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.

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

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.

Panther (or puma or cougar, whatever floats yer boat) in a root'n' toot'n' shoot'n' spaghetti western type pose. Oh yeah, and he's got what is supposed to be a gun.

Another reactionary pic, this time on the misunderstood image of the pit bull terrier.

The Serval And The Caracal. I don't know where the idea for this came from. Probably from my opinion that they have an certain air of sophistication about them, despite being feral wildcats.

The dobie's back in town! After a whole age of not actually managing to shade much, I picked a sketch and tried to pick up from where I left off. One cannot lay to rest on a slippery slope, it seems. ;-)

A young snow leopard staring into space. No reference material was used for this sad looking beast. Can you tell? I thought as much!

Don't know if cheetahs would be able to reach 70 on their hind legs but I thought this would be good for a laugh... (ooh, look, more spots! ;-))

I don't usually draw anthros wearing clothes, nowadays, so this is a bit of a rarity. The pose was based on a photo of a real dog (named Faith) that had no front paws and ran around on her hind legs. The clothes were taken from a fashion catalogue shot.

First use of my off-topic allowance. Produced for a cover of a newletter for my mum's spiritual movement, The Way Of Ankh Fellowship. It has been running for ten years now, and we decided to start this newsletter as part of our anniversary celebration.\r\n\r\nMade entirely in Photoshop. Illustrator would obviously be a better choice of application to render this, but I didn't have access to a copy.

A territorial dispute gets out of hand as one tiger actually carries out his threat, much to the horror of the weaker challenger. An exercise in facial expression.

Tiger playing "Upsee" with a frisky little cub. I think she's looking to scare the little tyke a bit... ;-)

I drew this head of a tiger while on a flight to Egypt back in '97.

Full size version of an avatar for TigerZero (character property of fellow NAA assessor, Larry Dinkel). For the Avatar Pot Luck event that ran in the VCL Forums.

Post feeding frenzy japery. Two sharks in desperate need of some fashion sense and a toothpick.

*CRUSTY ARTWORK ALERT!* *CRUSTY ARTWORK ALERT!* The following set of images is from an unfinished comic book made in 1992, featuring Alpha and Sprite. I did a lot of inking back then, using a Berol drawing pen, but this was the first time I used a stylus and brush with bottled ink. As you probably will see as we go through these images, it was a messy experience. Anyway first page (BTW it's Unheard Noise, ALIVE Silence).

Yes, Alpha was based on me. I look back and chuckle at how I so wished to be a carefree martial arts dude like the Ninja Turtles were (come to think of it, I wouldn't so much mind to be one now). You may have noticed the whole Yin/Yang influence in the pages you've seen so far. I'm a great fan of balance (being a Libran and all ;-) ), and was aiming to balance out the amount of darkness and light, as well as the presence of the two characters with each spread. Whether it has worked or not I'll leave up to the viewer to decide. (see UNALpg1 desc)

Sprite isn't based on anyone in RL in particular, but it occured to me back then that I never really had any japanese friends, and since I was quite into Japan it would be pretty decent to have one. I also desired an opposite in nature for Alpha; while Alpha is cool, calm and easy-going, Sprite is disciplined and hot-headed. Did I not mention that I was into polarity? ;-) (see UNALpg1 and UNALpg4 desc)

A unicorn battles with a winged horse. Came out a bit badly, so I decided "Oh, what's the use..."

Yes this is a late, late entry, I missed it, I know. \r\n\r\nBut I have a good reason why. Soon after the comprehensive nostril transplant, my ravishing root of a radish was ravaged in a raid by a rutless band of ravenous rag-eared rabbits. It was horrible. They didn't even bring any mayonnaise! Swine!!!\r\n\r\n(Oh alright, I left it till the last and was too late. *grumble*)

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