Start off with the head. Bring an image of an eagle to your mind and draw it on a piece of paper using a pencil. If you make a mistake, use the eraser to make the corrections. Even if the head resembles the head of another bird rather than an eagle in particular, it is still fine. However, do not forget to add a beak to it.
Once you are done sketching the head, start concentrating on the front part of the griffin. Continue to keep the image of an eagle in your mind as you draw the front legs. The front part of the body will resemble that of an eagle’s as well. Do not forget to add claw-like talons to the front legs.
Next, proceed to draw the remaining half of the body. This part will resemble that of a lion. Bring an image of the king of the animals into your mind and start sketching it. Complete the body first and then draw the hind legs. Add a tail to the rear end of the griffin.
Now that you have sketched the head, front legs, body, hind legs and tail of a griffin, focus on making the wings. Draw one wing in such a way that it is spread out and completely visible. The other wing should be drawn in such a way that it is only partly visible.
Once you have made the basic sketch, start adding details and features such as eyes to it.
Use colour pencils to add colour to your sketch, and give it a finishing touch.
