This is Jerry. I know I haven't put up a proper image for her like I have the other girls, but I'll get to that eventually.

And, no, absolutely no one is supposed to mention the "Nuagette-flying" thing.

You know that friend who, no matter what you say, they've always gotta spoil a movie you haven't seen?

Well, meet Celia. She spoils movies that she hasn't even seen!

I conceptualized this about two months ago to commemorate the fact that I'd just built one of my conlangs ("Bashyran") to a total vocabulary of a thousand words. Because I'm that big of a loser. And I decided that, since I'm building the language to suit a fantasy culture, I decided that I wanted to make pictures to correspond with the milestones I decided to celebrate.
For a little background: the Bashra are a warrior society, although not as fanatic as Stargate: SG-1's Jaffa or psychotic as Star Trek's Klingons. This particular picture is an apprentice to the Bashra's knight caste, a proud caste which most Bashra strive to be a part of. After education at a knight academy, he will eventually be picked up by a veteran and taught that knight's martial skills. This guy must get a master once he leaves the academy; if he goes for too long without one, he will be forced by his family to pick up a different trade.

Spent the rest of the night with a cold pack on my head. That bag was pretty heavy.

This was an idea I started last year. That in no plausible way indicates how long I actually worked on it.
This is a fact sheet I made for Alexandra to help me sort of flesh out her behavior. I have one for each of my story anthro characters, and I intend to eventually release similar pictures.
Yet again, another series that will take me a long time to finish. Like I didn't have enough already...

Color version of the previous sketch. The background came out truer to what I had in mind when I did the "Comics" a couple years back. Those glowing boards behind her are supposed to be advertisements which occasionally pop up along the street as you're walking.

Another "sketch", as it were, this time using Dule. Not as much of a pain as Carrie's was since the background is not a large, dark mat which results in a large bit of my stylus nib disappearing. While some of you may note that the characters on the window behind her look like I just barfed up a bunch of non-sense Chinese characters on the spot, well... not quite. Dule's story takes place in the future; those characters are modifications made to existing Chinese characters.

"Among the currents of the ocean deep,
Clothed in the colors of her home,
Does the youthful girl follow her teacher,
Silent so that she may learn his songs"

I actually finished this a couple months back, but I'd neglected to post it. Ninfea, meaning "water lily", is an undine which I had posted a while back. I wanted to make another picture of her in a similar vein to the Brise picture I had posted a couple years ago.
This one actually came out much better than Brise's picture. It took me a while to find something, but I studied a few pictures of blue whales to get the skin of the whale she's riding. The one thing that bothers me is her arms. They were really kind of awkward.

Okay, so I haven't gotten over the whole "Mecha Musume" thing yet.
This one is the same class of ship (the Shotoha) as the Mogami post, but this is a different ship. So I changed up some of the markings on her armor, added and subtracted a few things, and drew the whole thing on computer to make this one look a little nicer. She came out a whole lot better than Mogami did.
This girl is SE-09, one of Mogami's sisters. I included a few details that I didn't on Mogami, one of them being the ID number on her leg parts. Her pose isn't all that dynamic, but I can work on that with the next one.

I did this just to satisfy my stupid need to anthropomorphize things. -_-;;
This is a result of spending the past week looking at mecha musume pictures and wanting to draw my own pictures. This is what I finally popped out: a mecha musume picture of SE-16 that I posted earlier. I sketched it out, scanned it, and colored it in the bit of free time I had these past few days. I wasn't particularly confident in drawing her armor, so I referenced a few pictures on my computer. The picture would probably look better if I'd drawn the thing completely on computer, but I just didn't have the time for it. There wasn't a whole lot of detail to her, mostly because the Shotoha-class ships are relatively flat. But it's not bad for the first mecha musume I've drawn in years.

So, I got a little bored tonight and decided to make this little piece. Each of the little icons represents one of the stories/series that I write. The inspiration for this came from a fan piece of Type-Moon's Kagetsu Tohya, and I though it looked kind of cool. The idea came after I finished designing the last of these icons which I might use in my moe anthropomorphism pictures somehow.

So I decided that I wanted to try dressing my stories in, well... dresses. Technically, the Jennifer post I put up earlier was the first one, but this one of Carrie is the first picture of the entire outfit. The pose came out all right, and the planet was so-so. But the way the station curves in the background was too strong for the "ring" idea I had. But it's one of the better backgrounds I've done.

An experiment with coloring. I took a bit of inspiration from Outlaw Star, particularly the ending credits which had those beautiful color sketches while a couple of my favorite songs played.
Looking at this one, I feel like I could've done better. But it's a pain to scribble in a dark background without developing a cramp. It's something to learn from.

Something that grew out of a sketch I did a few days ago. It's a little long-winded, but it's supposed to explain why this girl, Adeth, is chained to an anchor at the bottom of an ocean.

SE-16 of the Atlantis Star Fleet, the Mogami-Gawa was named after a river in Japan. This model has all of its lights on and with sufficient environmental lighting. It also has its unique identification marks similar to the Wilhelm Bauer which I posted months ago. And I guarantee that my Japanese is better than my German. ^_^

The Shotoha-class frigate in transit mode. The Shotoha-class pulls its nacelles in to centralize its mass, allowing it to maneuver better while traveling at FTL speeds. It was meant to get in and out of operation areas as fast and discrete as possible, and the smaller transit mode helps decrease the amount of ship there is to see.

The Shotoha-class with its weapons ports open. This ship is actually more of a stealth craft than a combat vessel, so it doesn't have as much weaponry compared to other vessels of its size. That said, its weapons are advanced beam technologies and warhead complements which let it match up against ships four times its size.
