Image: BikerBabe.jpg   1024x738 396203 bytes 2001.06.25

Over the years, I've seen a lot of pictures of chicks with bikes go by. I have to admit, I can't get worked up over motorcycles, not even Harleys (I know, blasphemy...) However THIS is one bike I'd love to have, ESPECIALLY with her sitting in back. Thanks to Zassa of FurryMuck for posing for the picture!

Image: Wyld_Hare_Carrots.jpg   497x768 210517 bytes 2001.04.27

My character, Wyld Hare, harvests her garden; probably the most "decently clothed" picture I've ever done of her....

Image: Imitation_Gargoyle.jpg   563x768 148201 bytes 2001.04.16

My winged Lion-morph hazards a trip to the big city and winds up hiding from the authorities. Sometimes its easiest to hide in plain sight, especially if the architecture supports gargoyles.....

Image: Barrett.JPG   541x768 163796 bytes 2001.03.23

A Husky-morph poses with her Barrett sniper rifle after achieving a "vehicular kill" at a range of almost a mile. Latest in the "girls with guns series"

Image: TwoRoundsLeft.jpg   551x768 124460 bytes 2001.02.13

yet another of those six sigma doodles; This one expressing the feeling that I'm under fire, with not a lot to shoot back with.....

Image: BhunniCornered.jpg   546x768 128325 bytes 2001.02.13

Another of those pictures from the six sigma course doodles; Hemmed in, cornered.... feelings like that were not unknown at that seminar.... Shame on me for taking it out on poor Bhunni.....

Image: BhunniRibbon.jpg   381x768 52594 bytes 2001.02.13

Bhunni tries to fashion something to wear from a single long piece of ribbon; not sure it came out QUITE as desribed to me, but.....

Image: 6sigma_Rt.jpg   499x775 145453 bytes 2001.01.10

"Six Sigma - Right" Before long it became painfully obvious they were actually gunning for me. Those golf balls could hurt!<br>\r\n\n

Image: AutoMag.jpg   547x768 118870 bytes 2000.12.31

Latest in my "Girls with Guns" series. The .44 caliber AutoMag was a '70's classic, but ill-fated. You had to hand-make your own ammunition from .308 rifle ammo cases. At least until High Standard bought the rights and convinced Federal to make the ammo.... but High Standard went bankrupt shortly thereafter. Here a Mouse Lady awakens in the middle of the night. Intruders? She reaches into her nightstand for her pistol... Pity the poor intruders!\n

Image: Taj_That_Way.jpg   556x768 165887 bytes 2000.12.29

"I think we go THAT way...." Taj, my fanfic character and wizard wanna-be in Anthony Pryor-Brown's "Thystra" swords and sorcery universe, with his "familiar", Bhunni, and their horse, try to figure which way the trail goes.\n

Image: xmas00.jpg   800x579 321238 bytes 2000.12.21

"Christmas, '00" My annual Christmas card, from an actual incident; my wife sent my son and I shopping for Christmas trees..... And yes, with a cathedral celing in the den, the tree is still so tall we can't put the Angel on top (Angel's lashed to the trunk below the top).\n

Image: Shu_Li_Corsair.JPG   523x768 202540 bytes 2000.12.15

"Shu Li; Corsair" Anthony Pryor-Brown's Tigress Lady, Shu Li, from the "Mark of the Zombie". OK, so I haven't actually read to a part where there's a fight on the ship, but I suspect its coming.\n

Image: a-wc.jpg   1024x675 353564 bytes 2000.12.10

"TCS Endeavor, from Echo Wing Lead; Its not a sensor ghost; I've got a visual, but I swear, I've never seen a ship that looks like THAT before!" A friend of mine is a devout Albedo fan, scouring the comic book shops while on business trips for the missed back issues. I like 'em too, but am adicted to the Wing Commander/Descent Freespace style space fighter/shoot-'em-up. Steve Gallacci's ships make sound engineering sense, but as we've discussed, they lace a certain "romantic appeal".... Here the pilot of a Wing Commander Universe Interceptor gets the first look at a visitor. Oh, and if you haven't ever read any of Steve's most excellent works, you should! \n

Image: M3Grant.JPG   993x768 270139 bytes 2000.11.22

A while back, Bill Kuelbs posted a picture called FoFL_3.jpg, in which he showed a brave British furr in the turret of his Grant Mk 1 light tank. LIGHT? If he's talking about the M3 Light tank, that was the Stuart (with a later M5 upgrade). If he's talking about the M3 Grant tank, that was a medium tank. From the picture, I suspect he meant the Stuart; both had the same 37mm turret, but the Grant had a machine gun turret on top of that (whereas his picture shows a pintle mount MG). Anyways, here's what an M3 Grant looks like. \n

Image: banth.jpg   990x768 214535 bytes 2000.11.03

"Banth" Ive seen a lot of 'taurs go by on the furry archives recently, and thought I ought to do something along those lines. In his "John Carter of Mars" series, Edgar Rice Burroughs described the Banth as the "Martian Lion." Big beast, with eight legs. Here's a morphic Banth (Banth'taur?) on the plains of Mars.\n

Image: M4Flame.jpg   984x768 192671 bytes 2000.10.06

"M4 Flame" Another one in response (grins) to Lienhard and Knechtshaft, although I do believe I'm cheating here; this is more probably a Korean war version. Its also one I couldn't identify in any of my reference works, but as I was working from a photograph, it MUST have been built somewhere. A Sherman Tank, with a flamethrower added to the right side of the turret (probably at a fixed angle, using a worn-out gun tube). As I've said before, back in those days, our folks used worn out, obsolete equipment; there were a few M-26 Pershings in Korea, but the bulk of the armored forces used Shermans left over from WW II. Have things gotten better? I dunno; hasn't the M1 Abrams been around since the 70's? Is the army running 20 year old tanks again?\n

Image: bhunnimad.jpg   600x768 186224 bytes 2000.09.29

Its not often that I get the supporting picture done before the story, but... Here's a character I'm trying to work into Taj's Saga; Meet Bhunni, the wizard-wanna-be's "familiar". Dunno what she's mad about (not until I write the story anyways).\n

Image: TechAlumni.jpg   594x768 170844 bytes 2000.09.15

In the West corner of the park, on Furrymuck, I frequently converse with a charming ringtail by the name of Samanthia; it came out recently that we both graduated from the same College, the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech). Admittedly, I was school of Chemical Engineering, class of '74, and she was school of Computer Science, class of '92 (masters in '94 from the same place; I'm impressed!). Still, we're both "Rambling Wrecks from Georgia Tech"!\n

Image: Surffur9.jpg   1024x751 274716 bytes 2000.09.08

Companion picture to the surfing otter I did previously; that one was of my daughter's boyfriend, the surfer; this one is for him, of "her". My Daughter has this thing for Leopards, but to the best of my knowledge, has never actually been ON a surfboard.....\n

Image: Beginner.jpg   1024x736 205719 bytes 2000.08.09

Taj, my fan-fiction character from Anthony Pryor-Brown's "Thystra" universe practices his swordsmanship. Is that "Fencing for Dummies" he's working from? Hard to say........ His story is on\n

Image: Surffur8.jpg   563x768 99558 bytes 2000.07.14

My younger daughter's boyfriend is a surfer; did this, of him, as an otter (yes, that's supposed to be an otter) for her.\n

Image: Missed.jpg   563x768 85697 bytes 2000.07.14

I spend too much time in airports; the sci-fi version of an RL event. The scanner, usually a pretty good machine, didn't like this one; hence considerable touchup with Photoshop...\n

Image: ThiefofBagdad.jpg   556x768 228782 bytes 2000.07.11

Done for the 2000 Anthrocon, on a theme of "Furries of Myth and Legend". As I understand it, it was actually used in the con book, too!\n

Image: winchester.JPG   545x768 148954 bytes 2000.06.30

Next in the "Girls with Guns" series. An Amerind Coyote scans the horizon; in her hand is the Military version of the classic '73 Winchester (long stock version).\n

Image: Li_up_against_the_wall.JPG   540x768 170774 bytes 2000.06.20

Li, the Katian babe from Anthony Pryor-Brown's "Wulf" stories, in a dramatic pose.\n

Image: cast_light.jpg   596x768 97957 bytes 2000.06.20

A young Wizard-wanna-be starts with the most basic of spells, casting light. From a series of fan-fiction stories I've started, set in Anthony Pryor-Brown's "Thystra" universe. If you're interested they can be found at\n

Image: strike.JPG   996x735 147425 bytes 2000.06.08

Sequel to "Dinner at 7 O'Clock... Low" and "stoop". Next one should be "horsefeathers".... (grins)\n
