Done much more stylized than I'd originally intended, but oh well, it works I suppose.
Secondary type: Feline Draconic
Habitat: deciduous forests and abandoned farm buildings near water
Diet: Rodents, small animals, some flowers and fruits
Hunting/Gathering type(s): Hunts from the air using keen eyesight at night to spot prey, swooping in to grasp with hind paws, kill with either beak or front paws. Fruit/flower gathering is also done at night, picking choice blossoms and fruits from the canopy. May use spears or baskets.
Social: Primary live alone or in small family units of two to five until young are old enough to become independent.
Intelligence: Human-level intelligence, occasionally higher
Function: Often able to tap into magic in order to spin spells used for healing and the pursuit of further wisdom, however there are dark orders where this gift is used for less benign purposes. May become tutors to other creatures of magic.
Often confused with highly intelligent Gryphons by humans, as they mask their uses of magic and technology in order to remain left alone.
This particular specimen is a Buff-tone, his entire body covered in light beige and cream feathers. If local authourities on the species' language are to be believes, his name is Routuru.
Done in Gimp with a Wacom Graphire tablet, roughly four hours, half of it doing the lines.
Also, this is my 100th deviation!
