Daring Do And The Griffon's Goblet by Herdmind Daring Do And The Griffon's Goblet by Herdmind
If I had enough time I could sit down and write the book Daring Do and the Griffon's Goblet. I have an idea of every character I would use, locations they would go to, fight scenes and plot twists. Everything.

This is just one of those scenes.

Further into Daring Do's adventure she stops in an isolated desert town to gather information on the whereabouts of the griffons goblet. She unexpectedly meets a griffon who is trying to persuade her to stop looking for the goblet. He says the ponies who are also looking for it are dangerous and will kill her if she gets in their way. The conversation goes something like "Do you know who I am?" and "I can take care of myself." The griffon starts to get on her nerves when he says she couldn't even get past him, and eventually they start fighting. In the end, Daring gets her flank kicked but she says she'll keep looking for the griffons goblet no matter what. And because the griffon doesn't want to see her get killed he joins her on her quest to find the goblet.

This looks great! If you have an idea for how the story would go, though, you should really write it. The world could always use another book!

Later on the griffon notices he doesn't know how to deal with Ahuizotl who has found the goblet and then Daring Do takes it from Ahuizotl.

I don't know quite how the submission process works for them (or if there truly is one) but this would make a great banner for fimfiction.net, imo.

The only thing I love more than quality artistic vignettes like this are stories or sequences in the same vein. Kudos, op.

Do you really think they would accept something like this? I mean if I saw this as a banner on fimfiction I might think "Oh cool! that would be an interesting story, where can I find it?" only to discover it's just a drawing and not much else. Although I've never been to fimfiction so I don't know how many banners for the website are actually stories floating around and I could be all wrong. But that would be interesting, I'll definitely look into it, thanks :)

A few people have already admitted that they thought this deviation was created by Equestria Prevails. :shrug:

Thats what I though at first but then as a looked at the young griffons I noticed that they did not have round heads, but in fact had square shapped heads, this was a design I had not seen EP use before on the young Griffons. So kinda right off the bat I knew he dint to this. ^~^ besides, the levels and contrast are a bit off to. ^~^ Either way its amazing, I hope to see more of your great work! XD

No problem ^~^ I have a question though, how much do you charge for commissions? I need a new profile pic for my facebook page and Equestria Prevails dosen't really take them as often and your pretty close to his art style and have a fair knowledge of drawing Griffons. :/ So yeah, I cant really spend any money right now do to some....financial difficulties with the college but later on I might have enough to pay ^~^
