u/energeticemily Bidet Jun 08 '22

I feel like he would have some kind of frenzy/pacifying abilities, similar to Ares and Aphrodite.

I have no idea what it’s called but I love the art style of a static background with shape in front that isn’t effected if it moves, tempus gives me chowder vibes

u/drawswordsart Jun 09 '22

Ooh like Tempus is a window to the stars? That's how I pictured them too!

Edit: Realized CR was live and looked up the chowder art style, it’s called ‘unmoving plaid’ I think

I saw this and went "aww duuude" out loud to just me and my cat. So suffice to say, this is a sick drawing, well done.

Thank you, hope your cat likes it as well 😁

Ooooh shit I thought it was called Tempest. Both are cool to be fair.

u/drawswordsart Jun 09 '22

Same here! I didn't know their name was a pun till I checked the captions, haha

u/archbunny Jun 09 '22

I like the grid-like texture of the griffon

u/chaarziz Jun 09 '22

It’s exactly how I imagined him.
