What’s up everyone, I’m back and with my return I have a lesson on "how to draw a griffin head", step by step. I’m not going to say much because what more can I say about the gryphon. Someone actually asked me if I could make a cool drawing of just the head of a griffin, and because I love these creatures from myth, I went ahead and sketched one out. I think you will enjoy this tutorial because there is no way that you will find it boring or even a waste of time. I tried to break down the drawing into easy to follow steps so that folks from all skill levels can try and tackle this tutorial. No matter how you look at it, making your very own sketch of a griffin's head is probably going to be one of the coolest drawings you will do today, unless of course you’re not into methodical creatures. Okay everyone that is all I have for this description now it’s your turn to try and "draw a gryphon head"" too. I’ll be back shortly so stay tuned in because you’re not going to want to miss what I have in store.
