At Conifur this year, I took up a pen and tried copying my con badges - one by Michele Light and one by Max Blackrabbit. I think they came out pretty good, actually. Smile Today, I went and got myself a sketchpad and tried copying a torso by Polecat, and drawing my feet while sitting in bed with the pad.

Keep in mind that I have only done one drawing before in my entire life - the rest has either been technical drawings (drafting), or it's been absolute crap. But somehow, I managed to find a muse at Conifur, and here are the results.

(I did the picture of my feet in about half an hour, by the way.)

Lemme know what you think. Smile And if you'd like to see the references for the con badges, check out my Characters Page under Kiefer the Skunk. Smile

I second that!

Could I borrow a pint of artistic talent?

Shocked Surprised Pretty good. Definitly enough talent to become a great artist with a bit more practice. Very Happy

I just drew another one today, of one of my coworkers here at work. We both had some downtime, so he was out reading a magazine in a beanbag chair and I think I captured him on paper pretty well.

I'll see if I can get it posted up soon.

I have a few new sketches up in the same place. An XBOX kiosk, a DDR machine, and an albino ferret. Smile

The other evening, I did a couple of sketches of my newest friend, Firebringer, a shapeshifting unicorn. These are officially my first and second truly furry sketches, and also the first pieces of art that I drew from scratch, as opposed to copying an existing photo or drawing. I'm actually quite happy with how they came out, even with all their imperfections. Smile

Also, this page is now officially linked from the Furry Chars section of my site. Smile

I must say, Firebringer is quite an inspiring force here. She's really encouraging me to keep drawing, giving me some pointers, and practically begging me to draw more of her characters/forms. If this keeps up, I might have to get myself a VCL folder or a spot on AfterDark.

A few more images went up a couple days ago - this time, a bunnygirl, a cat in a box (excessive cuteness - complimentary toothpaste is supplied), and a cat at a drawing table. Smile

Two new sketches have been posted. A third one of Firebringer, and a generic skunk-fox-type-furry thingy that has some decent fur texturing going on. Lemme know what you think.

And today I traced, inked and Photoshop-colored the Firebringer sketch and made it a more-or-less complete picture! Check out the Sketches page and lemme know what you think!

I'm looking into getting some gallery software for my site so I can create a real Art section, now that I'm starting to do this more. This is fun! Smile

Very nice indeed, Keifer. I saw it via the link she had on her LJ.
