Here are some intial color passes for both Riffin and the evolution Riffindor. These are electric creatures, all. I wanted to have a slightly OFF sort of feel to the griffon so it didn't just feel like, ya know, a griffon instead of a Terramon. So, the blue one was my top choice. You'll see with the roughs that I tried something OFF from a griffon too. Still, I think we decided on something a little more standard looking for the stage 1. The stage 2, Riffindor (I love this name, haha), is definitely slightly strange for a griffon, and therefore I like it a lot.
