it's a gryphon based off of a golden eagle head. Thank you for the advice, I'll keep it in mind when I re-draw it :3

might not be enough back of the head to it ...think about the structure and skull of the head underneath it.

For a critique i would have to say: Make the head a bit larger and longer and also push the eyes down a bit. But mostly look at raptor heads while drawing, it helps alot. I'm not exactly a Picasso when it comes to drawing but I hope this helps. C:

I like the rendering very much :)

Although, if I may offer one tiny critique, the anatomy could use some work. I'd recommend using some references of eagle heads, in fact, here's an excellent one: [link]

thank you

though I do have to point out that the assignment this week is to draw without using references. I will certainly use them next week

Totally blows my cpy griff out of the water...although I can kinda draw a beak o3o that's it...hate drawing feathers; whenever I try in math i always ragequit.

Resembles a cross between a golden eagle and a hawk. Epic winning! :D Very lovely expression and feathers are amazing... :)
