This is the kind of sketch I wish I would do more often. Most of my sketches end up being tiny scribbles that are barely recognizable. I don't have too much time for sketching anymore-- I spend much of time drawing the actual comic book pages that at the end of the day I just want to lie in bed and watch SportsCenter.
But Gryph has always come a but easy to me-- not sure why, maybe it's because he's such a cartoony looking character and he's entirely made up. Although he is based on the Snivvian species from the Original movie, I take a LOT of liberties with him and pretty much make him into a Saturday morning cartoon pig/bear animal.
