C_AlefFoxy.jpg
Image: C_AlefFoxy.jpg   318x592 57391 bytes 1999.09.07

Here's an older pic of a semi-realistic Alef. This was done years ago, back whilst I was in high school (senior year, I believe). Alef himself was colored with markers, whilst the background was done (and very crappily, may I note) in colored pencils. I've certainly come a long way since this pic.\r\n \r\nAleffe of Midnight is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

C_Crady.jpg
Image: C_Crady.jpg   484x593 86269 bytes 1999.09.07

This is my one-and-only attempt to draw Crady CrystalFox for a friend. For only a text description to work with he was rather pleased with the results, and so was I. I think I may have put a little too much detail into the muscle definition, though (especially for a furry person), but it did help me with anatomy a bit. =^.^=\r\n \r\nCrady CrystalFox is © CrystalFox (http://hem2.passagen.se/ratman82/).\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi.

This is an attempt to put clothing on the previous pic of Crady. As you can see, leather is VERY difficult to replicate when you don't have a clue about what you're doing (and perhaps even if you do). The texture on the jeans was really good on the original image format, but turned out really crappy in this JPEG version. Compression good, quality bad. =X.x=\r\n \r\nCrady CrystalFox is © CrystalFox (http://hem2.passagen.se/ratman82/).\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

C_Fenris-Starr.jpg

"Hey, Starr. Over there. I think I see... No, nevermind," Fenris grumbles audibly.\r\n"Oh, Fen," Starr smiles and chuckles as she turns her head to look in another direction.\r\nLost, Fenris and Starr find themselves marooned together in some unknown new world. Together they fight to survive and to locate their loved-ones, where ever they may be. It is a struggle against time and the unknown, where uncertainty stalks like a stealthy predator. Love drives them on through adversity, but will love be enough to stand the test of time and hardships ahead...\r\n\r\nThis is a compilation pic of Flux Gryphon's coyote, Fenris of Sunset, and my own favorite vixen, StarrLight of Midnight. This has a kinda funky perspective, as Fenris is supposed to be standing a little ways behind Starr. Too bad there's nothing to judge the distance with other than the size of the characters. Perhaps I should have had Starr's ear overlap Fenris? *shrugs* Oh well. This is probably my best digital coloring job to date.\r\n\r\nFenris of Sunset is © Flux Gryphon (http://velar.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Flux-Gryphon/)\r\nStarrLight of Midnight and image is © Vulpes Mundi.

C_Foxy-Jake.jpg
Image: C_Foxy-Jake.jpg   791x785 194092 bytes 1999.12.26

Lazy days. Lay-z-daze. Foxy and Jake are takin' it easy, lounging around at the park. Something seems to have caught their attention, though. What could it be? A golden retriever playing frizbee® with its pet human? A hep-cat drivin' by in a kickin' car? Or perhaps it's simply an approaching ice cream vendor? Well, whatever it is, it's sure fascinating. =^,^=\r\n\r\nFoxelia Vixen and Jake Fliers are © Patrick Little (http://velar.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Patrick-Little/)\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi.

C_GatomonKawaii.jpg
Image: C_GatomonKawaii.jpg   600x780 185849 bytes 2000.02.18

Sitting all cheerful and kawaii, staring at you with intent eyes, is Gatomon, the eighth digi-destined Digimon. Though seemingly a bit out of character, we can't put aside the fact that she is a feline, and felines are known to change temperament faster than the flit of a hummingbird's wing. Let's just hope this cute mode she presents here won't change the moment Kari decides to share time with her. Or maybe we should, considering the annoyance Kari represents. *grins mischievously*\r\n \r\nThis is the colored version of my very first pic of a Digimon. Gatomon is soooo kyoote. I hope that you enjoy viewing the image as much as I enjoyed creating it. =^,^=\r\n\r\nGatoman, Kari, and Digimon are © Saban.\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

CP_AmaniAme.jpg
Image: CP_AmaniAme.jpg   350x629 56823 bytes 1999.09.07

This is the gray wolf Amani Amé, sister to Amarok of Cleariver. Religious in nature, she is occasionally referred to as the "Rainwolf." Her very existence is threatened by an incurable illness. Even with God's strength at her side, can she survive the toils of the mortal coil?\r\n \r\nAmani Amé of Cleariver is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

CP_DamonnStance.jpg
Image: CP_DamonnStance.jpg   414x600 76340 bytes 1999.09.07

Damonn's existence, even his race, is shrouded in mystery and secrecy. Though he'll probably remind a number of people of something out of Disney's Gargoyles, I assure you he has never had anything to do with them. In fact, he was originally created back in 1988, around half a decade prior to when the aforementioned show was spawned. Seems to me that a certain company was looking over my shoulder. *snorts derisively*\r\n\r\nDamonn DeNon Noraan is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

I_AlefPoints.gif

Aleffe, also known as the "fox of true heart," has got something on his mind and he's trying to make a point. One can hear his words, "Anytime, anywhere, I'll be right there. By God, I swear, I'm magic, I'm there." It's meant as a statement of devotion towards those he cares deeply for, particularly his wife StarrLight, children Dawn and Dusk, and closest friends Fenris and Jasper of Sunset. He's definately the kind of person you want by your side when trouble comes knocking at your door.\r\n\r\nThis is the inked finalé version (finally) of "Aleffe Points it Out." Years in the making, I just, for some unknown reason, kept putting this image aside. I wish I could explain it, but there's no rhyme or reason to it. And to put it into perspective, this is the only picture I've drawn that has ever depicted Aleffe correctly, visually speaking.\r\n \r\nAleffe of Midnight is © Vulpes Mundi.

I_Brian-Dog.gif
Image: I_Brian-Dog.gif   700x800 62800 bytes 2000.09.01

Now this a curiosity. Okay, let me get to the long and short of it. The tall one on the left is Brian from the Fox show "the Family Guy." The short one on the right is the dog from the long missed ABC show "the Family Dog." Now consider for a moment, if you will, the strong possiblility that these two are related - maybe even separated at birth. Bear with me a moment, I've got evidence. *offers proof to the court*\r\n\r\nExhibit A: the names of the shows they're from have only a one word difference.\r\nExhibit B: they both have the exact same color patterns (soft white with no distinguishing markings).\r\nExhibit C: they both have oddly shaped black noses.\r\nExhibit D: they both have bulbish eyes with bead-like irises.\r\nExhibit E: they both wear a red collar.\r\nExhibit F: they are both quite intelligent.\r\nExhibit G: they both experience wondrous dreams of often great proportions.\r\nExhibit H: they both have extremely strange families and neighbors.\r\n\r\nYou be the judge. Oh and don't mind me. I'm just mental from a recent artistic drought that has hopefully been quenched by this image. =^,^= \r\n \r\nCharacters are © their respective owners.\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi.

I_DawnCajole.gif
Image: I_DawnCajole.gif   425x765 53534 bytes 2000.04.03

Ah, the frivolity of youth. What's more amuzing than watching a youngster frollick around without a care in the world? Take Dawn here, for example. She's showing the world what happens to a child after too many hours of playing Pokémon Stadium. As you can see, she's dancing around, pointing in various directions, while shouting a mesmerizingly cute "CLEFAIRY!!! CLEFAIRY!!!" For those in the know, she's imitating her favorite mini-game: "Clefairy Says." Ain't she just sooooo kyoote? \r\n\r\nAfter what seemed an eternity, I finally sat myself down and drew a complete picture of Dawn, daughter to Alef & Starr. Of course I still have to do her twin brother, Dusk. I'll get around to that sooner or later, I assure you. Maybe. Um, I hope... =^.^=;;;\r\n\r\nDawn Tiadé of Midnight is © Vulpes Mundi.

This is a profile image of Flux Gryphon's character, Fenris. He is the `loving` husband to Jasper of Sunset. He tends to be fairly rational compared to his spouse, and yet he also tends to speak without thinking first. His mouth has the nasty habit of getting him (and his companions) in deeper than expected. Still, he's one of those folks that is worth more as an ally than an enemy. =^,~=\r\n\r\nFenris of Sunset is © Flux Gryphon (http://velar.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Flux-Gryphon/)\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi.

I_FoxyLounge.gif
Image: I_FoxyLounge.gif   955x689 61427 bytes 1999.12.01

Lounging in the park, leaning and twisting her body, Foxy scans around looking for her lover, Jake. He's late again, but she's not worried. She knows him well, and figures he'll pop up any moment now with an ice cream cone for them to share. Mmm. Doesn't that sound good?\r\n\r\nThis is my first official pic-swap, and I hope I've honored Patrick Little by drawing his character, Foxy. This is the inked version. I surprised even myself on this one, as I drew it with no references for the pose. =^,~=\r\n\r\nFoxelia Vixen is © Patrick Little (http://velar.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Patrick-Little/).\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi.

I_GatomonKawaii.gif

Here's a very kyoote inked rendition of Gatomon from Digimon. This is my very first pic of a Digimon (who would've thought I'd be drawing Digimon... go fig). For a first try, I think this came out quite well. Gatomon is soooo kyoote. Thankfully her attitude isn't usually a match for her appearance (at least so far).\r\n\r\nGatoman and Digimon are © Saban.\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

I_JakeKneel.gif
Image: I_JakeKneel.gif   497x700 45275 bytes 1999.12.11

Kneeling close to the ground, Jake almost appears as a sculpture. His attention is affixed upon something in the distance. Odds are that he's staring at his lover, Foxy, as she steadily approaches. He certainly knows what he likes, and most definately likes what he sees.\r\n\r\nJake Fliers is © Patrick Little (http://velar.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Patrick-Little/).\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi.

<div align=justify>Standing before you, in all her cute, devilish innocence, is KaOss.&nbsp; One look at her adorable face and you have to wonder to yourself, <i>"Okay, what kinda trouble has she caused this time?"</i>&nbsp; I guess only she knows, but I don't think she's gonna fess-up anytime soon.&nbsp; Perhaps this has something to do with why she has her hands behind her back and her ears <i>radaring</i> around?&nbsp; Your guess is as good as mine.</div><br>\r\n<div align=justify>Congratulations go out to Istanbul for sending in the selected quote, <i>"I'm too cute to get caught."</i>&nbsp; Thanks to everyone who participated.</div><br>\r\nKaOss Felnamia &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

<div align=justify>This is KaOss Felnamia, a youthful cat with a mischievous temperament.&nbsp; Sure she looks cute, but beneath that adorable exterior is more trouble than ten house cats can typically conjure up.&nbsp; Of course when faced with the results she'll deny everything.&nbsp; What else can you expect from a youthful cat?&nbsp; <i>Meow.</i></div><br>\r\nKaOss Felnamia &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

<div align=justify>A more recent portrait of Kysma's face.&nbsp; Ain't she kyoote?&nbsp; (about as kyoote as scheming devils can be *grins*)&nbsp; As far as characterization goes, Kysma is a pet to Aleffe and StarrLight of Midnight.&nbsp; Though in truth she's more like their third child.&nbsp; =^,^=</div><br>\r\nKysmaryn &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

MidnightFoxes.jpg
Image: MidnightFoxes.jpg   510x226 43091 bytes 1999.09.07

<div align=justify>These are the Midnight Foxes, Starlight and Twilight.&nbsp; This is the outcome of the semi-realistic versions of Alef and Starr, which became two completely individual characters that were, for the most part, real foxes.&nbsp; Unfortunately I never really rolled with the idea and it just fizzled out in the end.</div><br>\r\nStarlight and Twilight &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

MoonBad.gif
Image: MoonBad.gif   246x436 17174 bytes 1999.09.07

<div align=justify>Here's the ever-dark MoonLight of ClearSky, better known as BlackFox.&nbsp; As his name implies, he is a jet black furred fox with a personality to match.&nbsp; In most cases he is considered the very opposite of Aleffe, though deep down there is a troubling past that drives him to the brink of insanity.&nbsp; Will he ever be able to come to grips with himself, or is he doomed to death by his own dispair?</div><br>\r\nMoonLight of Clear Sky &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

This is a pencil scan of the updated (second edition - circa 1997) version of "Aleffe Points it Out." This version came along around a year after the original version was concocted (which was late 1996). If I ever find a copy of the original version, I'll be sure and post that as well. Unfortunately, the update was drawn over the original (as was the finalé version drawn over the update).\r\n \r\nAleffe of Midnight is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

P_AlefScholar.gif
Image: P_AlefScholar.gif   408x640 23871 bytes 1999.09.07

Here's Alef turned scholar fox. Though a rough sketch (for me, anyway), there was a lot of detail put into this pic. The pic itself was referenced from the cover of an Aesop's Fables book illustrated by Michael Hague. I did make a few subtle differences, though, such as Alef's markings and changes in the pose.\r\n \r\nAleffe of Midnight is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

This is Uforia, more commonly known as Euf. Though she isn't my character, I thought it would be interesting to take a shot at drawing her since I had visions dancing around in my head. Outgrown overalls, bushy hair, comic facial expression. I tried to make her look as goofy as she was personality wise. How'd I do? =^,^=\r\n\r\nUforia of Sunset is © Flux Gryphon (http://velar.ctrl-c.liu.se/vcl/Artists/Flux-Gryphon/)\r\nImage is © Vulpes Mundi. Please do not alter or distribute.

<div align=justify>A first attempt to draw Star Dragon.&nbsp; Originally she is a member of the Great Dragon Council of the ETL.&nbsp; Not much is known about her, currently.&nbsp; Special thanks go to Lady White Dragon for sparking the ol' imagination.&nbsp; =^,^=</div><br>\r\nStar Dragon &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

StarrBesque.gif
Image: StarrBesque.gif   242x598 16874 bytes 1999.09.07

<div align=justify>This pic is one of the <i>Starr Styles</i> series of clothing designs for Starr.&nbsp; In this case we see her in a stereotypical Arabic design.&nbsp; Strapless bikini top, small vest, and billowing pants.&nbsp; I should've darkened the linework for the clothing, though.&nbsp; Maybe Later.</div><br>\r\nStarrLight of Midnight &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

StarrChanSD.jpg
Image: StarrChanSD.jpg   210x297 21702 bytes 1999.11.12

<div align=justify>Here is Starr in a cutesy, semi-superdeformed appearance.&nbsp; Don't know if it's just me but this pic reminds me of Eric Schwartz's style.&nbsp; I didn't have any references from him nearby, though.&nbsp; Just a coincidence, I suppose.</div><br>\r\nStarrLight of Midnight &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

StarrFoxyc.gif
Image: StarrFoxyc.gif   357x540 10772 bytes 1999.09.07

<div align=justify>This pic was referenced from Disney's Vixey from <i>the Fox and the Hound.</i>&nbsp; Not the cleanest linework nor too pretty effects, but it gets the point accross.&nbsp; I can definately say that Starr and my artwork in general has progressed through the years into so much more than this.&nbsp; And I've only just begun.</div><br>\r\nStarrLight of Midnight &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

StarrFoxyc2.gif
Image: StarrFoxyc2.gif   303x583 9540 bytes 1999.09.07

<div align=justify>Like the previous pic, this was also referenced from Vixey.&nbsp; Unfortunately I don't have possession of the original pic, so I had to add an all new background.&nbsp; I purposely made it nothing spectacular, but fitting to Starr (to not outdo current stuff).&nbsp; I'll just say the original background was a sad early attempt at colored pencils.&nbsp; Look to Alef Foxy for insight, that is a companion piece that went along with the original of this one.</div><br>\r\nStarrLight of Midnight &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n

StarrMLTS.jpg
Image: StarrMLTS.jpg   316x362 33614 bytes 1999.11.12

<div align=justify>Another incarnation of Starr (does the madness ever cease?).&nbsp; This image seems to be influenced by the styles of Michele Light and Terrie Smith in some way or another.&nbsp; Whether or not that's flattering is in the eye of the beholder.</div><br>\r\nStarrLight of Midnight &copy; Vulpes Mundi.\n
