"Brother Eagle" - This is Brother Eagle, illumination of the spirit, a healer, and creator. A messenger from the heavens, and the embodiment of the sun's spirit. Because of Eagle's connection with the Creator, I incorporated it into the picture. The black feathers the eagle is wearing belong to a crow - a symbol of creation, magick, and spiritual strength.
"Gypsy of the Forest" - This is a red-phase eastern screech owl. I was inspired by their ghostly mating calls that I often hear during summer nights; for some reason they bring magick and gypsies to mind. The owl is holding the feather of an American kestrel, its daytime hawk equivalent. As for the barred gray feathers - they belong to a gray-phase screech owl. The ethereal 'mist' towards the right of the image depicts a tree, in which the owl is conjuring up.
The current issue of Keyframe Magazine, (#31, http://www.keyframemag.com,) is running a couple of articles of mine that may be of interest to other Artists doing Fur, Hair, or Scales in 3D... "The Battle For Fur and Hair" gives an in-depth look at the Fur and Hair "Plug-Ins" for Lightwave 3D. And the Instancing Plug-in used to create the Dragon in "Enchanted" is also explored in that issue. ("Enchanted" is also the cover of the magazine.)
Novawolf was telling me about her mother's bird. he views Nova as a rival and tends to chase after her, nipping at her feet, until she finds refuge on top of a chair or bed like some sissy woman does around a mouse. So i depicted the bird as an evil lil bugger with drewling jaws and sunken eyes. Ink in my sketchbook.
"Luis the Wood Duck" I'd been itching to draw an anthro duck for a long time. One evening, a sketch exploded from my hand. It looked good, so i traced, transferred, and colored it. And there we have it...Luis the Wood duck. Colored pencils on Canson.
"Enigma" My half of an art trade with the Tamara Gale. This is her Winged Siamese, one of a pair. This one is male, has correct points, and typical feather wings. He represents light and day, while his female counter part is the dark and night. She has bat wings and her points are inverted.
Computer errors today drove me to watercolor, and attempting to replicate the style of the digital sabertoothed frog with pen and watercolor. While the computer's now fixed, I still think it's dang cute.
"Victor Reynard & Company" - A portrait of my fox bard character from Mach's D&D campaign [http://greywolf.critter.net/ad&d.htm], riding Rations the Mule, accompanied by his "familiar" (a kitten named Seither); composited and toned in Adobe Photoshop LE. (25 Feb 2003)
