Well, it's finally starting to ACT like spring here.  '<img'>

Savannah Magick

Not as detailed as I would liked... but I like this guy, so I'm uploading him anyways. Maybe it's because I like the coloring, or maybe it's because I have a thing for dreadlocks, I dunno. Anyways, he dosen't have a name yet, but I'll do another pict of him when he gets a name.


Maggie May

My end of an art trade with Maggie May.

I saw the first one on DA but I really like the second!
"Beyond the darkness is a door to the light,
A door to your soul...

When darkness falls
Allow the light of your heart to guide you

Hope burns brighter than any star
And will shine long after the last star dies"

Great stuff. '<img'> I also like Maggie's picture a lot, especially how you shaded the ribcage and the waist.

Cassie the Rock And Roll Vixen

Paid commission done for Earl Bacon (Foxonian).  I believe it's my best coloring job to date.  I pretty much had to pull out my full arsenal of tools and tricks to complete it.  '<img'>

Even with my equine bias, I'd say the picture of Cassie is the best of the bunch. Great coloring job indeed! I noticed that you used a heavy black for the gradients and cast shadows in this pic, and in Maggie's. I think this worked better with the dark stage than the sunny outdoor setting.

(And is it me, or is Kairerien's pic a thumbnail?)

Yeah, your right, it was a thumbnail.  It's fixed now.

I've been coloring a lot of old piccies.

Poppa Dragon

Unlike a lot of people, I don't see dragons as monsters.  In the words of someone on DA,

Quote
An another proof that what the Mankind calls "monsters" and "anything that they don't consider human" are not what they're said.
I even think if a dragon would find a baby, whatever species he is, he would adopt it regardless of the differences


Deer-Taur Family

I dunno, I guess I was just in the mood to make cute things.


Regal Gryphon

I finally did a real media piece.  Yay!  Prismacolors on black artgrain paper.

Oh, and a few commissions.  These were t-shirt designs done for my parents since their going on the Tail of the Dragon Tour.

It's the same pict, just different colors.

I think they are ALL fantastic! If I had to choose one as a favorite I would have to say at this moment it would be the 'daddy dragon' since WS's sister just had a baby a few weeks ago and his brother-in-law is always holding the baby and they fall asleep together. Very fatherly and attached to the little miracle! (smiles)

Heh, I thought it looked like him too... without the arched nose anyways.  :P  I guess I've gotten so used to drawing him that every bobcat I draw ends up looking a bit like him.  '<img'>

Anyways, I like how the wings too.  Especially the silver lines.  The customer seemed to be pleased as well.  '<img'>

Alexander - Guitar Design

A quickie that I did for two reasons:

1.  Designing one of Alex's guitars.
2.  Practicing musicians in actions.

I may do more picts of Alex later.  He's fun to draw, and has a certain "bad boy" attitude that mose of my other characters seem to lack.


Gryphon-Taur Mage

Mio Ravenhart conjures up a cloud of holy magick.  It's been a long time since I've drawn my gryphon-taur characters.  I should draw more - I find that I can make their bodies very expressive.

Those are all very well done, Ulario! I like them all though I have to say I like the facial expression on 'Alex' the best. (smiles) He does remind me of a good/bad boy! (LOL)

If you're concentrating on practicing (guitar) musicians, here's a little tip: the left hand should be pushing down the strings on the fretboard with the tips of the fingers. (If you want I can make a little sketch of this). Right now, it looks like Cassie and Alex are holding the guitar, instead of playing it.

My mate was complaining about something about the fret board as well... I guess that shows how musically inclined I am.  I should learn how to play, so I'll get a better understanding on how it works.

There's no need for sketches, I went out and bought a few guitar magazines.

Blue Phoenix Tee-Shirt

Blue Phoenix T--Shirt done for my boyfriend's b-day.  (John, if you're looking at this, I'm going to kill you... and no, your not getting it until June!'<img'>

Anyways, acryllic paints and textile medium.  Not too shabby considering that it's been over two years since I've even touched acryllics.  It was kinda fun to make, I may have to run a t-shirt auction on furbid.

Class Project - Creed Tribute

My final project for my Intermediate Drawing class. I got an A on it... which is near impossible for that class, so I'm happy.

Anyways, prismacolors on watercolor paper (which is why it is so textured). It's actually pretty big (can't remember the exact measurements), so I had to take this picture with my digital camera. Some of the detail was lost with the camera, however. '<img'>

I may have to add a new section for class projects to my website.  '<img'>
