This is my first image of my final fursona, Haoma. I had given up on Iscerazu and Lindley and a litany of other characters, and decided to go back to the basics and draw my favorite animal, the bunny. The name itself is my favorite part - it is the ancient Iranian word for the more commonly-known Soma, an unidentified plant used for hallucinogenic purposes in old Zoroastrian rites. It was perfect for me: it was a plant so it fit with the whole Watership Down motif, it was an Iranian word, and it connotated a dreamy, thoughtful personality. Indeed he lasted. 7-12-99.

As far as my early stuff goes, I like this one quite a lot. I like that he has some expression in his face. I had been looking at Wookiee's art a lot at the time and I definitely see his style in the mouse's face. 7-5-99.

Ugh. This is me TRYING to have a figure in motion. I think part of it was that I was already really not liking Lindley as a character and couldn't see myself in him. Still, I was trying new stuff, so up it goes. 5-1-99.

This was a friend's character on Dragon Realms (I cannot remember her name). Similar to the fox pic, but perhaps a more interesting pose - and no stippling. 3-13-99.

My proportions were getting better, although I still don't know how to do backgrounds. I tried some new techniques I had learned in art class - hatching and stippling. Dear lord, it's a tedious style. Still, this is me trying new things out. 3-13-99.

I did this the same day as the last on - I was on a Rea high. This has us holding hands and being cuddly - a major event for a geeky high schooler. I was still drawing Rea in her jungle outfit, which didn't change until a year or two later. I love the caption, like it's saying, "You think THIS is raunchy... wait'll you see us KISSING tomorrow!" 2-13-99.

On February 13th, Rea got me the most over-the-top, unabashedly enthusiastic V-day gift I had ever seen - a whole bag filled with cards, candy, notes, and other presents, accompanied by an enormous balloon. I was so mortified I could barely move, but a 12-hour blush is a memorable event. 2-13-99.

This was intended to be an erotic pic to fuel my fantasies about seeing Rea naked (remember, I was 16 and had never dated before). Rea, who likes being drawn naked, was quite supportive of this endeavor and helped me figure out how to draw her character as seen from behind. I then took that figure and incorporated it into the drawing. 2-10-99.

By February, I had had enough of Iscerazu and decided to be a mammal. I don't know why, but I decided to be an Australian dingo going by my middle name of Lindley. I'm not Australian, I've never really considered myself as a canine, and Lindley isn't that great of a first name. The only reason why I made the connection was because of a cool Aussie hat I had recently come in possession of. Lindley did not last long. 2-5-99.

I sketched Rea sitting on a coffee table, made her not have clothes, and turned her into a wolf. Definitely learned some valuable lessons on proportion and perspective on this one. 1-27-99.

This was done about half a year after my original Daisha - Daisha v. 2, so to speak. It's definitely an improvement from the original. 1-15-99.

This was also early; I did this with Rea while I was casting about for a fursona. At the time, I was really into reptiles and dragons with complicated names - it would only be a year later that I settled on Haoma. Rea did the line work and I added watercolors. 1-31-99.

Hello! I'm going to start uploading from oldest to newest, so that my images are chronologically correct. For this reason, you'll have to forgive the crappiness of the first couple I put up. In addition, I'll only post images that I think are either good or interesting - most of these early pieces are up for the latter reason.\r\n\r\nThat said, this is my *very first* piece of furry art, shortly after I was exposed to the genre in late high school. This is a picture of my character Daisha, a serpent-folk rogue I played on a now-defunct MUD called Dragon Realms. 8-29-98.
