Hehe, get it? Warbird? She's a bird and a warrior? Hehe. *ruffles feathers*
Whee, just showing off my gryphonness, Isra! Nobody remembers, but I had mentioned that I would shade and fancy up that front-facing head-shot of her on her ref...and here it is!
This was dang fun to do - I love this gal, she's so boss. Yeah-yeah, I'd drawn it before, but it felt good to finish it up for display. I had fun adding the little fur details as well as the blue on the side of her face, because...I have a tendency to do that, on 'fiery' pieces, if anyone's noticed. I love red and blue, hehe.
I love doing busts like this and with this shading. Would anyone be interested in me opening up commissions of these?
Isra is part booted eagle and part sand cat, both Israeli species. She's a warrior and lives in Gaza. More info on her ref sheet: twilightsaint.deviantart.com/a…
Did you just say my TAIL is too FAT?! C'MERE AND SAY THAT TO MY FACE YOU LITTLE--
Cell shaded icon comish for MavWolf of FA of his sona about ready to ruin your day! >:0
If that face doesn't say 'I'm gonna rip your throat out!' then I don't know what does, hehe! Mav wanted me to really capture the raw rage and power of his sona, and it was a blast to work on such an intense expression!
I also decided it was time that I start drawing the teeth on my snarly characters rather than a block of white and a little squiggle. XD Used references of wolf teeth and also just draconic teeth since he's a dragon mix. I think I rendered them pretty well, especially those lips! Feel free to critique those!
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.
Here is the card and artwork for the Room Party, FurCon Expansion Card: Popufur!
What is this even about?? Well, it's a card game about convention Room Parties. You build the best, and sabotage the rest! Funded by KickStarter last autumn, it's official, soon to be released, and awesome! It's snarky, super easy to play, and addictively replay-able.
The Core Deck, with artwork by Mandi Tremblay has 160 cards, while the FurCon Expansion has 55 cards, with artwork by myself.There will be a VERY limited number of decks for sale at FurtherConfusion! Come play with 'em over at my dealer's table or the Sofawolf Press table!
Later this month/February, official online sales will start!
Collaberation between myself and ! She made the gorgeous lineart, and I put my acrylics to them on illustration board. =3 I found out she was going to All Fur Fun, and decided to approach her for a collaberation. Since I admire her art quite a bit, I was THRILLED when she said yes. I've never done a collaberation like this before, so this was quite a challenge, but also really enjoyable.
Kacey and I are both selling 8 1/2" X 11" prints of this piece, and the original will be for sale at AFF.
[EDIT} Oh wow, thank you so much for the Daily Deviation! This was such a wonderful surprise to wake up to, thank you KovoWolf for featuring my art! I'm glad this unique hybrid is getting some attention, it was a pleasure to paint for Secnas!
A dapper and commanding tiger/polar bear cross for Secnas! Loved doing this hybrid, both powerful animals that seem to meld well together. Nice glasses too.
Gift badges for Crimson and Noma! These badges are watercolor with a little gouache, and black India ink for the background. I am loving how the black ink makes the colored parts stand out. I leave a white border around the edges of the badge by masking it off with artist's tape, and then when it's all done they live in their own protective plastic sleeves.
Hoooooooly crap! This one took three different stream sessions to complete... Large commission featuring the child characters of myself and four other people. We figured it would make for a funny picture because all but two of our kid characters are total nighmares.
The characters include: - Sheila (female bear/babysitter) owned by NewEnglander - Two unnamed raptor twins owned by Nuwame - Lucky (baby budgie) owned by JetDelta7 - Brya (female human) owned by NewEnglander - Saddie (little terror of an arctic fox) owned by Jetdelta7 - Snowflake (pyromaniac white tiger cub) owned by Nuwame - Laurie (brown collie) owned by NewEnglander - Laurel (border collie) owned by JetDelta7 - Unnamed raccoon assassin owned by Lykos_Thebes - Ettie (female ferntail/alien) owned by myself
The Jophiel are one of the less numerous species of the Azure Wheel galaxy and are seen mostly as a species of space mystics. Their unusual appearance combines both peacock and fox; both males and females having features similar to vulpines, but covered in colorful feathers. Both genders have high crests, long feathered tails that almost completely hides a bushy fox tail and wings on their backs like angels.
Their homeworld of Kylat is often seen as a technological fairy tale. While they build modern cities, the landscape of the planet is pastoral with a lilac colored sky and fields of blue grass. The night sky of Kylat is very beautiful as well, with an emerald green nebula creating a stunning light show. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
More on this species later, since they're still in the early stages of development. I've been playing around more with an alternate coloring style. I'm pretty happy with it, but I still have a bit to go before I'm fully comfortable with it.
The Jophiel are based on the Angha, a creature from Persian mythology that combines features of dog, lion and peacock. They also happen to be one of my favorite mythical beasts, so I had to add them into my galaxy somewhere. (Aliens based on mythical beasts exist in my galaxy because of some bio engineering done by ancient humans long ago)

1 - What parts of your prompt were written well and easy to understand? Was there anything the writer of the prompt could improve on or include next time they create a prompt? For the most part, the prompt was easy to understand and gave me a lot of room to play around with (YAY!). The only thing that confused me was the color scheme, since both neutral colors and blues/greens were requested, which are two totally different things in my mind. >_<
2 - Please explain how you interpreted the prompt to create your design. Which features did you use? Did you stick to the chosen palette or make changes to it? Does the design you created have any special abilities or quirks? Male naga with a more serpentine head. Water theme. As requested. I didn't stick to any one particular type of snake, but instead combined features of several - including a cobra hood. The body is perhaps more reminiscent of an eel or Asian dragon than an actual snake. Minimal clothing for more easy swimming and the fact that I'd imaging nagas have no need for most clothes.
I stuck to a blue palette to go with the water theme. I would have added subtle stripes, but the person I was drawing for said no thin markings, so I instead added a darker colored stripe running down the back for more interest. Bright orange eyes to really make them pop.
A spear weapon, since spears are more practical for underwater than a sword or many other melee weapons.
picture from times when Agrafka and Thomas were young.
after every rain Agrafka tooks her 'rescue box' and went to pick all snails from the roads and patches. she didn't wanted anyone to crush them. Thomas thought that it's a bit weird... but he liked Agrafka so he hepls her.
