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 Lorena of FA of her gorgeous sona, Lorena the cougar!
I had a lot of fun with this gal, and I love how it turned out! I used a combo of soft and cell shading, especially on the fluff there, and then the hair, to create the cool atmosphere I wanted since I wanted to get that smoke in there... I really love how the colours turned out on her face - I added extra purple there to deepen the shadows and create a glow from the little embers.
(Title because 'Reign of Fire' was on TV while I was working on this. 8D )
Small bust comish done for the epic JackStone112 of FA of none other than Jack!
Great warm-up piece for the day, I had a blast working on this one! Jack is always fun to work on, and this is kind of a special piece since he's getting a fursuit done! He wanted a front-view of Jack as a reference for the suit maker.
I've been thinking of offering small and large busts in this style, (and 3/4 view,) and also smaller badges like this, (like 2x3" and less expensive as opposed to my current large 4x6" ones.) Expect a journal update concerning these in the future.
Thanks again Jack! Hope ya like it and have a blast in your suit!
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!
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.

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.
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.
September has been a rough month. And it's peculiar how sometimes art can simultaneously feel like the thing which best sustains you and the thing which causes you the most personal turmoil. Is that weird?
Oh well. I've put in a lot of work to get to a place where I feel caught up. Here it is.
Of course, little of it will make sense without the context of the previous pages. Those can all be found in chronological order at The Archive
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. )
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.
