Gift art for Spirit Wolf. Original line art and border were all inked with Microns, all color done with colored pencils. I'm pleased with the majority of this piece, though there are details I see that need tweaking.\r\n\r\nSpirit Wolf is (c) herself, art is (c) J.S. Lee

jestel1.jpg
Image: jestel1.jpg   550x454 40190 bytes 2003.12.25

My entry for the December 2003 WAG Challenge. This month was to combine 6 animals of the admin's choosing into one beast. They wanted as smooth a combination as possible. The six animals I was given was the Shortfin Mako, Elk, Eared Grebe, Loggerhead Musk Turtle, Tarantula and Jaguar. It definately was a challenge to fit that many creatures into one thing.\r\n\r\nMicron pens on hotpress sketch paper.\r\n\r\nJestel is (c) me.

eye1.jpg
Image: eye1.jpg   550x510 40303 bytes 2003.11.22

A really quick work for the November WAG challenge. The theme this month was 'The eye is the window to the soul'. I feel this is really cliche', and I've seen about a dozen other human eyes with varied pupils, but this was the best I could come up with. The iris and pupil is based off the Whitetip Reef Shark (Triaenodon obesus), and I used a photo of my own eye as a reference.\r\n\r\nGraphite (mechanical pencil) on hotpress bristol board.\r\n\r\nArt is (c) me.

keeperoftomes1.jpg
Image: keeperoftomes1.jpg   520x750 123008 bytes 2003.11.21

I broke my 600 rule with this, so it's 750 on the long dimension, a bit larger, but I couldn't stand to shrink it down any farther for the detail.\r\n\r\nThis was a piece that tortured me for almost 3 weeks. I've been planning, sketching and inking for that amount of time. It's a study in anatomy, lighting, mood and setting, and I wanted to use a very rare species to be anthro'd, a Nurse Shark (Ginglymostoma cirratum).\r\n\r\n.005 Micron pens and Sharpie on hot-press sketchpaper.\r\n\r\nThe Keeper of the Tomes is (c) me.

dangerous_waters1.jpg

Yes, I left this file big because I couldn't squish it any more without totally killing the detail....\r\n\r\nThis is my entry for the October 2003 WAG (Were Artists Guild) Challenge. This month was Horror or Fear, so I came up with this. It took me a lot longer in planning, sketching and inking than any of my other pieces. It's also larger, being almost 9x12, instead of your standard letter sized paper. It's done almost exclusively in .005 Micron Pen, using a fine Sharpie to fill in the insides of the border chevrons. It's done on hot-press bristol board.\r\nArt (c) me.

takkar1.jpg
Image: takkar1.jpg   463x550 35275 bytes 2003.09.29

This critter is called a Pheasant Takkar, and is what my Bird Dogs were engineered to hunt. They're only about a foot and a quarter tall, and feed on grassland seeds and berries. Micron pens on hotpress sketch paper.\r\nTakkars are (c) me.

steeljaw1c.jpg
Image: steeljaw1c.jpg   412x550 49882 bytes 2003.07.17

The colored version of the previous picture. As I had stated, it got finished in colored pencil. I'm fairly proud of this one, the wrinkles in the clothing came out how I wanted them to. It also helped, using a photo as a reference.\r\nSteelJaw is (c) me.

steeljaw1.jpg
Image: steeljaw1.jpg   400x550 38646 bytes 2003.07.17

Call this a 'self portrait'. It's the black and white copy of what will be my DeviantArt ID when it's done. I worked of of a (hideous) RL photo of myself. This will be colored in colored pencils when complete.\r\nSteelJaw is (c) me.

megumi1.jpg
Image: megumi1.jpg   550x385 36589 bytes 2003.04.25

This is Megumi, an original creation based on the TMNT universe. She has a weapon known as a kusari-gama, which I thought was most interesting. I haven't worked in that style since I was 12, so I had a lot of research to do before attempting the piece. A gift to her player, for the awsome RP on TMNT MUSH.\r\nMegumi is (c) her player, art is (c) me.

lilly1.jpg
Image: lilly1.jpg   550x362 31621 bytes 2003.04.19

A portrait of Lilly, a canine-fox mix that resides on SPR MUCK. She requested a drawing from me, and it was much different from what I'm used to doing so I took the challenge. I wanted her to look sexy and definately feminine, which is something that I don't often accomplish in my works. I also wanted to make her good looking, while keeping with realistic proportions. I think I may have pulled it off with this one.\r\nLilly is (c) her player, art (c) me.

boomer1detail.jpg
Image: boomer1detail.jpg   423x478 49212 bytes 2003.04.15

This is a detail of the colored Boomer pic. I wanted to show some of the fur texture I worked into the piece that you can't see in the shrunk down version.\r\nBoomer is (c) his player, art (c) me.

boomer1c.jpg
Image: boomer1c.jpg   400x600 44485 bytes 2003.04.12

I actually colored something. The same day I drew it. Amazing, I know. This is again Boomer, colored in Photoshop. I used KPT and Eye Candy filters for the background.\r\nBoomer is (c) his player, art (c) me.

boomer1.jpg
Image: boomer1.jpg   356x550 34016 bytes 2003.04.11

Boomer (AKA Roo-07) is a mutant kangaroo from the Australian outback. He was originally a military project, but luckily escaped the fate of his peers. You can find this character on TMNT MUSH. I plan on digitally coloring the piece and adding a stylized background. Should look sharp. Micron pens in sketchbook.\r\nBoomer is (c) his player, art (c) me.

raksha1.jpg
Image: raksha1.jpg   402x550 74731 bytes 2003.01.29

I finally finished my half of the art trade with R. J. Boettcher(Raksha). I appologize for it being so late, and I hope you enjoy it!\r\nMicron pens on hot-press sketchpaper. It took me about 10 hours to complete, start to finish.\r\nArt is (c) me, Raksha the Pardolupen is (c) herself.

DEMON1c.jpg
Image: DEMON1c.jpg   428x550 54352 bytes 2002.12.23

The colored (and slightly altered) version of the Consessions Demon picture done for my Sis, Midnite of SPR. The background elements were erased/replaced for a specialized framing job that I might upload pics of at a later date.\r\nThe demon is (c) Midnite of SPR, the art is (c) me.

sykes1.jpg
Image: sykes1.jpg   418x550 39342 bytes 2002.11.14

This is Jake Sykes, a bullshark morph with a bad attitude. He was tailored for a brand new MUCK that was only a month old, but when I signed on today to see how things were going I found that the wizzes had completely changed the theme. Alas, I'll never get a chance to play this char on that MUCK, at least.\r\nI altered my usual style slightly in this drawing, putting clothing on a shark morph and giving him five fingers.\r\nJake Sykes is (c) me.

blackshark4.jpg
Image: blackshark4.jpg   550x300 47868 bytes 2002.08.18

I redesigned and colored the Black Shark Logo. While essentially it's still the same I like the Raven-esque wings a lot better than the draconic wings of the old design. I hope to make this into a patch for the back of a jacket.\r\nThe Black Shark and logo are (c) me.

bullshark1.jpg
Image: bullshark1.jpg   396x600 93195 bytes 2002.08.13

This is one of my better peices, in my opinion. I started it while on a trip to Kentucky, and finished it just before arriving home. I'm especially pleased with the fine stippling, which, unfortunately, didn't transfer well to the web.\r\nThis is a proud Bull Shark warrior, having returned from his nightly hunt. I would say he was successful in the endevour.\r\nThe bull shark is (c) me.
