www.extinctioners.com has had minor updates,also information about the release date of Extinctioners 10, which can now be ordered in the current Previews under Shanda Fantasy Arts, to ship in February. I am also now opening up for submissions for the first ever annual for Extinctioners with a tentative deadline of May 2002. Info on how to submit can be found on various newsgroups, but I'll be putting up the guildelines tomorrow on my site. Alleycat copyright Shawntae Howard 2001
Artica Lagopus. Shorter then Scarlet with a little more weight on her. Decided to do a sketch of her skull using photos of artic fox skulls and modifying it a little. Artica copyright Shawntae Howard 2002.
Now I know why the black widow is called its name, this one almost killed my poor inking pen. Took forever to get this shiney look on her and all the hairs on the big tarantula. Trying to keep my Mr. Versatile self lable, I wanted to do morphs that no one else usually try. Would they be considered arachnotaurs? As of yet named critters copyright Shawntae Howard 2002.
This image is in honor to my Great Grandfather Felton "Poppa Felt" Taylor who passed away today 3/22/01 at 4pm est. He was born June 25, 1900 and was loved and will be missed by all he touched. May God guild his gental soul into His Loving hands. Shawntae Howard 2001.
Was interesting drawing a charater that's almost twice my age. Made me do a lot of research on the character too and learned a lot about him I didn't know. This was my first attempt at drawing himn and again done at Six Flags.
Catrina (Vague) and Katherine (Alleycat) Fela, the dynamic sister duo of Extinctioners. This will be used for the cover of my third Ladies of Extinctioners folio slated to be finished next year. If you'd like to see some fanart and discussion about Vague, fans have created her own fan club at http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/vaguesfanclub (mature audience) and there is always the general audience http://clubs.yahoo.com/clubs/clubextinctioners.

Another more realistic color pencil drawing of one of my characters. This is CeeCee Reese, the weasle (not otter) in her mid-winter white phase. She's holding a lemming on her paw. Why? Cause it was in the nature book I was using as a reference. Hey, and she's pink too, sorta here.CeeCee copyright Shawntae Howard (check out Yahoo Club Extinctioners) :)
Thanks to Joshua the Samuri, there will be an Extinctioners Soundtrack availble in limited numbers for AC this year. I'm hoping to make it a music/art cd (if I can figure out the technology of the CD burning software I have to make a split cd)At anyrate, this is the cover of the mini booklet I'm making for it that will feature art of each character who gets their own song and bio info on them. (BTW, I'll be gone from home for a week this posts so please hold e-mails and old e-mails, I'll get back with you when I get home). Extinctioners copyright S.Howard 2002
Ah, my first upload under the new system. Nice. Well here's the logo design for the music/art CD I put together for this years AC. Once I got the design of the display on it worked out, I'll offer it to the general public. Characters copyright Shawntae Howard 2002
With each page of the booklet I tried to give some basic info on the character with short bios and a little quote that fit the mood of the music that was created for them. Copyright Shawntae Howard 2002.

Artica Lagopus done in a more realistic way in colored pencils. She's wearing a copyright t-shirt with my sig ($) which is made up of the letters "S", "L", "H". If there's any doubt, she's copyright Shawntae L. Howard 2001.
Maxwell is a cat that really has nine lives. As Copycat he has the ability of creating 8 energy based duplicates of himself that are so real it seems like they are almost alive, or are they. Not the most energetic of the group, you could say he's down right lazy except when it comes to sports or finding time for his kitten love, Katherine. Just never say "you and what army" around this guy cause you might not like his reply. Copycat copyright Shawntae Howard 2001.
I've been practicing doing some simple fighting game like animations of my characters using ImageReady. This is a basic starting stance of Micro and Copycat with some color swatches for memory sake and if anyone wants to draw them they'll have the color reference ready. Copyright S. Howard 2003
