If you think that dragons are the biggest baddest mythical creatures around, you are mistaken.

Half lion, half eagle, a griphon will tear a dragon to shreds. Circling above earth at great height, with infallible eye sight, a gryphon will pluck a dragon mid-air. The last thing a dragon will hear is the souring scream of a gryphon diving down which makes the dragons' bones resonate in terror. The split second the dragon realizes what is going to come, the gryphon sinks its claws deep in the dragons back at great speed. As the dragon tumbles to the ground with the gryphon on its back,the gryphon will reach over the dragons' shoulder and slit the dragons neck with its razor sharp beak. As the dust of settles after the dragon and gryphon have hit the ground, the dragon is gasping while blood flows richly out of its mortal wounds. A truelly horrifying image for a dragon.

It's not for nothing griphons are depicted as the defender of treasures. Combining elements from the king of the sky and the king of all animals, the gryphon is on top of the food chain.




I started this project a very long time ago, i wanted to build it as a 1k sub thing, but i never finished it (and building organics is frustrating imho) but recently i was remindend that i never finished it so i felt compelled to pick it up again. And here you have it. Let's hope, one day, gryphons will replace dragons as the most popular organic builds :)

Wonderful build! Even tho by fantasy theories griffon are smaller than most dragons thus they will have hard time to penetrate the scales... I say a pack of griffons are swift enough to down a dragon.

I love your builds just love them
Pretty good!
I like the griffin and the dragon. I don't know what to think of the blood tho, It looks more like a red spiderweb on the ground it does not seem to fit with the fact that the griffin tore the flesh of the dragon and the blood 'flows richly from out of its mortal wounds' , I would expect like (a) pool(s) of blood. (just my thoughts ;) great organic)
Awesome, I like it. It's adorable.

I've had moments of frustration while building this, i'll give you three tips:
1. Don't give up
2. Build the head first
3. Make a line/ball outline to make sure you get the proportionality right.
4. Don't forget rule #1 ;)

I'd consider giving you better ratings in exchange for two paperclips and a piece of unused chewinggum, but a compliment, c'mon, you know i'm not that cheap.

I guess calling something art is in the eye of the beholder. i do think it's quite nice though, not going to lie, quite happy with it :P
It's a piece of art, in Minecraft :)
What are "organic builds"?
  • lentebriesje

  • Level 82

Organic builds are builds which are natural, flora/fauna. They tend to be rather complicated since minecraft is blocky and you'd need flowing lines. Then there's structural building, which is about the opposite of organic building. Structural building is building man made objects. Most man made objects have a lot of straight lines, which are easier to make in minecraft.
Oh, ok! That makes sense!
Oh sure, some modern house gets 200 diamonds but this gets 61? Crazy. Well, now it's 62 diamonds. :)

I drop in on chat every now and then, but it's already on the top of the what's hot list, don't see the point in promoting it more. People interested in builds will see it.

I'm the wrong person to ask when it comes to large structures, assuming with large you mean megabuilds, FyreUK project sized builds, because builds like that i don't do :)

Because it's organics. I consider structural and organics to be two distinctly different things, and as far as detailing goes, it's related to structural builds imho. Organics is organics, you build the creature, there's no tricks, there are no rules to it other then proportionality.
