HAPPINESS

happiness_watermarkWOW! IT HAS BEEN A WHILE!
So, so sorry that I’ve disappeared for quite a long time! Between work and life stuffs, I haven’t time nor energy for artwork, so I’ve been away for about a year.

I’m still not fully back (can’t take commissions), but at the very least I wanted to start arting for myself again to work out all the rust I’ve accumulated since I’ve been away. My post today was inspired by a cute dog photo I saw on my Facebook feed one day:

Originally this wasn’t going to be a new version of feral Kaze that has been floating around in my head for months, but once I started to flesh this piece out, I just knew I had to draw feral Kaze in one of her more “canine” moments. (She is part husky after all. LOL!)

COMMISSION: Inner Phantom

Image

Trey Cuffed Commission_watermarkCommission for CrimzonPhoenix of Facebook of his character, a black wolf with blue tinted fur and blue eyes wearing military dog tags, wrestling with a phantom that resides in his head. It’s a very personal piece, and I’m glad I was able to take it on.

The image that I was given for the phantom looked very much like it was in the shape of a Haunter (Pokemon), which explains why the phantom in this image may look like a Haunter to some people. However, I tried to make the phantom more unique by adding fire, lava drool, molten rock teeth, and uniquely fiery red glowing eyes. I think by adding those features it made the phantom seem more sinister and it’s own unique being.

Also, I used A LOT of experimental techniques on this piece, and I think it came out rather well. 🙂

COMMISSION: Arufa Icon

Arufa Icon_WatermarkAnother commission for Ryou of his other character, Arufa, the judgmental wolf.

If you are wondering why these usually have a plain white background, it’s because they intended to be transparent, and not a lot of websites support it. It looks WAY better as a transparent image though

Also, they are all facing the same way so they blend better together on a banner for his website, The Douchkins. Check it out! He does some really awesome video game “Let’s Play”s. (Also my art is going to be all over that website eventually. XD)

COMMISSION: By Our Powers Combined!

Ryou Front View_background_watermark_1000Another commission (full color, simple shading) for the awesome Ryouichi Sato via Facebook of a design of all his fursonas combined together. He specifically requested that I draw a complete front view too since I don’t draw them often and he wanted to challenge me.

Special thanks to my best friend, Gabby Tuttle, for keeping track of my proportions as I was drawing this. Front views are a major bear for proportions!

Magical DMCA

DMCA

There’s a lot of art theft going around on social media lately. I find it funny that most people don’t understand that this “magical” copyright policy called “Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA)” protects artists, such as myself, from getting their work stolen.

Just because you can use a Google search, that doesn’t make the work “free use”. This also doesn’t mean you can take the work, and ESPECIALLY so without citing the sources.

Please, learn your copyright laws:

COMMISSION: Darkwolf611 (No Stars in the City)

Image

Anthony Richards Stars commission_watermark

Another commission for the amazing Darkwolf611 of his character looking up at the starry night sky in a city environment. Darkwolf611 informed me that he is also going to write a story for this image to accompany this image, so once that is done, I’ll be linking that to the image as well.

More on the technical sides of things, I painted A LOT of bricks in this piece. Because I don’t do a lot of geometric shapes, the perspective seems to look a little off, but it doesn’t seem to effect the over all composition of the piece too much.

COMMISSION: CrimzonPhoenix

CrimzonPhoenix_commission_watermark_resize

Commission for CrimzonPhoenix of FA of a black wolf with blue eyes wearing dog tags walking across the desert, and while he walks, he creates plant life. He’s rather confused by this.

Props to my friend, Lizabeth Carroll, for hovering over my shoulder and making sure I got the shading and lighting right. ❤

COMMISSION: A Long Awaited Postcard

Trish_Commission_post card_resize

Last year was definitely an interesting one. At the end of the year, I found out that I have a long lost older sister on my dad’s side from Hawaii. My whole family was thrown through a loop. We eventually met in person, and I had no doubts that she is my sister. We are alike in SO many ways. I just hope that one day I can be as successful as her.

When my sister found out that I was taking art commissions, she gladly obliged. She told me that she wanted her and her whole family as their favorite animals walking on a sunset beach. I thought it was a brilliant idea, so this is what I produced.

From left to right: my sister (white wolf/tiger with teal and black markings), her youngest son (tom cat), her oldest daughter (pink/purple zebra-corn), her oldest son (komodo dragon), her husband (Bengal tiger), and her youngest daughter (purple and pink pony)

This piece took me months to complete, and I know there are still some things that need to be worked on, but over all I am happy with the results.

Kaze has Crashed – Must Restart

It’s finals week. My brain is dying, and the process reminded me of this video: http://youtu.be/7LduDVpjpdA

I just had to draw feral Kaze doing something similar. XD
