After the Storm

After the Storm

  Just a quick drawing to de-stress after a long day at work.┬áIt’s amazing how soothing it is to sit down and draw lots and lots of little hairs and floating or falling water droplets. Light on a dark background is extra gratifying. I just played beautiful music and let it flow. This is a … Continue reading

Seasonal Sabertooths

Seasonal Sabertooths

Homotherium serum was a sabertoothed cat species whose range literally spanned the globe. (It is also known more specifically as a scimitar cat because its incisors are smaller than those of sabertoothed cats such as Smilodon. It was also more lightly built and its long legs made it stand taller.) It was extremely successful and … Continue reading

My cat as a feathery dragon

My cat as a feathery dragon

It’s another picture of the same cat as a different animal! More like a colored sketch, really. Anyone who knows my art knows that I like to draw my cat as different animals. This time I decided to turn her into a dragon. It resembles more of a combination of an antelope and an archaeopteryx, … Continue reading

For those of us who suffer from anxiety from time to time, it can also be a bit of a burden. We can conjure worst-case scenarios in high definition … Continue reading

This is a picture … Continue reading

My mate is nearly a thousand miles away in a temporary (but still months-long) work situation. At the same time, though, a deep feeling of appreciation … Continue reading

Late Summer Deer

After a crazy week at work topped up with a tire blowout, I went home for the weekend very much determined to get some art done to help me relax. I wanted to do something different than usual, so I drew a deer. The vine caught in his antlers is a greenbrier or catbrier. I … Continue reading

Soaring

Soaring

I do a lot of driving around rural areas for my job now and the beauty of the land inspires me! Sometimes I really do feel like I am gliding on feathery wings, skimming trees and fencerows and fields. Whether I’m traversing the Basin, the Plateau, or the Highland Rim, the land has character all … Continue reading

Lion Design

Lion Design

Here I was just having fun designing a lion. The markings on his cheek and down his neck are inspired by ocelot markings. The streaks are not particularly realistic to any sort of real animal except perhaps certain kinds of fish. However, I made sure that the colors and general theme (dark border surrounding lighter … Continue reading
