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.

Illo. for the masthead of one of my Rowrbrazzle "Muste-lines" submissions. It's Sy (my personal aquatic skiltaire) and Rodney's arboreal, Rani.\n

One of my latest sketches, which I hope to color a few different ways to compare techniques. This is Sylys and his very wonderful, exotic and sexy kitty mate, Aronel :) Aronel is (c) William Ringland.\n

sybelleS.jpg

A sketch book drawing of a female Black Footed Ferret. "The Belle of Sybelle" is a reference to the location of the captive breeding center that was started to save this endangered species. Thanks to Mike Susko for sending me the copy!

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 and Samantha Kemple, my friend Ken Sample's skunk re-com, enjoying each other. When he saw this, he asked: "what are they doing in My room?" :) Samantha Kemple is (c) Ken Sample\r\n

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!

sylys1B.jpg
Image: sylys1B.jpg   600x816 123562 bytes 2000.07.30

The 'origin' of me, that is, the first picture of Sylys ever. I took a photo of myself for a model. I really did have a violet jump suit. Tails were shorter back then, but thanks to folks like Ken, I now have a much more impressive tail! My old signature is my RL initials "MFM". I like being Sy better!\n

A lot of my 1985 art was done for Rodney, who was going to Sonoma State U. (about 600 miles away). I used a magazine photo for the model. This drawing became desktop art, showing up in some most unlikely places... like the computer lab UNIX workstations at CMU!\n

syotterS.jpg
Image: syotterS.jpg   528x600 48662 bytes 2001.05.28

Sylys (me) and a handsome otter enjoying each other. I should try coloring this.\r\n

Illo done for a bio of my personal furry, Sylys Sable (who is an American Pine Marten... go figure) Sylys Sable is (c) Mark Merlino (me!)\n

SyTaurS.jpg
Image: SyTaurS.jpg   592x800 82190 bytes 2003.02.19

This is a quick inked sketch of Sylys Sable (me, the American Marten), as a taur, done during the Taur SIG at Furthur Confusion '03.

SytreeB.jpg
Image: SytreeB.jpg   447x600 77350 bytes 2000.07.08

These days my best stuff is done in other artist's sketchbooks. This silly picture of Sylys is based on the pose of the pine marten photo on my desktop. The very nice artist I did this for let me scan it. ( Thanks, Chris!)\n

I used to find the time to do my own holiday cards. This was done in 1991, and includes me (the one in the center) and my roomates at the time as their respective Skiltaire.\n

Tanzbar1CS.jpg
Image: Tanzbar1CS.jpg   551x800 195331 bytes 2003.02.25

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!

Tanzbar1S.jpg
Image: Tanzbar1S.jpg   558x767 68752 bytes 2003.02.25

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).

tatialexB.jpg
Image: tatialexB.jpg   600x682 120906 bytes 2001.05.28

Tatiana from "Animalympics" and her brother, Alexi, together in a dance pose. This is my version of the character, adn Alexi was created by Ror O'Riley.\r\n

thalia1B.jpg
Image: thalia1B.jpg   462x600 48870 bytes 2000.07.08

Another Skiltaire from a SF FRP game (Traveler). Thalia, the aquatic, is the mate of Rodney's human character.\n

thaliastrchB.jpg
Image: thaliastrchB.jpg   600x481 64748 bytes 2000.07.30

Another in the series of drawings done for Rodney of Thalia, his RPG player character's mate. She's stretching and yawning... and being rather obvious with her body language. That's the way she is :)\n

thaliaveilB.jpg
Image: thaliaveilB.jpg   600x772 160557 bytes 2000.07.30

Thalia, the Skiltaire created for Rodney's "Traveler RPG" character, doing a veil dance. Skiltaire can walk (and dance) on their hind legs. This is one of a series I did for Rodney while he was away at SSU.\n

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.

A picture of Thalia for her human love, Douglas. Another in the series I made for Rodney while he was away at college in 1985. He provided me with all of this art from his collection. I didn't realize how much art I did during that time! I must have been inspired... Thanks, Rodney!\n
