Ray and Mercedes, talking about Ray's anxiety problem. Poor guy struggles with anxiety due to things that happened in his childhood, and is terrified of being alone or being abandoned. SPOILERS AHEAD: when Spike starts dating Mercedes' roommate, Lillith, Ray is afraid that he'll lose Spike as a friend since Spike is spending more time with Lillith. All this worrying causes him to have many anxiety attacks when he's left alone. He decides to talk to Mercedes (who he feels is sort of like a big sister to him) and get some advice on what to do.
so that's briefly what this drawing is about. I could tell more, to let it make more sense and have a lot more depth to it, but I'd just spoil things.... :c it'll make more sense when the novel is done

Commission for Kirinafa, of her pastel colored snow leopard gal. It was requested that I go a bit lighter on the background this time, which was a good experience! I favor dark tonal schemes and rich colors on blacks. It also forced me to treat the background texture a bit different than usual.
8 hour in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet Comments disabled, my apologies
Commission for Nevermint of his wolf/deer hybrid, Jager! This time Jager is featured in archery gear, generally being badass. I went stupidly overtime on this because I wasn't able to sit down and just power through like I usually do. With only a half an hour to a couple hours of work time between family/holiday obligations, it was tough to concentrate. So while this normally would have taken one or two days, it dragged WAY out. I have lost track of the hours, but it's definitely over time. XD
P.S. the title means "A student or lover of archery"
Some hours (maybe 10) in Photoshop with an Intuos 3 tablet
A long overdue commission for Hida! This one is among the oldest on my list, and was a blast to work on. It's not clear if small blue dragons are on the menu, or if Nym is just so excited for that salmon that she doesn't even see Hida. XD
Little B-Day gift for my friend Raging Dog and The Black Wanderer) His OC Hatsuyuki and my Ayoko. It's spring and yeah it's snowing
Что-ж, мой юный падаван, настало время снежной весны. А также и очередного года за плечами. Черный Странник не оставил без внимания Бесноватого Пса, просто не хотел поздравлять без подарка - пусть и такого небольшого)) Выкроила таки время для этого события, уф... и, надеюсь, тебе понравится)) С днем рождения, Кэди) Всего тебе самого наивдохновенного) Надеюсь, ты выйдешь на свою тропу жизни, поддаваясь шепоту Луны и взываниям ветра. Она непременно поведет тебя искосыми путями приключений и жизни. Спасибо за все это время общения. Ты один из немногих людей, к которым я прониклась по-настоящему) Я очень ценю все это время. Надеюсь, что когда-нибудь мы таки совершим то небольшое путешествие, которое не состоялось, ахахха))
