"The Sovereign Ruler of the Sea of Trees, Lord of Autumn Leaves, and friend of Magpies."
FINALLY. THIS IS DONE.
Over a year and a half in the making. Wow. This was started summer of 2012, while I was on Holiday in Normandy. I'm fascinated by birds, especially Corvids, and Europe is full of Magpies. Magpies, Magpies everywhere! I love those little demons, they're such a pain in the ass, but they're so beautiful! I started the sketch in June, inked the main figure (sans wings) within a day, coloured him (again, without wings) within the week, and then....he sat in my portfolio, sad and unfinished, for a year and a half. It was just last night that around nine o'clock, I pulled him out, stared at him, and said "I am going to finish you". And then I did.
Also, I'm a horrible sucker for sticking wings on anything non-avian, and this is proof enough. This is the first time I've attempted a REAL background in -years-, but watercolours are awesome.
I'm going to be putting him up for auction in the art show at Further Confusion 2014 in a week and a half! He has been sealed, framed and looks beautiful, I kind of don't want to let him go.

Alright! This is my work for AnthroNOTFurry creature feature I've never tried this before but since one of the species was the Serval (and I love Servals) here it is! ...made with ink, watercolor and a bit of acrylic. Oh, and this time I borrowed my mother's camera to take the picture! Looks much better ^^
As always if you have some suggestion or critiques to help me it would be great (since someone asked me, that weapon is a Kpinga, an African throwing knife)
My submission to the RARE 2013 Anthro calendar: [link] . If you'd like a copy of the calendar, you can still get the early bird price if you order at [link] .
The theme for 2013 is "world cultures" - my pic shows a trio of fun-loving geckoes doing such absurd things as surfing off the coast of Hawaii while trying to eat fire... as you do. Or commandeering a boat that is in fact a coconut... again, as you do.
Interestingly, all 7 species of Hawaii's geckoes are introduced species (apparently).
They are so rare, 30-35 exist today. This Leopard wonders if she will ever meet a mate while the sun sets on her species, possibly forever.
This was a very ambitious piece for me, and I am not all that happy with how it turned out. This is a watercolor base, with colored pencil, white acrylic ink and black ink pen for detail. I wanted to capture a bright winter sun setting. It kinda worked. I think I made it all too pink. I am also trying to eliminate lines from my final work, but it is a hard thing because contrast and definition is so key. The anatomy is a little weird. I tried the winter coat out on this Amur leopard. They are more creamy in the winter time.
Watercolor, acrylic ink, black ink pen and colored pencil on cardstock. 8.5" by 11"

I'm really happy with this one ^ ^ It came out almost exactly the way I wanted it to. The original idea was to have her on some fancy couch but I've already done a few pictures like that so I changed my mind and I gave it an Asian like scenery. She was drawn out to be sitting on a chair so thats why her positioning on the rocks looks a little... odd o.o I still love it though :3
Finally, I finished coloring my avatar self, Kenley Chial, in her anthro form. For those of you who don't know, Kenley is a chocolate berkshire rat with white boots. She doesn't normally wear clothing in her anthro form and has a slight masculine build to her. The setting is nothing special, just a quiet area of my imagination that I happen to frequent sometimes. I love moss covered rocks and waterfalls. What better place is there for Kenley to hang out?
I'm extremely happy with this piece and it took me forever to finish for a variety of reasons. I don't think I've ever done a more complete background in my life. The scan isn't great, but the colors look fanastic in real life. I'm so happy! Hope you guys enjoy it!
Alright, you guys were right.
I had 23 people comment on the WIP, which is an amazingly high number for me, lately I'm used to being happy with 4 or 5 people commenting. So, I figured that many people telling me to finish, it had to be better than I though, and I'll admit, I'm pretty chuffed, it's the best I've done in a long while.
Thanks guys <3
That being said, comments are extra appreciated on this one, especially considering this is the first piece I've finished since July!
