Proposed head end to go with tail end. ;-)

Started drawing this during the flight back from Kenya. Only just(kind of)finished now. Horrible two weeks after returning to London. Don't really want to talk about it... :-(

Image based on a maasai warrior I met at Hell's Gate who guided us out of the gorge and then proceeded to tell us of his encounter with a lion. (The tale was so long and we got so engrossed that the rest of the safari group went without us, and we had to walk eight kilometers back to the entrance gate.)

Another member of the LAPD in Nikki Silver's universe. Officer Ben Newark scopes out a crime ridden district. Apparently he's an old hand at this...

Another 'cover' pic of Nikki Silver and his partner, Kamilla.

Another member of the LAPD, this time it is Lt. Koname. Cerebral, strict and hard-working while on duty, she is very sociable and fun-loving otherwise. Doesn't really show in this drawing, though...

Well I think that it's about time that I introduce the rest of the crew in the Nikki Silver story. In no particular order of preference. ;-) This is LAPD non-uniform officer Arun, a big friendly guy with a (un)healthy yearning for action.

I have a confession to make with this one. After seeing the trailer of Cats & Dogs for the first time, I was gobsmacked and the excitement was too much for me to bear, so I leapt for the pad as soon as I got home! Saying that, though, after seeing the trailer another few times I'm not looking forward to it so much now... :-( Anyway, here is the result of my once gleeful anticipation.

We've finally migrated to Flash 5. YAHEY! Lots more new shortcuts to learn, a whole new set of ActionScript commands to memorise, a ton more quirks to get used to... erm, yes. Sarcasm aside, I'm actually starting to love this program. Once I can get my head around 'smart clips' and dot syntax, I suspect I'll love it even more. Anyway, the miffed horse 'Flash-ed' as part of an ActionScript experiment.

My first try at CG colouring one of my drawings. Hm. Might not be doing this *too* often...

danchors.JPG
Image: danchors.JPG   535x694 31349 bytes 2001.06.23

This was drawn after the first night at my sister's house looking after the house and my nephew while she was sunning it in St. Lucia. This was after I had lost all will to draw anything, and then... well I think it must have been the change in the environment or something, but I couldn't put the pencil down for... Oh yeah, description, sorry; this is a lovely dancing horse. *ah-heh* :-x

angrycat.JPG
Image: angrycat.JPG   435x694 31617 bytes 2001.06.17

Trying to see how I handle anger wrinkles on a big cat. Think I went a tad overboard with this one (Ah, the wonders of understatement)...

A close up of an anthro zebra (or zeebra? ;-) ).

Awwww! (Alright stop laughing at the back there!) I'm not usually one for drawing kwoot 'n' kubblwy, but I was walking down the street while at lunch break one day, and caught sight of this lovely shepherd and I-don't-know-what cross sitting at the bus stop looking at me with big gorgeous eyes. Well I went all gooshy there and then. When I got home I couldn't get the picture of that dog out of my head, so I relented to draw an anthro version that was, well, all-giving. :-D

My pathetic attempt at drawing from a photo (not directly copying, just trying to imagine what it would look like from a different angle).

A punky lookin' 'orse 'angin' roun' th' gaff, mate!

A leopard finds out the hard way about picking a race with a cheetah. Put me off drawing backgrounds, this one. :-(

During my TMNT fanboy period I invented these two characters to join in their adventures. Alpha (left) is, basically, based on me (What was I THINKING!?! :-x) and is an all-round unarmed combat expert who loves computer games and uses a pair of yo-yos as weapons. Sprite (right) is a orphaned Japanese immigrant who happens to be an electronics wiz and proficient with a bo staff that can section into two shorter staffs for close combat. 1992 Sean Alpha Bernard

A "promo" pic featuring Dee catching some air on one of them snakeboard, er, thingies. 1997, 2001 Sean Alpha Bernard

A little insight into the story of Dee Mann, complete with some before/after profiles.

"We need to re-establish who's in charge here, pal!!!" Jack is Dee's owner, or at least was before the botched reincarnation. (Yep, groans all round from all who noticed!).

N.B.: This is NOT necessarily my 'furry persona' but the animal that I mostly see myself as. (Aren't they the same thing? Dunno.)

Bella.jpg
Image: Bella.jpg   379x694 22489 bytes 2001.06.10

Character that exists in Nikki's universe. Actually I thought "Okay, plenty of horses, but no donkeys? Need to sort that out!"

Another 'promo' image of the story I ditched. Basically it was about two lab animals who were part of an project launched by the military to use animals for covert operations by augmenting advanced mental skills into their 'psyche'. The rabbit was given the skills of computer expert and survelliance operator while the hare was a weapons expert who also happened to excel in unarmed combat (however useful THAT was going to be...). Anyway the two escaped and blah, blah, yackety-shmack...

This turned out to be interesting, since I wasn't entirely sure what big cat species I was drawing (purely out of my head, no references or anything). I sure don't know how the slightly "feral" aspects got in there...

Deeshuka.jpg
Image: Deeshuka.jpg   463x694 27644 bytes 2001.06.08

There are dogs that can dance. There are very few dogs, though, that can do the Shuka-Luka (whatever that is). Dee isn't one of these dogs, but he sure can mooove to th' groove! Yip-yeah!!!

Already my mind was set on doing a swimsuit issue, so I threw Nikki into this slinky little number... I'm - just - kidding! The acorn that he's holding in his hand isn't his snack between meals, by the way. It's meant to illustrate the title of the series of stories that I was going to write about him and his universe.

Nikki doing his duty, armed with LAPD standard issue "Trigun".

"Ya ain't gon' anywhere 'til I get my kicks for the night, pal!!!" Dee shows why he's a very effective guard dog. Dee Mann is Sean Alpha Bernard.

Portrait of a character that I was in the process of writing a story around. His name is Nikki Silver, and he is a private dick who resides and operates in twenty-second century Los Angeles. He is supposed to be a Grey/Red cross, but the Red genes seem to be dominant. (Or was it that I forgot to colour in any hint of grey? D'oh!!!) Nikki Silver, P.I., is 1993,2001 Sean Alpha Bernard.
