Street Fighting Cat. A tough tabby who's... hey, he's wearing my leather jacket! Technical pens on sketch paper, the wall behind him was blurred with Photodeluxe.

Image: armadillo.jpg   749x395 80677 bytes 2003.03.16

She came out of the Texas desert to get revenge for her fellow 'dillers, squashed on the nation's highways by careless human drivers. SUV owners, beware!! Mixed media and Photoshop, March 2003. Sketch originally done, May 2002.

Image: armor_swan.jpg   675x668 134851 bytes 2002.04.12

This image was inspired by a dream. I got up that morning and sketched it out, so please don't crucify me on the details of the armor or anything, I tried to be true to the image I had in my head. I also decided *not* to re-size the wings, since at this size they worked better in the composition. Mixed media on illustration board, original sketch done Feb. 12, 2002.

"May all beings be free from fear." In the end, I decided against coloring this piece, I like the ink work too much. This was drawn from a Tibetan sculpture of Kuan Yin, and I have no idea who the original artist was. Of course, their Kuan Yin was human, but I didn't let that stand in my way. Besides, Cats at rest bring meditation to mind. Technical pen on sketch paper, March 2002.

(Also on Elfwood)

Image: cash_cover.jpg   713x713 90541 bytes 2002.02.14

The cover of a Cash mixdisc I made for a friend. Johnny Cash just reminds me of a big ol' black Crow. This is about actual size, or it's supposed to be. It looks a lot bigger on the screen. ovO

Image: cassie.jpg   585x800 137614 bytes 2002.12.31

This was a commission done for Foxonian, of his character, Cassie the Rock 'n Roll Vixen. You can look at his collection of other Cassie fan-art and stories at Mixed media on illustration board, December 2002. Cassie is (c) Earl "Foxonian" Bacon

Image: cassie2.jpg   750x580 129750 bytes 2003.08.07

More Cassie fun, this piece from March or thereabouts. Mixed media, and a pose I struggled mightily with. Cassie (c) Earl "Foxonian" Bacon, art by Me.

Image: cizkaro.jpg   802x1050 96268 bytes 2004.12.02

Cizkaro's char (c) to Ciz himself, art (c) Pshaw, 2004. Ink and Prisma markers on bristol. This piece has a long and checkered history, including being stolen, lost, partially bug-eaten, and finally, finished and posted on VCL for you, the furry public. I'm doing this noirish, artsy thing where I crop off parts of the character and use this moody grayscale.

Image: cybear_morningstar.jpg   549x691 94076 bytes 2003.04.01

Commission for CyBear and Morningstar, a cybernetic Polar Bear and a Dimar Dragon, respectively. Each character is the (c) of their players. The usual mixed media suspects, March 03. I like the color scheme here.

Image: down_and_out.jpg   529x600 63596 bytes 2002.02.14

Pshaw the Raven, down and out. "Nobody knows you when you down and out/ In my pockets not one penny/ and my friends I haven't any."

Image: down_and_out2.jpg   561x750 97212 bytes 2003.08.31

An updated "Down and Out," since the previous one dates from 2001. My drawing skills have improved somewhat since then. ;> I use this on my Furbid auction page, and have a saved copy with no text, so I can put whatever witty remarks I like on the sign. Mixed media, blah blah blah, August 2003.

Image: easter_card.jpg   600x423 77475 bytes 2002.02.15

Last year's Easter card was the first finished drawing I'd ever done of Gatorgrrl. It was also done before I really started studying human anatomy. Watercolor on bristol board, about actual size.

Image: egret.gif   529x720 152897 bytes 2002.02.15

Snowy Egret in Peacock Kimono. I know the kimono isn't precisely right, and I don't want to hear about it. Technical pen on sketch paper. April or so, 2001.

Image: floydmephit.jpg   669x825 161781 bytes 2003.10.21

Just a technical-pen portrait of Floyd Mephit of Texas. The bike in nominally a Harley, but it's just my usual schizophrenic mish-mash of machinery. There's one major thing wrong with it, can you spot it?

Image: gator_nun_preggo.jpg   546x900 56162 bytes 2003.04.12

Personal drawing, for my own amusement (I'm going to hell, I'm sure of it), a pregnant nun Gator. Mixed media, (c) Pshaw, April 2003.

Image: gryphoness.jpg   541x682 80227 bytes 2003.04.13

Ah, I'm very pleased with how she's come out! A test-flight for some new techniques and what seems to be a new style I'm evolving, as I said, I'm delighted. Hope you are, too. This naughty gryphoness is mixed acryllics, watercolors, and pencil, leaning on a watercolor stone wall. (c) Me, April 2003.

Image: iravens_2.jpg   750x325 85182 bytes 2003.12.22

Collect them all! I reworked this from a marker drawing I'd done in 2001, though it's a bit late out of the gate, since they don't make a certain brightly-colored computer anymore. They all come in white now. Watercolor and pencil. Dec. 2003.

Image: kwakira.gif   553x1066 151781 bytes 2002.02.15

Kwakira is an anthro Mandarin Duck done to illustrate an article in a RP magazine. I have no idea who owns the rights to the character. Yes, he has a shell strapped to his head. It's a long story.

Image: large_steelie_syrris.jpg   1024x1037 259663 bytes 2003.12.22

This one took some time to finish, but I won't get into all the stalls and pitfalls here. The original measures 14 x 14 inches, and had to be scanned in four sections. What's going on is Syrris, the lion with the plate of fish, builds mechanical gryphons, one of which is Steelclaw there on the left. He's just given her a sense of smell, and she's checking out the scents of all the foods, while Pshaw helps herself to some stuffed mushrooms. Sept. - Dec. 2003

Image: leaping.jpg   675x515 140064 bytes 2002.02.22

A commission for DragonMastrz, the White Tigress is Branca and her companion is Ragoth. The characters are copyright to Mike Brown. The art is, of course, mine. Mixed media, and I like the swirly movement in this pic. It has an energetic feeling to me.

Image: leo.jpg   466x600 192365 bytes 2002.06.16

Another piece done for a mail art project, this one was "A Pride of Leos" notebook. I couldn't think of anything great and profound to write about being a Leo, so I drew a picture. Markers and technical pens on sketch paper, mounted on heavy colored paper.

Image: levant_pants.jpg   510x675 275740 bytes 2002.02.15

Dude, Where's my Pants? A commission for Magnoona, of her RP character Levant. He's a Wolf-Lion crossbreed... with no pants. Hey, Donald Duck doesn't wear them, either. Mixed media on illustration board.

Image: mother_falcon.jpg   800x786 134026 bytes 2003.05.11

A mother Peregrine Falcon and her nestling. Baby birds are sort of ugly, huh? Mother's Day 03 illustration - watercolor and pencil. Prints available - email me to find out more.

Image: nauta_shorts.jpg   975x788 89889 bytes 2003.04.12

Nauta Sinneau strips for some skinny-dipping at the beach. This is watercolor and some pencil work on board, with Photoshop tweaking, I'm very pleased with it. Shorts by PhinSkins, surfboard by Local Motion, and artwork by Pshaw. Nauta is (c) hirself. ( Orcan Industries Shipyards.

Image: raven_jacket.jpg   631x864 185835 bytes 2004.02.10

I've always wanted to paint something cool on the back of my biker jacket. The total working time here was about twenty hours, not including the initial sketch. Acryllics with iridescent medium on leather. December 2003. Listening to: "Cold Mountain" soundtrack and Jerry Jeff Walker, "Great Gonzos." (c) Jessie Thomas

Image: ravenatr.jpg   463x600 77901 bytes 2002.02.15

The Flyin' Ravens! I did this after seeing a whole bunch of WWII movies in one week. Colored pencil on heavy paper.

Image: ravenous.jpg   447x450 80103 bytes 2002.10.12

I did this for a mail art call on the theme "Books2Eat". Marker and ink on toned paper, March 2002.

Image: smoking.jpg   750x585 117508 bytes 2002.02.15

A commission piece, the Jackal and Dragon are characters (c) Smoking Dragon. Mixed media on illustration board. This looks cool in person because the Dragon's body is higlighted with green pearlescent ink.

Image: snow_queen.jpg   567x600 200530 bytes 2002.10.12

No one seems to want to buy this, so I'm stuck with it. That's okay, I like it well enough, but it's actually quite large, twelve inches square or so. Mixed media on illustration board, March 2002.
