An early favorite. A leopard reaches out a helping hand after fighting off an alien menace. My good friend, Shawn Heath, has naggedme relentlessly about this picture. "There should be a car in the background, not a dead alien. A _CAR_." Unfortunately, everyone agrees with him. Ingrates... I'll show them all... *grumble*...

This was an interesting commission. The client was fascinated by an earlier picture of mine (Savior.GIF), and wanted a picture from the same uiverse, but with a wolf instead of the leopard, and a dead motorcycle in the background, rather than a dead alien *grumble*. One of these days, I'm going to have to flesh out the story behind these Angels of Mercy.

Image: Sexy-Sally.jpg   309x480 41862 bytes 2002.07.07

I started with the pose, and wondered what species to make her. I decided there weren't enough sexy amphibians around here. Plus, drawing from behind means I don't have to cheat and draw salamander boobies. \r\n\r\nWatercolor image, up at Anthrocon.

For Shanti_Wolf on IRC, a friend of mine from back in Edmonton. It's a polaroid photgraph of Shanti the dragon-wolf on her custom chopped Harley. Fun little way to make a poorly centered original look right. ;D

Image: Skystar2.GIF   379x665 90347 bytes 1996.05.24

Skystar of FurryMUCK, cooling her toes in a reflecting pond. Colored in Superpaint.

"A Small Army", small rodents on large insects ready themselves for battle. Watercolor, the original is 24" by 18" framed.

This is an old picture, but I'm finally alowed to upload it. This is my younger brother's (now long-defunct) red panda character, Tabasco. He was also to serve as the animated mascot for a cooking show plot he was working on, but has since let that lapse.

Image: sphere.gif   536x620 41007 bytes 2001.02.11

An interesting individual I met while on Taps. A shapeshifter. The natural form is the bubble, this cat is appaently one of it's more popular forms. She/he/it liked it. =)

Image: spiderbattle.JPG   800x581 154141 bytes 2001.07.24

Not quite my usual subject matter. This was on commission for Vega Altair. Some warriors try and fend off the demon spider that has been feeding off the girls of the village. It dosen't seem to be their day; who will emerge victorious?!

Image: Spidergoat.gif   418x600 50726 bytes 2002.07.22

Baaa... *thwiip* SWING!\r\n\r\nIt's Spider-Goat, and his amazing... udders?!\r\n\r\nInspired by a recent story in the Washington Post. A genetics company has spiced the gene for spider silk protiens into dairy goats. These new transgenic goats produce milk that can be refined into spider silk, with a tensile strength of 60,000 Lbs. It's 5x stronger than steel, and can be woven into Bullet proof vests hat are lighter and stronger than Kevlar.\r\n\r\nAs cool and harmless as all this is, I still get images of this in my mind. Well, that and goats that chitter, climb walls and devour each other.

Image: SWAT-Texas-web.jpg   444x600 80342 bytes 2002.07.07

It's Anthrocon Time!\r\n\r\nI've wanted to do some Armadillos for a while now. I figured a SWAT theme would suit the nature of their Texan location. Those are actual weapon models\r\n\r\nThe original will be for sale at the Anthrocon Art show.

Image: SwiftfoxFin.jpg   800x486 118991 bytes 2003.04.08

Part of a series of model sheets for Talin: the swift fox from the earlier "Old Barn" picture.

Image: swimmingwsharks.JPG   500x374 42149 bytes 2001.07.24

Ok, this was fun. One pretty, and non-typical femme otter, 3 unusual animals, Multiple implied puns, and two movie references. Not bad for an underwater adaptation of those old poker paintings. ;D For sale at AnthroCon.

Image: talinbarnweb.JPG   684x408 78057 bytes 2001.07.24

Commission for Talin of FM: Five lovely ladies restoring a mirror found in an old barn. This may be on sale as prints, depending on interest. Hope you enjoy!

It's another art trade! This one is for Opal Weasel, who drew Platinum in return. You can see his great sketch back at under the Guest Art section! Thanks Hellenic!

Image: tempest.gif   384x758 35173 bytes 2000.04.08

An odd dream: myself and all my friends were normal humans in an LA college (?) but there was a single rabbit-morph who was one of my best friends. Wierd. So let's just say I was inspired. Tempest Rabbison 2000 Kitsune.\n

Image: Tiger-Daimyo.jpg   339x480 57333 bytes 2002.07.07

A Tiger Samurai lord, in the style of the old Japanese prints. Going into the AC Art show. \r\n\r\nI really do love the classic japanese prints. The flow, detail and vitality are always fun to look at, as are the unusual contortions of the body. I just find it the most expressive and lively of the pre-Rennaisance art-forms.

This started as a doodle, but already he's starting to carve out a story niche in my brain... No name, but he's still Me. =)\n

Image: transketch.gif   600x412 57341 bytes 2001.03.31

Before I started drawing Furry critters, I drew dragons. I guess this is me getting back to my roots. Trantalin Darksbane, a draconic warrior, and one of my oldest recurring characters. (c) me, therefore.

Image: trioweb.jpg   800x533 99480 bytes 2002.01.25

Cheyene, Delahaye and Avanti of FurryMUCK. The Nissan in this image was given to me as photoreference. When I finished the gift, I discovered the player of these three had recently come into ownership of this exact car (in white), customized to the f***ing _GILLS_. Unfortunately, it was in storage for the winter, so I couldn't get a ride in it. Shucks...\r\n\r\nArtistic note: I think this will be the last time I use this heavily Photoshop "Super Cel" color style, so I can focus on improving my color technique. Besides... I got markers for christmas! =D

o/~ My funny Valentine... o/~ It was either this, or be angsty and alone. This was more constructive, i think. =) Dedicated to my friends at the Studio Les Artists on FurryMUCK.

Image: Water_1.GIF   538x619 124416 bytes 1996.05.24

A rather busty female otter supermodel in the twilight sunset. One of my earliest furry pictures, this was colored using "Superpaint", an 8-bit Macintosh painting program.

Image: WhatAmI-1.JPG   447x600 69695 bytes 2000.10.03

Contest is long over, so time to alter the descriptions here. The three creatures are from Dougal Dixon's 1981 book on Evolution: "After Man: A zoology of the future." This is a Falanx, a predator rat evolved to replace the extinct canine. Here, seen as a warrior huntress, taking the head of a common Rabbuck, a rabbit evolved to replace deer. creatures are 1981 Dougal Dixon.

Image: WhatAmI-2.JPG   600x583 93711 bytes 2000.10.03

Another creature from Dougal Dixon's"After Man: A zoology of the future." "After Man" demonstrates the theories of evolution by hypothisizing what creatures would look like in 50 million years, if man went extinct. This creature is an anthro 'Rootsucker', a desert dwelling mammal similar in evolution to the armadillo or tortise. Creatures are 1981 Dougal Dixon.

Image: WhatAmI-3.JPG   413x600 55026 bytes 2000.10.03

Another creature from Dougal Dixon's"After Man: A zoology of the future." "After Man" combines good science with BEAUTIFUL artwork. This is a Truteal, a blind insectivore (The dark spots are nostrils). Creatures are 1981 Dougal Dixon. In case I haven't made it clear, you should go find yourself a copy of this book. ;D

Image: wolfen.gif   549x499 44715 bytes 1999.11.05

This is a somewhat more realistic image than the ones I usually do. It's my version of a Palladium RPG Wolfen; I got tired of the toothpick-legged monsters in the illustrations, and thought I should try my hand at one.\n

Image: Yllectra.JPG   322x600 83297 bytes 2000.07.22

Pokemorph #2: Yllectra, a Raichu (Big Electric Rat) on Team Ruby. While not as powerful as her little sister Lexi, She is the more mature and (Ahem) Grounded of the two. She shares her sister's zeal for life and, ah, sparkleing personality though, and lights up a room with her presence. *Puns ahoy!*\n
