I drew this image with the first version in mind. At the time, Natani wasn't a part of the cast, so I really wanted to create a new version with her included, since a gender bending seemed very appropriate for her character. A lot of people have commented that Natani looks a lot like her brother here, which seems appropriate. As siblings, a male Natani would naturally look quite a lot like Zen.
One thing some people mentioned about the previous gender bender image was that Flora didn't look all that much like a guy. I tried my best this time around to make her look masculine this time around. The muzzle might have been a bit overboard, but I still like how he came out, and he seems to like the results as well. As for Trace, being the human, I had to use some creativity to cover everything up. I do like how the long blue hair looks on him.
Keith seems to have changed the least out of all of them. It really didn't take a lot to make him look like the opposite gender. Some eye-lashes, a couple of fleshy bits and bam! Girl Keith. He might not be so happy about this change, but Natani sure is! And I hope you guys are too.
Looks like Kat got into the make-up, and decided to try out some nail polish... with mixed results. Still, she seems happy with her accomplishment. Personally, I don't normally consider any kind of make-up on an anthro character to look very good, but... well, this is for the cute effect more than anything else. Though you can't see it, the polish matches her paw color.
Here's the holiday pic from the comic, moved here since it's been replaced on the homepage. Hm... I feel like I should say something about it, but it's just the usual pin-up holiday art. To be honest, I really wanted to draw something else besides the regular fan-service, but unfortunately I just couldn't think of anything to draw. It came out alright in the end, though, I think.
Hope you liked it, in any case, and had a happy Christmas, New Years, or holiday season in general - whichever is your personal preference! Now to herald in the year of the Rabbit, the zodiac sign I happen to have been born under.
I made this because I hadn't drawn in a long time and needed something new to put up as an incentive. The background was completely last minute - I had finished an image of Flora lying down and then realized I had no settings. So I pulled 'beach' out of a hat and painted it. Other than that, there isn't much to say about this... oh, except I did enjoy experimenting with the hair a bit.
Oh man! This drawing was originally an unfinished sketch I drew sometime around 2004. I recently found it amongst a pile of random drawings and thought I might as well finish it. I didn't change anything significantly, save for the background, so you'll probably notice that the style is pretty different from how I usually draw. The hair, the body proportions, etc are all from my old style, though it's cleaned up quite a bit with the new line art. The stripes are new, but everything else I kept as much the same as possible.
The screens in the background were all added at the last minute, just so that there wasn't quite so much white space. The charts and graphs are all random and have absolutely no secret meanings... OR DO THEY?
Oops, looks like someone forgot to tell Natani how Renamon dresses.
Heh, yeah yeah, Renamon is the biggest cliché ever. I know. I couldn't help myself, though. She's the only character I could think of that had a costume without anything covering the torso, so the joke would work. The white on her fur is paint, and part of the costume.
This was a series of comics I drew quite a while ago, but only recently colored and finished the last two pages. Don't ask me where the original idea came from! I am sure I couldn't tell you. But I will respond to a common question I've gotten about this:
Why is Flora's hair short? No reason. I just wanted to draw it differently. It's not an indication of how I plan to make it or how it will eventually look. I just wanted to do a one-off with a different haircut for once.
I hope you enjoy the read. I enjoyed drawing them! Even though it was rather awkward having to look up references for those tentacles... >_> It's dangerous to go googling about tentacles, just trust me on this one.
Here is the flip side of the coin, with Laura and Keith.
I wanted to give a little more face-time with Laura while I have the chance. I know that there is a small but vocal fanbase for the shy fox girl that hasn't been detoured by recent events in the comic, and I figured I might as well be fair and give them something too.
This was an image I have had in my head for a long time. I've tried drawing it on several occasions, but it never came out quite right. The difficulty was pulling off the pose and prospective. The sketch for this particular piece was the first I was finally half-way satisfied with, and chose to finish.
I employed a few new tricks when coloring this. A triadic color scheme - green, purple, and orange - was used for the bed sheets, curtains, and fur. The pattern on the sheets and pillow cases were designed to enforce the prospective. And the lighting was something I experimented extensively on. In the end, I put a lot of effort into this art. Hopefully, it was worth it, if only for the learning experience. You can hit the download for a larger version, if you'd like.
