sketches of griffin chicks by Reptangle sketches of griffin chicks by Reptangle
These are some of the sketches that I referred to, to sculpt the crouching griffin chick.[link]
I did these to figure out what griffin my chicks would look like . I based their faces on chicken, and peacock chicks,( I used both kinds as live models) not an eagle chick.
Most of my "working " drawings are very sloppy, and not fit to show anyone, but this one looks ok after I cleaned it up a bit in photoshop.

Very endearing... you managed to capture the essence of fluffy baby raptors and fluffy little kittens all in one design. I like seeing your concept sketches; it's neat to see the entire creation process, from rough ideas to finished product.

I've never done casting myself, so I'm always interested in learning more about the process. Is the standing pose too difficult because of the fragility of the legs? I'm guessing that it helps to have every limb together in one mass instead of having four limbs each hanging out on their own.

Yes, fragility is a problem if the legs and toes are too thin. It would be possible to cast a piece in this pose,if we used a less fragile material to cast, but every place there is a space between the legs, there would be a parting line in the mold. I try to avoid parting lines because they usually require touching up on the casting to make them less obvious.
