Griffin's Lullaby by Lysok Griffin's Lullaby by Lysok
The girl is singing a very old griffin lullaby called "My Little Hero" to Spike (Yeah, My Little Hero: [something] is Magic. I realised that after I gave it that name, but I don't want to change it since it fits the image so well.) The lullaby would be in tone of Zenith by David Larsen ([link]) which ispired whole story.

She sings this one to him, because he almost died in the mountains trying to save his friend, thus he is a little hero to her.

Some sketches and description of the story: [link]

Edit: Why are Brony musicians so amazingly talented? If do you want to hear something incredible, listen to this: [link]

And I recommend you to check ~WoodyJack's whole channel. You won't regret it. At least I didn't.

Hey,
I would like to give you a permission to use it, but this painting will be part of a fanfiction :(

By the way, I checked your channel and your music is amazing! Just beautiful. Keep it up!

Man, I honestly can't tell you how gutted I am :3 I feel the song just matches the picture perfectly... hell, it's what made me write it in the first place :3 Will a teaser perhaps change your mind? ...I'd be more than happy to link the fanfic as well if all else fails to persuade you ... :3 But, at the end of the day, it's your picture my friend & I'll respect which ever answer you decide on..... also, here's the teaser WIP if you wish to listen [link]

I was thinking about my response to you because it seemed harsh to me, but it was exactly what went through my mind when I read your comment. Well, I just wanted to say sorry if it was harsh and thank you.

I'm always amazed when someone says that my work inspired him to make something awesome and sometimes I just really don't know how to show it appropriately. At least not with words. I just tend to produce comment which does sounds very different than I intended or it does not give a sense at all.

Well, I hope you won't mind. Sorry again and thanks!

You feel gutted?! Go! Use it!

Fanfic is not done yet so there is no link to it. If you would like to, you can mention something about it, but that's up to you. And the writer who writes it, *TheDescendantofKehAn says that your song is "hauntingly beautiful". I cannot but agree.

No worries man, it wasn't harsh at all :3 & you're very welcome! ^^ Also, thank you so much for allowing me to use this.... & I'll be sure to give to fanfic a mention & whatnot. Just keep me posted on when it's finished so I can throw a link up in the description as well :3

I take it that this is the same character who recovers him in the snowy panel of "Spike's Quest"?

I'm greatly intrigued by your ideas and your sense of world-building. If you truly wish to make a comic out of these series of images, I'd be willing to think about a collaboration. I'm an okay writer, if you'd like my help.

I'm glad you've begun doing Pony work, as I'd not have found your amazing style if you had not.

It's not actually the character who is displayed in that panel, but it was her who found him.

I don't think I would be able to make a comic of it since it won't take long and school begins and then I probably won't have much time. I could even get tired of it so I don't want to start it as a bigger project. I will probably just use this theme for few more paintings :)

Thank you for your offer, through. I really appreciate it and I'm glad that you like my work!

You're very welcome!

I don't know if you're familiar with the MLP:FIM literature site called FIMFiction, but they have a header banner that they use when you come to the site. It's literally the first thing you see, the one where the featured box is floating.

If I can figure out how to do it, could I use this image as my banner? Would I have your permission to submit it to the site as a possible banner? I'll certainly give you credit for it.

That gryphon looks amazing! I'm sure it'd paint the gryphon species in a much more positive light if Hasbro actually brought her in as a character!

The architecture and scenery remind me very strongly of Skyrim.

Also, if this ISN'T from a fanfic, I may have to change that. ^_^

Thank you!

Design of the griffin was inspired by artist called furseiseki. I really liked it since it gives more space for angles.
