Griffins don't necessarily NEED to have bird feet up front. There are various versions of griffins, she never stated what version it was. Male griffins aren't even supposed to have wings, so, some can be wingless. I know you were just mentioning it, but some people don't like when others point that out.

If you look closely, i did not say what these creatures are. ;P Plus it pays off to know how many ancient renditions of the griffin exist. [link] Including wingless griffins and griffins with the forelimbs of a lion.

It says Griffin Wallpaper e-e
Plus I like the ORIGINAL form more (eagle talons, wings, head, lion body and some kind of pointy ears e-e)

Maybe it's the creature's name. Like Bones, Skittles, Pinkie, Spike... Griffin. Stupid argument i know.
But. If by original we are referring to oldest depiction, that would be this: [link] "The earliest depiction of griffins are the 15th century BC frescoes in the Throne Room of the Bronze Age Palace of Knossos" Or if we are thinking about the Egyptian griffins ( "there is evidence of representations of Griffins in Ancient Egyptian art as far back as 3,300 BC" ), here: [link]
The general consensus is that a griffin is a creature that has the head of an eagle and a body of a lion, and from that point on, depictions vary. Even the Romans had many of them without eagle talons. [link] [link] Wikipedia says "In heraldry, a griffin always has forelegs like an eagle's" which is accurate as far as i can tell, so the version with the talons probably became popular through heraldry (which came waaay after ancient Greece/Egypt).

Yeah, there are various versions. The most well-known acknowledged ones are the ones with the head and front legs of an eagle, and the rear of a lion. I like how you did a different version, you don't see it often ^-^

Aww, what a cute griffin! I've always been under the impression that griffins are scary "going-to-eat-you" kind of monsters, but this totally threw that in the toilet. XD

Really cool scene. I think it could even be better if it had stronger lighting but this works good enough. Reminds me of the sort of thing I would read in novels, y'know:)
