CCO Canyon by Merystic CCO Canyon by Merystic
The griffin race partially takes place in some canyons. I had this sketch of Zane and Gany stagnating in my sketchbook for a long time, so I decided yesterday to bust out my colored pencils and try my hand. Really it's just me pretending like I'm as good at colored pencils as ~soulshelter. ;P Pencil envy! Haha, anyway, I'm pretty happy with it.

Even if it took FOREVER!! :D


Zane, Gany, and CCO Shara (merystic)

kay so, I'm a totally nut bag who never took the time to read any of the descriptions on your artwork for whatever reason and I like... JUST NOW figured out that your character and I have the same name. 8D (I'm a dork) and this picture totally give me a random and devious idea... *evil plot smile and hand rubbing action*

Hahah! Yeah I used to get confused when Sam would say Zane because I wasn't always sure which one she was talking about. :XD: An idea huh?? I can't wait to see whatever plot you're cooking up! XDDD *curious*

LOL! there was also a Character named Zane on TS for a while... That really confused me because in OOC posts I didn't know if people were talking to the character or me T3T...

Thanks, I love them too. ^o^ I did this in an evening, it was probably only four or five hours. I'm trying to get better at colored pencils.

I'm glad to see you do your hand at colored pencils. It seems a lot of people have kind of left the traditional mediums behind and gone all digital. Of course I would go digital too, but I just can't seem to understand it (as vein in forehead bulges and fist trembles with frustration). Anyway, nice job.
