Trying several different things in this picture. I just want to say, though it may not show, Socar Myles' art is definitely an inspiration in this particular piece. Tried to make the gryphon a little ratlike. *g*
The Armsman informs Asheru that the mules are quite capable of taking care of themselves, and she should probably keep her distance until they are accustomed to her. Pencil on paper. Scott A. H. Ruggels 7 / 2002
Another faux-japanese ink drawing. This time of a fox actor. I felt the fox suited this role for several reasons: Actor prints were very popular subject matter, and the feminine nature of the fox in legends meshes well with male actors, who played both male and female roles in all plays. Interesting fact; while researching the style, I came across a 17th century "Furry" print called "The Foxes wedding procession". Very cool. =)
Another in a series of faux-japanese images. Really, do I have to explain the suitability of rabbits as geisha? ;) Well, ok, the western concept of "Ladies of the Evening", and the japanese view of the Man in the Moon as being a Rabbit making rice cakes.
"Double Happiness - Double Date" Dahlia and Orchid spiffed up in cheongsams for a date. The medallion behind them is the Chinese "Double Happiness" - usually it is displayed at weddings, but I thought it applicable to this as well. Prismacolor markers and colored pencils with Micron pen on Bristol Board.
Wow! It looks great! You and Gryllus definitely made use of the down time! Well, to welcome the flood the server's going to be receiving today, I'm posting a marker painting I did for Erin Middendorf of Rollie. I'll add more pics over time when Zot gets a new scanner. I unfortunately scanned none of the cels that were featured in the Anthrocon 2002 show, but the line art exsists.
This is a sneak peek at the cover for the C-ace con book - featuring Critter Coon! I'll replace this with a full post either shortly before or shortly after the con! The original will be for sale at the con. Marker and pencil crayon. (not pictured: Burly Bear, Louie Loon and Gordon the beaver)
Surf-Ark here is a very outgoing, but naive seahorse. After a particularly wild party, Arkie realized the reason he should have paid attention in biology class, with regards to his species. The poor dumbnut is currently 6 months along. (And yes, if you're wondering, this is a very tongue-in-cheek character. The movie Junior still gives me nightmares!) Anyway, Ark Illions is my little prank creation. *hide* :>
Dingo, I want your manbabies. A little marker experimentation on gray paper. Vinci. 30's style, somewhat. He's most likely running from the wrath of the collective Estrogen Table group. Dumb raccoon. :>
my side of an art trade with the amazing Amelia Stoner!!! wow her stuff is good!!! go see!!! anyway, this is her character Daiteen, who's really black. there's a big long story to how he ended up colored like this, but you don't need to hear it. * *;
I did an update to my website but I also needed new artwork for it. This is the image that ended up sitting at the top of my pages. There's a new layout and look, loads of new stuff, and a new forum! Go see. http://www.foxholeproductions.com/
Here's some more artwork I created for my website. This eventually also ended up being turned into desktop wallpaper. If you want the wallpaper version visit my website to get it. And check out the forums while you're at it. http://www.foxholeproductions.com/
Logo Design for a friend of mine who runs an air and boat supported vet service that attends to the needs of the Alaska bush. (The majority of Alaskan communities are reachable only by air or boat -- health care for humans or animals is worth much more than gold.)
"Pieta" (20"x30", Oil on canvas). ...What it is [sled dogs] have taught me, I don't yet understand well enough to put into words. But it encompasses each and every one of them living n example of what the greatest human teachers have told us we should be. And they do this, through the simple fact of the Be-ing, through their every action, without complaint and without hesitation. -- from "Brooks Range," by Timothy Albee
Inked image, drawn in 99 actually for a story that I'm JUST now getting around to illustrating. Rescanned and reposted and it looks much better in the rescan. Tira Wrashoen, lost cub with her mother's technofamiliar standing guard..
"... and it was with heavy hearts that the Adwen army was forced to withdraw their troops. As they retreated, Azerahn, the Bleeding Dragon lycanthrope tribe's slave-driver as well as the clan's priest, Dhuma, mounted on the back of his nightmare watched them from the highest hilltop as a hawk watches it's prey. The countless, lifeless bodies of both lycanthrope and Theran lay in the valley below them in a single mass grave. The day was over. For the time being, evil had triumphed."
