Haven't done one of these in ages. But it IS a thong. Trust me; I was there...

How many Tigresses do you know that like to read? I know at least one....

A request, for VanAnkat (who wrote stories in Todd Sutherland's "Waterwings" franchise universe). The .gif is meant to be inserted into an e-mail to make it "personalized stationary" for correspondence with furries of a like mind. Beyond that, its not a bad picture of VanAnkat.... Hope he gets some use out of it.

Not sure just where she is, but she's being her usual teasing self. Hmmm, probably the first time I've done a G rated picture of her....

This is one of those things that just wouldn't quit; started as a simple head sketch; liked the way that came out; so then the torso was added... and what to do with the hands? Then, colored on the PDA, and a background added. Long way from that simple head sketch.

Zassa, of Furrymuck (and Kittiara's stories) being her usual teasing self. Thought the "come hither" look caught her just right, but its obvious I'm still working on "red"... Used with permission.

A lovely young otter lass hides in the grass, waiting for trouble to pass... Or maybe she's after new alligator shoes; she DOES have that knife!\r\n\r\nActually sold this one at auction on Furbid! Imagine that!

This was just a quick test to try out the seven Prismacolor markers I bought. All I could afford. Feedback requested (firstname.lastname@example.org); should I invest in a wider selection of colors, or fall back to the colored pencils? Or, (grins) should I give it up completely?

"Lion on the Watch" For a while I had a painting of a (non-morphic) lion on a ridge, watching the plains below, as wallpaper on my computer. I forget the painter's name, but it apparently was a moderately famous painting. Here's my version. M4 Sherman, early production, I think.<br>

"Lions and Tigers and Bears Oh One" The crowd roars and the next contestants look up in nervous anticipation. Did the Emperor signal thumbs up, or down? And then the Coluseum stage manager is calling for the next two teams. Time to go..... Started while watching Gladiator and months in the making. My second attempt using the water color colored pencils.

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

An M48 in 'Nam. I know that look all too well; the TC and the loader are thinking; "We just ran over something...." Lets face it, visibility from those things sucked. The driver probably never saw whatever it was he ran over. Hope it wasn't anything important. Oh, by the way, this was from a very interesting photo. The TC's cupola indicates A3 or earlier, but the fume extractor 1/3 down the barrel suggests a retrofitted 105 mm, and along with the two antennas, that suggests something like an A5. Wish I could see the side, to count the track return rollers; that'd give a clue.

"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

This one should really be called "Green"... An infantry unit provides cover during an advance, backed by an M5 Stuart light tank. As the average American half track could be perforated by German machine gun bullets, I SUPPOSE this was a benefit, but with the 37mm gun, the Stuart was woefully outgunned by almost any German vehicle. Curiously enough, the Stuart, and its successor, the M24 Chaffee, were made by Cadillac.

In the early 70's, it looked as if the tank's day was over. Hollow charge weapons and Anti-Tank Guided Missiles could penetrate any armor. The M60A2, sometimes known as the "Starship" for its advanced technology tried to take advantage of some of that. The main weapon was a gun that could fire 152mm shells OR launch an ATGM. However, the massive recoil from the large gun almost always screwed up the electronics for the missile, and it was taken out of service. Then Chobham armor came along and everything changed.

The M8 armored car wasn't a match for anything else in the war, with the possible exception of a Kubelwagen... Mostly it was used for convoy escort, but occasionally they were used for the purpose they were designed for; scouting. Here a scout group comes out of the woods, and into the open, where the M8 might use its speed to aid in its defense (although I doubt the dismounted scouts would appreciate that).
