Work in Progress: Senefer

Work in Progress: Senefer

I draw just about every character I roleplay in ongoing campaigns, but I looked at my portfolio recently and said to myself, “Kira, nearly all your character designs have blank white backgrounds. It’s BORING. How about giving them a background or a setting or something?” So when I sketched Senefer, my paladin-turned-bard, for the first […]

Sennefer the Former Gifted Kid Paladin

Sennefer

I’ve never been tempted to play a paladin before. They’re bound by such tight moral codes that they never seemed like they’d be much fun to roleplay, especially since the people I tend to game with are the sort who ask questions like “do I have time to remove this corpse’s teeth?” I mean, who […]

Caracala

Caracala

I’m teaching myself to paint digitally in Adobe Fresco, and lately the Boy and I have been sharing videos of caracals and their crazy ears. This is the first character design I’ve done that’s 100% digital. I started with a pose reference photo of a violin player and built up from there.

Griffin, Griffon, or Gryphon?

Griffin, Griffon, or Gryphon?

I first saw it spelled “griffin,” but if you learned about this mythical creature from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, you probably called it a “gryphon.” I’ve seen other spellings over the years, and I figured when griffins get drunk they go on rants about how even they don’t know how to spell their name properly […]

Come Play in the Snow

Come Play in the Snow

Many years ago, I drew a friend’s dragon character and learned the hard way to never, ever, ever try and draw every single scale. About halfway through this snow leopard, I wondered whether I had made a similar mistake. She’s worth it though, and she knows it.

Moufeau

Moufeau

I went to a shitty high school that seriously lacked creative stimulation. Needless to say, I doodled a lot on my papers. My sophomore year, I started drawing these furry, two-legged creatures at the bottom of French tests, each labeled “Le Moufeau.” It got to the point where I was rushing to finish tests so […]

When a Bat and a Pangolin Love Each Other Very Much…

When a Bat and a Pangolin Love Each Other Very Much...

With bats and pangolins in the news a lot, a friend went looking for bat/pangolin hybrid furries online and was disappointed that none turned up. So she tagged me on Facebook and I promptly filled this void. You’re welcome, internet.

Moufeau Tonsorial Tips

I went to a shitty high school that seriously lacked creative stimulation. Needless to say, I doodled a lot on my papers. My sophomore year, I started drawing these furry, two-legged creatures at the bottom of French tests, each labeled “Le Moufeau.” I tried to draw a different one on each test. I drew this […]

King of the Flames

King of the Flames

My therapist suggested I scribble with crayons to loosen up before drawing. I had lions on the brain that night.

Some extremely talented friends tapped me to illustrate their online erotic story game. I jumped at the chance.
