This took long enough and I apologize, but I really took my time on this...I wanted her markings and armor to be as close to Amocin's as well as I could do. Amocin is a longtime friend of mine, we've watched each other's art evolve so much over the years. And I wanted my half of a trade with her to be special. And here it is.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

Cheer up, Tacoma. You'll get better.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

Commission for ~Anika-Candeh~\r\n\r\nShe wanted a background that was kinda flamey, but as it turns out every shade of orange remaps...and what's fire without the color orange? Dithering red and yellow looked like absolute shit so I somehow came up with candles on egyptian-style pots. Seemed fitting for the best traditional feline I've been able to draw so far o.o

I love this guy. Decided not to finish coloring it 'cause I have issues with shades of black, so the original is pretty much destroyed now. But he was good lineart...\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

I draw my fursona a lot, but I never have enough interesting situations to put her in. For nearly six months I wasn't drawing at all. She looks sleepy here, almost like she'd just woken up. So I think it's fitting. She might be also sad that I made her right hand a little too big. NO SHE IS NOT EMO you little shits.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

something old and stupid...still thought I should share...I think I was in my freshman year and wanted to make a logo for all my disturbing little journals but Tacoma didn't turn out so well...so I ripped her out of the page! hehehe. Atleast I could draw a backpack...

Finished trade half for Amo. I swear, my scanner did this picture no justice. Except the silver-sharpie stars do seem to glow on my monitor o.O\r\n\r\nHope she likes, anyhow.\r\n\r\nArlene & Malcolm Their players. Image Tacoma TigressFire.

A picture for Ash 'cause it's her birthday! I used prisma pencils, watercolors and rendering in PhotoSuite3 for this to turn out so good. Ash is such a cutie.

Ash the lioness, first true profile pic...more to come.

This is the second scan I've done of this picture. Thankfully it looks descent now. Just one little problem, and I might go back and work on it later...the brightness!! That sort of yellow is blinding! She's actually gold, but I was drunk while coloring this so I couldn't have expected too much of myself at the time anyway.

It's a good thing I scanned this before runing it with color.

A re-upload 'cause my scanner sucks. This looks much nicer without the smart-blur effect.

An old old cleaned up sketch of Luna and I gazing sweetly into each other's eyes. I chose not to finish this piece because I'm not satisfied with the anatomy or pose in general. Our wings change...a lot.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

Baby Tacoma meets Lunati for the first time and the tiny cub is a bit shocked to find another creature smaller than her. I really enjoyed working on this picture. Mix of Prismacolor verithins and Crayola pencils.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

A very bad coyote shows off his meaty, decapitated squirrel. So who's hungry?\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

Tacoma's Bear Affair

Tacoma and a long-time friend share a somewhat intimate encounter. Let's just call him "The Bear" since I can't disclose his name. I don't want him to get in any trouble with his partner. He's not a furry, and was never too keen about having any sort of fursona but agreed that a black bear might suit his personality and appearance best. *shrug* Believe me, it's no one anyone here knows. I definitely took my time on this. Prismacolor Verithins and Micron Pens of various sizes on regular ol' print paper.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma Tigressfire.

Tacoma - Before the War

Let me first say this was sketched four years ago and I have just finished coloring it five minutes ago. I worked on this piece on and off in that time frame. It's called "Before the War".. a contemplative Tacoma enjoys one last night in the Twilight Hollows before her journey out on the war on the Zengre. Long story behind that one, but for now, Tacoma rests her mind in a place of peace.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.\r\n

Something cute that proves that there just can't be enough of Icarus and Tacoma.\r\n\r\nIcarus is a mystery character. I can't remember how this guy started, but he was named after my computer (anyone figure out what his necklace pendant is)? And the first drawing of him ever was this enormous painting on my bedroom wall. Didn't draw much of him until this past month when I figured out he was the only other "child" of Skylion's. But this does not make him Tacoma's sibling - they share no blood. Only a long history and a very sweet friendship.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.

Could have done a lot better, even for it being 5am (I stay up all night/morning working on this stuff). But again, the wings made the picture. I love how the feathers layer over each other and will be sticking with this wing style for a long time. I'm disappointed with Icarus' fur texture and could have made his coat appear lighter and smoother but...I'm having trouble with light texturing. I need to shade it enough to show the fur texture properly but not so much that it darkens the coat. Ugh. And I like Tacoma as she is. It's hard to not want to give her wings in feral form but...she's still young here.\r\n\r\nImage Tacoma TigressFire.
