Gryphon -- Pipe Cleaners by kalicothekat Gryphon -- Pipe Cleaners by kalicothekat
Sorry for the flood of submissions, guys |D;. And I hope ya'll aren't getting sick of my pipe cleaner sculptures 8D;;.

Here's a generic bald eagle-lion gryphon/griffin/griffon/however you like to spell it. :) I love gryphons and hadn't sculpted one (noncommission, I mean) in about 4-5 years XD. It's funny comparing the two...Here, have a look for yourself!!

:star: together: [link] and by itself: [link]
lol xD...yes...I used to use googly eyes on these sculptures 8D;; Now you know why I've never posted my old pipe cleaners sculptures -hides it back under a rug with the rest 8D;-. But it is fun to see improvement heheh...I could make one of those Quest for Improvement things with my pipe cleaner sculptures, if I can handle taking photos of such awful art XD...would anyone be interested?

He's probably for sale if anyone's interested. 30 or so$ + shipping and handling. Please note me or email me ( if you are interested :).

Picture/sculpture is © to me. Please do not use this image without my permission, thank you.

What is it about gryphons that makes them such good fodder for pipe cleaners?

How do you manage to make the eyes? They're very pretty.

I love the face. The front legs look too big, but I think that's a problem with griffins in general and not with your sculpture.

Yeah, you're probably right :3. Thank you though!

Seriously, I love it!!! Love the realistic colors too. Not that I don't love the colorful ones, because I do! This actually inspired me to make one for myself. I'll upload it later. :)

haha, thanks! I like the colorful gryphons, but the basic ones are still nice, too :). And let me know when you upload it! I'd love to see it.

How do you maaaake those eyes?

I want to make something with pipe cleaners now too. Cx

But I'll need some first. Which brand do you use, and where do you get so many colors of them? O:
