Kal_dingo commission by Canis-ferox
Kal_dingo commission
Commission for   kal_dingo on FA! And I spent at least approximately 100% of the money earned here on buying eye drops wow. I'm glad I opened commissions haha.

I draw a lot.
Most of these are things I'd like to see finished at some point, and some of them are just idle sketches or concepts that don't need to go any farther. My hangup on a lot of them is colors, colors are hard to figure out for environments.

I numbered a few:

1.) Just a nice chill portrait of Storm. Thinking of probably going to a hazel type color for her eyes (they used to be mint green and it never looked natural). I forgot her lightest markings here but they are staying part of her design.

2.) Tundra tracking a deer-- from the look on her face I'm going to guess a big one :U She's most likely hunting with a bow, by the way. Apparently I tried something different with her hand markings too and just now remembered that I did that. I don't know if it'll stick. also her muzzle is too long

3.) Deer mode Erin again. Apparently she's some kind of white-tailed looking thing now? as before I took some liberties with the eyes. The color scheme here doesn't satisfy me completely. This is after heavy editing of it too--originally it had greens similar to the one right below it, just not as good.

4.) I was drawing Storm post-half-ear-loss (because I did figure out that that occurs as a part of her story) and when I was drawing on the facial pant it seemed like it would be neat if it was kind of dripping. Then my playlist hit some music I used to listen to back in high school and I remembered always wanting to draw Storm in a storm being angry haha. So I embraced that cliche hard.

5.) This is the odd one out in having been drawn over a year ago. If I continue with it it's going to need some reworking, in terms of anatomy and such. But it has some quality to it I really like still.

6.) Meant to have pictures of this guy done in time to post for Halloween (it's /kind of/ like a zombie I guess but not really? It is mostly undead though)
I'm thinking of making its eye a little more of a rust color. More on it later potentially. Nailing down its look has always been a challenge. I've started sketching it with wavy horns like this and I have to say I really like them that way :>

7.) A picture I've been wanting to do for a long time is Tundra and Storm playing around in a lake and fishing. the water and mud are definitely too grayish right now but I'm liking the arrangement and their poses.

And then there's some random Rooks, Erins and a Tundra kind of sprinkled throughout. I kind of really like the one of Rook in the suit. Because he looks like he specifically showed up just to judge this whole thing.

With so many things to pick from it's hard to choose one to commit to at a time. Anything you guys find particularly interesting here, and/or anything you'd especially like to see continued? Doesn't have to be a numbered one either. I'd love to hear your opinions! ^^

(mostly social and school work related.)
This is a sketch from the beginning of the semester actually but I dug it up again because I relate to it again right now hahaa... and I was surprised by how much I still liked it. So instead of throwing it in a sketchdump like I thought I would eventually do here it is on its own.
Drawing Erin anthro is tricky sometimes but sometimes successful. \o/

Sorry comments haven't been answered yet--they will be! Just writing papers right now D: I think it's just getting to that point in the semester. Plus one of my classes is pretty group-work-heavy right now and ugh. no please.
Yeah just a general purpose journal update that will contain all those things, not necessarily in that order :> I'm gonna go ahead and apologize; I have one more trade coming as I said, but it may be a little more of a wait than I anticipated. I've been sick for about a month, and it turns out what I thought was a particularly persistent cold miiight possibly be pneumonia. I won't be back at college (and my art computer) till tuesday since I'm skipping monday (not having tuesday classes at all is amazing). This does mean missing a midterm and I don't look forward to that, but hey maybe I can get it at some time /other/ than 8AM now :U 8AM isn't the best time for a midterm. I'm not a person before at least 9AM. Some of the medicines I'm using right now (the breathing treatment, ugh) make my hands really jittery too so that'll be something to work around. I'll do my best though! ^^ I have made so many typos today asdfg I love spellcheck.
(Edit: Two trades! Oh my gosh I can't believe I drew a sketch to one and forgot. But that will get done. xD  Also, not pneumonia! Yay! :D)

Yesterday though my brother gave me a skull he found in the woods and it's a coyote : D It's just so beautiful and unexpected. I've never given any of my skulls names before but this one almost makes me want to start. I just wanna show it off to you guys. So I got them all together for a picture since I've never actually done that before.

The left coyote skull is the one from the woods; it's weathered to a sort of gray color which is really interesting and reminds me of that clay that's supposed to imitate stone. It's missing all its teeth except for the carnassials and molars, and also doesn't have a lower jaw. But I mean it's an incredibly lucky find as it is. The one to the right of it is from northern Indiana, I got it at some small town street fair thing we happened upon. It has all its teeth, the jaws are hinged together with some kind of flexible bone glue, and has made for fantastic drawing reference. Judging by the wear on the teeth (or lack of) both seem to have come from fairly young animals. Then there's a turtle skull that I found at a large lake, and I'm still surprised we managed to find the lower jaw too. It was in the sand a good distance away. The rabbit I found in a field one day I think. It has all its teeth they just fell out, and I don't trust myself to slip them all back in for the picture at the moment. The mouse was on a shelf in a machine shop (there's a skeleton that goes with it but I'm not about to try to position all those tiny fragile bones right now), and the white-tailed deer was a gift from my papaw. He just hung the head in a tree for years until it was clean haha. Like I'm pretty sure I remember it being there all throughout my childhood, just casually in a tree at the edge of the property. Then he eventually decided it was clean enough and gave it to me. xD Behind all the skulls is a shed antler that I think one of the dogs might have found and then got tired of. It makes a fantastic back scratcher.
You know, in case you just wanted to know the stories behind all the animal skulls I own. I don't know. I'm kind of waiting for my hands to be steady enough so I can try to paint. Which I don't think is actually going to happen at all today. I'm just killing time at this point.

And now a feature! Pretty simple, the standard setup: if I feature you I'd like you to do a feature as well putting me in one of the slots (you don't really have to though, haha). For the first ten people to comment I'm going to feature your icon and three pieces I like from your gallery.

Hello = D
I draw things and write stuff and I also do photography and sometimes photomanipulation and sculpture. If you like any of those things (as well as canids, there are a lot of canids here) please do have a look around =]

If you see my art posted somewhere other than this gallery, please let me know about it. Odds are, the poster stole it. I don't really allow people to use my art. I mostly do art for personal reasons, and that which is not personal was probably done for someone else who wouldn't appreciate depictions of their characters being used either.

tl;dr, please do not use my work without my express permission.

Also, please note that I do not take requests.

... and please stop thanking me for the fave. :iconrookstaresplz:
You are however permitted to thank me in poetic form.
