I did this piece two months ago for an LGBTQ+ art show, but I was so unsatisfied with the way that it turned out that I didn’t share it. I then redrew the piece from the ground up and was still unsatisfied with the way that it had turned out, but I was out of time. The art show deadline had come and I had to submit the piece as it was. Originally I was going to title this one My Pride, but it felt like a lie because I just didn’t feel any pride in it. So I changed the title to Gay Pride. Gay Pride sold at the art show and I want to thank whoever bought it. Thank you so much for supporting this local artist it really means a lot to me. I gave it some thought and decided that just because I didn’t like my work doesn’t mean that it won’t bring joy to others. So I have finally decided to share this piece on social media. Without further ado I present Gay Pride:

On a warm summer night if you listen closely you can hear the rustling leaves, crackling magic, and the delighted squeals from pigs. Deep in the woods, you can find them, but approach slowly or they will fly off. Flying pig, arcane warlocks and witches casting growth spells and enchantments on various foliage. All of them working diligently to make this world a better place before the sun rises tomorrow.

I painted this for my nephew David whom I look forward to meeting this July. I presented this piece to my sister and brother-in-law during their baby shower and now I am sharing it with the rest of you. This one is titled Arcane Bacon.

Created this one for the Character Design Challange on FB. Went with a more tactical assassin/ Hollywood style ninja than a historically accurate one. I also stayed away from using Naruto as a reference as most people were doing that already. I also went with a bigger cat, because everyone else seemed to be creating house cat designs.

Ouch, it's been a minute since I have posted anything new. I have been working on art for the last several months, but it wasn't furry related so I didn't post it here. I decided to create and submit a piece for the Cosmic Corsair art contest on Deviant Art and wanted to see what you all thought of it.

This is Captain Julius Snow, one of the most reckless yet successful cosmic corsairs to ever sail the seven galaxies. He is from a distant planet in the Panthera System and comes from a long line of snow leopard pirates. In fact, that is his family's stock and trade.

His lucky cap was passed down through the generations and is said to have been worn by the original Captain Snow. The leopard skull medallion on the front of the hat was the original family crest before being changed to a leopard skull in front of a blue shield with an orange cross. It was decided that the crest should include the family colors and every Snow knows you defend the family colors to death so the skull was kept and placed in front. Captain Julius wears that crest on his belt buckle, on a medallion pinned to his jacket and on a patch on his leather pouch.

Captain Snow’s trusty weapon is a custom made short saber that was crafted for him when he came of age and joined the family business. Somehow it has never failed him and has always been by his side. Some people think that it is silly to keep such an old school weapon in an age where your arm can be a hand cannon, but in Captain Snow’s experience, new technology can fail you often. Despite that, he wasn’t against getting a new powerful cybernetic arm when it was shot off by a member of the Queen’s royal space fleet. And he was ecstatic when he got his new leg after it had been bitten off by a galactic shark bounty hunter.

After leaving the gaseous planet Nemo 7, Captain Snow discovers an unwelcome stowaway aboard his ship and he is looking forward to giving this creature the boot.

Whoaaa you're amazing at creating appeal! Love your sense of colours and the way you've picked them created a very unique effect. Composition and balance of details is also on point, I'm actually impressed because you've packed quite a lot of detail, but in a way that doesn't feel crammed at all.

This piece is very special to me. It is my last finished piece for 2019, it is my last entry for the anthro challenges on DA, and it is a piece that I am dedicating to my father who past away back in November, just days before Thanksgiving. I hope he is resting in peace.

Here is my interpretation of the yokai Gyokuto, the jade moon rabbit. I decided that it would be fun to make him a defender of the earth after being placed on the moon.

Legend has it that a fox, a monkey, and a rabbit were traveling in the mountains when they came across a shabby-looking old man lying along the road. The old man had collapsed from exhaustion while trying to cross the mountains. The three animals felt compassion for the old man and tried to save him. The monkey gathered fruit and nuts from the trees, the fox gathered fish from the river, and they fed the old man. As hard as he tried, the rabbit, however, could not gather anything of value to give to the old man. Lamenting his uselessness, the rabbit asked the fox and monkey for help in building a fire. When the fire was built, the rabbit leaped into the flames so that his own body could be cooked and eaten by the old man. When the old man saw the rabbit’s act of compassion, he revealed his true form as Taishakuten, one of the lords of Heaven. Taishakuten lifted up the rabbit and placed it on the moon, in order that all future generations could be inspired by the rabbit’s compassionate act. The reason it is sometimes difficult to see the rabbit in the moon is because of the smoke which still billows from the rabbit's body, masking his form somewhat.
