I made this little doodle a while back while wondering what Inuyasha would look like as a full youkai. I didn't want him to have an outfit or a mokomoko (aka "The Fluff) like Sesshoumaru. I just wanted Inuyasha, as he usually is... only youkai. It's not much difference, but it satisfied my curiosity. And, I needed to get out my Prismacolor pencils again. So, there you go.

Just my version of how Inuyasha would look in modern clothes. I wasn't terribly happy with the earlier version of this image, so this is a revised one. I added some details to Inuyasha himself and took a stab at a real background. Thanks to Sage for suggesting a city scene.

Just a little sketch of the PastMaster that I have a quick coloring job in Painter. I deliberately left the original sketch visible just to see how it would look, and I liked the results well enough.

Kagome gives Inuyasha a little head/ear rub. There are things about the drawing I'm not happy with anymore as I started this image probably almost a year ago. But, I used it to explore Painter 7 a little more, and I'm reasonably happy with the coloring job.

Shippou looks at the night sky, thinking of his father.

This actually started as practice for making starfields, following the tutorial by Greg Martin. Then, it grew into this. This is my first posted image created entirely in the computer, Shippou sketch and everything. There are still things about Shippou and the grass in particular that I'm not happy with... but I can't put my finger on the problem and I've been toying with it for days. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

My rather late Christmas image for the year. This started as a doodle on Sage's Christmas card and turned into this after some fiddling in Photoshop. I attempted to do it in full color first, but I wasn't very happy with it. After some toying and the scanning of my mother's snowflake-shaped trivet, this was the final result.

My Christmas present to my bosses - a picture of their beagle, Buster. Done with Prismacolor pencils. I've set it as "work in progress" for the moment as there are still some touchups I'd like to make since I still have to get it framed as well.

Wow, I should have uploaded this months ago. Ah well... Here's a semi-quickie I worked up in Painter this October. I mainly used it to experiment with the program, but I think it came out okay.

Just a glorified doodle of a child Inuyasha. Yes, I used Photoshop's leaf brush excessively. It's a cheat, and I know it, but, dangit, I've been itching to use that brush in a finished piece for months. I love that brush.

A human Inuyasha carrying a wounded Kagome. Not sure what happened, but Inuyasha sure isn't happy about it. I intend to do a color version of this, but I ended up pretty happy with my inked version, so I just added some adjustments to it and, well, here it is.

Ever woken up in the middle of the night and just known you'd heard something? Originally a little quick sketch of a girl and her teddy bear, this one's come a long way... And, it's aaaalmost done now.

And, just when Ross thought I'd forgotten him... No better way to assure a character and story idea that you still remember them than to send an enemy crashing in. So, here's one cybernate ripping through the protective energy dome that surrounds the last free cities on Ross' planet. Yeps. Just a story idea I've been batting around for a while now.

It may be a nasty, rainy day, but it doesn't seem to be dampening Callie's spirits much! Callie Briggs is from the series "SWAT Kats: The Radical Squadron." (Prismacolor markers, Photoshop, and Painter 7)

An illustration from last year that I finally scanned. It was supposed to be like a page from a children's alphabet book, as you might guess. This is one that I still like pretty good.

This has been a really frustrating piece for me. I've been working on it as a potential piece for my portfolio (now, there's a laughable idea) for the last several weeks. I'm starting to view it more as a learning experience than something I'll ever want in the portfolio. But, at least it is good for that much, and I do still like the concept behind it.

However, I'm rather stumped as to the handling of the water and sky. I've been told both that the sky needs to be darker and more threatening and that it needs more color. I'm not at all sure how to balance those two notions and any suggestions would be welcomed.

Lil' Byte, originally created to be a pseudo-CyberKat trojan program to infiltrate Dark Kat's lair, snuggles the raccoon that plagues the MBI's donut supply. He may have finally met his match. Hmm... I feel like you should be able to see some of his "hand" or at least more of his arm/front leg there coming out from under Byte's arms... but I'm not sure where.

Image inspired by the MegaKat Bureau of Investigation/SWAT Kats Crossover RPG. Title inspired by a comment from Lil' Byte's creator/player Klawz. (Photoshop - Wacom-traced over the original pencil drawing)

A scene from Felicia McFurry's SWAT Kat fanfic "The Fatal Mistake," chapter five of her self-titled saga. Donning a vigilante's mask, Felicia McFurry vows that, if there is any way in her power to stop them, Dark Kat and Turmoil will never take away someone she loves again.

Ah, now a pic for the Jake/Callie fans. Kinda overly sappy, but I still think it's cute. And, I like how Jake came out... and, well, something had to break my drawing funk.
