Happy Draw A Centaur Day! 8D
Actually managed to contribute a good sketch this year and the lucky candidate is Balrog. I haven’t drawn this butt ugly swamp monster in ages so I figured he’d be the perfect odd centaur for the day!

Figured I’d toss this up here!
Since I’ve changed my logo and vitae I needed to add the new logo to my site. Its currently down while the changes are being made but here’s a preview! And also a preview of my business card.
Last of the old sketchbook finds for now~
This one wasn’t too far back, it was done my senior year when all the stress had piled on. It was also around the time I got my twin coyote skulls, one of which is pictured. I was in my Media Installation class listening to the cluster of assholes and just working through everything by doing this.

I was digging through some of my old sketchbooks this afternoon and came across some drawings I never finished but thought they were worth sharing!
This one was done my freshman year at CCAD not long after transferring from the Art Institute back home. H’jad was a very constant figure in a lot of my work during those years and a large part of how I kept my sanity and didn’t just devolve into an amorphous blob of sickness and stress. This sketch in particular was for a class in 2008 as part of a larger project. It never got done but I think its strong enough even unfinished~
He and Saleeda have such a complicated relationship, it still is complicated, but they love each other.

Another old sketchbook find!
This one is either from 2008 or 2009, around the same time I started drawing Fissure/Kalki. Fissure is one of my inner demons, or at least a personification of, it shows up in a lot of vent art - especially when I was going through the gambit of finding the right meds.
I can remember working on this one off and on and just never got back to it because school was just too busy. Looking at it reminds me that even though that was four years of hell, good art like this came out of it.

And because it took me forever, here’s a proper picture of Guion in panties~
Some of you probably remember this post in which I put my TF OCs in panties, and Guion was the reluctant party. Apparently frills and lace aren’t his thing, pvc and latex are. So I slapped on some pvc undies and he cooperated! :D
Many many thanks to sweet bean Lolo for the red line! My anatomy-fu was failing pretty hard when I was trying to sketch this! ILU BEANS~

So AlwaysAleila and I have been puttering around with the idea of a shared studio thing and seeing where it goes!
She showed me this post on her tumblr and mentioned it’d make a sweet logo, with obvious changes and personal flair of course. So on my lunch for the last few days I played around with the concept. Since its a mutual studio thingus I kept the idea of simplicity which is Lei’s MO and tried to incorporate elements of myself without impeding on that. Since she’s very much the deer in an animal sense I wanted to try either lion or bull for my portion. And then of course just using Kudu horns to represent myself.
There’s still a lot of room to play, but so far its going in the right direction!

Meet Bjarte! 8D
This giant fluffy beast is my mountain mutt who was inspired by the Alterac Brew Pup in WoW (yes I play, but haven’t had time recently sobsob). Instead of being a St. Bernard mix, Bjarte here is some of my favorite dogs rolled into one giant lovable slobber monster. <3 He’s a mix of Bernese Mtn. Dog x Great Pyrenees x Newfoundland x Tibetan Mastiff, as far as his markings and coloration go I’m leaning towards a predominantly chocolate in color with tan and white markings like the Bernese. I’m not sold on it yet but I’ll play with color when I have time!

This is something I’ve been wanting to sketch for awhile now and finally managed to get it done between work. He looks a little different than usual, but its Ryuuki, my lion-sona. He’s secretly a faerie but not so secretly. > u >
I’m hoping I can paint this at some point when I’m not working for eight to nine days at a time. *curses retail forever*
