(Because these are scattered across my drives it's difficult to find them in proper order, the DA backups as well do not have the original dates on them any more.)

Some of my earliest attempts at digital art, I started with a mouse (green dragon) but got a tablet a few years later (purple dragon).
I also did some small animations from time to time.

(I've found even more dragons in my archives that I haven't posted yet, - shocking I know.)

A purple wyvern coiled up mid flight on a purple background.
A green eastern dragon looking at the viewer. His head, shoulder and left hand are in frame in the foreground and his tail is seen curling around in the background. Background itself is a sunset purple-pink gradient.
A rough animated gif of a fluffy quadruped creature sitting down and attempting to catch something, slapping at the ground. At the end of the animation it opens up the paws to it being gone.
(I never finished drawing in the 'something')

Even moar dragons!

Some really old scans that I found forgotten in a folder, I just liked drawing creatures, and wings and stuff, also noodly dragons were a favourite because you can make such fun shapes with them. :ablobcatbongo:

I can still remember other art I had as I look through these, which is why I keep digging around. I'm sure I'll have tracked them all down soon... :artpeek:

#OldArt #Sketches #TraditionalArt

A page with two images of the same dragon, one is a loose sketch of a grumpus from the chest up, the other is a finished inked and coloured drawing of a floating dragon looking cute.
The dragon is blue with a icy-white mane running all the way from the head to tailtip, it has fluffy ears and two black horns, light blue feathered wings and two long whiskers.
A pencil drawing of a small dragon standing on a branch.
The dragon is standing upright and is seen to be a little fluffy with anatomy similar to that of a cat, the wings are made up of three long spines each with webbing inbetween, it also has similar webbed ears and a spiny mane that ends at the shoulders. The tail has webbed spines running from just behind the legs towards the end of the tail. The tailtip is a little bit fluffy.
A pencil drawing of a long noodly eastern-style dragon lying down, curled up on itself in a loose figure 8, reading a book.
A pencil sketch of a dragon lying on a rock, the dragon is drawn at a 3/4 angle facing to the viewer's left. It has crossed arms in front and the back legs sitting up on the higher end of the rock. It has feathered wings, a long mane running from the head to the tailtip and two long whiskers.

Digging through my old files I found a few more sketches of my dragon chara.
I was really trying to find a style I liked for her, but I just couldn't hammer it out properly. I wanted something I could easily chibi-fy for silly little doodles etc. but nothing really clicked.
And, like everyone else with a character, I tried adding personal touches to the design as well. Everything was very well thought out, but still, I just didn't have the connection I saw others have.


Three different black and white sketches of the same little dragon character, looking to the viewer's left. Two are sitting down and have basic pencil shading, and one is standing up with her arms behind her back and is plain lineart.
A shaded pencil drawing of a dragon's face, she's lying on the ground looking at the viewer, both paws placed down just in front of her face. The tail is leaning over the paw on the viewer's right and the fluff on the tail tip is flowing over the head and the paw on the viewer's left. The tail shaded in a way to frame the face in the picture, the upper half of it fading into the background.
Design sketches of a dragon character, on the left side are a few very loose pencil sketches, with only vague forms and pose structures visible. On the right hand side are more refined sketches of an anthro dragon's upper torso and wings and a (disembodied) lower body half with most of a tail drawn on.

#ArtAdventCalendar Day 2.

Photoshop CS2, 2014. This one was a quick study that I've never really posted since, as it felt fairly unfinished. It was inspired by the Akira Kurosawa film "Ran" (1985) that I had seen for the first time that week. The imagery just stayed with me so much that I bashed this out from my head in a couple of hours.

No print of this one, but you can get others here:

A painterly digital image of steep grassy hills, with piles of clouds against a blue sky. On one of the foreground hills, three wind blown, vertical banners are stuck in the ground, one yellow, one red and one blue, with different symbols on each - three stripes, a crescent moon, and a circle.

#ArtAdventCalendar Day 1!

(See here for what on earth this is all about: )

Starting with an early one, from 2013, Photoshop CS2. I had just started getting into digital painting, and this was a breakthrough piece for me. It took many hours of painstaking zooming in, which I probably wouldn't do these days, but I'm still happy with how it looks.
Print available in my INPRNT shop:

Just as I'd gotten good at doodling my derpy bear, BfA dropped, and (belatedly) with it, the Kul Tirans.
And holy shit did I fall in love. Not just with the druid forms, but the ladies! I finally saw a humanoid model I actually really loved. I was ecstatic, - but really, really bad at drawing humans...

So to start with, I tried to get familiar with the bear form, since I was maining tank anyways, and it took a fair while to get everything to 'click'. But eventually it did.


A Kul Tiran druid bear form headshot, the character is looking up and to the viewer's right, It has a skull for a face and a scruffy grey-blue mane with bone spikes poking out here and there.
It is staring at a blue butterfly sat on it's nose and blepping.
A front-on symmetrical headshot of a Kul Tiran bear form, its head is a skull with wooden horns, a ghostly green glow in the eye sockets and nose, with green glowy mist spilling out from it's open mouth. The mane is scruffy grey-blue with bone spikes poking out here and there. An acorn necklace is visible half-buried in the mane.
A shoulders-up digital drawing of a Kul Tiran druid bear form making a silly 'bad joke husky' pose. The character is facing to the viewer's left and has the mouth wide open in a silly grin.
The face is a skull with wooden horns, ghostly green glow in the eye sockets and nose hole. The mane is scruffy, blue-grey and has bone spikes poking out here and there. A leather strap crosses over the chest and back and an acorn necklace can be seen poking out from the mane.
A side-on digital illustration of a Kul Tiran bear druid standing on all fours, facing to the viewer's left. The bear's face is a skull with a ghostly green glow emanating from within and wooden horns. A scruffy blue-grey mane encircles the neck and runs along the back to the stubby tail. Bone spikes and spines poke out from the mane here and there as well as along the spine. A leather belt encircles the body and crosses over the chest and back. The limbs are wooden and twist and blend into the flesh closer to the body.

Having gotten more confident in drawing my druid, I made a proper ref image, after which I got heavily into making stickers.
Then I decided to re-colour them and pack them into Telegram packs in case anyone else wanted them.
For consistency purposes I also made a colour palette for myself, with the base and line colours, and to make sure I knew what was what I made little icons I could use for colour dropping.

So, having settled on using my derpy druid as an avatar I set out to redraw All The Memes! Lots of silly fun, and I grew really attached to the big bear.
I also used the art in splash screens and thumbnails for my WoW raid recordings.

I believe at this point I had already abandoned DA thanks to them constantly serving up malware to my pc through their adverts. I gave up after realizing that my weekly ritual of disinfecting my pc was their fault.

I think we all have that one older artwork that we still really like. For me, it's this one. Drew this back in July 2017. I just really love the face, hair, shading, colors, the pose, like the whole thing ;; Still makes me happy looking at it. :)

She has an eye patch over one eye and various gold accessories. She's holding a red lollipop.

Been digging through my folders, some art was missing from my DA backup folder but luckily I tracked some of it down on my pc.

Some more WoW fanart, my favourite were ofc. Bear and Moonkin, this was still pre-BfA so I was still very not happy with the Nelf model.
Worgen got introduced, and I was really tempted to race change, but the female model looked nothing like a werewolf, and I wasn't sure which was worse, - bouncy boobs or rabid chihuahua.

So just Bear then.

As the years passed (years!) and I mained my druid, I started using the Night Elf bear form for myself online. I never resonated with the Nelf humanoid model, it was just too skimpy and bouncy and just - not me.
But a derpy fluffy bear? Absolutely. I was very fond of my character, and the bear was just perfect.

I started doing a lot of WoW fanart, various Guild shenanigans as well as druid form 'redesigns' (the copy/paste/recolour method was tiring)

A troll druid moonkin form redesign where inspiration is taken from crested cockatoos. The moonkin is in the middle of casting Wrath so has a ball of green energy collecting between its hands.
The main body is various shades of green with the crest and arm feathers being bright red. The facial feathers are mint green and accented with yellow. There is a little bit of white face paint on the beak and at the corners of the mouth the beak structure sticks out like tusks. The ears are long and pointed and the neck ruff is decorated with little skull ornaments that have yellow feathers attached at the bottom.
A digital illustration of Onyxia in her lair, she's seen in the background and has just knocked a dwarf in full armour into the air and he's about to land in a big pile of spiky dragon eggs shown in the foreground.
A digital portrait of a Worgen druid in Moonkin form. It is mostly blue grey in colour, with long pointed ears that are fluffy and a bit tattered. Dark braids are in the main flowing from under the ears. He has an angry expression and his beak is very toothy. The trademark antlers are more swooped back than is typical.

More from the archives. - Pencil detailing was still my strongest skill, as I actually have fairly shaky hands which really shows when you look at my ink lines. Something that wouldn't really be fixed till I started working digitally with vector lines and stabilized brushes.

On the other hand pencil shading did translate well into coloured blending pencils, which I was getting more confident with.

A highly detailed pencil drawing of a scaly dragon from the shoulders up, looking to the viewer's left. Main focus of the drawing is the scale details, which range from large armour plates down to tiny hide-like dots.
The dragon has a flowing mane, webbed ears and two mostly straight horns.
An inked line drawing of a dragon mid flight. The dragon is looking to the viewer's left, wings half unfolded and the main body pose makes it look as if it's moving backwards.
A rear view of a colourful dragon sitting down, looking to the viewer's left, wings loosely spread to each side hiding most of the body. It's body is blue and the wing membranes purple, with a colourful mane meant to imitate the colours of the aurora. The neck is long and slender and bent over, posed with the tail it almost looks like a figure 8.

A lot of my sketches seem to have been lost, but luckily I have tracked a fair amount down in my backups.
I liked to do anatomy/pose practices, as well as trying to figure out perspective etc. All the good stuff.
I was also deep in the weeb hole and trying to replicate chibi style in my more simple work. - I used to get lost in detailing and shading (still do tbh) and was enamoured with the sharp simplistic nature of chibis.

So, armed with my new character I did trades and fanarts and whatnot, and it was a lot of fun and I interacted with some really nice peeps. But truthfully, I just never connected with her on the level that other people seemed to be doing with their own.

But still, I doodled and practiced, it was good to have a model (so to speak) that I could just play with. I had other characters, mostly fan characters that I'd doodle here and there, but never an actual 'me' so to speak.

I would see all these characters and I wanted to join in, but I had no avatar of my own. I did a few gift/fan arts, but there was something just missing, like I was sending out art but no one could reply if they wanted to.

So, I set out to design an online 'me' to fix this. It was clumsy, awkward and I was really just stumbling in the dark, but eventually I came up with a character design.
And yes, of course she was a dragon!

The latter two panels depict a rabbit who has been neutered. He is excited but circles in a rabbit "dance" without honking or mounting. It looks more pleasant.

Moar dragons!

Pencil shading/rendering was definitely one of my fav things to do, and I kept trying to push into the sort of dark style of the Batman and later Gargoyles cartoons, which is why I wanted to lean into learning to use inking pens. - But the idea of not being able to erase mistakes was terrifying, which is why it took me a while to do anything other than simple linework.

Still avoiding irises!

I used to almost exclusively draw in pencil, but slowly added some colour into the mix, - to start with only on inked art as I just didn't know how to work with coloured pencils tbh. but I gradually got a little more confident.

It would still be about a decade before I started doing digital art.

I just realised this painting of mine is ten years old this year. It's one of the first I made when I was getting into digital art, in Photoshop CS2, and it was a study of my own photo taken in a zoo in Japan. I still like how I chose to do the reflections, even if I would probably do the whole painting more competently now.

Digital illustration for a strawberry alcohol.
There is a zombie at the center, drinking out of a soju bottle. Around the zombie, drawings of strawberries and flowers, to indicate the taste of the drink.
The taste was so strong that it made us feel like zombies while drinking it.

Made this for @Boro_que’s birthday a couple of years ago. #oldart #furry #furryart #hippo #hippopotamus

Birthday pic I made for Boro_Que a couple of years ago showing his hippo form, shirtless with purple sweatpants carrying a box of Paczki’s over his shoulder.

The 2019 poster got way too messy!
I went out of my way to include ALL the guests, but they just kept updating me with new guests all the time, so I had to do one where I could just easily cut and paste more of them into the illustration.

The Tetris tournament had to be the center piece though, but other than that, most guests were either local or European this year. But there were a ton of them!

Retromessa poster from 2019.
There's just too much going on here to describe. Alot of characters just climbing around a wall of tetris blocks. There's a race going on with different videogame cars, people fighting, an opera singing poop and Bowser climbing a building.
Too much! Too messy!

Okay, the 2018 poster I actually still like, though I'm not a fan of my old style.

The outdoor motive is a bit more fresh, and I thought it was cool to show off Frog Mario under water.

There was a bunch of guests this year and it was hard to squeeze them all in. The Nintendo Playstation had to go center.
I still worked on paper, so the best part for me was getting all the guests to sign my original artwork. I miss that!

Illustration for Retromessa 2018.
Mario swimming under water, opening a box with Conker and a Nintendo Playstation inside. Bunch of Youtubers relaxing on a beach, and the rest of the guests somehow squeezed into a tiny boat.

Poster from 2017 was slightly better, at least it had a theme going on.

They wanted me to include the guests: which were a bunch of british videogame devs (some ex Rare people, and some C64 devs), as well as a bunch of American youtubers.

I based the idea on the Japanese SMB3 cover and went all out.
I still think the idea is cool, but what is going on with Donkey Kong?

At least I was improving...

Illustration from 2017, used on a poster for Retromessa.
Its a homage for the Japanese cover of Super Mario Bros 3, but with different characters.
Donkey Kong is flying in the front with a bunch of youtubers running down the mountain in the background.
It's a mess.

Been doing the posters for the retro videogame convention Retromessa every year since 2016.

This was my first poster from 2016, and it sucks.
Did it all on paper with colors in Photoshop, and it's just a mess. Colors are too dark, the art is skewed(like all my art back then was). I wasn't entirely happy with it even back then, but now I can barely look at it.

No idea why they let me back next year...

Ancient artwork from 2016, showing a bunch of videogame characters, drawn in a cartoony style, coming out of a TV screen.
At least that was the idea.

I've got so much older work that I still kinda like
Like this one! #mastoart #oldart

The problem is I don't have a lot of finished art (hi untreated adhd)

A digital illustrating in inks and flat colours with a blue, black, and yellow scheme. The picture is mostly blue, and centered between two silhouetted men is a youthful lady wearing a yellow scarf and a yellow Y-shaped pin in her hair. The text on the image reads: Have you seen The Yellow Sign?

I had such a major POTO Hyperfixation a while back. 😂 I had been drawing my and my fiancé’s sonas as Erik and Christine. I miss doing these!

Found an old draft and had to grin.

Quote: "Sir Squeakalot might not be tall, but he will not flinch in the face of danger. Even if you accidentally sit on him."

One thing I’ve always enjoyed about being an online denizen for so many years, is to see how much artists’ work grows over time. I thought it would be fun to share my ancient history here, chronologically, to see if anyone finds it encouraging or interesting. Here’s part 1 of The Old Art Project because I am bad at naming things. Something from 2002, when I was 21, and something from 2021. I’ll let you do the math. 🐞🪲

#incroyable #merveilleuse #medieval #OldArt #CostumeHistory

An incroyable and a merveilleuse (proto-hipsters) from the late 18th century. The incroyable is a poodle and the merveilleuse is a sheep because they are fluffy. The incroyable wears a bicorn and a greatcoat and holds a tall walking stick. The merveilleuse wears a robe en chemise with a short  jacket. A baggy mob cap with ostrich feathers. She carries a small reticule purse.
A noble lady from the 11th-12th century in Europe. She wears a long green kirtle (an overdress that flares from the waist, this a silvery scaled corselet (possibly leather), and a heavy brown mantle on her shoulders. She holds the band of the mantle away from the neck, in the typical style of the period, with two fingers hooked over the band. Her hair is plated in two long braids intertwined with ribbon. She wears a barbette strap under her chin, held in place with a pin at the top of her head. She wears a pale colored veil held in place with a fillet or circlet.
