I painted this tiger for Furry Weekend Atlanta's charity auction to benefit the Conservator's Center in NC. They were kind enough to supply me with some photos, and this tiger is based off a few of them. If I have time this spring, I hope to paint another one of their many animals for the auction as well! :]
The original painting will be sold at FWA's charity auction this March! All proceeds of the auction benefit the Conservator's Center!
*This is a gorgeous African Wild Dog (Lycaon pictus) taken at Lincoln Park Zoo! Literally she just stood there, 7 feet away, looking so pretty!
*Apparently the African Wild Dogs at Lincoln Park Zoo were a new addition starting May 30th 2012! There were 4 that were moved into the exhibit and they are all sisters (Sahara, Lulu, Ola and Ono)! They were born on November 25, 2010, at Brookfield Zoo, where they were part of a litter of 10 pups!
*Honestly, it took me like 45 minutes to come up with the title
I am home again after a week and some days absence, and a few thousand miles more on the odometer. I spent some time on top of a mountain, some time in a valley, and most of the time painting and sketching. I did a few acrylic paintings on wooden boards salvaged from a dumpster. This one is based on a few photos I took while learning to drive a dogsled and wrangle dogs a couple years ago.
Anyhow, I am back again and have a few things in mind to work on for AnthroCon, some emails to get back to, a couple loose ends to tie up, and the time (and stable Internet) to start digging into a few of those Hogwarts badges. Later today, I'll be posting the official Across Thin Ice release announcement! Stay tuned!
In a nutshell, the card game features 50+ pieces of new artwork we've done, as well as new artwork from Chromamancer, and images from Across Thin Ice. Each deck has 130 cards, plus custom Nordguard dice, and the standard set will be about $12. It will be available later this summer from Sofawolf Press!
Here is the artwork for the "Shortcut" event card we did for the Nordguard Card Game. (More information on the game itself can be found here!)
The original is small, about 3×4, in watercolor and acrylic. If you want, you can see a sped-up recording of painting this, over on LiveStream!
And, to note: Wow, the first round of sales for the Deluxe edition of the card game sold out quickly! If you missed your chance at getting one, there's still a few options, including another batch (the last time the Deluxe edition will be for sale online) on June 23rd at 10PM. Here's some more information that.
