Last one, and then its time to get back to work. Funny, last one posted was the first one completed.This one was actually the first one planned, but it took a while to get the darn sketch to match what I had in mind, and after that, I was afraid to paint the creek! XDIt came out a little bluer than I would have liked, when compared to the greenish grey of the other two, but oh well, I think it still came out nice.

Number two of the three paintings for K22. This time with friends.
This one was a trial, because there are, like…24 captive mink in his group, and while not all of them are more than mentioned by name, they all have unique coats. And Jen and I had to go through some of the more prominant characters and decide who matched this picture best :| I wanted to use B32, who acts as K22’s closest friend, but his coat is brown, and when I did a photoshop mockup of this with him in it, he ended up drawing all the attention and looking like the main character…Sooo we had to pick again.

One of three paintings I did for K22, a story I’ve been tinkering with for about a year. Unfortunately, I haven’t had time to work on any of my personal projects that much in the last year, between work….work…travel time GETTING to work….freelance work….and work. But since I’m literally once scene shy of finishing my last freelance project for the moment, I took a break to do these. And thanks to my awesome brother helping me replace my dying laptop, my new one is easier to work with in the car, So I’ve been taking that awful hour drive to work and using it to write. So it all works out.
Anyways, this is K22 here; just a typical black American Mink. Unfortunately for him and his friends, American Mink do not belong in Europe, so this story is more of a realistic animal tragedy.

I made myself finish another page this weekend, since I have them off work. I had fun with this, I love my hyaenas.
From the topLittle Hyaena, Meridian HyaenaGreater Hyaena (Courier’s Hyaena), New Forest HyaenaJangwan Hyaena, Island HyaenaSome older hyaena art can be seen here, here, here, and here, including a page from the mini comic I’ve been working on regarding the Courier’s Hyaena and the Pony Express style work they do.
I need to finish that darned mini comic…:| among the numerous other things I need to do…These beasties were inspired largely by creodonts (namely hyaenodon, hence my odd spelling of hyaena), but also great danes, pit bulls, The Pony Express and its horses, arabian oryx, okapi, bongo, leopard seals….there was a LOOOOT of creatures thrown in the blender for these things :|

I hate scanning in sections…We either need a bigger scanner, or I need to stop buying large sketchbooks :|
I bought this nice watercolor sketchbook, and told myself i was going to devote it to painting an animal library from Ventus…That was…like…six months ago :| This is the only page I’ve finished, and I finished it last night.
Things have just been busy :/
Anyways, by request of Boarfeathers (who loves pigs) I did pigs first. I like the Snow Hog, its fur came out really neat.
Designs inspired by numerous pigs (obviously :|) tapir, buffalo, and probably numerous other things that I can’t remember right now :| That’s what I get for waiting six months to finish one damn page.

I was bored at work and had five minutes till closing and nothing left to do. 

Drawing an awkward lynx seemed like the only logical solution.

Panel from a parody comic Boarfeathers and I are working on; I mentioned it before when I posted this, but it hasn’t been worked on in a while due to…life….anyways
I’m 110% sure any gamer who has played a game like Elder Scrolls has dealt with situations similar to this. Walk five feet from an enemy while running from another enemy….lead a parade into the nearest town :|
Poor Max.

I’m making a thing to add to my bridle. It looks REALLY cool when its all put together; a little smaller than I would have liked, but I was using leather I had on HAND, cause I can’t afford to go buy more at the moment.
Part of a project thing I’m working on for our MMCG event this summer. Starting now cause I have limited time to work on it BEFORE this summer :|

REALLY fast rough painting scribbles because I can.

We were outside today, planting trees and cleaning up the yard…and we decided to scour out behind the tool shed….It was awful. Our past renters treated the house like dirt (which is what we came back too, and if you knew my mom, you’d know that this is shocking compared to the lush garden she left the house with.) so this back corner that no one could see became a trash heap. Literally. trash, buried in dead weeds, buried in trash, hidden under tumble weeds that grew OVER THE FENCE. 

It really didn’t take long to clean up, but Jen asked mum what she planned on doing with that corner…it was always tool storage when her ex-husband (my atrocious step-father) lived with us. Mom had no plans, so she gave it to us to do as we please.

So we’re HOPING to turn it into a little art/writing/relaxing nook, since we can’t really retreat to such a place IN the house. Mobiles don’t really offer that much space wise. We’re thinking something like picture two; lay down some sod or something that’s healthier than what’s currently BACK there, lots of moss and sedum sarmentosum, some stepping stones, definitely a table and some chairs….

And Jen’s found a LOT of these neat ‘jazz up your yard’ things lately, like sticking glass marbles in the fence. The other side of our back fence is a HUGE open field (we live right on the edge of our residential area, and that’s on a hill)…literally all that’s out there is grass and the dog park. So there’s LOTS of sun to come through the marbles if we do that. We want to stick up a trellis at the end between the corner of the shed and the fence, some lattice and some viney plants. 

And somehow, someday, I WANT A FOUNTAIN :|

We’re essentially turning it into our spring project. We have a lot of what we need, and as mom works at Tractor Supply, we can easily get what we don’t have. We’re hoping to start this week, and get as much of it done as we can before June/July (when my sister apparently invited my grandmother to visit. She owns our house, so we’re (I’m…) shamefully trying to show off. XD)
