Flame Lord Eric Commission - 1 OCT 2006
October 2006
Pencil, Pen, MS Paint

Unfortunately, this picture doesn't seem to have any title apart from the barest details of its creation. As I recall, the details of this commission were "Flame Lord leaning on Spug in order to talk to Sasha". I threw Ember into the mix as a conversation point, as well as to have an excuse to make Eric looks cutesy.

It's a good picture, overall. This was near the end of the era of blank white backgrounds for me. It was also one of the last hand-drawn pictures before I received my Wacom.

My favorite part of the picture was drawing Eric's "underbelly"; that is, the paler palms of the hands that black folk have. I had to have a somewhat racially insensitive conversation with him, where I plumbed the depths of how exactly that coloration works. Does it wrap around the fingertips and go up to the fingernail? Does it stop at the wrist? I had no frame of reference.

Yeah, he's kinda Beanie Baby-ey in this pic. I think I had just recently seen someone hold a lizard of some kind this way.

Aha, so this is that picture.
I've seen avatars made from it but have never seen the full thing.
I like the way you drew Sasha holding Ember, with his chubby limbs sticking out.

I think life with a very indolent cat has taught me how to draw such a thing believably.

It also reminds me of holding Isis the ferret, getting a grip around her fat tube-ness, and holding her tail for additional control should she start wriggling.
