Well, this sure ain't pretty, but it's rather funny.\r\nThe Finnish Sauna... it can be rather hot in there sometimes. Temperatures exceeding 100C (boiling point of water, ya know...) are not unheard of. =D \r\n\r\n(Notice the included "3 monkeys" theme. Yeah, i know, the order is incorrect, but hey, who really cares...) \r\n

Well, suppose it's not that bad at all... meddled with the details quite some time once again.

Well... touching. What else can i say...

mixed_characters.gif
Image: mixed_characters.gif   1800x452 148676 bytes 2003.01.15

Characters. i suppose. i originnaly designed them for a comic-alike, based on a certain IRC channel i spend my time on. (so, those who wanted, got a change to decide how would they look like...)

Now here we have a one seriously pissed off bitch. For an apparent reason...\r\nMade with colored pencils, and due to the limitations of my current selection, only 5 colors + pencil was ever used. (those being blue/violet, cyan, red, green, and yellow/orange)\r\n\r\nThis is not a bad one, afterall... it was first time in months i touched those color-thingies, ya know... =)

You couldn't probably tell, that both of them were made by same guy... I mean, the style is just so different. Anyways, i could still draw either of them again...

havoc.gif
Image: havoc.gif   865x683 187741 bytes 2003.01.14

Well... what am i supposed to say? "cute"? \r\nJust tested my pencil skills again.\r\n\r\n(to mods: oy, quit poking this thing around, it sure ain't *that* sketchy!)

Well, yeah, this might come a bit late, but... happy new years, everyone!\r\n\r\nAah... the refreshing Finnish winters...

small... simple... oh lookie! coloured pencils... must be the first time in years...

cinnamon.gif

Well... not perfect, but hey, it's something...

avatar_morph.jpg
Image: avatar_morph.jpg   920x960 112363 bytes 2003.01.14

Well... basically... it's... me! ...sort of, anyways... Took maybe a 3 hours in a whole, this... not bad.

Now, what happens when a dragon get's bored to the usual roles?\r\n\r\nWell, this one was a rather quickie... i suppose i'll have to colour this one properly some day. this time, the anatomy works particulary well, i believe... an excellent example of my new-found capability to invent dynamic bodies/machienery/etc. from the scrach, if i feel like it. This was a completely spontaneous creation, i didn't think anything really, or use references... i just drawed, in the way it looked best. Surely, the muscles aren't 100% realistic, yet still, they look like they might actually work. well, at least I think so...

pantera.jpg
Image: pantera.jpg   1024x768 151014 bytes 2003.01.14

Well... magical... eerie... you name it. Personally, i like how this one turned out to be. All those details serve the image very well...

suit.gif
Image: suit.gif   425x679 53489 bytes 2003.01.14

well... i was just desingning some comic characters... EASY-TO-DRAW -comic characters to be exact... i was just drawing this guy, when i suddenly realised... "...ahem... now, with all this gear, who's gonna draw the few dozen poses of him required in the comic, anyways...? sheesh..." ...i think his own attitude reflects this the best.

Well, hell, what am i supposed to say... =D\r\nI probably should be whining about feeling a bit "down" and alike... but i won't. It would seem that just don't know how to angst. Instead, i hereby annouence, that this thing was made to be used for fending off some of the certain annoying personalities present in the wonder-world of Internet Relay Chatting... Now, this here is an excellent way to "politely" say to someone 'shut up, or i'll hurt you.'

Yet Another concept sketch of this Deceiver -character of mine.

Image: the_deceiver.gif   507x800 104445 bytes 2003.01.14

Well, i suppose i have somewhat adopted this character as my trademark... all gothy looking striped dragon. yay. praise the originality... now here we have one of the sketches of him. not that terrible, but...

wolfe.gif
Image: wolfe.gif   461x653 109606 bytes 2002.06.29

Well, pencil again. Just tried some expressions and stances here...\r\n\r\n(not bad... but that eye... ouchie... gotta fix it someday...)

temple_guard.gif
Image: temple_guard.gif   767x839 149545 bytes 2002.06.29

Well, just tried something again, made purely with pencil. \r\nDare to pass?\r\n\r\n(hmh... not bad at all, in fact...)

Dragothic.jpg

*phew* Takes a pretty intensive work to create something like this from scratch in one evening... =) \r\nAgain, Pencils/PSP. And no references, apart from inspiration by music. ("Nightwish - Beaty of the Beast" How fitting...)\r\n\r\n"And there he was, his glance following the horizon line, wondering if this world possessed a future for him at all..." \r\n\r\n(well... The coulours and details are rather nice, but there's still some problems in the anatomy visible...)

Wulfen.jpg

Well, i know it's not purely anthro. But, i guess there are enough "right" characteristics to justify it's presence in here... =)\r\nAfterall, this one is more like intented to represent what i can do, if conditions and my mental state are right, and if everything wents as planned...\r\n\r\nSpent quite a lot of time with this, considered that most of it was made only with basic mouse and PSP airbrush. (although a pencil skecth was used for base.)\r\nAgain, no direct reference used, all the details are from my of devious mind... (though some of you may have already noticed that the image is supposed to take place in the world of Warhammer 40k... Yes, those guys are from Space Wolves Chapter. Yes, very closely related to werewolves and all that. Pity the poor Orks.)

Larger version of the VCL forum logo i recently designed.\r\nYes, it DOES say "VCL" if you just look carefully enough... ;)
