Picked up some Prismacolor brush pens today, so I woke up Yoaki, my occasional foxgirl, to give them a whirl. She's not the type to be wielding a sword, but I was having a hard time with that hand.

I realized only a few days later that my first poster for my novel Aurius wasn't big enough for my table at Gen Con this week, so I made this companion poster out of the cover art, featuring the villain of the story, Dharius.

Hope to see you at Gen Con in Indianapolis this weekend!

Side note: Yes, I've just changed my name on here, and yes, this is my real name. Trust me, I'm as surprised as you are!

Started this back in April, though I hadn't been working on it much since then. I think I'm going to do more marker work in the near future.

At long last, new art. This is my first completed art - for myself - this year. The sketch was done nearly three years ago. Diamondback rattlesnake naga in the Mojave desert.

At Anime North earlier this year, I got a lot of comments on the Magus fanart I had for sale - almost all of which asked if I had more Chrono Trigger fanart, which, sad to say, I didn't. So, I decided to fix that, starting small, of course. Bookmarks of these should be available at my table at Fan Expo at the end of the month.

As usual, my mother-in-law *cough* convinced me to play with watercolours at her place this weekend, and I decided to try something more in my usual style this time. I had the pose visualized, and for some reason, the only character that came to mind for it was my old elf character that I hadn't drawn in years, Sigyn, though I forgot his most distinguishing trait - his tail.

More an experiment than anything. It's only classified as finished because I don't think I'll be going back to add a background as I originally intended.

Concept art for a character in my novel Eyes of a Dragon. I like the outfit, but it's too fancy for him for most of the story, and if he was wearing something like this, his hair wouldn't be down. Gives an idea of how he looks, anyway.

Whew. This picture has been a long time coming. It was a labour of love, and I can only guess how many hours of work it took me. I was able to let go and just work like I haven't managed in quite some time, and not only have I produced something more like I'd like to do with my art - in terms of technical production and detail - but it's a rare instance when I feel like I've actually done something to the best of my ability.

Depicting my favourite characters from one of my all-time favourite video games, this is from the beginning of Final Fantasy VI for Super Nintendo (and all its remakes since), when Locke protects Terra in the Narshe mines.

Hope you like it.
Additional Credits: Terra and Locke belong to Square-Enix. Some design elements for Terra's outfit based on a cosplay by Itchy Tasty Gal. (I luvs her Terra. Seriously, go have a look.)

Inspired by some really talented furry artists - namely Jocarra and Vantid, who make it look so easy! - I felt like trying my hand at something a little more realistic than my usual fare. Oil pastels, ACEO (2.5" x 3.5") size.
