I just put my pencil to the paper and let my hand go. This is the result. Maybe its some deep inner emotion of mine that needed to be let out ...riiight. I think itís cute. I like it. Itís in a frame on my bedroom wall. Ink and Prismacolor markers and coloured pencils.

Commission-ish type thing for my brother to give to the people at the job he is quitting today. I don't really know what it means, he just told me what to draw. Hamsters power America? lol Prismacolor markers and coloured pencils on ..11x14 Bristol board!! *ooo's and aaa's*

What do you think of this one, Justin? Do you want to spill garlic butter on here too? :D Prismacolor markers on sketchbook paper.

(I hope i still have some non-furry allowances... I have only uploaded one other non-furry pic)\r\n\r\nI had to try and imitate old Japanese art for school. I actually like this a lot. The 'water spots' are where my Prisma clear blender accidentally spilled its juice all over the paper. Yellow tint and grain etc. added in Painter Classic.

They have big noses...

I thought i saw a cool looking statue on TV, but it turned out to be something different. I drew what i thought i saw and then elaborated on it. This was very fun!

I have a little rescued albino mouse! Tobi was going to be piranha food, but the people changed their minds when she was bobbing around in the water. They didn't want a mouse so they gave her to me!! Now i have to convince my parents she needs a companion mouse hehehe She's a very nice little mouse, i was surprised. Still like rats better though :P

My Christmas card to Fil. This is getting sent along with the sculpture of his cat (Animations folder). Oh, and speaking of cats...see the red and green kitty in the bottom right-hand corner? I think my cat would look good dyed red and green *evil laugh* Green hooded rats look pretty god too...

Bloody scanner...can't take red worth a darn :P\r\n\r\n(Hey wow, what do you know, something thatís not cute and fluffy from me! I'm perfectly happy; this is not a depression/angsty pic...i just needed to draw something a bit different)

Mock Con badge for myself. We got fun VISITOR nametags while on a field trip in Physics class today. I was bored in Study Hall after lunch and drew this on it. I showed it to my friends later and told them it was "me." They just politely smiled at me and nodded with a look like "I didn't know you took drugs..." on their faces :P They still donít understand.... I've tried to explain furries many times and have written essays for classes and everything. Oh well. BTW, i suck at drawing letters lol

Image: borzwlk.jpg   445x579 33590 bytes 2001.11.28

I have no clue how to finish this, or if i even want to, i like it as it is pretty well. The head doesn't fit the body though. But it is a borzoi and its meant to look like that. I drew this, gave it to my mom and told her that now she can walk her borzoi...itís her favorite breed of dog :P\r\n(and please no sketches, i cleaned this up as much as i could)

Finally! My commission for Rymeer is done. He has been so understanding and patient. First my mom was in the hospital for two weeks, then teachers give final projects all at the same time... I really hope he and Kittra (the vixen) like this. My scanner hates me though, or at least red and the beanbag. The red has more shading and depth and the blue-ish streaks in the beanbag aren't so noticeable. Oh well, the real thing looks good :D Rymeer and Kittra © their creators. Pic © 2001 Laura Westrate

Dedicated to my newfound love of the scratchboard tool, and of course: milkweed seeds! \r\n

I coloured them.... yup i did. Oooh sparkles hehehe I showed this to my brother and he said, "They have big ears." That they do..Good job, Colt :P

I got bored i guess...? Water dog running lots of dihydrogen monoxide :P errr yah...

I got my wisdom teeth pulled out this afternoon. Everyone was telling me how groggy i would be afterwards for a few hours, so i thought it would be funny to see how i drew while like that. I drew a before pic at lunch time for comparison and then the same pic again after surgery. I was barely tired or anything though. Pretty much normal when i left 15 minutes after the whole thing was over. I guess i should try and draw it again just after i take the painkillers they gave me. Wooo boy, do those knock ya out! :ř

I get to draw the title page for our yearbook this year! (I did it last year too, but that one sucked) The teacher told me they wanted a HUMAN looking into a river and the reflection was to be a rat (school mascot) staring back. It's been years since i drew a human, but amazingly, i had no one pose for the pic..and i think it's okay! Hopefully they give me credit this year. I made sure i put my signature in a place where it wouldn't easily get cut it out like last year... *fur prickles* They didn't even write something like "Cover page by Laura Westrate" *growls*

My poor Rio rat with her lump...gotta get that thing removed. Drawn with one of my few Faber-Castell coloured pencils. I have a few things up on Furbid to help Rio:

Just put one of the last of my baby rats down. Well, Wilburt was over two years old, but he was still my baby. Had him since he was born. He and his siblings were born three days before my birthday. Best gift i have ever gotten :) Little ratties are so fun and cute! Sort of a self-portrait of me too, with my earrings, necklace and ring. I have a shirt thatís yellow like that, only it has the Captain Crunch cereal logo on the front with NEWSBOYS written under it (and BREAKFAST NOT SERVED HERE written over flames on the back :D ) I am left once again with only 5 rats, and i doubt my mom will be so nice as to let me get another one :( Oh Wilburt...

Last weekend was stressful. My cousin tried to kill himself...again, my great uncle died, and i had (still have) a lot of homework to do. I drew the original line art for this after i got back from the Feast of the Hunter's Moon in Indiana, thinking about my cousin the whole time. It turned out too sun-shiny for a suicide related pic, but my cousin is still alive and fairly well, so i guess itís allowed to turn out light and silly now... Laugh at the "leaves," they look like crud :P

Eh, finally made and drew a character for my brother. A giant river otter fits him perfectly. He's tall and thin, his hair always looks wet because of all the gel, loves fish (to eat or keep in tanks), looks good in glasses, has whiskers, and makes silly noises. The otter's name is Wick because it reminds me of a tall, thin, fiery thing, much like Colt most times :P Hope he doesnít visit my archive very often... O.o

I found a silver rubberstamp inkpad. I couldn't resist! Then i drew on the fingerprints with a metallic purple gel pen. They are two of several on a letter to one of my friends in South Africa.

Oh oh, and there's me on our family vacation to some far away mountain range. Don't I look just the happiest?\r\n\r\nI dunno... Just a Terragen background and a Painter Classic blue merle collie/coyote mix. And a big thanks to Katie Scully (on VCL) for the tips on using Terragen :) I can do flat land now too!

Doodled in study hall...I was thinking about why i was rejected from Yerf and trying to make my inking look more "finished" but i don't think i did anything different.

*Guess it wasn't fuzzed enough..oh well. Not too hard to fix up...* I had chipped all the paint off my necklace in study hall and designed a new pic to go on it. The face is on the front and the name and rat logo are on the back. The star is a charm that was already there. My dad wanted to know why i put the dog on there and why the word RUNT was on it... You think he would get it by now :P \r\n

*I have been told that this would look better if the green circle were left out, so...* A while ago, when i uploaded lgrdmn.jpg, i got an email from Chris Goodwin saying i should do another one like it. Well... it took me long enough, and i donít like it so much, but here's another one with just two brush pens. On the real pic i tried to colour a green circle around it, but my pen ran out and it looked really bad so i edited it out. Shoulda made the main objects overlap again though...\r\n

Image: tisscut.jpg   423x630 41504 bytes 2001.09.27

About a week ago i got a new rat. To me she looks a lot like Tissle, my magical rat character. Now i have Tissle the real rat. I have decided to change my character to be more like the real rat. One of the most noticeable things about Tissle is that the last inch and a half of her tail is missing. Itís all healed over now; just looks funny. I was trying to make up a story to how it happened. Some dolt probably picked her up by the end of her tail when she was a baby and it broke off. That wouldn't do for a magical rat though. I'm still not sure how it will happen. My mom thinks Iím going nuts because Iím drawing pics of "mutilated" rats... The other rat is her sister. There were two tan rats at the pet store, so Iím guessing it was her sister... Any background ideas or tips would be wonderful since i am planning on doing a larger coloured pencil drawing of this soon! (

This started in Study Hall. I was fussing with the key chains on my backpack and noticed the finish was wearing off one of them. The pattern looked kinda like this to me. I took the last half hour of class and drew this. Finished it up at home with an eraser and blending nub. I rarely draw gryphons, iím sure you can tell now...i will leave them to the more experienced people and stick with my rats :)

This should have a background sometime soon... I think its a weasellemur *taunts her brother* doing gymnastics. She was caught in a pose that i don't think is actually possible. I bet she fell over just after this was ďtakenĒ :P It was going to be an ermine, but it got to be too dark, so it has turned out to be the first example of an inside joke of sorts... ~*note: It has been pointed out to me that this is an awful lot like the gymnastic weasel in Animalympics. This was not intentional! I had totally forgotten about that movie while drawing this picture. It was going to be a skunk, but i guess i like ermines too much...I apologize*~
