There seems to be a certain tension in the air lately, and since I am also dealing with the Sturgis Bike Rally, in which about 600,000+ sweaty, hairy, dirty bikers get together and invade the Black Hills...well...I just needed to sketch some snarly goodness. Always the best therapy!
This guy seems to be awfully concerned about something. Could it be silver bullets? What could make a brute like this skittish?

A piece I did for the Native American Portfolio. Not to often you get to see a Wolverine. This particular piece took me days to finish because of all the little detail. I really wanted to capture the fierceness of the wolverine so I made him into a tough warrior ready for anything. Done with mechanical pencils on 11x14 Bristol.

I should really be doing other things, like commissions and replying to comments and notes, but I just really felt like coloring this.. After a long day, I felt like relaxing and catching up on Fullmetal Alchemist - Brotherhood, and just sketching a little.. the sketching ended up being this drawing.
man, I'm kinda stressed these days.. I've got so much to do! and I'm supposed to make a comic on minimum 4 pages or maximum 15 pages before this week is over.. And I'm so screwed because I still haven't figured out how to start the damn comic, or which of the two comic ideas I have to work on for that matter... *headdesk* I feel like giving up, but I can't..
so, well, this drawing was just something to help me relax, as some drawings can be very relaxing to work on..
my character, Zachary. Old, old character of mine whom I find quite interesting if I may say so..
babble babble... xD sorry..

I drew this for my own amusement, and to practice anatomy some more. So, he's very out of character here, I know, but it was just for fun. Nothing serious about this picture. I could've drawn Jason or any of Jason's musical friends instead, but as usual I ended up drawing Spike...
sorry for keeping the image so small.. I could upload in a higher resolution, but then you'd just notice my flaws... I'm kinda happy with how this turned out, but only when I look at it from a good distance XD lol
thanks to everyone who watched me draw this on Livestream

loooong overdue commission for Anbessa, which I upgraded from a graphite piece to full color for free for the stupidly long wait. I like this character better in color anyway. ^^ More anthro pirates please!

I've been looking forward to this commission for a while! By-the-hour piece for Raptorbane of her moth character glomping Skeptic's moth character. Ack gettoff! XD All that fuzz was certainly fun to paint.
This was a commissioned piece and quite a challenge for me. The bright stripes on dark fur plus the lighting of the fire. Took me quite a while to figure out how to paint it, although it doesn't look like it. I dig warm/cold color contrasts.
The final version of my submission to this year's RARE 2012 Anthro Calendar. The theme is mythological anthros, and I got the Peryton.
"The peryton is an animal combining the physical features of a stag and a bird. (...) Often it is portrayed as a winged deer, sometimes including tail feathers. A peryton's feathers were either green or light blue in color. Its skin cannot be pierced by any known weapon, and the creatures themselves are invulnerable and possibly immortal, or at least very long-lived."
You can pre-order the calendar until September 30th for a price of 20$ (+8$ international shipping). For ordering and more information visit our official website: [link]
