This one was was from the beginning of story I was writing. Basically these extraterrestrial beings in the form of\r\ngiant spheroids come to an earth inhabitied by anthros...in order to scientifically observe these people in \r\nsecrecy. This pic came from a scene where one of the aliens takes on the form of a male foxcoon, and is \r\nin a dazed moment of awe, observing his new form. The character came from the urge to create the most attractive\r\nmale anthro I could think of(to my opinion, of course)\r\nI'd really like to finish the story someday, especially since the plot sounds like total and complete schlock\r\n

CountryCoon.jpeg
Image: CountryCoon.jpeg   614x862 205177 bytes 2004.04.04

An unamed coon, simply enjoying himself in the sweet rual shade.\r\nThis one came from the infulence of Bob Wills country tunes and Tommy Makem's Irish songs about life in\r\nthe country

Serena in a bit of a celtic motif. Inspired from a tradtional song called "Lot's of Drops of Brandy"

Kangaroo girl with culturally unidentifiable tattoos...but they certainly look nice.\r\nThanks to Odious for the inspiration

Madarien-Dharaud-C.jpg
Image: Madarien-Dharaud-C.jpg   700x965 263996 bytes 2004.04.02

Done complety with Sharpie. This is an Irish folk song that recites the everyday perils of the "Maidrin Dahruah"...The lyrics are quite delightful if you can decipher them to English

FelixNewAge.jpg
Image: FelixNewAge.jpg   800x1160 393305 bytes 2004.04.02

Also a bit unorthodox. This was meant as a joke over a phony new age diagram I was looking at one day. Revealing where all of our particular auras and plains and demensions happen to float about our bodies can be located. Aren't we an imaginative people? hehe...first Felix nude pic

DocPipes-C.jpg
Image: DocPipes-C.jpg   700x989 163705 bytes 2004.04.02

Myself as my foxcoon character, practicing a set of B.C. Childress Uilleann pipes. \r\nYou can't tell from this angle, but their are \r\n3 regulators hiding just bellow the tenor drone, making it a 3/4ths set!

Alphonsetaunt.jpg
Image: Alphonsetaunt.jpg   476x609 137135 bytes 2004.04.02

a bizarre product of a dull evening. I've named this character Alphonse. He's based heavily \r\non voodoo priests I would read about from Creole legends. The arm thing was kind of a gag moreso\r\n on the fact that I there was not enough room on the paper to give him arms :)

Adrian1-C.jpg
Image: Adrian1-C.jpg   700x987 161020 bytes 2004.04.02

\r\nWow, first upload in nearly a year...amazing.\r\n\r\nThis particular character is Adrian Andollo. In my storyline, she is the eventual daughter of my Serena and Stan characters. Here, she would be in her late teens and participating in kickboxing

Senora_coloured.jpg
Image: Senora_coloured.jpg   447x510 25688 bytes 2003.08.05

Another one of my all time favorites. I call her Señora de el Agua, which had a comic and story with the same title. The story took place in 19th century Latin America. The Señora was a fugitive vixen who robbed from corrupt locals mostly for personal gain; to call her an anti-hero would be more than accurate. The “de el Agua” title came from her fur being a unique blue. Her appearance in my art predates both Serena and Zelda

Felix_and_Clara.jpg
Image: Felix_and_Clara.jpg   428x477 34037 bytes 2003.08.05

Clara and Felix.\r\nHere we have the Felix Michavelli and his wife Clara. This pic was the cover to the first installment of my \r\n“Chinese Hopping Ghost” comic. Without giving too much of the story away, the orb that they’re holding was a gift from Felix to Clara. What they neither of them knew, However, was that the orb really contained ...EVIL!! (too many good natured orbs out there already, methinks)\r\n

Doc's_girls.jpg
Image: Doc's_girls.jpg   552x650 77182 bytes 2003.08.05

A triad of steroid induced floozies? Or lineup of my three Female regulars?\r\nErr.... a little of both, actually\r\n(From left) Serena O’Sullivan, Zelda Constantine, and Clara Micheavelli\r\n

Brambles.jpg
Image: Brambles.jpg   509x700 47273 bytes 2003.08.05

Last of the Falcon_Deity set. In the beginning, the whole set was a short comic about divine intervention for a fox. This was a small character building scene where he gives some sarcasm to the Falcon Deity while still suspended in the air. The cuts and bruises you see are from an earlier scene where he was thrown into a field of brambles.(ouch)

Atilla_pipes.jpg
Image: Atilla_pipes.jpg   509x699 55843 bytes 2003.08.05

Yet another oddity. I made this to put in the door of my Uilleann bagpipe case, hence the joke about the leaky pipes. It’s ironic since I made this around the time my Chaz Roberts chanter was giving me a lot of reed trouble. As for the character in the pic, I call him Atilla. Everyone in the comic just calls him “Till”\r\nSo far, the only male skunk who is re-occurring in my artwork\r\n

AntonioAndollo.jpg
Image: AntonioAndollo.jpg   600x690 51107 bytes 2003.08.05

This sketch is pretty old, but if you can mind the lousy scanning (I tried 6 different scans; this one was the best) I believe it’s one of my better-penciled pieces\r\nThis pic is suppose to be 20 years before the events in my comic took place. Stan’s father, Antonio “Tino” Andollo, somewhere in South Asia. Carrying the 4 year old Stan on his back.\r\n

DJ_Luara_second.jpg
Image: DJ_Luara_second.jpg   352x729 40830 bytes 2003.08.05

An earlier pic of Lauren. Good, but I thought the previous pic made a fairly better rendition of whom she’s modeled after\r\n

DJ_Lauren.jpg
Image: DJ_Lauren.jpg   335x653 38114 bytes 2003.08.05

Lauren is a mouse character who happens to be based on a real-life radio personality in Seattle.\r\nI’d love it if she had her own comic strip eventually.\r\nAnd those things in her ears? Headphones.\r\n

Zelda_Nuetrino_pool.jpg
Image: Zelda_Nuetrino_pool.jpg   388x500 44201 bytes 2003.08.05

Zelda in bathing suit overlooking a pool. What the hell’s wrong with the water, you wonder?\r\nIt’s what I call a nuetrino pool. In the original comic, one of Zelda’s colleagues,\r\nDr. Riley came up with the idea that if people could absorb vital nutrients by having it enter through\r\nThe pores of the skin, it could somehow miraculously prevent disease and slow the aging process...er... Needless to say, Dr. Riley is a full-fledged crackpot. The coloring in this one is a tad different from the pastel spectrum I usually stick with \r\n

Zelda_frontal.jpg
Image: Zelda_frontal.jpg   295x626 37925 bytes 2003.08.05

A frontal sketch of my main female wolf, Zelda Constantine.\r\nAnother character from my comic, she works as a hapless scientist \r\nIn Pretoria with my vixen character, Serena. She was originally her own separate story, which involved her as a neuro-physicist. At one point, I came up with the ridiculous story of her rebuilding stolen cadavers as cyborgs, but now, she’s just my somber science wolf. Only body snatching when it’s absolutely necessary \r\n

Stan-A-2.jpg
Image: Stan-A-2.jpg   260x706 38207 bytes 2003.08.05

A bit more animated pic of the young Doctor Andollo.

STAN-A-1.jpg
Image: STAN-A-1.jpg   293x468 28417 bytes 2003.08.05

Now we have a character I'm more familiar with.A very simple pic of my anthropologist Dr. Stan Andollo, one of the characters of my Orbis Unorthodox comic/epic. Although he's the most frequent character in my stories, I stress to say he's a main character. To say so would belittle the role of the other main characters. I don't think there is any character I draw more often that this guy.

Falcon-Deity.jpg
Image: Falcon-Deity.jpg   502x614 47326 bytes 2003.07.27

Part of a Falcon Deity set. He was SUPPOSED to be suspending the fox in the air by the scruff of his neck, but it came out a bit jumbled. Now it officially sits as Doc's first (uploaded) ink oddity

Hawkman(colored).jpg
Image: Hawkman(colored).jpg   500x600 33362 bytes 2003.07.27

I never really drew birds before this. I had spent some time at the Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma, WA \r\none day; admiring the falcons and the eagles. Sure, the Red Wolves were awesome too, but something about the raptors caught my attention. No name for him either, but since I like this guy so much, I'll have to think of something.

Early-fox-quadroped.jpg
Image: Early-fox-quadroped.jpg   380x530 48480 bytes 2003.07.27

One of the predecessors to the "The 4 Stages of Anticipation" group. Hence it's likeness to the 3rd stage pic. But some differences, mainly the hair, were chaged in final sketches because I wanted a more "feral" approach.(hell, the hair looks like John Davidson's from "That's Incredible")\r\nLike the rest, it was colored in photoshop.

Culmination_2.jpg
Image: Culmination_2.jpg   350x355 25825 bytes 2003.07.26

Part 4 of the "4 stages of anticipation".\r\nYeah, it's cut off, I know. Believe me, If I could cart around 8x11 notebooks just to get the whole thing, buddy, I'd do just that....but hey....I still got the fox! (Huzzah!)

Competance_2.jpg
Image: Competance_2.jpg   439x573 34043 bytes 2003.07.26

I love the smug look on this guy. Part three of my "4 Stages of Anticipation". And no, I do not profess expertice in the drawing of grass. Where there experts, I'd be worried

Disillusionment_Confidence_2.jpg
Image: Disillusionment_Confidence_2.jpg   424x584 37493 bytes 2003.07.26

This was the first of my three sample images on the VCL. \r\nEven if it was my sample image, I still thought it fared pretty well. These are the first 2 of the "4 Stages of Anticipation". Additionally, this is a no name fox. You could say, he's simply a part of my ever growing Vulpani pantheon. \r\n
