Image: Aquamarine_Spy.jpg   666x882 121320 bytes 2003.07.02

One of the Jewel Vixens' most well rounded characters (get your mind out of the gutter!), Aquamarine is the team's technology geek. If you ever need anyone who can beat a computer at chess, or have a nuclear warhead that needs disarming, or even want somebody to fix the timer on your VCR, this one's got you covered. Better versed in computers and gadgets than people, Aquamarine is shy and demure, yet, amazingly, has the fabulous, impossible dimensions required for all Jewel Vixens and is equipped with nothing but the best futuristic gadgetry available (courtesy of F.U.T.U.R.E.- the mysterious benevolent organization for which they work)

A request piece from Kitsune Renamon for his fursona, Alexander Bushtail. Still trying to get my pen-hand back, so forgive some of the errors here.

Image: EmeraldSpy.jpg   820x768 165905 bytes 2003.05.04

This is Emerald, of Nick Hardin's "Jewel Vixens". She's the team's psychological warfare expert... a polite term for a very, VERY naughty vixen. Having been passed between prison after prison for repeated brawls and riots, she was offered pardon under the condition that she apply her special skills as a superspy. In a world full of belligerent, overeducated henchmen, Emerald is the perfect tool to extract intelligence information by means of slapping people silly to get it. It's fortunate that she's on the side of good... \r\n\r\nRight?

You finally get the time in your busy world-saving schedule to take a relaxing trip to the beach, and, like clockwork, some moron sends his goons to try and assassinate you!\r\nAs a Jewel Vixen (all vixens owned and operated by Nick Hardin), life can get quite frustrating when, while spending valuable vacation time, the grim reality of dumb henchmen comes to plague you. Luckily, as Ruby, the largest Jewel Vixen (in more ways than one) is demonstrating, dealing with badguys in good form, flair, and humor can liven those harsh realities.\r\n\r\n

Another image pulled from the artistic ass of Steve Swanson... enjoy!\r\n\r\nEvery villain needs legions of specified henchmen/women to employ... whether you don't want to be hassled by the neighbors for 'borrowing' their grill for permanent use in your evil lair, or you need a non-legal solution to copyright infringement, or if you just need to protect yourself from those pesky superspies.\r\n\r\nThe case is no different with S.P.E.C.T.R.U.M., the first line of villainy in Nick Hardin's "Jewel Vixens", and the world's first color coordinated evil empire! Spies attempting to infiltrate their organization have reputedly laughed to death. The reason, so far, is unclear... \r\n

Image: Sapphire-_Swimsuit.jpg   800x600 162211 bytes 2003.03.20

The first and foremost member of Nick Hardin's "Jewel Vixens", a raucous ride of hilarity and parody taking place in the anthropomorphic 70's, Sapphire heads up a team of elite superspy/supermodel vixens whose secret exploits primarily involve saving the world from injustice, grave peril, and those who want to dominate it for whatever reason. Sapphire, of the Jewel Vixens. She's the resident arctic fox vixen, though not akin to a certain Artica Lagopus (Copyright Shawntae Howard), for she is a leader figure, a seasoned veteran of the spy trade, and a world famous swimsuit model. She also loves a wide variety of sports ranging from Tennis to Table Tennis, and has a crazed passion for cotton candy.

Colored version of an earlier picture- Certainly adds a little extra something!\r\n\r\n

Image: TerrikHangin'Out.jpg   1000x1205 152692 bytes 2003.03.16

Ael's character, Terrik Arrin. This isn't a new picture, but one I thought I uploaded a while back. Sort of a character update.

Image: Solid_Vulp.jpg   716x510 66485 bytes 2003.03.05

Three-hour project! Thanks, Brad, for letting me do this... and, in case there's any trouble about it, Metal Gear Solid, the obvious inspiration behind the story, is copyright Konami.

Image: Pissed!.jpg   900x1118 261642 bytes 2003.02.19

Picture of Aelius Tennefurr, Nick Hardin's fursona and character in the GSIF. He's a heavy-hitter with electrokinesis, but also a loving mate and (maybe soon) father. He carries a fighting staff to channel electricity much like a Tesla beam, but isn't above using his two nine-millimeter pistols (though, in all honesty, he's a terrible shot!).

Image: Maniac.jpg   672x1014 133259 bytes 2003.02.07

Revamped picture of "Maniac", my first mail-in commission. I hope it's satisfactory, dude! :)

Image: Fenicia,_Color.jpg   800x1050 232767 bytes 2003.02.05

Mmmmm...\r\n\r\nI am doubly pleased with this picture. I really wish Nova were my character now, though. Ah, well.

Image: Aelius_Sketches,_2k2.jpg   1000x790 146127 bytes 2003.01.26

Nick Hardin's character/fursona, Aelius, in a series of detailed scribblings. Features his weapons of choice, and a shot of his mug...\r\n\r\nCopyright Nick Hardin, no duh

Image: Stalking.jpg   800x1044 228393 bytes 2003.01.26

Another favor for Aelius... I guess I've got a real weakness for his characters. This is Kanta, more along a spy/operative type, but also a mother and a wife. This naturally causes some personal trouble...\r\n\r\nin any case, Kanta is (c) Nick Hardin

Image: Morning_Routine.jpg   900x1126 183549 bytes 2003.01.26

Aerie Mulkahey again, less nude than before. She's taller than I would have liked, and a bit over-accented, but it's a nice step along the neverending path to good art, I'll admit.

Image: Sleeping_In-Pencil.jpg   800x767 117487 bytes 2003.01.26

Joshua "The Samurai" Knode's Angela Aeon, a commando with a gentle, laid back attitude- when she's off the job. It was a rather satisfying Mustie study, and he enjoyed it, so it was pretty gratifying for all... all except the alarm clock :)

Image: Solid_Vulp__Color.jpg   838x850 116301 bytes 2002.10.23

No, the resemblance is not merely coincidental. This is a request from a colleague at Club Extinctioners of his fursona, Solid Vulp, who is basically an anthropomorphic supersoldier along a similar vein as the hit videogame series. I guess I should kudo MGS, to be safe... \r\n\r\nSolid Vulp (C) Brad Clark \r\nMetal Gear Solid and associated characters (C) Konami \r\n

Image: StarfoxLC.jpg   750x970 138396 bytes 2002.10.20

Treading on a lot of occupied territory here, but boy, was it fun! I always saw a resemblance between Scarlet Starfox and Lara Croft, and since It's halloween, I figured I'd dress Her up a bit. Which 'her' is subject to speculation, cause they make a pretty cool match!\r\n\r\nScarlet Ann Starfox (c) Shawntae Howard\r\nLara Croft & "Tomb Raider" (c) Core Design/Eidos Interactive\r\n(I hate legalese...)

Image: Raising_Flags-_Color.jpg   455x843 126344 bytes 2002.10.11

Aerie Mulkahey, GSIF commando, displaying her native Jadelandian flag in her own particular idiom...

Image: Uniform.jpg   800x1042 152928 bytes 2002.10.11

Arkady "Spooky" Volkov of Extinctioners Season II, with an outlined basic uniform.

Image: tracercolor.jpg   609x817 127405 bytes 2002.08.19

The character illustration for Rebecca "Tracer" Archer, the team sniper and hard-to-get hottie. A friend of mine noted all sorts and mannerisms of mistakes I'd made in this picture, but I still admit that I like it. Live and learn, I guess...\r\n\r\nAs for the character, she doesn't like being stolen, and she probably doesn't like you. Sorry, but that's just how she is! Tracer (c) me.

Image: Emi_park.jpg   866x970 88447 bytes 2002.08.07

Emi Lockhart... Declun's steady pre-mate. Her face didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but the rest of her looks cute enough.

Image: Sisruan_Infantryfur.JPG   750x1136 64912 bytes 2002.08.07

this was fun! Essentially an equivalent to a Russian soldier (apparently switching letters around in names is the 'in' thing in the Extinctioners world) in the Season II plot. This is just your average garden variety badguy, too... kinda justifies a bit 'o good weaponry, doesn't it?

Image: timocharsheet.jpg   981x810 161405 bytes 2002.08.07

I kept the character sheets clean cause all sorts of people see this... besides, how well do you think I'd do? I rest my case...

Image: Declun_Charsheet.jpg   982x769 161697 bytes 2002.08.07

Declun's Character Sheet, done in a similar fashion to Shawntae's... so I'm an admirer, can ya blame me?

Image: Tragedy_and_hope.jpg   504x714 152431 bytes 2002.08.07

Scene from Extinctioners Season II- Dec after a rough day on the job... yes, it's kinda hastily put together, but that aside, I think it's alright.

Image: CTFP4a.jpg   1225x1598 551592 bytes 2002.04.20

This just keeps getting less and less coherent :p

Image: Tracer_At_The_Beach.jpg   558x746 168012 bytes 2002.04.20

Edited pic, now MUCH better than the last version- she's now better muscled, has thicker arms, more realistic hands, and better eyes.

Image: Ashley.jpg   425x749 154673 bytes 2002.04.20

The first female char I've drawn for S2 without screwing up. She's a shy mouse and a technological genius, but apart from that she is also a strong combatant and can assume a bioelectrical form to travel through stuff. Hardwire (C) Heckfire Lee

Image: CTFP3a.jpg   1242x1617 539167 bytes 2002.02.20

After a month of drawing everything BUT Catch The Fox, you may see some improvement.
