Temporary, hopefully.
Sorry guys,

Due to the lack of entries and enthusiam (there were only *3* entries out of a community of 43), this community is Closed. I'm still undecided if this close is permanant or temporary, and may open it up again in the future.

Thank you luvloz, fishyboner, and myrror for your entries for Nyo. It's greatly appreciated by both myself and Nyokirrr.

I finally got my entry done.
Sorry about taking so long, I wasn't expecting to be stuck working 6 days a week. I had fun doing this one, thanks Nyokirrr.

Lack of entries is bad for your health
Due to the lack of entries (only two!), I am forced to extend the deadline. (thank you for the two who have put in entries). I really shouldn't be extending this because it was extended to begin with. I understand that people were on vacation or busy because of the holidays, but I do need entries to make this community work.

I am extending the deadline until MONDAY, JANUARY 10th. I hate to be harsh, but if I contunue to see a lack of entries, this time or other rounds, I will be forced to close the community (temporarily or permanant).

C'mon guys! I need your help to make ths community work.

Let's see some entries!

I decided to do a backview Ewea, surrounded by her aura.

Pretty much focused on the wings, and I feel I still got them too small ^^
Still hope you like it, Nyo...

Descriptions of Nyokirrr and Ewea.
First, many thanks to everybody to have chosen my humble drawings. May also your artwork bring a bit of peace to the heart of those who like it during this month of December.

You have the choice between Ewea Coirlet and Nyokirrr Sacrawez. Currently I have a slight preference for Ewea.

The descriptions are pasted from gryphon_xchange.

- LJ user: nyokirrr04
- E-mail: nyokirrr *at* tiscali.be

For both characters, I accept rating R for nudity - for this community, please keep nudity tasteful.
Nor gore neither violence.

Name: Ewea COIRLET. This character is somewhat similar fo what I wish to become, I mean Her nature. There's also the symbol of albinism that means much to me.
Gender: Female.
Max rating of picture (G-R): I don't mind. Neither gore nor violence. Nudity is accepted.
Forequarters: European buzzard. Pure white. Clawed wings.
Hindquarters: European wild cat. Pure white.
Eyes: RED EYES: She's albino. No black pupil: the pupil is red also.
The color of the eye of an albino bird is something like this: dark red.

Description: here, scroll down till you find Ewea COIRLET + the general description of the Fen Gryphon.
She looks as if She had no age.
Update: you can draw the albino Matriarch surrounded by Her bright aura that has the reflects of the rainbow.
Accessories (clothing, jewelry, weapons, etc):
See the drawings. A bright blue ring on Her right hand.

Personality: Kind, wise, friendly, tender.

Anything else we should know:
1- Please no nipples!!!
2- She's the Fen Gryphon Matriarch.
3- The Fen Gryphon symbol is this flower:

Reference Pictures (please give full URLs. If you have none, please at least include reference pictures of the species):
http://www.deviantart.com/view/5954835/ accurate.
http://www.deviantart.com/view/5647830/ from lizkay. The wings should be larger, the eyes without black point, and the beak white as well.
http://www.deviantart.com/view/8351367/ quadrupedal
http://www.deviantart.com/view/9479510/ by puffinmuffin - WOW, the eyes: accurate color.
EDIT: http://www.deviantart.com/view/13297722/ - Brand new pic, anthro, in Her village.

European wild cat:

Buzzard (this one is leucistic, albino ones have red eyes!) - Thanks to Flamkess aka drzemlik }:>
So give Her albino red eyes.

Theme (optional, ignore if you don't want one):
Meditative, contemplative, flying over the bogs, saluting the Nature, gathering plants for herbalist's, sitting under an oak or an alder... well, what a powerful white wizard is able to do.
You can draw Her anthro or quadrupedal (She's a shapeshifter), as you prefer.

Name: Nyokirrr SACRAWEZ (that's my were side, I'm a weregryphon }:>)
Gender: M
Max rating of picture (G-R): Doesn't matter, tasteful nudity's alright for me. Please neither gore nor violence.
Species: Fen Gryphon.
Forequarters: European common buzzard; clawed large wings.
Hindquarters: European wild cat.
Eyes: Buzzard-like, green.

Description: http://pub126.ezboard.com/fgryphonguildfrm20.showMessage?topicID=423.topic : Check the general Fen Gryphon description and Nyokirrr's.

Accessories (clothing, jewelry, weapons, etc): Very simple: just don't forget the white bog flower medal:

Personality: Kind, generally cheerful.

Anything else we should know: He's a shapeshifter; I'd prefer you to draw him anthro, bipedal Fen Gryphon.

Reference Pictures (please give full URLs. If you have none, please at least include reference pictures of the species):

http://dtorresan.free.fr/buse%20variable/3-buses.jpg ; http://www.trient.ch/_borders/busevariable.jpg (colors should be a bit warmer).

Theme (optional, ignore if you don't want one): anything in marshes, bogs, peat lands, for he's a Master of the Bogs.

I think that's all.

Have fun! - Nyo.

Oops, for some reason, the screened comments thing didn't work O.o Nevertheless, thank you for all of your comments. It has helped me decide where to go to next- and you're right. We need more members and the community needs to have more rounds.

So I ask shamelessly to plug the community- it will bring in new people and fresher ideas so that we're not drawing the same people all the time. I wish there was an incentive we could offer to draw more people in and keep them in. I'm still open for any suggestions you guys might have

I think also, even if people didn't have a gryphon character, they are welcome to join. When it's their turn, they could post a description of their non gryphon character, and we could turn it into one. It would be interesting to see all of the different interpretations.

So without further ado, please post a description Nyo!

I'll put up an entry due date after the description is up.
12:53 pm
and the winner is...?
Thank you so much to simplysithel for putting up the pictures and poll for me! I should be back for good. My computer just had a little grumpy thing going.

The new chosen is....



My question to everyone is... should we proceed with an Honorary, or go to the next chosen?

If we proceed with an honorary, I still need some submissions! C'mon, guys- who do YOU think should be an honorary chosen?

Comments will be screened to keep it anonymous, so tell me who and why they should be.

If we decide to do an honorary, then Nyo's round will begin after that.

Chosen One for Myrror's round
Poll #391645 Artwork of Myrror

Who should be the next chosen one?


Because Sithel is writing this poll, you can take this moment to wittyly respond with:

My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.
Live long and prosper
Luke, I am your father





Current Mood: food-ish

Is anyone able to put up the pictures and poll for me? I am without the use of another computer again until Tuesday, because mine doesn't work right now. (I'm on a different one now, but I don't have time to put up a poll) Thank you in advance, in case anyone can. If not, you will all have to wait.

Otherwise, I'll have to delay the polls at least until then. I swear, sometimes I think I'll never get a poll up on time O.o;

Thank you for everyone's patience!

~Tyr, quite the frazzled one

Dark playing games
I hope I get this in on time, the time difference always confuses me. Anyway, I chose to go with Dark in her gryphonic form. I used the same pose as you did when you drew Fessonia, I hope you don't mind Myrror.


I'm still planning on colouring this for you, but extra shifts at work keep getting in the way.

She's the size of a house cat!
... I just had a hard time taking "Doomphoenix" seriously. I'm sorry. But in no way can something whose description read as a multicolored fluff ball the size of a house cat be fear inspiring as I feel the description was intended to be. I think I'm getting too cynical for some gryphons even though mine is no more logical then the rest. "Why back in my day...." but ya'll were drawing gryphons before I even thought up mine so what am I saying?
Anyway, here is my smirk and here is my image entry for Myrror's "Doomphoenix"

The title of my piece is 'Two seconds before the rainbow aura is turned on'...Collapse )

Current Mood: whimsical

I never thought I'd win one of these things ^^;;

Anyway, since Dark's the character that has gryphon forms, I'll give you her information, and her two main gryphonic forms:

Read more...Collapse ) Yah, clipped from the GAX files.

Since she is a shapeshifter, feel free to play around with the forms. The colorations basically stay they same, especially the eyes.

*bouncy-bouncy-bouncy* ^^;;;
