Onyx 'n Jade by teiirka
Onyx 'n Jade
11' x 14" color pencil

She is an Iberian lynx, a critically endangered species. I thought I knew a lot about cats and thought I knew all the species but I had never heard of an iberian lynx till I started the project last weekend. The iberian lynx used to be considered a lynx sub species but in recent years, has been classified as a separate species. They are native to only the iberian peninsula. Last count I could find shows only about 300 left in the wild. 

At birth, her father wanted to call her Onyx because of her jet black hair that glistened like onyx. Her mother wished to call her Jade because of her rare green eyes. She got both.

Kitties in trees, bows and arrows, and big green orbs, all popular subjects, so I combined them in hopes of something popular X 3. :)

Yeah, yeah, bow is being held weird, what can I tell you, this started out as a simple purdy pin-up and I ended up with this. I will be picking at this for the next week or so.

She will be in the MFF 2014 art show but NFS. 

This is just a photo and has lost a lot of detail resolution. I'll get a good scan later and repost.

I'd never have come to make this had   kellicjtiger not posted a lynxish drawing I did on a table covering last year at MFF. That one will be for sale at the MFF charity auction this year. 

Critique/comments always welcome.
To Touch the Sky by teiirka
To Touch the Sky
11" x 14" color pencil with very small amount of micron pen.

I'm currently trying to figure out what to do about a background. I have some ideas but they would be experimental and could wreck the piece. So I'm showing him now before it's too late. 
I will be doing some more touch-ups on him as I go.

This is a long overdue art trade.

Hope to show him off at the MFF art show. (NFS)
Succulent by teiirka
9" x 12" color pencil and a little micron pen
I really enjoyed doing this one!

**Grapes, They Do A Body Good!**

Paid advertisement for the Vulpine Grape Growers Association of Iowa.

Seems the VGGAI exec's have chosen to add another model to their advertising campaign. Not sure I understand the choice of a oryx, hey, they're Vulpine Grapes and you'd think they'd stick to foxes!.... But I don't care! I want grapes and I want them NOW! !

Critique and suggestions welcome as always. some changes were made after critique of the initial sketch. :)

She will be for sale at the 2014 MFF art show
Succulent   WIP1 by teiirka
Succulent WIP1
11" x14" graphite pencil sketch to be used to transfer line to drawing paper for color pencil finish.

Kinda got a little bit more into the detail on only a sketch but as I mentioned in my journal, I was inspired. :)

I had fun sketching. I'll have more fun coloring!

Foliage will be added or rearranged as I go. 

As always, critique and suggestions welcome.
Watching Over the Herd by teiirka
Watching Over the Herd
9" x 12" color pencil with a bit of Copic marker and micron pen. 

The lead stallion watches his tribe herd from his private secluded observation point.

I've drawn a number of equines of late because they are fun to draw and inherently sexy and I love zebras especially because I love doing stripes. A friend recently, highly recommended that I do a stallion as I don't do enough males. (Way True) Yeah, equines are super sexy, female or male. 

I will be picking at the shading for a couple days but I gotta call this guy done, he's way overworked as it is, but as always, I am very open to critique and suggestions.

I'm an anthro / traditional artist. I draw mostly realistic using color pencil but am starting to experiment with mixed media.
In Highschool-mid 70's- I experimented with various media buy settled with graphite or ink-mostly ink. stopped drawing in 1979. A youg fox I know got me started again March 2010.(A 31 year dry spell) Tried color pencil for the first time and have used nothing else since. I draw almost daily but complete a pic only once every week or 2 as I have a tendancy to do rather large pics with heavy detail. I don't care if it takes me so long, it's what I like doing.
I very much welcome critique, good or bad, especially the nit-picking kind as it is how I learn.
No formal art ed. I just learn by doing. Right now I try and do something a little different each pic.

(*** Will post of my stuff this weekend. Mostly whats posted on FA. Finaly getting active on DA. Yea! ***)

A 31 year dry spell? Now I don't feel so guilty taking a four year hiatus for college. Doesn't it feel great to draw everyday? I finally got back into drawing like I did in high school, even though I lost a lot during my hiatus. Your art is incredible and your style is remarkable! Keep on drawing and doing what you love!
