The good ol' gryphon post and pictures are still on this site, in fact. 'Twould never fly now, tho', since it was computer made, and 'twas the reason the computer ban was even created. Don't get me wrong, it looked really good at first. Mixed in nice-n-tidy with the other hand-drawn piccies, but then she started redoing the artwork, and a-sucking it went.... bah.
Someone that looked promising said they were going to make the Hippogryph... dunno what happened to them. No one good has been said to be making a new straight Gryphon, however. I have a feeling I am the one who is going to have to poo that thing out. * uses the technique BeastState *
