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…
Icon comish for Corbett5248 of FA of the raven character, Corbett!
Ah, I don't do avians enough - this guy was fun to work on, I'm real happy with how he turned out! Corbett specifically asked for me to show part of the wing in the background, so hence why that's there, hehe.
Sketch comish done for of none other than the epic dragon, Gildawraith, ready to ruin your day!
Hehe, always a pleasure to work on some rad scales! Gildawraith is just so awesome! I was asked to draw him walking forward holding some daggers, looking threatening, and I had a blast working on it. B) (I know, I know, the pose kind of looks like Ezio on some of the ACII posters and game stuff, I know, you don't have to comment about it.)
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!
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.
A dress-up doll badge commissioned by *kcravenyote or her bad-ass character, Dark Kace! I love doing these because it feels like arts and crafts time in kindergarten or something. My mom used to have this enormous cabinet of stuff like this for my brother, sister and I do.
Marker and colored pencil on bristol Individual pieces laminated and affixed with double stick tape
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.
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.

Well, finally getting around to introducing other characters.
I had fun drawing this one, but the lettering was a bitch. Trying to lay it out made me realize just how bad at it I am. The font size in previous strips has probably been much larger than necessary. It's a little smaller this time, but there's more dialogue here than usual and it quickly became smooshed. Well, anyway, sorry if it's difficult to read. That's on my list of things to improve upon (along with singing in key and marmot wrangling).
I had some requests here for a URL [link] that would always display the most recent comic - the lackadaisy web site now has the brains to do this.
A combination of preview material from upcoming comic pages (upcoming in the very near future if I can stay awake long enough), and a quick, sketchy and rather odd comic I originally drew for the Lackadaisy forum members. 'Whatever happened to Viktor's eye?' had come up as a topic more than once, but asking Viktor himself was to little avail, I guess.
I also had numerous requests for more translated-to-human drawings of the characters after I included some in a prior compilation of sketches. As before, if you're familiar with the characters at all, it's hopefully not very difficult to recognize them.
There seems to be some confusion about what the bug-eyed thing talking to Viktor is. Well, that would be me...or, well, a crude representation of me (the same one used in my DA journal). I am about that short, but I promise I don't actually look that much like a muppet.
This follows directly after the comic entitled 'Lackadaisy Rumrunner' here in my gallery. Fortunately, it should be the last comic I post out of chronological order...at least until the next time I get ahead of myself. (The easiest way to view everything -in- chronological order is at Lackadaisycats.com [link]).
So anyway, yeah, sorry about the disorderliness.
The comic art is starting to go a little smoother as I'm getting a feel for the process...hopefully that means it'll gradually begin looking more refined. At some point, I suspect I'll experiment with more brazen/creative layouts, but for right now, simply completing the artwork in a timely fashion and getting a confident handle on pace and clarity in storytelling are my first priorities.
This one is a little weird...but that just seems to be the trend to Rocky's existence.
(Don't worry, though. I won't go all "Deliverance" on you or anything. )
This is Chief Audyl, also known as Cyndernose, a Redwall fan character whom I use in the ongoing story "Three Tales, One Story" about Martin the Warrior's waysiding on his journey from North to Middle Countries. Here he is pictured enjoying his favorite past time... drink. He's not a bad sort, a bit of an alcoholic, perhaps, and has a touch of snark in every bone in him, but overall not a bad sort.
Painting done with my preferred medium; watercolors, and no watercolor pencils used this time. The full size of it is about 11x14 inches, and covering that whole badboy with paint and texturing it took a combined total of six hours. I'm quite proud of it. This is a pretty good example of what my watercolor commissions of anthropomorphic subjects turn out like; not entirely realistic, but with the right sort of anatomy.... Time to go wrestle the commission widget again, I suppose~
