    Hey Kiera. Thanks for giving me that proverbial warm fuzzy feeling.

    Yeah, I guess I was around at the dawn of the internet, since about 1996 or so. Couldn't draw a proper human face to save my life back then, so I stuck to animals for a while.

    Love the artist cat thumbnail studies. Before I read I thought it was one of those "order the story" thingies.

    Feeling old yet my mate?

    "around since the dawn of the internet!!" they make it sound like it was centuries ago, I mean for heavens sake it wasnt that long ago. So we are not old ok!? I repeat we're not old bud we are just what I like to describe as "seasoned, or experienced".

    I love the painter cat by the way and the centaur guy looks like he is straight out of Disneys Fantasia, which is a compliment by the way.
    I think Fantasia was great but I must be one of the few folks on the planet who actually thinks that it is, everyone I speak about it just looks at me like I said I wanted to get into a bath of vegetable soup with thier grandmother or something even more exotic!!

    oh well enough rambling for now, love the work and please keep an old guy happy by posting loads more !! LOL
    A great kind hearted lumbering bullock

    Pinkie Pie is a big gun!

    No story, really, just a mixed team of gymnasts. The picture is from a sketchbook full of random stuff. Or do you mean the alien? I invented them back in 1992 as aliens that could coexist with humans, rather than conflict with them by default, and they had been creeping up in my work ever since.

    Well, if you consider the 1960s ARPAnet experiments, I wasn't born yet... but I think he meant the 1996 emergence of WWW in the public. In which case, yes, I've been [fooling] around since then.

    I love the painter cat by the way and the centaur guy looks like he is straight out of Disneys Fantasia, which is a compliment by the way.

    I like Fantasia too. So there are at least two of us.

    Are you familiar with the drawings by Heinrich Kley? They were most likely the inspiration for a lot of Fantasia imagery - including the centaurs and Bacchus, dancing elephants and crocodiles, and so on.

    And speaking of which, here's a sketch of a faun girl. Originally done in HB pencil, but I didn't like the too-smooth resulting look, so I redrew it more loosely with a graphite stick.

    Man, your work has so much life, I'm really impressed. I thought it couldn't get better than page 1 and then I saw your color work on page 2 and was just blown away! The dogs on the cover of your SB are an inspiration to me. They have so much energy

    Keep up the good work!

    Thanks! You flatterer...

    Let's have some more color work, then. Here's a 20-minute sketch done in ArtRage - an exercise in limited color and directional lighting.

    Virtual Pose sketches

    Recent practice sketches from Virtual Pose 2. I like the VP2 because it has black and white videos. Even with the relatively low resolution of VP2, the black and white is easier to read than color.

    Done for sake of refreshing the human anatomy, and reading the structures. Two views of the same pose, each.

    This may sound odd, but I really like how you portray the weight of flesh in your drawings, especially with these last figures. The guy's backside, thigh, and calf all show the effects of gravity on the flesh, as well as the angled lower leg, tension in the shoulder, and angled fingers of the lady. They feel grounded.

    Also, it's interesting to see the excitement and motion present in a lot of your cartoons compared against the languid contentment of the Procyonians. You really do have a way with subtly getting a point across in your art.
