My employer is looking for a freelance concept artist to do some character designs for a game. We’re shorthanded, so we’re looking for a top level artist to help design some characters. Think Dark Souls and you won’t be too far off. It’s not an anime or Warcraft look we’re going for.

Could…

Hey there, I’d be interested in applying. My online portfolio is here: http://teknicolortiger.carbonmade.com/ .

I realize I mentioned writing more about the piece when I posted these, but now I can’t for the life of me remember what it was I wanted to say.

Watership Down was one of the first novels I read as a child, probably at 10 or 12. I saw the animated film soon after, and it’s clear to me that both the book and the movie made an indelible impression on me. I reread the book every two or three years, and it hasn’t lost any of its power or impact. Most of all, I’m enthralled by the rich stories the rabbits share with one another throughout the novel. My love for mythology was certainly encouraged by reading WSD as a child.

Thanks for the wonderful response to this piece so far, you amazing folks!

Materials and dimensions and all that other good stuff can be found on the turnaround photoset that’s posted on my Tumblr, right below this post.

Please help my friend fundraise for charity!

Amur Leopards are CRITICALLY endangered, with only about 30 of them left on this Earth. By just donating a few dollars, you can help this species stay alive.

100% of ALL donations from this fundraiser are linked directly to the World Wildlife Fund (we don’t handle any of the donations ourselves, once you donate the money goes automatically to WWF) where they help to keep this species alive.

You can donate HERE. Please get this post around, lets use the power of social media to save this extremely rare species! Please reblog!

Sorry for silence on my end, folks. It’s been a very busy semester so far, and it’s made it very hard to work on any sort of art, commission or no, much to my frustration. 

Anyways, I thought it would be worthwhile to show off a little bit of progress! A long time ago, back when my friend TeknicolorTiger was developing her werewolf RP/art challenge group, Silver and Bone (which is still going strong now, BTW!) I loosely adapted one of my characters, Tonta, into a human and werewolf to use.  Recently, with an update to the group’s rules, it felt like a perfect opportunity to update my character’s refsheet as well. I love comparing these two pictures and seeing exactly where I’ve improved, especially in drawing humans.

A weird thing I find incredibly helpful for art/writing.

Eplans.com is a website that sells blueprints for houses. 

This might not seem that helpful but if you want a characters house you can make selections based on what sort of house you want them to live in.

Then browse through the results and find the house you want. Then you can view the blueprints and have a room layout for that house, which can help with visualising the space they live in.

It makes describing generic homes so much easier.

thank you

Finished the werewolf plush commission! There’s some more pix on my DA.
I went with a classic modern werewolf style, big snout, digitigrade legs and a huge tail (which also helps him stand up). The faux furs are super-good quality, a combination of silver-tipped charcoal medium short pile and a matching gray-tipped distressed long pile for the mane and accents. Lucked out with that find at the fabric store! He’s about 17 inches tall, and the bigger size let me work in some nice details like individual fingers with an opposable thumb, raised pawpads, stuffed fangs and a separate lower jaw (it’s held closed but you can still stick stuff in there). I also got to use these amazing reflective metallic eyes I bought a while back and haven’t had a critter to stick them on yet. The cats really don’t this guy - I blame the eyes. 
Was quite pleased with how it turned out, now I’m half-tempted to make another one for myself. 

I’ll take a billion.

Well, sort of. Remember that we’re primates, not carnivores, and we haven’t had substantial canine teeth for quite a few million years (it’s one of the ways you tell ape fossils from hominin fossils). Human smiles probably evolved from the fear-grin, a submissive/appeasement expression. 

I figured that much, but I just liked the concept presented here. Made me think of a particular character that likes to smile a whole lot. ^^; Also the tag to your response made me lol. #lew ruins everything XD

Human Heart, Monster Soul

Since it’s September Pre-Halloween I thought I’d start releasing some monster shirts, though the first release may be due to some minor (read: major) bias.

This werewolf tee can be purchased here, it also comes as a pillow, a Samsung Galaxy phone case, and a tote bag.

Whoa! Definitely one of the best werewolf tees I’ve seen! Will definitely buy when I have the money. :D
