it's hard to use a reference like that and not copy it too much.

Taking someone's work,

Taking someone's work, changing the pose and adding some minor frills is still theft. Just because it's not copied down exactly the same way doesn't make it a new piece.

 

Here's an idea:

 

Instead of taking someone else's work and hunting around for someone else to modify it for free, how about you go to the original artist and commission some work from them.

 

Otherwise not only are you taking art from an artist who clearly put a lot of time and effort into creating this work, but if this was a commissioned piece you're also essentially stealing from the person who paid money to have this work done for them.

Maybe not a mane that wraps around, but a frill that leads down the neck. Or it can stop at the head. Whichever is eaiser or looks better

Changing the pose, eye color,

Changing the pose, eye color, and adding a mane are minor changes. It's the same character with a very small color edit and a minor addition. That's like taking a drawing of a person and asking someone to redraw it but change their hairstyle. It doesn't make it a new thing. Same person, minor change.

 

Like I said - if you're trying to get this photo copied badly enough to have been looking "for a while" to have it done, then you might as well go to the original artist and commission some work.

 

Creating art is just like any other job and artists should be compensated for their time and work.

 

If you don't want to pay for work, you don't get to use an image as you please unless otherwise stated by the artist.

Imagine someone taking a character design you paid someone else to draw for you. That'd feel bad.

This is why artists tend to go rock bottom with their prices, too ):
