Done as an art project for Illustration many years ago. My tribute in art to one of the most unbelievably talented men in the history of music.

There was no one like him, and there never will be again.

It's done on scraperboard, for those who haven't had the opportunity to use it, it's thick board with a thin coating of colour on the top, you use a very sharp tool to scratch through the colour into the white beneath. If you want to give it a go, I suggest framing board, the stuff they use to do those boarders when they frame stuff.

It has my old logo :3

Pombe 2

24" x 36"
Scratchboard and Ink

Here is the second installation of my cheetah series. This is the first

Pombe means "beer" in swahili and it's the name of the cheetah I took pics of at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. The color is a little richer with this one I think but the photo not as good. I sold this one before it finished so I was a little under the gun to get it done. Too much pressure man! I have a third in the series coming and it has two cheetahs snuggling, I'm really looking forward to that one.

As always your thoughts and suggestions are very welcome.

Scratchboard and Ink
11" x 14"

Here is a mountain lion from the EFBC in Rosamond, CA named Serrano.  I chose this picture not just for the cropped view point but the sharp distinction of light and shadow.  Cougars have always been a favorite of mine, their strong facial bone structure, liquid eyes, and remarkable coat - even without any markings just make them so beautiful.  I finally have some decent references and it'll be fun to do a few more.

If you'd like to see how I complete a colored scratchboard piece start to fish check out my first youtube video.

I just thought I would give a little advice.

Fursuit builders are popping up everywhere with all kinds of prices and products and want your business. Sadly many of these new builders are not what they promise to be. To avoid getting a product you are unhappy with or getting ripped off all together here are some tips.

MINORS: If you are looking to commission a minor keep in mind, a commission is a contract. Minors can not enter into a contract and thus by commissioning them your are handing them money and hoping they give you a product. If they do not there is nothing you can do about it because legally they never entered a contract.
A MINOR CAN SCREW YOU OVER See if there is any parental consent at all.

History: So you found someone with a price you like and you want to commission them. Look up their history, there are communities out there that are meant to keep track of flaky people or scams. artist beware is a great one they can be found here. [link]
If you find that they have no history at all look through their galleries for work they have done for other people, check to see if it is consistent and hell contact the owner if they are listed. Most people are happy to tell you about their experience.

Price: GOOD MATERIALS DO NOT = A GOOD SUIT. So many people will try and say that the price reflects the quality and materials used for their suits. This is not always true, anyone can buy high quality materials, if they can make it into something worth it is another matter. No matter how much those materials are worth, if the end product is not good then the end product is not worth the money spent on materials. The end product is what you want to look at, don't be suckered in by the materials.

Shopping around: So you don't have your heart set on any builder you just want a suit. This probably means you will have an easy time finding a builder. However it also means you are open to getting scammed. Get quotes and shop around. Look at the style and prices then move on. In that time you should be saving up and looking for something that fits you.

Saving: So you want a suit but can't afford one. Save your money, get a job etc. The world is not fair and no one should have to go down to your price level just because you can't afford something. You wouldn't want to be paid less for working hard just because someone can't pay you. You would move on and find someone who can.

Settling: This is a big one! So you need that fursuit NOW NOW NOW! You can't quite afford something nice so you are going to drop down to a new builder with little experience. BAD! Bad fury! I have met so many people who have done just that and gotten something they are ashamed to wear at a con once they saunter out in their new suit to see the dozens of quality suits around them. You get what you pay for, how about instead of buying now now now, you wait save your money and get something you will be happy with. Because in the end if you get something you are not happy with in time for that event you are wasting your money and you can only spend money once, there is no getting it back.

Try building it yourself: because quite frankly there are so many tutorials out there you will likely make something just as nice as that brand new builder you where looking at commissioning for a couple hundred bucks but making it at a much more affordable price. Most of these new builders are working from those tutorials anyway. If you are not confident enough to make it on your own but want to give it a shot anyway. head over to this community , post your work in progress shots and they will help you through the process. [link]


I hope this helps a few people. I understand the temptation to get a super cheap suit but keep in mind, the operative word there is CHEAP. So do your best to make sure you know exactly what you are getting into.

NEW BUILDERS ARE NOT BAD! They are often a great way to get a new suit at a cheap price. However I do feel the need to warn people how to spot a bad apple in the bunch.

This is a 11x14 scratchboard of Patsy who passed away on 10/13/2009 .

I used fiberglass brush and a hobby knife to scratch it. Then I colored it with ampersand inks.
