First in a set of four elements. It's like a requirement that every artist make some sort of seasons/elements/zodiac series at some point in their career. At least, that's how it feels to me. I see them everywhere. This one is colored pencil on bristol. Yey, symbolism.

Inspired by the Discovery Channel, I present antelope-girl.

birch.gif
Image: birch.gif   618x662 91203 bytes 2002.10.14

I like birch trees. And since I royally blow at drawing trees, I'm pretty happy with this.\r\nNib and ink on bristol board.

Simple, boring, blue and black

Brush pens are entertaining, but the ones I have are slightly too large for the scale I work in. Nonetheless, I'm pleased with how this looks when colored. Seems rather art-deco. Ink on sketch paper, colored in Photoshop.

ezdemon.jpg
Image: ezdemon.jpg   648x756 52443 bytes 2002.09.13

Esizkur is a demon. A 5,000 year-old Sumerian demon. He ususally hangs around in a human avatar nowadays, since he doesn't exactly get summoned a whole lot, and manifesting a 30-foot demon form in the physical is a real pain. Scribbled in Painter.

This started out pretty good (the head) and became progressively crappier (the wings, tailfeathers). So I'm not as pleased with it as I might have been. Made in Painter Classic.

frogfae.jpg

Frogs are cool. The world hasn't -completely- gone to hell until there are no frogs left. Pencil on journal paper.

Glofaeries are attracted to objects that produce light, but not heat, such as flourescent black lights, glow-in-the-dark objects, and of course, glowsticks. Their dust is a mild hallucinogenic. Aww yeah.

glowfaegreen.jpg
Image: glowfaegreen.jpg   650x700 81968 bytes 2003.05.29

The most common glofaery colors are blue, green, and red, but white and numerous other colors are sometimes seen. I had drawn a red one, also, but it turned out lame. They say that everytime a fresh glowstick is snapped, a glofae is born. :P

For Hart's Ease. She was looking for a few artists to draw her bellydancing, for a t-shirt. The idea of a bellydancing wolf amused me enough that I couldn't resist. Markers and colored pencil on marker paper. \r\nHart's Ease is herself.

hat.jpg
Image: hat.jpg   321x704 44458 bytes 2003.05.29

I made this during the winter when I was wearing a knit hat almost every day. I love that hat.

Hnarr.jpg
Image: Hnarr.jpg   188x521 34348 bytes 2002.06.12

Hnarrs are a race of aliens I created, but they seem pretty furry to me. They're omnivorous, and live in nomadic tribes on the plains of their world. Their fur color ranges from the gold-brown shown here, to a soft yellow-green. Colored pencil on tinted paper.

homedog.jpg

Word up, G-dawg.

khile2.gif
Image: khile2.gif   592x513 60330 bytes 2003.05.29

This picture contains a human. However, Khile's not really human in the traditional sense; he's just a dragon who likes to take human form. Unfortunately, his human form retains the pointy ears he has as a dragon, resulting in an occasionally difficult time socializing. C'mon, it's not like people would just ignore something that obvious. Here he is, in both forms.

khunshaman.jpg
Image: khunshaman.jpg   675x776 67431 bytes 2002.07.09

Quickly colored sketch of Khunmaru, one of my dragon characters. Desert dragon, shaman, and fierce protector of her tribe. ph33r the shitty Utah-esque rocks.

kitsune.jpg
Image: kitsune.jpg   596x758 48852 bytes 2002.06.18

In Japanese myth, kitsune are white. I wonder if anyone's ever done a study on the rate of albinism in isolated fox populations.

lionfish.jpg
Image: lionfish.jpg   481x800 74607 bytes 2002.06.11

I like lionfish. This one morphed into some sort of dragon-fish. Took a long time to finish, also.

merinahunt.jpg
Image: merinahunt.jpg   697x741 67111 bytes 2002.06.18

Yeah. Colored pencil on crummy typing paper.

missing.jpg
Image: missing.jpg   572x521 58772 bytes 2003.08.16

Some very old angst. I messed up inking the wing...but it's okay because the ink is my friend.

C'est moi.

Musical preferences are so utterly personal and sacred, that it's futile to attempt to explain to another person why you lose yourself in certain songs or peices. Consequentially, I -could- tell you what I was listening to as I drew this, but as there is no way to share the sensation received as well, the meaning behind it would be lost.

Image: Noitgun1.jpg   448x694 35876 bytes 2002.07.09

Wow, this is old. o_O It's Kitryn, in an old request. I still like this quite a bit, though. Kitryn is his player.

owltree.jpg
Image: owltree.jpg   575x800 87720 bytes 2002.06.11

Moving this from sketches because I cleaned it up a little, so it's not really just a sketch anymore. The tree is a little over-stylized, but I still like it. Featuring Solace, my barn owl sylph-creature-girl thingy.

plainssmall.jpg
Image: plainssmall.jpg   800x578 247536 bytes 2002.06.12

Yes, yes, I know. I just felt I had to upload it because, being the first image I ever colored with Prismacolor pencils, I still really like the figure in the foreground. I hate (HATEHATE) the hills behind her, but I like the clouds and distant mountains, so I couldn't bear to just cut the figure out and keep that. Just...don't look at the hills. And no, I don't know what kind of feline she is. All my felines end up being nondescript, for some reason.

point.gif
Image: point.gif   583x515 53359 bytes 2002.08.21

He's pointing! At what, I don't know. I really like mules, they just seem to have more personality than horses. I think it's the nose. How can you resist a nose like that? At any rate, I had just gotten some new nibs and ink, and tested them out on this sketchbook doodle.

prayers.jpg
Image: prayers.jpg   612x932 60039 bytes 2003.08.16

She prays at the sacred waterfall, with a smouldering branch of fragrant wood.

priestess.jpg
Image: priestess.jpg   628x846 63613 bytes 2002.06.11

I find the monastic lifestyle interesting, but not neccesarily in the Christian sense. Must have to do with devotion and vows and such. Just a drawing I did to work on my marker skills, a cat of undetermined species burning incense in an abalone shell and chanting on her prayer beads. Must be an ocean cult thing.

raestorm.jpg
Image: raestorm.jpg   900x750 126786 bytes 2002.07.09

Pic for Raeadh`ani, because she's nice and she asked (a really long time ago, even). For all the wait, it turned out allright. Try as I might for semi-realisticness, I cannot make the water look like water. My mighty flood of reference photos has failed me! Or maybe I just need more practice.
