To commemorate my favorite month (October) and my favorite holiday (Halloween), I'm doing a monster sketch per day.
This is a Gryphon, which I've taken some design liberties with.
Gryphons are known for having the head and wings of a falcon. I chose to
employ the characteristics of an owl instead, since they're also a
predatory bird, but with a far more interesting face. I also thought it
would be funny to draw my Gryphon sleeping in a wonky pose, similar to
how my cat Goonie likes to sleep. Gryphons are half cat, after all
(lion, to be exact), so it seemed like a good fit.
