I'm not sure how this looks... not working from home.\r\n\r\nI told you to feed the dog. Now look what happened.\r\n\r\nArtwork belongs to me.

I have mixed feelings about 'Happy Feet'. I think it was improperly marketed as a children's movie....it was too long, had no less than four seperate political undertones, and the plot lacked a lot of originality.\r\n\r\nBut I'll be damned if I didn't like watching the little bastards dance \r\n\r\nThe entire thing is vector - including my signature. Damn, I do love the live trace option \r\n\r\nArt belongs to me.

I'm trying to see if one's hand really can fall off as a result of too much drawing. So far, I am simply sore and fatigued.\r\n\r\nSometimes my kiriban winners really luck out o.o\r\n\r\nAix belongs to Rain, Art belongs to me.

winter.jpg
Image: winter.jpg   420x770 66608 bytes 2006.12.29

When I'm coloring is when I often think of the witty phrase to put here. Tonight all I could think of was\r\n\r\n"YOU WON'T LIKE ME WHEN I'M MILDLY IRRITATED."\r\n\r\nWhich still amuses me, but whatever.\r\n\r\nWinterwing is me so long as they can keep claiming Jadestar is fresh intellectual property.

tora.jpg
Image: tora.jpg   418x600 63536 bytes 2006.12.29

A bizzare thing that came out of the sketch-group this week. The idea for him came to me last night. I fear a story on the horizon. Damn. \r\n\r\nParts I like, parts I don't... but it really is just a bunch of marker over a sketch \r\n\r\nArt and character belongs to me.

cali06.jpg
Image: cali06.jpg   447x742 72835 bytes 2006.12.29

A late b-day pic for Michelle of her duck character. One horrid challange of drawing Calista is trying to come up with an image that doesn't look like the other 1,000 that exist of her. .... yeah.... definatly had to use a ref on that pose. Lawl ^^\r\n\r\nGoose steppin!\r\n\r\nCalista belongs to Michelle Latta, Artwork belongs to me.

The similarities between Emily and Starbuck kind of worry me. Both are snarky little blond girls, with a fracked up right knee, and pilots.\r\n\r\nThe only thing for it was a flightsuit based off that horrid brown/blue color scheme. Whoever designed those boots needs a good whack with a champagne bottle filled with acid.\r\n\r\nEmily belongs to me, as does the art.

mixed.jpg
Image: mixed.jpg   700x488 79193 bytes 2006.07.09

Kitton's been doing a mixed media project of late. So I was like 'zomg cool' and tried my hand at something.... I guess it's a little more orderly, which kinda defeats the purpose of letting loose in mediumn ;) I learned a few things... Like you can't use alcohol based markers on wrapping paper. That half my Tria's are dry. And that I really don't have a clue ^^ Ink, marker, wrapping paper, newsprint, and I guess you can still see some of the pencil lines. Sedia and artwork belong to me

avian.jpg
Image: avian.jpg   600x357 83883 bytes 2006.06.30

Not quite as neat and orderly as 'The Roadside', but supposed to be somewhat the same idea. This was a quicker drawing done over a few hours in Photoshop. Anatomical errors whoopie.\r\n\r\nIt's occured to me that I've been drawing Winterwing/Wildwing's beaks far, far too short. Blah.\r\n\r\n\r\nI realize that without context, this image becomes somewhat suggestive, and you'll just have to deal with it. It comes from the same storyline as the Roadside peice, except a little over a year down the road (it occurs to me that their hair grows really, really fast. teheoops).\r\n\r\nCharacters and artwork belong to me.

dontae.jpg
Image: dontae.jpg   300x640 52792 bytes 2006.06.09

... On average, I have to redraw male characters about 1,000,000 more times than females. ARG.\r\n\r\nAnyway, another one over and done with. I tried to make it more interesting than a guy just standing there but... I dunno ._.\r\n\r\nDontae belongs to Da Roz\r\nArt belongs to me.

Those of you who realize that my last kiriban upload was entitled 12345... honestly, I promise I know how to count.\r\n\r\nI'm just no good at drawing men. This took me so long to finally sit down and do. I'm a little ashamed of myself. At least it's done. I think this is better than my last of the same character, at least, so perhaps a little good came out of it.\r\n\r\nDevon belongs to Casey Ugone, artwork belongs to me

Your purpose is our purpose. Throw off the shackles of what you were born and become what we invision. Embrace that which we give you and turn against those who would destroy us. All will be rewarded, they will fear our power.\r\n\r\nAnd for the love of god, put on some pants.\r\n\r\n\r\nSomeone's going to say tenticle porn, and I'm going to say..... mmmm.... no.\r\n \r\nI admire http://fealasy.deviantart.com 's work, in that it looks deceptivly simple for the message it has. I got a vision of Emily's arm, and while I don't think this was the setting it was supposed to be in (one can never be sure with inspiration), this puts me a lot closer to actual self expression than normal. \r\n\r\nSHES A CYLON O.O\r\n\r\nEmily belongs to me, as does the art.

aiden.jpg
Image: aiden.jpg   450x688 47397 bytes 2006.05.25

I promise you guys. The only way to make sure I do a request fast is to give me a FEMALE character. I don't really like this... and avoided working on it at every turn. \r\n\r\nThe best part, by a wide margin, is the scar on his face \r\n\r\nAiden belongs to Mercy Knight.\r\nArtwork me.

road.jpg
Image: road.jpg   450x370 81750 bytes 2006.03.29

Hmm. Winterwing and Emily meet.\r\n\r\nThis conversation goes something like:\r\n"Who did this to you?"\r\n"Well. He's about nine feet high and cranky."\r\n"*What*?"\r\n\r\nI'm not too worried about her. Most of it isn't hers. MWAHAHaaaaaa.\r\n\r\nLame background.\r\nWinterwing and Emily are me.

icenew.jpg
Image: icenew.jpg   450x700 61044 bytes 2006.03.16

You guys lucked out. I wrote a huge desc for this on DA XD\r\n\r\nAnyway, this is old, I just colored it today. The biggest problem I see is the angle of her beak in relation to her face. loloops l2draw\r\n\r\nIcewing is the unfortunate offspring of Emily and Winterwing, who somehow ends up in the primary care of Wildwing. You can tell by her sunny disposition.\r\n\r\nIcewing is Shannon Fowler.

real.jpg
Image: real.jpg   504x615 55301 bytes 2006.01.29

I've owed art to the FAX2 community for a while, so I nabbed a character who didn't get art last month from their secret-santa-ish person.\r\n\r\nHer creator's reference pictures seemed to give her a more humanoid face, so I went with that. I don't even know how many times I had to redraw this thing before I got it scanned in. Blaerg!\r\n\r\nThe best part was when I had to take a break to spend 2.5 hours on my drawing homework (ps, 6.5 hours to go).\r\n\r\nWillow Seifteye (the character used) is Squirrelygurl

Oh man. I broke some of my *own* rules in there. :/\r\n\r\nEmily Shannon Fowler.

octacali.jpg
Image: octacali.jpg   539x633 162252 bytes 2006.01.13

Somewhere in between 'Casino Royale' and 'You Only Live Twice', I most certainly went mad.\r\n\r\nAnyway, Cali's been giving my little Tauren warrior new toys, and in the same night reminded me of my tria markers :D And quite clearly earned (bribed?) this. This would have been so, so much simpler with a working skin tone. I don't lile parts of it... but really, there's too much ink used on it to not show it :P\r\n\r\nCalista is Michelle Latta.

8888.jpg
Image: 8888.jpg   350x619 50513 bytes 2005.12.20

This peice is an embodiment of the tenous grip that is my understanding of male anatomy.\r\n\r\nWolf anatomy too.\r\n\r\nAnd backgrounds.\r\n\r\nBut I've been sitting on this one for over a year now, so here it is.\r\n\r\nMoo. For the 8888th hit to my website.\r\n\r\nDevon is Casey Ugone

ravenfin.jpg

It's a crime against humanity, how much I had to tone down that shirt. The shirt was f'in awesome XD But then it turned out he commissioned me for the raven, not the shirt ;) This is probably the final version of it, I'm waitin to hear back from him. COMPESSION IS MY ENEMY. Nalfemi is M. Carpenter Edit: Sorry for re-up, requested change by commissioner.

9999.jpg
Image: 9999.jpg   492x773 93846 bytes 2005.11.30

For the 9999th hit to my website. Oh yeah. That thing. \r\n\r\nFelt a need to do something different from what I have been of late. You think that sword is confusing? Try coming up with a scabbard for it. Whats this thing with ducks and swords suddenly? A nice change anyway, I think.\r\n\r\nHas anyone found the 'stop sucking' button in Photoshop yet? I think it's next to the lens flare, but I'm not sure. It certainly would make things a lot easier :P\r\n\r\nRough is Antonia C. Schad

fatal.jpg
Image: fatal.jpg   591x691 50773 bytes 2005.11.22

Lately... I've been feeling like my art is a little formulaic. So after erasing and redrawing about 15 times today, I did an image search for 'Katana fight'. I'm not sure the ref I used had anything to do with real katana fights, as the two japanese men appeared to be using loaves of bread while wearing hoodies... or something similar.... really it looks to me a little like he's doing a ho-down. But eh, I like it, a nice change of pace. AND I've owed this to his owner for a long, long time. \r\n\r\nFatal is Carol Ann

ice.JPG
Image: ice.JPG   500x417 38446 bytes 2005.11.19

Just something fast for a change of pace, done in Painter while sacrificing a cheese to the art gods.\r\n\r\nI can't find any of my old stuff of Ice (CURSE YOU HD CRASH), just one from Michelle: http://darkelementals.com/guest/caliicerun.jpg\r\n\r\nI dunno. I feel like seperating her from her parents a great deal more. Icewing is me.

lucus.jpg
Image: lucus.jpg   400x700 43262 bytes 2005.11.13

A 'fast' drawing that took 5 hours. ahahaaa... *headdesk*\r\n\r\nI musta redrawn this TWELVE TIMES before I finally got a version I liked, and I pledge to you, one day, I shall learn to draw! But next month, and I'm pretty sure that, between finals, figure drawing, printmaking, NaNoWriMo, and commissions, I'm going to have myself a more than superficial hand injury soon (hurray).\r\n\r\nAnyway, something marked off my commissions list. Whoooo.... Hopefully I'll be forgiven for messing with his outfit ^^\r\n\r\nLucus is Lee Shapiro

It makes you think that perhaps there is some hope after all.

emily.jpg
Image: emily.jpg   400x696 51256 bytes 2005.10.30

I do one of these every two years. This kept me occupied while I waited for a reply on a sketch I sent to my commissioner. Emily's changed. \r\n\r\nShe isn't followed by a swarm of lens flares anymore. It's strange how I have more or less the same outfit/configuration, and yet the beginning and end (for now) are so different. \r\n\r\nOne day I'm going to figure out what that background is. It's starting to solidify o.o Emily is me

redgrey.jpg
Image: redgrey.jpg   500x733 46992 bytes 2005.10.08

Just something where myself and 5 other artists of the duck variety chose a color. Most everyone chose emotional qualities. Red being something of a lustful AND insane emotion, I'd rather just stick to the horrid color itself. This isn't the 'final' version, as that had to have a white background, btu I found that ruined a lot fo the contrast of saturation and non. So, grey it is.\r\n\r\nI don't much like red. Working with RL pigment, red is one of the weakest, and hardest for factories to fix correctly. Most reds I come accross are faded or icky. PLUS red is one of the first colors to fade from images, or painted rooms, etc. \r\n\r\nRed's all nice when you first look, but what primitive uncouthness lies benethe? \r\n\r\nThis looks an awful lot like Senotay. Senotay's me. lol.

bankrupt.JPG
Image: bankrupt.JPG   500x682 91637 bytes 2005.09.20

Like 'Fizz', this was sketched out during my time at job-of-hell and abandoned. Can you tell I felt a little..... icky?\r\n\r\nAnyway. There was text, once, but it's been far too long foor me to remember or care. This kinda turned into an expiriment with atmosphere and lighting, and I'm loving how resizeing/jpging ruinged it. Oh well.\r\n\r\nEmily is me.

foxnew.jpg
Image: foxnew.jpg   500x707 135838 bytes 2005.07.06

I lost the original PSD file AND drawing for http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/10732331/\r\n\r\nSo this is a redo. I'm happy that I did it over again, I'm liking this much better, but at the same time very angry, because my hand is in agony. Generic Foxx is me

Collaboration between myself and Michelle Latta . I'm liking this one a lot more than our previous ones... because I think the coloring style I chose better fits her linework than my usual 'OMG EVERY DETAIL POSSIBLE'-ishness.\r\n\r\nAnyway, her linework, my colors. Any stupid, squiggly lines in the background that don't fit in with the others are mine, because I'm a failure at inking. Whoot.\r\n\r\nIt's already been pointed out that's it looks a little dark, but all I can say it looks fine to me and next time YOU can color it :P I didn't want garish colors! I got over those when I turned 14 XD\r\n\r\n<3 Character and linework Michelle Latta. Color and stupidity me, just cause. That's right. I invented stupidity and none of you can trace it.
