Just a collection of some old and new works of mine. I'll add to this as I draw more.

Face Painting (Er... Hand Painting)
Spoiler:
All of these characters were done as Christmas gifts for friends.
Spoiler:

Spoiler:

My Fursona
Spoiler:
First, and so far only, drawing of Aquaflame the otter, my fursona.
Spoiler:

Miscellaneous
Spoiler:
A birthday gift that was for two of my friends, who are brothers. The younger brother's birthday was last month, but I couldn't get a drawing done in time, so I combined their gifts into one. The characters were created by the older brother. The Hats are the antagonists, the Penguins the protagonists. The blue penguin is Penguin, the purple one is Junior Wing, and the grey one is Viglend.
Spoiler:

A birthday gift for my sister. The person is her, and the horse in the background is Queenie, a horse that used to partially belong to her.
Spoiler:

A birthday drawing of Sunset, a friend's old character from a Warrior Cats RP on Feral Heart.
Spoiler:

Meka, the weapon/pet of Alex, a friend's character. I drew this as a birthday present for him.
Spoiler:

A birthday present for one of my more hyper friends; I changed the nyan cat around so it would be her fursona, Artemis.
Spoiler:

A hummingbird I drew for a friend.
Spoiler:

Ribjulex's weapons; Ribjulex is a friend's character.
Spoiler:

A bit of a rushed Hamster; the person I was drawing it for was getting ready to go to bed, so I didn't have time to make it perfect.
Spoiler:

Sketchy, a friend's stick figure character.
Spoiler:

An octopus I drew as a birthday present for a friend.
Spoiler:

Space Kitty Speckles~
Spoiler:

I drew this as a birthday present for a close friend. As you've probably guessed from the character, it's for the same person the last hedgehog was for.
Spoiler:

We were supposed to draw a "Wacky Sandwich" in Art class to practice shading with colors, so I drew mine with all of the Zodiac animals in it, plus a cat cause Fruits Basket :3
Spoiler:

A dove I drew in Art class using white chalk pencils on a black paper.
Spoiler:

Random bunny in a snuggie I drew.
Spoiler:

A birthday gift for a friend. I'm not completely sure why I drew her as a green wolf... It just seemed to fit her.
Spoiler:

Joey, an injured crow I took care of for a short time.
Spoiler:

A birthday gift for a friend. The deal with this one is, he goes by Kyubi, Kitsune, Kyu, etc., but I call him PYP, aka Pink and Yellow Panda. Therefore, he is a pink and yellow panda with a foxy disguise.
Spoiler:

What happens when boredom strikes...
Spoiler:

A birthday gift for an old internet friend.
Spoiler:

My first semi-successful anime style character. I totally forgot to do any kind of shading on her hair XD Her name is Nadia Character, and if you've seen Chrono Crusade, she's my idea of what Chrono and Rosette's daughter would look like, if they had ever had children. I'll probably write a fanfic about her sooner or later.
Spoiler:

Very quickly drawn alicorn I drew for a friend. I may go back and redraw it someday. Dunno, though.
Spoiler:

A drawing of a friend's fursona for her birthday.
Spoiler:

My character Shadowsight in The Wonderful Beginning RP on Feral Heart.
Spoiler:

A dragon I drew in art class. It was a bit rushed, since my teacher needed it for a grade almost immediately. It's based off of the Flight Rising's Shadowbinder design, with some changes since I didn't have time to do it as a full on Shadowbinder.
Spoiler:

A redraw of an older piece called Obscured Light.
Spoiler:

This one's called Empty Soul. Everything in the drawing symbolizes something about a struggle I recently went through.
Spoiler:

My personal logo/watermark I put on most of my digital work, when I actually remember to.
Spoiler:

A derp penguin I drew when I was trying out my tablet for the first time.
Spoiler:

A Christmas present for a very good friend of mine who's helped me through a lot of difficult times in life.
Spoiler:

I was very, very happy with how this one turned out. I drew it for the Something About Dragons contest Flight Rising held awhile back. It's their character, Windsinger. The poem is by me as well.

Mmm, a nice big gallery to enjoy. n_n;

Really though, it's nice to be able to scroll through a collection, you know? Anyway, I'll start off by asking, are your drawings in any particular order (like oldest to newest)? If so, I'd say it's pretty clear that you've improved a lot with your digital skills. Some of the first Pokemon drawings have a sketchiness to them (which may be deliberate, idk) but later drawings seem more polished and refined.

I think this one is my favorite, honestly. The colors really read traditional Japanese to me, and there's a flow to it that I find very aesthetically pleasing. Not to mention the poem. I'm no writer, but I can definitely appreciate the effort it took! If you don't mind me asking, did you draw the dragon in your signature? I'd love to see the whole piece. :3

I also have to commend you on your hand.. work? The art on your hands. Lol, I don't know how to word it, but you know what I'm talking about. :p It must have been very difficult to draw on such an uneven surface and the quality of your lines is very impressive given the medium.

Honestly, the best advice I can give is to keep drawing! n_n; I hope you continue to update this gallery cause you've got a lot of really great stuff here.

It's mostly newest to oldest, with a few mix-ups here and with some mix-ups here and there since I can't always recall what order I did the work in, and most of my traditional art doesn't get scanned until quite awhile after it's done, meaning newer digital art sometimes gets in first.

I did draw the dragon in my signature, however I didn't draw a full piece of it. Just enough to make a banner, since I was kinda rushing it. The background is a map Swiftsign made me for my RP. I do plan to redraw it someday, though, as a full picture~

It's not that hard, really XD I'm currently working as a face painter, so I've had quite a bit of practice. I do have a photo of a dragon head I painted as well, but I haven't been able to dig it up.

Got some more art to add~

This is what happens when I get bored in class...
Spoiler:

I actually drew these a few months ago, but forgot about them and just noticed them still sitting on my dresser, unscanned. They're all species I've created.
Spoiler:
Marusmine

Spoiler:
Tralvak

Spoiler:
The coloration on this one may look a little strange, but that's because I was trying to decide what suited it best. Tis called pireel.

Spoiler:
Flariss


Hmm... Just a question... Are the last two pictures (should be a blue hedgehog and a dragon) not showing up for anyone else, or is my computer just not loading them? Just to clarify, I mean in the gallery, not this post XD

This here's Joey, an injured crow I was taking care of for a couple days. We wrapped his right wing with gauze, since the bone in it was torn almost completely off and we didn't want anything happening to it before we could get him some proper care. We dropped him off at a Wildlife Rescue and Rehabilitation center earlier today. I totally forgot to get a photo of him, but here's a drawing I did from memory.
Spoiler:

Oh, and... Pink and yellow panda :3 And a nine tailed fox. A birthday present for a friend.

i liked looking at all of the photos of your art. you have a wide variety of different things to look at(: the first two of the pokemon have to be my favorite. the shading is pretty good and the drawing of the first one looks complicated to me lol.
your species you made are pretty cool, just wish they were a little darker or maybe more to them since they seem a little plain.
your face paintings are great, wish i could do something like that!
can't wait to see more!

The quality with these is terrible cause I had to take photos of them with my phone... They're too large to scan at home, so until I can get to a store and scan them, this'll have to do. They were both done in Art class before winter break. I just didn't get them back from my teacher until today.

This one was titled "Peace". I had like, five seconds to come up with the title, so nyeh... XD I did it with a white chalk pencil, using this as a reference. It was displayed both at my school's art show near the end of the year and at a nearby art gallery along with art done by other students.
Spoiler:

This one doesn't really have a name. Unless you wanna call it Zodiac Sandwich, then nyeh. It has all the animals of the Zodiac in it, plus a cat cause Fruits Basket :3 The point of the project in class was to practice shading with colored pencils. This one was also showed in the school art show, though it didn't make it to the gallery.
Spoiler:

I'm gonna try to organize the gallery a bit more, so people aren't stuck loading a bunch of images when they open a single spoiler.

I can see improvement specifically in your feline art. The anatomy is more accurate. [:

Also, by chance, is the name "Shadowsight" based off a book series?

Yeah, I'm trying to work my felines a little more. I've got a lot of feline characters I wanna draw. And, it is indeed, though the name is my own. It's based off of the naming system in the Warriors series.

I think you've done a great job in establishing the proper proportions in the drawings and the colours seem pretty spot on. My only gripe is that you make the outlines smaller, or perhaps even non existent, and just imply the shape of the drawing with shading, or an outline made up of a different shade of the colour it touches.

But that's just me. Anyway, pretty great stuff, keep it up, man!

About the outlines, are you talking about on the traditional or digital drawings? o.o If you mean the traditional, it may just be because when I scan the pictures they show up a bit faded on the computer. If you mean the digital ones, on some of my earlier ones I did just use darker colors for the outlining rather than black, but I've switched to using black outlines now.

Thanks~ I've been face painting for a few years. It's nice when someone says they like it :D Especially at parties I paint at. Usually I'm in the background while everyone's crowding around my dad who does does the balloons, but on occasion I'm the star of the show o3o

Every is really very nice and neat.
If the border was more thinner it would have been more awesome.

Keep it up!
