If the Neopets team ever makes the Eyrie paintable with the Maraquan Paint Brush, this is what I think it ought to look like. After all, the gryphon-creature should look like a lionfish. It's only fitting.
This was done on the Neoartists oekaki. I used exclusively solids, and it took me well over 4 hours. You see the nice little gradients inside the stripes? Pixel by pixel. I worked hard, and I'm pleased with the result.
Eyries are copyright Neopets.com blah blah yadda yadda. This design is mine, though.
