EDIT: I made the head bigger... it looks a little weird to me but so many people kept saying to do it so I just did it. Right now it looks like the body is too small, but that may be just me looking at it with more domestic house cat anatomy.
Hope it looks a bit better though?


Okay... can we talk about how effing cute Saw whet owls are? Seriously -- farm9.staticflickr.com/8471/80… 2.bp.blogspot.com/_Jqc3hK6pKng… i.imgur.com/GccwSmF.jpg wctbirds.files.wordpress.com/2…


Alright... well, I decided I needed a little griffin character... and so I present you with Peach; the Saw whet owl-bobtail cat hybrid.
I was going to give her taloned front feet but it didn't quite work very well so I got rid of them and just gave her clawed front feet instead.
I'll be colouring her as soon as I have time but I wanted to get an idea down for her body and such. She looks kind of fat but she's supposed to be fluffy :U
Haha fluffy and feathery ;___;
Combining owl and cat anatomy is harrrrrd D| Ah well, twas fun and she'll get colours eventually X3

PS: Yes, I did copy paste the wings from a previous sketch I had laying around... I'll make them look better later ._. For now they look obviously awful... ah-hem!
Also, I will be messing with proportions as well. a few people mentioned the head being small and the body being too big. I messed around a bit already to see how it would look if I resized either and I'm not getting a good look with that (it keeps looking off compared to references I have as well). Perhaps I'll try later before I do anything else with it... we shall see.
Thanks for the tips though! :D

His topline (back) looks a teeny bit high for where the neck connects to the body, but maybe she just likes to eat a lot. :) She is adorable, and also incredibly creative. I doubt many ppl could pull this off so . . . I don't know, naturally? convincingly? This looks like it could definitely be some character in an animated feature film. Maybe make more characters in her "story"?

The head looks great >u< I didn't see anything wrong with it at all, if you made it smaller I think that I would've thought that it's too small as well. Both of the species you used to make this hybrid have relatively large heads and the owl has a lot of fluff besides.

head doesn't match the body size. i'd understand if you were trying to be realistic but it doesnt go with the rest of the cartoony blobby style of the drawing
also the wings are positioned weird??

Hey, love the design, and, if you'd wanna hear my two cents, I think you combined the two species really good. Maybe the Body could be a bit thinner and the backline is quite - rounded upwards? I think the body is rather a bit heavy built (not really too big) to fit the owl head (But of course it's a bobcat, so the built is probably on purpose...). And the wing is a bit small, proportions might look better if its a bit bigger? I always write too much - sorry for the long comment ;-). Have a nice day (night), whatever it is over there!

Aww, so cute. <3  I love her adorableness and fluffy coat. ^^  One thing I would suggest for the final lines is moving the ears forward just a smidge. Don't mean to be critical.  I'm just giving my opinion. You are the artist. :)  All around great character though.

Such a great concept :]
The character is adorable as well so far - can't wait to see her design ^^

My environmental studies course got to go out and band these guys last fall :]
That little girl was such a fiesty character and the second one we banded, a male, was a lot calmer.

They're a great little species :]

My favourite attribute of these little owls has to be the little itty bitty floofy feathers around the beak :]

Very nice :D I love owls, I'm not a big fan of Gryphons normally but in this combination... awezome. That's why I had to draw one also. :XD:
Oh BTW that owl species is calles "Sägekauz" in German, that just came to my mind now. ^__^
