I love how this character looks very avian but also like a real person. Considering our human brains are hard-wired to read stuff on other human faces, this is a pretty impressive feat on a non-humanoid face. I've always liked your avian/gryphon character portraits. Also: purple. Those eyes are just gorgeous.

I find your technique with Acrylic very interesting. Nice palette choice as well, the selection of secondary colors works beautifully here.

I like the subtle pink, purple, and blues you shaded with. They add a lot of three-dimensionality to her form (and are just plain pretty).

Besides i just love this artwork, forgive me to ask but: who's Sylba exactly?
One thing is for sure: I want do try a griffon Miniature in the next time. And this artwork is a great guidleline for the head. The ears are a interesting idea for a Griffin. Newer saw those on another Bird till now. And they looking good.

Sylba is simply a gryphon I created :)  She doesn't have much backstory aside from being a seer.  And ears are actually quite common for gryphons!  Generally they either have feathery eartufts (like an owl) or feline ears.
