There are many creatures and beings that have been made up or added to lore from many different religions, beliefs, and creeds. A lot of the creatures that we read about in books are usually from the minds of medieval times. Griffins, sirens, and other fantasy figures are all really interesting and these characters even inspire writers and developers so much, that they are sometimes used in stories and animation. This tutorial is going to be on a fantasy character from lore, and the main reason why I am uploading it is because it has been a high requested creature for about a week now. Today I will finally fill the one request that has been waited for. What am I submitting? I will be showing you "how to draw a hippogryph", step by step. There are a few ways to spell hippogryph; hippogriff, hippogryph, and hippogryph. If you are a fan of the Harry Potter series, you should know that there is a hippogriff named ‘Buckbeak’ or ‘Witherwings’. What exactly is a hippogryph anyways? Well, you know how a gryphon is half bird and half lion? Well, this creature is half griffon and half horse. The front legs are of a bird, and the back body is that of a mare. There is a full mane and tail, as well as ears that sort of look like a horse too. If I was to pick what type of mythical creature I think is cuter or cooler, I would have to say, the hippogryph. Instead of drawing a complex version of this half bird half horse, I wanted to keep it easy. I made sure that the tutorial would be simple for everyone to try. Even novice artist can have fun with learning "how to draw a hippogryph". Well that’s about it for this description. I still have two more tutorials coming your way. Adios and have a happy drawing day!
