Dagens .SE?

Tussi Coltshoof hard at work, handing out free newspapers to passers-by with a friendly smile. This is my first digitally colored piece in a while; handling the tablet went surprisingly easy. Only thing I'm not happy with, really, is the color of Tussi's hair, but that may partially be due to my monitor being shoddy about color display. \r\n\r\nThis piece is inspired by the dress code my job had when I started. It's changed a little since, but back then it was pretty darn stupid.\r\n\r\nTussi Coltshoof is my intellectual property.\r\nImage is ©2006 Alexandra Malmberg

Dagens .SE?

Tussi Coltshoof, a canid/horse hybrid with a perky, sunny disposition, doing what perky sunny people do best: handing out magazines to passers-by. I'm not very happy about the shoes (Converse are freaking HARD to draw!), and I think I screwed up the foreshortening a bit, but I'm still rather happy with it. This piece will be digitally colored by me when I get the spare time. \r\n\r\nYes, I am making fun of my work dresscode. You would, too.\r\n\r\nDrawn on cardstock, inked with Microns. \r\n©2006 Alexandra Malmberg

Scraps for Troja

A quick picture of Troja Fetcher that I drew up for an invitation to a Christmas party. \r\n\r\nDrawn on my usual cardstock, inked with a brushpen, colored with Copic Sketch markers.

Gift-Giving Season

My art for the current WTFolio project: a piece done in crayon. I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out. Prints of this piece will also serve as Christmas gifts, because I am poor. \r\n\r\nMechanical pencil and crayon on a drawing pad. \r\n\r\nTroja is my cheerful multitailed golden retriever, please don't nab her. ©2006 Alexandra Malmberg

Strawberry Lemonade in the Summer Sun

My third and final piece for the Furry Recipe Portfolio -- Strawberry Lemonade! The finished piece will be available on the portfolio CD and have my personal strawberry lemonade recipe (modified from one I found online long ago) in the glass.\r\n\r\nThe image was inked with Microns of varying widths, and the fruit and the mouse girl were colored with Copic marker. Then I pulled the image into Photoshop and did the lemonade in the glass digitally. I like the look of the strawberries and the lemons at the bottom of the piece.

My gingerbread piece for the Furry Recipe Portfolio. Obviously it's going to have a recipe on it when it's done, but that'll be available on the CD only.\r\n\r\nThe busty dobermann is Keita, one of my comic characters.\r\n\r\nThe image was inked with Microns and colored with Copic markers on cardstock.

Frozen

My piece for the furry art portfolio "Symphonies in Fur Minor" that Tyreenya is putting together. I was illustrating the song "Frozen" by Madonna, specifically the line "love is a bird, she needs to fly", because I think it's beautiful.\r\n\r\nCopic marker on cardstock, inked with Microns, and with a bit of input from a white gel pen for the shimmers on the ice butterfly. I'm satisfied with the result, and even more so because I so rarely do backgrounds. The mountains were referenced off "lapporten" in northern Sweden, a natural cliff formation that looks really impressive.\r\n\r\nWatermarked because it was explicitly asked that all pieces posted are watermarked.

First of my pieces for TigerMelanie's furry recipe portfolio. Sah'togar Theaña's wife Zavayi is serving a large dish full of Swedish meatballs. Real Swedish meatballs, like they're made in Sweden. Of course, her oven mitts and apron go in blue and yellow -- just like the Swedish flag!\r\n\r\nThe final version will have the recipe next to Zavayi, and will be available on the Recipe Portfolio CD. \r\n\r\nZavayi is my intellectual property. \r\nImage ©2006 Alexandra Malmberg

Come Smell the Roses

I call this "Come Smell the Roses"...\r\n\r\nGift for my boyfriend for Valentine's day. Let's forget that V-Day's long past, I was silly in the head and forgot. \r\n\r\nI'm mostly satisfied with it, except my scanner put a bunch of dirt on it (needs cleaning) that I had to retouch away by hand, and the left (our right) breast got inked rather lopsided, and is way smaller as a result. \r\n\r\nMicrons and Copic sketch marker on cardstock.\r\n\r\n©2006 Alexandra Malmberg, all rights reserved, yadayada.

Hug for Frisket

Gift art for Frisket, because I thought she could use a hug. Nothing that special... -_-; I'll do something more involved next time.\r\n\r\nMicrons on my usual heavy paper, colored with Copic sketch markers. And I know I can't write straight, my teachers keep telling me to letter my comics with a ruler.\r\n\r\nImage is ©2006 Alexandra Malmberg\r\nFrisket is the intellectual property of Melissa O'Brien

A somewhat larger panda in a fancy old dress, from MFF '05. I just haven't gotten around to scanning and uploading her until now. I should've. I think I may've gotten her coloration wrong, but I'm satisfied with the borders on her dress, at least.\r\n\r\nShe didn't seem to be leaning so much on paper.

The Persocom I designed for Swedish Manga Mania's CLAMP contest a few issues ago. I always liked that kind of "robot ears".\r\n\r\nDrawn on heavyweight printer cardstock, inked with Microns and colored with Copic Sketch markers. \r\n\r\n©2006 Alexandra Malmberg

A piece I intend to laminate a print of for a "pencilboard" for my sketchbook, it has my two avatars, Katla-in-Shadow and just plain ole Alex vixen, cosplaying as Eclair and Lumiere, the main characters from the anime Kiddy Grade. (And Alex-Lumiere is holding Kagetsu, the psychotic chinchilla that lives in my basement.)\r\nKatla's left wing is proof I watched Angel Sanctuary one too many times. \r\nCopic markers on cardstock.

Finished version of the piece, finally... Prismacolor pencils and Caran d'Ache watercolor pencils (for the walls), with some little help from Photoshop to smooth out some shadows put on there by the scanner and the cardstock's inability to hold watercolor well.

"You make my heart bounce!"\r\nAn illustration for a Valentine's Card, the b/w version. It's just a random kangaroo male sitting there, with a big floofy heart-shaped pillow on his lap. How cute. \r\nWill be offered as a card on snowfox.se eventually

Soeman Fir, a very shy boy with a natural gift for scrying, lost his focus one day. He found an acceptable new one in an antiques shop, not knowing a ghost had placed it there for him to find... And that the item in question had a very old curse tied to it. And so, he was promptly turned into an ermine. \r\n\r\nThere are plans for a background (and color) for this, I just wanted to get him in there first, and inked, so I wouldn't ruin something when trying to get the background in place.

One of the bunch of gift pieces of artwork I made for a friend... Prismacolor markers, nothing fancy, one of my earlier attempts at shading with them. Also finally has my proper markings.

Political cartoon done for my Government class, on the subject of the Articles of Confederation and the drawbacks thereof. \r\n"Mr. New Jersey, I'd like to ask you to please pay your annual contribution to the federal government..."\r\n"Umm... Nah. Don't feel like it."\r\n\r\nColored with Prismacolor Markers, because they're awesome.

Tattoo design, the finalized version of the concept I came up with so long ago. Looking to get the inkwork done maybe this summer... \r\nStaedtler Pigment Liners on cardstock, pretty blah far as techniques go, but I like the lines and the way the rosettes turned out, very stylized.

Another storybook page, the turning point of the story. The main character, Windflower, an albino wolf, has given up on ever finding her place in the world, and dismisses Raven's talk as the senseless words of someone who knows what he's talking about. I have a better version of this on a zip disk, where the misstakes in the knotwork are corrected. \r\nSame media as page10.jpg

One of the illustrations for a children's storybook I made for class. Unicorn lives in the middle of the forest, and the main character is sent to him when she cannot find friends anywhere else. But also Unicorn has to send her away... I love the detail on his robes and look! A real background!\r\nInked with Staedtler Pigment Liners, will later on be colored with Prismacolor markers and -pencils, most likely.

A bunnygirl with a huge sword, and more than a touch of Arabian Nights. Technical pen and Prismacolor pencil. And those streaks in her hair are bright pink on the actual drawing.

A little bunny girl looking at the stars... Watercolor, technical pen and Prismacolor pencils.

Second of three images mounted together that were showed in the MFF '03 Art Show. Sure, she looks like Miss Piggy, but at least I managed to get a pig to look cute. Technical pen and Prismacolor pencils.

Inspired by roleplay, Falconeio, a bit more mature Leon, and Leon's female form, Leona. Didn't happen, just inspired it. Because they are soinlove. 2B pencil on printer paper, in Art class.\r\n\r\nLeon and Leona are the intellectual property of Alexandra Herakai\r\nFalconeio is the intellectual property of his player\r\nImage &copy; Copyright 2003 Alexandra Herakai

My scanner hates me, today. Figuring out Leona's proportions, those huge feet are a pain in the tail. Will be inked and colored at a later point.

I am grateful and soinlove, as much or more in love than I were a year ago.

My drawing of Lizardbeth for furartxchange, some endless toying with Painter Classic... Lookit the pretty graffiti!
