Iron Artist commission for alicefelidae!\r\n\r\nA "reaching for the sky/stars" theme was requested, and made me remember a nice memory so I was more than happy to oblige. Basically, I had never seen the milky way before moving out to California. I grew up where there was light pollution, so I was lucky to see a handful of stars. Well, shortly after I moved out here I went with a group of friends up a mountain to watch a meteor shower, and that was the first time I had ever seen the milky way. I will never forget it.

Another completed Iron Artist challenge piece! This one is for Varien over on FurAffinity! His Caracal persona, deep in study!\r\n\r\nPhew! I am so happy this one is finished. I put my all into it, and I'm pretty satisfied with the results!\r\n\r\nThank GOODNESS for the lorem ipsum generator because otherwise I would have totally lost my mind dealing with all the text.

Number three in my Iron Artist challenge! Caracal barbarian lady... friggin' AWESOME. Love when my commissioners present characters and themes that are not the usual run-of-the-mill subjects!

Number two in my Iron Artist challenge! :)\r\n\r\nI ended up spending WAY more time than I probably should have on this piece, but I was having too much fun to stop. Tell me to have fun with fire and I will have fun with fire! \r\n\r\n... and hey! The Iron Artist challenge is all about CHALLENGING yourself, right? ;)

Image: ia001_zelinda_web.jpg   523x850 97051 bytes 2011.11.21

First image for my Iron Artist challenge! This piece is for Zelinda on FurAffinity. It's been cold and wintery here, so I just had to do a cold and wintery piece. :)\r\n\r\nI LIKE DRAWING FURRIES WITH TEA OR COFFEE OMG

Image: lennymutt_icon_web.jpg   504x504 88924 bytes 2011.11.21

Icon commission for lennymutt on FurAffinity, who requested their persona holding some sushi rolls in chopsticks, about to nom.

Image: pandoradragon2.jpg   736x900 93426 bytes 2011.11.04

Finished commission for pandoradragon over on FA!\r\n\r\nThe color scheme gave me a lot of trouble. I had started out with a lot of blues and greens but the orange of the character gave me a lot of difficulty... so I threw a gradient over the whole thing and tried again. Came out okay I think, if slightly boring on the color theory scale.\r\n\r\nThough I must admit I had a lot of fun working on this piece! :D

Image: neko-daewen_icon_web.jpg   504x504 96559 bytes 2011.10.07

Icon commission for neko-daewen of their awesome android cat character. I had a LOT of fun with this, and probably worked on it for longer than I should have... but still! Fun!

Image: airguitarmarker_final_web.jpg   581x850 133402 bytes 2011.10.06

Real media piece for AirGuiTaR of their maned wolf persona. I had a lot of fun mixing human anatomy with the long limbs of a maned wolf. :)\r\n\r\nThe scan does this piece no justice. The circle is actually copper paint, so it shimmers and looks really awesome against the character.

Image: stripefull_web.jpg   1076x805 157088 bytes 2011.09.27

Second commission for Stripecat! I spent quite a bit of time on this, but I'm pretty darn happy with the result. :3\r\n\r\n\r\nI grew up where there were lightning bugs every year, and it's one of the things I miss the most about summer on the east coast. After seeing a few awesome photographs of fireflies on flickr, the nostalgia bug (no pun intended) bit me and I knew I wanted to illustrate fireflies real soon. And since Stripecat requested glowy themes for his pieces, it worked out perfectly.\r\n\r\nFireflies are awesome, it does not matter how old you are. When you're a child, you have no idea how they "work" and it's amazing... but even as an adult when you know the chemistry, it's still one of the most magical sights.

Image: stripebadge_web.jpg   622x800 163095 bytes 2011.09.24

Badge commission for StripeCat. A glowy theme was requested, so I went with a neon sign as the light source. I had a lot of fun with this piece!

Image: wwicon_final_web.jpg   506x506 69290 bytes 2011.09.22

Icon commission for WolfWings of his glow-y character. I LOVE gratuitous glow-y things. Yesssssss....

I wasn't able to make it this year, but next year...!

Image: fennec_2.jpg   900x527 120698 bytes 2011.09.22

My (thus far) nameless fennec fox character, spinnin' some fire poi. \r\n\r\nFire poi is something I've always wanted to get good at but generally fail miserably. I'm too much of a jump-around flail/dance kind of person, so I work well with stiffer mediums (fans and staves). Less burns and bruises to the face. >_>\r\n\r\n(Wearing a long-sleeved robe and spinning fire doesn't seem like the wisest ideas to me, but YOU try to tell the fennec that!)

Second badge commission for Nefiline. I really like this one! Might be one of my favorite badges completed to date. \r\n\r\n... sometimes all the stars align and I make something I'm really happy with. ;)

Image: nifeline2_web.jpg   640x800 149879 bytes 2011.09.22

Badge commission for Nifeline of their awesome persona.

Image: rikoshiicon_web.jpg   500x500 78766 bytes 2011.09.22

Icon commission for Rikoshi of his skunk persona, looking evil. He requested a trickster/trouble-making evil rather than malicious evil, I really hope I got that conveyed correctly.\r\n\r\nHad a LOT of fun working on this. Being on a new machine with better hardware and acquiring a new program to work in (Paint Tool SAI) has made digital painting far more pleasurable.

Image: bluesiamesemarker_final.jpg   546x900 96792 bytes 2011.09.22

Real media doodle of my blue Siamese character. Really enjoying working in markers again!

Image: wolfwingsmarker_final.jpg   703x900 170723 bytes 2011.09.22

Real media marker commission for WolfWings of his main persona.

Another doodle of the blue siamese... which I am enjoying drawing more than I probably should. :|\r\n\r\nI'm drawing her so often that now I feel she needs a name.

Image: bluesiamese_web2.jpg   581x900 75700 bytes 2011.07.14

Originally started out as a flame-point, with markings closely referenced off my siamese... but then I got a hold of the hue slider and then this happened. :|

Image: sherowkey_wolfyucomm_web.jpg   1379x525 181133 bytes 2011.07.14

Commission for Wolfyu of their character, Sherowkey. I drew a lot of inspiration from heraldic images, but tried to add my own flair to it.\r\n\r\nHonestly, I have a love-hate relationship with this piece. One the one hand, I really like it, on the other hand... I see a million tiny little things I could change. But in an effort to not overwork this image to the ground, I called it complete at this point.

Just a doodle from last month...! :3

Image: scratchboardwolf_web_border.jpg   620x764 186081 bytes 2010.01.07

I recently got a hold of some Ampersand Scratchboard, which is way higher quality than the thin paper stuff at craft stores. I decided to give it a try, and this was the result of my first attempt! I LOVE the medium!! So fun I already started the next one!\r\n\r\nThis is very simple and rather boring, but I wanted to figure out the medium before being too brave. The next one I've removed all the stops, it'll be a challenge!

Another page from my Moleskine sketchbook. Fu lion! :D

Image: deathsample.jpg   900x525 81726 bytes 2009.10.20

I'm doing the 100 $10 sketches challenge. This is my sample. Considering my first five slots are full, I won't be plugging the link here until I've finished these five and am confident in my samples! *grins*
