MineCraft - Mutual Terror
Another fun piece I completed at Anime Expo 2016.

This one explored the idea that maybe MineCraft Creepers are just as afraid of YOU as you are of THEM!

I don’t know about everyone else, but when I play MineCraft I tend to rush every Creeper I find to just KILL IT DEAD!! Rather than risk it ... well... ’creeping’ up behind me.

Stands to reason they could have the same mentality right? :D

Amaterasu and Wolf Link
This was a fun and whimsical piece I completed during Anime Expo 2016.

I seem to get a lot of positive response when I draw a ’cute’ critter image during con. so this time I tried for some Wolf Cubs! and who else to pick but Amaterasu and Wolf Link!

I hope you guys enjoy this little drawing as much as I do!

done on 4x6 Bristol card with Copic Markers

Couerl Color
I loved the little Couerl design I doodled up, so I decided to color it! (with Copic Markers of course)... I wanted some atypical colors that still hinted at the ’displacer beasts’ I’d pulled inspiration from, so I hope you guys like the nod. ;p

Random Unicorn Colored
Another ballpoint pen drawing I decided to color.

Mostly because I don’t do a lot of ’unicorns’. I thought it might be fun to play with the stereo types again by coloring it ’paint’.

Stretch Little Ulfkaida!
My PERSONAL favorite of the ballpoint pen drawings was the little Infant Ulfkaida... So I happily brought him up to color!

I figured a little ’fox’ and maybe a little ’faun’ (as in the deer) would add to the level of cute for this little guy! XD

He was fun as always to work on. :)

Etheric Butterfly Dragon
originally a cleaned pencil sketch, I added some fun golden color to this drawing... I was aiming for a ’spirit’ or Etheric sort of creature... it was kind of fun to experiment with. :D

Furry Dragon Colored
my first “Ulfkaida“ originally just called a “Furry Dragon“, was done in mechanical pencil in 2007. ... but it has aged very well and remained one of my most popular drawings.

So I hoped was excited when I finally finished coloring this piece! I thought such an dynamic drawing needed equally dynamic color and I pulled my inspiration from the beautiful North American Kestrels!

Spirit Dragon
The sketch version of this is probably one of my oldest renders. Originally completed in 2004 (more than a decade ago) I wondered if I could take that pencil drawing and breath a little new life into it!

I thought it came out rather well! (anatomy issues aside) and it just goes to show why you shouldn’t discount or dispose of your older art pieces. ;)

Random Chinese Dragon Colored
Probably my single most popular ballpoint pen piece to date, I really wanted some spectacular color on this fantastical drawing... So I thought a brilliant sunset might work well for this guy! ;D

The Wise River
While the original drawing was simply a sketch of whimsy, when it came time to color... I couldn’t help but think of Kohaku from Spirited Away... So here’s a slight nod to that movie classic.

Random Sea Serpent
Yet another ballpoint pen drawing brought up to be colored. :D I’m on a bit of a roll you could say...

While I may have opted for “Poisonous“ on my last Sea Serpent. I decided “Venomous“ would work better for this one. So I gave him color patterns inspired by the “Blue Coral Snake“ ... VERY venomous! XD

Rage Serpent Colored
Originally designed for a ’Siren’ contest, I finally took another look at this loud-mouthed Sea Serpent.

I thought ’poisonous’ would be a good look for this sleek Oceanic Beasty, and colored accordingly. :D

Random Sea Dragon Colored
Another ballpoint pen drawing I opted to color. This one my “Random Sea Dragon“

I tried to add a little ’Majesty’ to this creature, Gold and Royal purple... I can just picture this monster being one of the kings of the sea.

Chubby Dragon Colored
This drawing was originally sketched up for one of my art students.

the line work was clean and the subject a bit different than my preferred style so I thought some fun color wouldn’t go amiss on this little guy!

Random Dragon - Color
This is really one of my older ballpoint pen on index card pieces, but people still seem to like it well enough, so I decided to go ahead and throw some color on there!

Hopefully you guys like this version too! :D

Fantasy Swimming Pool Colored
Finally colored that silly, whimsical swimming pool thing!

I really focused on the amusing interaction between the mermaid and the werewolf... and that was quite fun!

... the background is really not great. I’m not happy with it, but I couldn’t get enthused about fixing it. so I figured you guys might enjoy the foreground regardless. ;)

Drakgarou Family Colored
The Final and Finished Drakgarou Commission. Parent and Child together, and colored with Copic Markers.

There was a little frusteration when I could not get ahold of the shade of ’tan’ that I needed for the parent Drakgarou’s belly fur. but I did some minute tweaking on Photoshop with the scan.

I’ll just have to keep hunting down those elusive markers!

In the meantime, I hope you guys enjoy my take on a “Draconic Werewolf“ :D

Also, please note I have permission to sell this image as a print, if anyone is interested! ^_~

Zombie Werewolf Colored
I had perhaps a bit TOO much fun coloring this macabre horror-beast. lots of exposed flesh, blood, organs, bits of bone... I kind of wanted to put more fur patterning in, but I couldn’t get it to work without de-emphasizing all that wonderful gore...:/

oh well...

Sabertooth Hellhound
Based on a dream I had, I decided to color this beasty with Copic Markers.

In my dream (or perhaps nightmare) this was a very lithe and agile monster... despite its impractical dental hardware.

Adic Hellhound
pulled from a pencil sketch on an index card. I decided to color this Acid-drooling, spiny, fur-less demonic canine.

just an interesting concept I doodled up at one point.

Hunting Hellhounds Colored
The Same beasties from my Hellhound Romance image... this time drawn a little more fiercely... at least for the adults.

Hellhound Romance Colored
The Colored version of my Hellhound Romance picture. I tried to keep the colors close to the original design, while adding a little complexity.

Splice Monster Colored
This bizzare, and really rather ugly creation was once done for a ’contest’ to splice creatures together.

I tried to go a rather ’creepier’ route with the design on this critter, hopefully the color patterns I chose reflect that. :D

Random Beasty Colored
A fun whimsical mashup of predator prey, this piece was originally done in ballpoint pen, I enjoyed adding some color to this fun image.

The Grand Chimera Colored
The original line art was completed back in 2007. But I FINALLY got around to coloring this piece! I tried to have the markings reflect the same crazy creature fusion as the concept work did.

I hope you guys enjoy!

Baby Dragons
At Each Convention I attend I try to complete an ’Exclusive’ Original Image that’s offered for sale at THAT CON ONLY.

So for Califur this year I drew up a little playful Dragon Family. Done on 5x8 Bristol Paper with Copic Markers.

This one was adopted by a happy new family!

Look for more original Fantasy Artwork from me at future conventions! Or I am also open for Commissions.

Playing Card - Toothless & Hiccup
Yet another "Playing Card" for my collection! ^_^

Colored with my limited Copic Marker selection (67 markers at the time.)

I recently saw the teaser-trailer for How to Train your Dragon 2. ... really looking forward to it!

Playing Card - Loki of Asgard
Yet another "Playing Card" for my collection! ^_^

Colored with my limited Copic Marker selection (67 markers at the time.)

I completed this one at Anime Expo 2013. :D ... Do I really need a reason to draw Loki? ... Nuff Said.

Playing Card - Jack Frost
Yet another "Playing Card" for my collection! ^_^

Colored with my limited Copic Marker selection (67 markers at the time.)

I completed this one at Anime Expo 2013. :D ... unsurprisingly, the Rise of the Guardians characters were wildly popular this year, and since I thoroughly enjoyed the movie myself, I had plenty of fun drawing this one up.

Elapidae Draconem
Also Known As "Cobra Dragon".

I made up this piece specifically for the "Year of the Snake" contest at #Dragon-Fanatics

As the name suggests I designed this dragon critter based on cobras and other venomous snakes. ... the patterning is Mostly "Philippine Cobra" and part "Bush Viper" and part "Diamond Back Rattlesnake" ... needless to say it's a very venomous dragon. ;)

I envision this dragon living in a very tropical climate, where food is plentiful, but there are bigger predators to warn away.

I had a lot of fun with this piece, and I'm very happy with how it turned out. (though as some might notice, I didn't try to match the lighting in the background with the foreground. I was trying to leave emphasis on the design concept.) and much thanks to my brother ~amascusmage for suggestions on snake species and overall support.

Coy Wolf - Tattoo Commission
This image was commissioned through my brother ~Khodexus ... who had a friend online who'd seen and particularly liked my Vector Furrsona, and wanted a design.

Her request was in particular, "A male wolf, in a feminine pose, done in a tattoo style." ... rather a thought-provoking order, but I found the challenge quite interesting. so here's my efforts. ... this may NOT be the finished version, as I haven't gotten feedback from this since the first-draft. (over a year ago.) ... So I was hoping posting it online would make it more accessible to this particular fan.

Luka - Color
So here's the colored version of my character Luka,

A Father's Form
This picture, is a finished and colored Furrsona Avatar for my father ~Papa-Wolf ...

He's just started work teaching full-time in Texas, while in a fast-track program to help him get his teaching credentials.

anyways, he asked me for an Avatar that he could post on the teacher's websites. and I made this up for him. (yes he did in fact request it to be anthropomorphic.)

I've long-since decided to draw my father's furrsona as a 'manned-wolf' species. Those of you who aren't familiar with manned wolves, (which are neither wolves, nor the foxes they resemble) I highly recommend looking them up! They're a fascinating species.

My Personal Dragon - Colored
I finally got around to coloring "My Personal Dragon". The original drawing was based on a "What kind of Dragon Are You" Quiz by *Dreamnorn. which, unfortunately, no longer seems to be up.

Anyways, according to the quiz I was mostly 'Water', secondary 'Wind', and just a dash of 'bubble' (which is a cat-like dragon)

In keeping with my new theme, here's the next "Roth" picture. Sephiroth Cosplaying "Cupid" for Valentines day.

Now, I just couldn't really picture going with the cliché 'cherub in a diaper' version of cupid, so I actually based this one more on the Renaissance paintings of the Greek god 'Cupid'. ... So it's rather half 'anatomy study' and half 'fan service'.
