Conbadge for a fictional character. Won't you please hire me to a conbadge for a real character? That is to say...one that represents an actual person...never mind, go bid:\r\n\r\nhttp://www.furbid.ws/cgi-bin/auction.pl?alluser&Rey

I promised myself I'd do a Halloween picture in time for Halloween this year. So here it is, for those of you for which it is still technically Halloween. Arr.

badgerey.jpg
Image: badgerey.jpg   400x304 43172 bytes 2004.10.13

Thinkin' 'bout the times we drove in my car, thinkin' that I might have drove you too far...\r\n\r\nAnyway, this is an example conbadge I whipped up for my conbadge auction (buy! http://www.furbid.ws/cgi-bin/auction.pl?commission_gen&1098563035 buy!), which I'll probably never use because I may never go to a fur con again, and also because I got a better idea for a badge for me if I ever do go.

azcuirrel.jpg
Image: azcuirrel.jpg   500x642 79525 bytes 2004.07.13

Squirrelo bandito. Ground squirrel, too, because I'm all original and stuff (and there aren't many trees in the Mexican deserts). Inspired by the Daily Show (long story), and drawn in sepia conte on a nifty piece of cardboard that I got in a wall calendar about two years ago.

tex.jpg
Image: tex.jpg   250x383 28652 bytes 2004.03.13

And here's a Texan pinup jackrabbit. These took me longer than I thought to do (why don't I ever see that coming?). And now I can't work on the other ones because I'm going to be mostly offline until late summer, banding burrowing owls in central Washington (for real). *shrug*

ala.jpg
Image: ala.jpg   250x370 27122 bytes 2004.03.13

The second part of the Greetings from America project, a set of 4 X 6 inch images meant to look like old window decals. Well, sort of like old window decals, I mean, if you think *this* green is screaming, imagine if I had to stick with the old four-color printing process, it would be the limest of the limes.\r\n\r\nI sure hope that southern ladies (belles?) hold their hand fans like that, 'cause that's the way I drew it.

jacko.jpg
Image: jacko.jpg   500x663 39376 bytes 2003.11.01

Okay, I was wrong, I do have another holiday related picture, and I'm sneaking this one in just under the wire for those who haven't already left for their Halloween shindigs (or already gone to bed in Europe).\r\n\r\nThis is my jack o' lantern for 2003, the first one into which I put my whole ass, or at least 7/8 of it. And it looks nice, I think. I'll have to check the VCL sieve to see if anybody else carved one this year.

uvira.jpg
Image: uvira.jpg   450x573 50427 bytes 2003.10.17

Consider this my Halloween image, because I doubt that I will ever again have this convergence of the completion and uploading of a sort-of-seasonal image and the occurence of the season depicted in the image.\r\n\r\nIt's Ultraviolet, who has quickly emerged as one of the fandom's most recognizable characters due to the efforts of her talented creator and legion of fans. Dolling her up like horror hostess Elvira was my idea.\r\n\r\nUV is Cassandra Gunn

raksasa-colored.jpg
Image: raksasa-colored.jpg   400x538 71540 bytes 2003.05.16

Pencil and ink by Kierstal, printing and paper by Kinko's, color scribblings by me. She was going through a bout of color-phobia, and in this particular case, I felt that it would be a crime against art for this sexy picture to go hueless.\r\n\r\nRaksasa is Tori Crossman

blacklight.jpg
Image: blacklight.jpg   400x523 90139 bytes 2003.05.16

Inspired by an online conversation, and revealing one of my guilty pleasures: coloring with purple. I may have sacrificed some artistic effect to realism by modeling the teeth after photos of fox skulls I saw on the internet (instead of making them interlace perfectly gap-less), but oh well, I should hope the effect is still unnerving enough.

preen.jpg
Image: preen.jpg   400x527 70731 bytes 2003.05.15

Another picture of Eapa, although I usually try to say that it could be any winged snake, because that way I would have more hopes of selling prints. Universiality, you know; not everyone knows Eapa, but most people will react to a snake with wings, preening with it's little snakey tongue. \r\n\r\nAnyway, tried here with some success to integrate the color of the paper into the drawing, so I wouldn't drive myself nuts trying to eliminate every speck of paper from colored areas. Cara Mitten does it better, of course. \r\n\r\nEapa Sara Kent

snake.jpg
Image: snake.jpg   400x521 60216 bytes 2003.05.15

A picture I drew for a Chinese Zodiac-themed anthro calender that never panned out. You know how it is trying to coordinate a bunch of artists. Lahk herdin' cyats, it is. The snake is associated with various characteristics that made me draw it as an apothecary. What those characteristics are, I don't remember.\r\n\r\nAnd for those keeping track, that's a Chinese sharp nose viper. With arms.

neil.jpg
Image: neil.jpg   450x509 48949 bytes 2003.05.15

My half of an art trade with Kitsune25. I need to do more rodents and more pencil drawings. \r\n\r\nNeil Simonsen Kitsune25

wbw.jpg
Image: wbw.jpg   400x521 59989 bytes 2003.05.15

I drew this out of the desire to show off the coloration of the spotted skunk. In a bathhouse. Think of that Pink Floyd "back catalogue" poster. Oh, and her right arm isn't really missing below the elbow, it's just not visible (where could it be? what could it be doing?), and the way her left hand comes around her body, and the size of the scan...excuses, excuses. Black and white charcoal pencils, and a gold metallic Prismacolor pencil.

dali.jpg
Image: dali.jpg   400x514 58177 bytes 2003.05.15

Another commission, this one features Dali, a red wolf, and a pack llama. I looked at photos of red wolves before drawing this, and I still came out with something bright and unrealistic (but not dissatisfying to the commissioner, thankfully). Plus, the scan didn't catch all the yellow bunch grass, so the background is missing an element. Well, you win some, you lose some.\r\n\r\nDali is her player.

progress.jpg
Image: progress.jpg   782x514 110015 bytes 2003.05.15

This might have some deep meaning, but I'd rather not belabor it. It's split into two for more practical reasons, though: I didn't want to cram this all onto one little 8.5 X 11 inch sheet, but I also wanted it to be on my blue toned paper. So I drew on two seperate sheets, and tried to stitch them together on the computer, with no success.

janewolf.jpg
Image: janewolf.jpg   400x544 50828 bytes 2003.05.15

It's all about duality. And the secrets of a supposedly normal young girl. And mixing four or five colored pencils to get "industrial green" for the subway walls. I now have a Prismacolor pencil that reproduces that color pretty much exactly.

basque.jpg
Image: basque.jpg   400x521 31738 bytes 2003.05.15

Look, I'm being cultural. A Basque lynxess (Spanish lynx) does a traditional Basque dance in Basque clothing. The pose was adapted from a photo of my former next-door neighbor.

mistwing.jpg
Image: mistwing.jpg   589x450 82314 bytes 2003.05.15

My first paid commission, and a fun drawing. Sort of calls to mind the reason why people are glad that cows can't fly. Same sort of thing goes for skunks.\r\n\r\nMistwing is Vega E. Altair

sblight.jpg
Image: sblight.jpg   348x548 100034 bytes 2003.05.15

The world-famous gothbunny, dressed a bit more nicely than usual. \r\n\r\nSilverblue is Ceredwyn Ealanta

headlights.jpg
Image: headlights.jpg   348x517 49595 bytes 2003.05.15

A cloaked coyote in the rain by the side of the road, illuminated by the headlights of an oncoming car. An attempt at an atmospheric sort of picture.\r\n

samalowe.jpg
Image: samalowe.jpg   300x467 27426 bytes 2003.05.15

Inspired by a paper I did for Anthropology in college, this picture depicts a descendant of the Father of the Wolves paying tribute to the gods. The medium is sepia conte crayon. I like the simplicity of this medium, but not the smudginess.

poolsune.jpg
Image: poolsune.jpg   384x500 39363 bytes 2003.05.15

A kitsune finds a novel use for that little white ball they carry around. \r\n\r\nI realize that sometimes, a picture in this gallery will have my old pseudonym written on it, and sometimes it will have my real name. Well, there's not much I can do about that, seeing as I sold the original of this picture for a song (that's all it could fetch on FurBid, sigh). \r\n

errick.jpg
Image: errick.jpg   371x528 45671 bytes 2003.05.15

Actually, this may have been a requested picture as well. But at least he was a nice guy.\r\n\r\nErrick is his player.

huntress.jpg
Image: huntress.jpg   400x522 33660 bytes 2003.05.15

Be vewwy vewwy quiet. She's hunting foxes.

rey2k.jpg
Image: rey2k.jpg   387x668 89485 bytes 2003.05.15

this is me! me is (c)ed to me, no steal me or I chew yor ankels off!!!!!1 this char is my SOUL!!!!!1\r\n\r\nBut no. It's just an artistic representation of myself as an anthropomorphic gray fox. Standing in front of old paneling.

antifur.jpg
Image: antifur.jpg   522x403 68568 bytes 2003.05.15

And then there's the lovely Marla. ;) So just why *do* all our human-animal combinations always gotta have an animal head and a human body and animal feet and human hands and etc.? Huh, teacher, huh?\r\n\r\nOh, and all those folks who claim that genetically engineered anthromorphs are just a few years away should accept that the scientists in charge of it will probably create a lot of these poor creatures before they get anything aesthetically pleasing.

deadeye.jpg
Image: deadeye.jpg   407x562 78989 bytes 2003.05.15

Parts of this I'm proud of, parts of it make me cringe (the mystical ball of mystical red/pink flame, mostly). It also highlights my main problem with doing free art for people, and that is that when folks don't have to pay, they don't feel the need to put any effort into having an interesting or aesthetically pleasing character. This is a silly mishmash of disparate elements. Plus, the requester pulled the old disappearing act on me, without so much as a thank you. Well, that only had to happen twice for me to say "Screw you guys, I'm goin' hayome," and start charging for any time I felt like doing somebody else's crap (this was early 2000, btw).\r\n\r\nDeadeye is some flake...I mean, her player. \r\n

jehrtash.jpg

Upload #1, and it feels so good. Anyway, the earliest piece from my archive I feel good about putting up. I used to do folks' requests for free, and this is a romantic picture featuring a somewhat Egyptian-dressed lioness (Tashly), and an otter (Jehr), who was supposed to be physically non-morphic, but I ain't havin' that kind of hanky panky, so I compromised a bit. The cop-a-feel is perhaps a bit out of place, but one of them suggested it, and I was all too happy to comply... \r\n\r\nJehr and Tashly are their respective players.
