Get to know me meme

I was tagged by my bro Kylogram! How funnnn! I don’t usually do these but I’m going to humor myself this time around.

This and other posts like it are tagged #meme for those of you who don’t really like this texty stuff. I promise, art will be in the next post. ;) And if you guys have extra questions I’d be happy to add ‘em in here post-asking!

WIP and finished token for the StarCityGames.com judge program… finished awhile ago! I’m surprised I had this in my drafts folder and never actually posted it.


Ganked a pose from SenshiStock for the Spartan hanging off the rope… because rope is hard. Also used a few screenshots from Harakiri to get the main guy’s stoic expression down.

You guys might recognize some of the thumbnails and a preview from a post awhile back… here’s the finished piece! :D

Done for the charity artbook Memorieal which recently gave us the go-ahead to upload the illustrations we did earlier this year. As a kid I had a flying/gliding bear species based off this stuffed animal (I named them “Pinky Bears” since I was an original precious snowflake). They were the mortal enemies of eagles, and they primarily ate fish — which they stored underground in burrows. Since that’s what bears do.

Is this one about to grab one or shake its fin? WE MAY NEVER KNOW.

StarCityGames.com has me drawing a lot of things I’m not used to… which is definitely not a bad thing! Ice is especially tricky — they took forever because I hate colorpicking off of photos. The eyedropper tool makes things so easy, but then I wouldn’t learn as much.

The ice studies were pretty much as they appeared in the original photograph, and the other studies were more of a Find The Easiest Way To Render This Out Without Killing Myself.

Token and works in progress of Invitational winner Derrick Sheets!

This was finished awhile ago, but I remember much fun was had while painting the background swans. :D

Fun Easter egg: one of the background swans is wearing the Shiratori Shrine necklace from Garzey’s Wing. I highly recommend that 3-episode series to anyone wanting to watch a hilariously bad dubbed anime. Trust me, it’s worth it.

Did a fun little illustration for “Furries Forever” awhile ago… it’s been okayed to post it recently, so I am! :D 

Haha, yesss… you can totally see my little rabbit guy on the cover! Isn’t he cute!?

I also wrote a tutorial for the book, as well as several other artists! If you’re interested in that sort of thing, you should definitely check it out… we all worked hard on it! :D

Furries Forever <—- Newest one, aww yeah!

Draw More Furries <—- I also have a piece in this one! 

Draw Furries <—- The original!

And of course, check out Lindsay Cibos’ gallery… she has a ton of great stuff! Cute polar bears everywhereeee!

Commissioned art for Furoticon's newest set, Di'Ahla's Awakening!

Although this image is G-rated, the subject matter of the card game is adult — only click on the link if you’re of the proper age. ;)  I had a ton of fun with the two cards I got to paint~ They ended up being similar in color scheme in value, but they’re both Lithrinn-related so perhaps that’s a forgivable oversight. :D
