Tanzbar, the wolverine adventuress-cook/baker from a Furry D&D FRP I'm playing in. This is based on a Xena\r\npose I found. I'll be coloring it soon (I hope).

Sylvan Martin, intelligence/linguistics specialist of the Stargate SG7 team. He wasn't always like this... he and the\r\nrest of his team changed into anthro animals while exploring a planet populated by such beings. He's a\r\nyellow-throated marten (as you can see in the color version)

My first color version of Tanzbar, my wolverine baker's daughter-turned adventuress. She's pretty good with a staff, not bad with a small crossbow, and excellent with a frying pan!

The color version of Sylvan Martin, in his yellow-throated marten (an Asian species) form. Their fur really IS that beautiful! He's relaxing and reading the complete "Book or Going Forth by Day" (the Egyptian Book of the Dead). I really have a copy of this. I recomemnd it.

Ashu, the Horet captain of our ship in the Velvet Paw campaign of our RPG. Horet are a jackal-based race that live much like ancient Egyptians. I think I ws inspired by the song "Walk like an Egyptian". Ashu is (c) Bill Ringland.

Sylys laying on the garden wall of their estate in Parnamanathalaxis, surprises his mate, Aronel (aka Lord Tanager). When I paint this, I will add the plants that the sneaky Arborny is hidden by. Aronel is (c) Bill Ringland (HUG!) and Sylys is (c) me!

My wonderful mate, Aronel, helped me navigate Photoshop 5, and this is the result. My first computer painted image! (since MS Paint 16-bit... blah) I want to try some other techniques, but I'm quite happy with my first try. Aronel and the rest of my family liked it too. Sylys is (c) me

Sydney Fisher in a tree. The cutoff of the image is on purpose, something Ken suggested I might try. This is a sketch in Fred Perry's (creator of Golddigger)sketchbook. He asked ME to draw in his book at Worldcon '93. Wow!

The back cover of Rowrbrazzle #52 (the funny animal APA). This was the "Swimsuit Issue" (everybody does those now...)\r\nThe Aquatic Skiltaire model can't figure out what the other part of the bikini is for. The photographer is clueless also.

This was the cover art for a special erotic story "Rites of Fantasy" which I wrote for Thylin in 1995 as a Valentines Day gift. Maybe I'll post it here some day... (Thylin is (c) S.Raney)

A quick illo. of Chysp (Arborny(marten)), Ashu (Horet(jackal)) and Mirissa (Miyen(feline)) sleeping together, for a mother's day card. This may have been inspired by an Ollie print I saw. The caption on the card: "Dogs and cats, sleeping together... with martens!" :) \r\n

Anja, Chysp's familiar, is a phase-fox. They can pass through solid objects using a kind of TK. Someone must have called her when she was half way through the door, so she turned around to find out why.\r\n

S'lys, the Tigrant, showering in a waterfall. I'm not really into Giants/macro, but Ken created this big guy for me, so he's special. :) The buck in the lower-left corner is for scale.\r\n

Jillian BFF (Black Footed Ferret), one of my characters on the Fur Le Dance room on the Tiger's Den BBS (not to be confused with Tiger Den). An attractive, forward female with a moderate bustline, which may be as rare as Black Footed Ferrets are! I think I'll try to re-ink this one some time.\r\n

Another sketch book drawing. Most of the art I do now is in those black sketch books. I consider it a great compliment to be asked for a drawing. I suppose if I get good, I'll start charging. :) This is Lucas, a wolverine re-com detective and Cam, a caracal re-com cyber-punk hacker. Their partners. They work together, too. :)
