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!

Lynx

 Art done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is rather 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 natrually 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 of being 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 twords 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 done by xXSadieKaneXx

Lyra is very concealed and secretive. She rarely shows emotion and looks down on those who do. She is insanely obervative and could possibly rub off as edgy. Lyra can be rudely scarcastic, and may accidently hurt you. Don't expect remorse.  Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. She WILL kill. 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 doesn't talk much either. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face and long hair.

I know. That is why I want someone to personalize it so I don't have art theft.

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.

I can try! I'll change it up a bit to not copy the artist, but we'll see how it turns out :D

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.

side note: those arent even

side note: those arent even her own designs. thats somebody commissioning her. as in somebody literally paid her to draw their character. so thats like, double theft? stealing a design and art that belong to two different people. bad bad bad

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 ):
