I really love this artwork! You really did a good job!!! Gilda is my favorite griffin. It could me A little better if Gilda was standing on the rock. THAT will be 10% cooler. a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a and that's it... but still that is a really great picture I am looking at REALLY! YOU ARE AMAZING!

While I do disagree with Pizzacat about the stance and love the pic overall, I do have some minor nitpicks. Again, these are minor, so I do apologize in advance if they seem too critical. I know some artists like to do this, but I've never been a big fan of the "blurred" background. Yes, things do tend to seem blurry the further back they go, but why blur the stuff in the middle and closer to the front? It seems more of a distraction than anything else. I just wish there was more detail and less blurring in this pic. I do love it overall though.

I love the colors and tones you put into this! That deep blue and green you used for the sea makes me think of the waters in the Caribbean. The scenery reminds me a bit of Maho Beach down in St. Maarten (a strip of sand with craggy rocks flanking both sides) only with palm trees and other tropical plant life instead of an airport and building complexes. I also love your portrayal of Gilda here; just lying down and relaxing, watching the water move in and out between the rocks. All in all, a very serene piece. :thumbsup:

Something I really like about this is how she isn't portrayed as mean or even sympathetic, she's just relaxing at the beach, and that's all that's needed. It's a refreshing change of pace.

Wow, this actually impresses me a whole lot!
I didn't care much for Gilda or Griffons but she looks really awesome in this style! Something about the smaller frame in general suits the image well, but I think it's the the proportioning with the face that makes her look really amazing. 
Another thing I love is the ocean and rocks area. The colors blend really well to make a nice shallow water appearance. And the sky and island behind look really nice as well. This was a really great one you made!

I'm happy that you like this scene - the way Gilda looks here as well as the landscape.
Getting a little more variation into the beach backgrounds is quite enjoyable. :D

I love to see Gilda fanart, but it looks weird to me. It looks like she's smaller than usual. Oh well, still nice lookin' art.

Yes, the eyes and the beak are a little bigger here - also, the pose makes her proportions look different.

I think it's because her neck is less fluffy...? And her head *is* pretty large compared to her body in this.

One question: Is there going to be Sea Swirl on one of these? because it would make that guy on EqD (the "needs more Sea Swirl" guy) really happy. 

And this one almost made me like Gilda. Almost.

To me, it figures that a griffon would choose to lie on the rocks instead of the sand.
