Reference/character sheet for Miles the spotted hyena. Her legal name is Emilia, but I would strongly advise against calling her that.

Titties and general nakedness )

Miles is a side character in the comic project I'm developing. She's probably fun/interesting enough to be a main character, but there are only so many protagonists a project can have. Plus, she doesn't really have the complex psychological layers of the others, so... maybe she'll get her own offshoot comic someday. It'd probably be porn.

Sketch of Fall, an intersexed wolf/African wild dog. (His right arm is totally in the wrong place, isn't it.) Amazing No-Genitals version!

Ugh. Seriously, if anybody reading this has any suggestions for a free image-hosting site that doesn't demand censorship (or membership in order to view adult-flagged material), please let me know. I don't want to abandon Dreamwidth to get a Tumblr, but. This censorship bullshit is making me not want to post to this blog anymore.

I have a script for a short (13-page) comic that I've been sitting on for several years now. Ideally I'd like to complete it sometime this summer, which, given how long comics take, means starting work on it now.

I'm still trying to hammer down what sort of style I'm going to use. Right now I'm leaning toward ink, possibly with thick outlines, and greyscale marker texturing, with digital color/simple shading overlaid on that. I was given two sets of Prismacolors for christmas, warm and cool grey, and I'm itchin' to use them for something other than "just playing around".

I'm still such a rookie, though.

These are some portraits of my two main characters. Just trying to see how they translate into markers.

With digital shading & color added:

Two more One and a half more experiments with markering in fur texture and digital slaps of color:

I'm still obsessing off-and-on about this new character and figured I'd share something of him. Here's the sketch for him in his non-anthro form, which I may or may not ever use:


He's a bit fluffier than this shows, so you can't normally see his bones, but that's about how rangy he is under the fur. He's half wolf, half African wild dog.

howdy and hello there
