Herne

Subject: Herne the hunter \r\nMateria Artistica: Pigma microns and a hint of brush pen. \r\nSpecies: god \r\nNotes: Herne the hunter. Always inspired by my good friend Kyrielus. i seem to do semi epic works of Stag headed gods when he is around. epic in that can i possibly put another detail in this thing. (which i know i could) this one was started when i was in of all places a gay club in Pittsburgh called The Eagle. a rather nice place actually. \r\nI put quite a lot of the things i associate with him in the image such as the snake which was a very complex symbol and his horn to call the hunt and oak leaves for the oak king and ivy for the evergreen male principal through the winter months. the sun and moon for the travel of the year

Random Gargoyle.

Subject: random gargoyle \r\nMateria Artistica: Pigma micron \r\nSpecies: gargoyle \r\nNotes: if truth be told. there is a guy who goes to an event i go to annually. he is the biggest gargoyle fan in the universe. i do not think highly narcissistic gargoyles could be more obsessed. So i try to do something for him every year. though often in the past that has failed. i was desperate to get something new for him. so i dug out an old technique and worked it. and i must say i am happy with it.

Embrace

Subject: Akira feeds his hunger. \r\nMateria Artistica: Pigma Microns. \r\nSpecies: nekomata, sunbear \r\nNotes: a seldom seen image of Akira totally giving into his deep urges. Nekomata are complex creatures of a strange demonic/spiritual nature. often not malign. but they like everything have to feed. Like many japanese mythicals they often feed off life essences of one kind or another. Nekomata often feed from life force from sexual encounters. sometimes though the hunger if left unchecked leads to a bit more hardcore life force gathering. Many days he can subsist on the scent of flowers of the spirit placed in art. often he needs sex. sometimes only blood can sate his hunger. Though he never kills. That would be wasteful :)

Javiroo Kung Fu!

Subject: Kung Fu Kangaroo \r\nMateria artistica: Pigma micron brush pens, water colours\r\nSpecies: Kangaroo \r\nNotes: done at AC. Javi wanted a piece of art from me !YAY! and well since Kung Fu Panda had just been out and i had done a huge lobby thing for it at the local theater (painting on windows, doing a display of chinese culture and artifacts, designing games for the kids to play. I was still kinda hopped up on it. So this was done. Also i had not really used water colours in a while so it was refreshing to get them out and go nuts.

Anointing the Lingham

Subject: Akira anoints a Lingham (a symbol of Shiva) \r\nMateria Artistica: Pigma microns \r\nSpecies: Nekomata \r\nnotes: an image that got stuck in my head while at a church weekend (yeah i know you are wondering what kind of church i attend!) It is my character Akira pouring Ghee on the Lingham in Yoni which is a symbol of divine creation. The Lingham is the symbol of Shiva's manhood and the Yoni in which it sits is the female reproductive elements of Parvati/Kali (It represents both the womb and the vagina from which life flows.) \r\nIn his hand he holds the Phurba which is a sacred dagger used for demon "slaying" (more of a pin them like a butterfly under glass move really) it is not used in this ritual but it is a object very dear to me.

Subject: Kitsune doing Ikebana \r\nMateria Artisitca: Freehand brush pen. \r\nSpecies: Mythical, Vulpine\r\nNotes: This was done utterly freehanded. no sketch or pencil marks there. i thought it looked nice when i did it. i am getting better at simply drawing with the brush pens and brushes.

FooDog.GIF
Image: FooDog.GIF   589x755 123040 bytes 2005.10.24

Subject: Food Dog on Mountain gaurding a sword\r\nMateria Artistica: pens \r\nSpecies Canine Mythical \r\nNotes: I love mythical creatures and some simply never get enough coverage. FooDogs are actually based on what we know now as pekinese dogs. yes those tiny yappy snarfy things. Once before constant inbreeding brought them to thier current state they were large dogs that gaurded temples and palaces and the like. then they began to shrink and grow more useless for thier positions. But so feared were they that staues of them were made to continue in thier place

Subject: Chinese pheonix \r\nMateria Artistica: Micron Pens \r\nSpecies: Avian/mythical pheonix\r\nNotes: the Pheonix is the symbol of female power and creative power in some chinese mythology. it shared a lot of common traits with the russian firebird in both behaviour and looks and may indeed have been based on an older extinct bird whose memory was exagerated. possibly something related to the peacock considering it had "eyes" on the feathers as well.
