I owed a friend five penguin drawings for her senior thesis presentation. She wanted "a good penguin in a white hat", a "bad penguin in a black hat", a"government penguin", a "dumb penguin", and a "geek penguin". The species are respectively king penguin, emperor penguin, gentoo penguin, African penguin, and rockhopper penguin. The colored versions are in scraps as I didn't have time to do a good job on them, and much prefer the inks. I tend not to draw penguins, but it was fun drawing penguins that went outside the generic "cute" or "cute and evil" categories.
On his birthday, Lunarkeys gets a surprise visit from Arrow, Nyomi, and Shiro, bringing gifts and cake for their favorite Luminari! But things might end up getting just a bit out of hand...
------------ Anyone who hangs around with me long knows that I and , are inseparably close friends (and he is free to noogie me into submission if I speak falsehood). We really can't imagine how our lives would've turned out different without our friendship.
As it stands, back in 2007, I started getting him something for his hatchday every year and delivering it to him...and always in a way that he didn't expect it. Because I like being sneaky, darnit!
So after a bit of a brilliant idea, and his comments, this idea stuck in my head and I had it drawn by Shiro for him. Originally it was just supposed to be Arrow and Keys, but all three of us decided to get in on it for the lulz. Due to rough circumstances it was a bit of a rush job for Shiro to complete, and for that I apologize again.
Then I waited for Keys to go to class for the day, then logged onto his computer and put this as the desktop for when he got home. Given we live hundreds of miles apart, this was a bit tricky; I had him install some remote desktop software for me to get in(yes, I removed it when I was done). So he came home from work and this was sitting on his desktop, looking all awesome. And everyone was made happy and it was cool and everything.
Also, the first person to compare a Luminari to a Vaporeon in the comments will be, in a show of irony, vaporized. They're not the same, I've been there for the entire development process. They look a bit similar, but for that matter, so does every single Star Trek alien, or Bigfoot and Chewbacca, or any other number of things that occurred.

"Setting: Large pond, trees in the background, ducks and ducklings in and around the pond. Setup: My character sitting on the ground, my friend's character sitting in my lap playing/feeding the ducks and ducklings.
My friend I consider my Fennec brother, and he's always talking about the ducks at the pond." ---------------------------------------------------
This was my first commission, and so I thank Lows very much for it of course. I know that he wanted it sooner than later, but I really wanted to give him a nice peice that I spent time on.. so I really hope that it paid off.. Umm.. some of the duck poses are refrenced from google, just to toss it out there. And... yeahh, there is an actual background in this picture. haha bet you werent expecting that ;D (He will get the original size without watermark of course.) Kay Im too tired to really write anything else. XD g'night all.

Character sheet commission for of his golden eagle based character, Thenyr.
I was given the basic body shape of the character, but for the most part I got artistic freedom with his coloring/markings. I kinda like what I came up with... I'm tempted to use something similar for a character of my own. ^^
