Description of Griffin,
The Griffin (Greek gryphos, Persian شیردال shirdal "lion-eagle") (also very often spelled gryphon and, less commonly, gryphen, griffon, griffen, or gryphin) is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. Asthe lion was considered the "King of the Beasts" and the eagle the "King of the Air", the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin is generally represented with four legs, wings and a beak, with eagle-like talons in place of a lion's forelegs and feathered, equine-like ears jutting from its skull. Some traditions say that only female griffins
have wings. Some writers describe the tail as a serpent. See the entry Saint George and the Dragon for a 19th century painting of St George and the dragon, showing a dragon that looks alot like a classically-conceived griffin. Classical and heraldic griffins are male and female. A "male" griffin, called a keythong in a single 15th century English heraldic manuscript, is an anomaly that belongs strictly to a late phase of English heraldry. Less commonly known to many, the griffin is a parent to the hippogriph - a combination of a horse and a griffin - even though griffens and hippogriphs are the worst of enemies.
The reason why I chose to make this skin...
After a long hard day in school I came home and decided to relax and watch some TV, I started flicking through channels for a while until Family Guy came on. Half way through the show I was thinking about the new contest on PMC the Myhological Creature contest. Long story short, I saw Peter Griffin and thought I could make a Gryphon. Then ta da here it is.
