Skandranon in Flight

Skandranon, the Black Gryphon, at the apogee of an immelmann and just beginning the backover roll. The wings snap forward and swivel up, then go in tight to complete the position before the backfall.

You can definitely see the tailflap fan and the sheath-vent contour of the Velgarthian gryphon in this piece.

From a pencil sketch, finished digitally in Painter way back when. I think it was Painter 1.2 then.
