Trade Finished

Here is the finished ACEO fro my trade with the wonderful I kept it subtle and simple (and the original looks better than the scan). Hope she likes it! "Neko" 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 Acrylic, Micron marker, Pro White on Bristol. Picture 7.


I am doing an ACEO trade with an amazing artist on Fur Affinity. She has a female cat persona and these are the two sketches I did to get started. I am not sure witch one she will like best...not sure which one I like best either. "Niko" 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 pencil sketch.

Nothing Like Overdoing this very nice sketch turned into a much more complex picture. I asked the original artist and the creator of the character for permission to color the sketch and then since the character is black and white, I had to add a colorful background... Well, I feel like I went overboard but I also feel like it works! Original sketch and character copyright and . "Krauti Mercedes by the Koi Pond", 8 1/2 x 11 Acrylic, Micron marker, Pro White and Prisma Colors on print.  Prints available. Picture 6.

Rattie Angel Finished

Well, there were a few changes to the original idea and here is what the client ended up with. She asked to change the hair to red and picked the misty blue background (I gave her a couple choices). "Rattie Angel Warrior", 8 1/2 x 11, Acrylic and Pro White on Canson board. Prints available. Picture 5.
(This is a companion to "Animal Weretiger")

Rattie Angel WIP 4

Nothing is done yet, but as you can see, color is now involved. Also, I got the client to let me do metal armor and not black leather!

Rattie Angel Update

I was going to wait to finish laying in the wings before posting again, but decided to just go ahead and do it now. The real "fun" will be when I start to do color since the client wants a black rat, with black hair and black wings in black armor! I will be a chalenge to make it work but I hope I can!

Fun Coloring

I am now on a new art site called Nabyn and one of the other artists did a great black and white picture and gave me permission to color it. It is stronger in real life, but you get the feel from this scan. "Children of Loki", 8 1/2 x 11, Acrylic, Prisma Colors and Pro White on print.

Rattie Angel WIP

This is a commission for a friend. It is a warrior black rat angel! This is 8 1/2 x 11 pencil on Canson board.
The second step in the commission, this has been refined and more detailed from the first sketch. The face is already done in a light Acrylic line. I should mention that this will be a companion piece to "Animal Weretiger".

Elric, Bringer of Storms Finished

Well, this was inspired by a style and is not really a good version of that style. But I like the finished picture well enough. "Elric, Bringer of Storms", 11 x 13, Acrylic, Micron marker, Copic marker, Pro White on Bristol. Original and prints for sale. Picture 4.

A Little Head

Now get your minds out of the gutter...and someones lap! This is something I may have posted before (can't remember) but since I just posted it in Fur Affinity, I thought I would post it here as well. Old work from 5 or 6 years ago. This is not a great picture of it, mostly because it is a photo not a scan and it was coated with a clear coat to protect it. This looks very carved in real life but flattens out in the photo. Don't remember the exact size, 12 or 14 diameter I think. Acrylic on wood.

Still Working

I had hoped to be done with this before now, but so it goes sometimes. If I can figure out what color to do the cloak, I can finish it! Here is another bad scan. the missing corners and not lined up areas are because it is to large to scan as one piece and I don't want to spend time making the unfinished scan perfect. So here is the much further along scan of "Elric, Bringer of Storms" , 11x 13.

New Deal

OK, I am trying something new. My muse gets one picture for each one I have to do. I will do one piece of art for myself for each commission. So here is the work in progress for my none commission picture. It is a bad scan done in 2 pieces an not lined up in every spot, but since it will be fully colored and is just a WIP, I decided to post it anyway.
