Seeds of Knowledge by teiirka
Seeds of Knowledge
11" x 14" graphite pencil 2H, HB, and 6B was all I had.


Some of you have been wondering where I've been. Well this is where. It's pretty much the first personal piece I've done in 30 some years.

When I started this, I wanted to do something Art Nouveau but ended up with something only art nouveau-ish. A couple classic Mucha elements and I then just went with the flow. Kinda happy with it though.
I hadn't used graphite in almost 3 years and then not to this extent. Had to learn how those things worked again. Wish I had some do-overs.  

I will be picking at her for a couple more days.

As always, critique and suggestions welcome.
In the Ethereal Mists of Dawn.... by teiirka
In the Ethereal Mists of Dawn....
8" x 11" color pencil and micron pen

This was a piece done just before Anthrocon last year and didn't get posted here. She sold at the show.

I gotta do more skunk girls, they seem to be popular and they sell fast. And They are super fun to draw!

"In the ethereal mists of dawn

creatures of exquisite beauty dwell,

but fade with the rising sun

as quickly as a dream,

leaving those mortals with the fortune

of having beheld their earthly passing,

haunting memories, nebulous and surreal."

May be my fastest piece from start to finish of this complexity ever.

I will be playing with the background some more over the next couple days.

Any critique or suggestions are welcome.

YES! Her hand and a few other things are becoming transparent in keeping with the narrative....I suppose ....yep.


Overlook by teiirka
9" x 13" (22.9cm x 33cm) color pencil

Eyes forever drawn southward across the plains, the young shaman searches for what his visions have hinted, a lone rider on the distant horizon. 
It has been 3 seasons since his intended mate vanished without a trace and though most say she is dead, he feels in his heart that his dream-sight foretells otherwise.
So, as he can, he makes the trek to the overlook, for without doing so, the vision could never come to pass.

This piece is related to "Cane Me, Chain Me, You'll Never Tame Me" Chain me, cane Me, You'll Never Tame Me.   WIP 3 by teiirka

Rock. Dirty Big Rock! Stupid dirty big rock! He took 4 days, the rock took 9! A lot of experimentation here in several areas and I did learn quite a bit.

I also think I finally made a wolf that actually resembles a wolf. I think.

Gonna be for sale at TFF 2015

As always critique and comments welcome.
Acceptance by teiirka
10" x 12" color pencil

This is the matching piece for The Offering by teiirka though they will be sold separately. They will be for sale at t Texas Furry Fiesta next month.

******NOTE:  The pair, "The Offering" and "Acceptance" are for sale now, together. They are a bit pricey but I'd take payments.  I've had some think it a crime to break up the set. Note me if you're seriously interested. *******

Got a little to busy with the foreground but overall, I'm fairly happy with this piece. 
I'll be picking at her for the next few days, so any critique or suggestions are welcome.

I mad at least a dozen changes to "The Offering" after I first posted it. Still haven't got the file updated though.
The Offering by teiirka
The Offering
10" x 14" color pencil

To the Gnam Mi, red is a sacred color. Before the blood red sun touches the horizon, it heralds it and its life giving warmth and lights return by staining the high peaks crimson like the fangs of a victorious hunter fresh from the kill. Red, the color of flesh and the life giving fluid that flows within the blessed beasts that sustains Their people. 
The Flower of life, the first to bloom on the distant valley floors in the spring is the sacred color. And it is used to show a suitors love for a perspective mate, as well as his physical worth, as he must travel great distances in little time, to present the gift while it is still vibrant, un-wilted. 
If it is accepted, he braids it into her mane and they return to their village and the holy 
man for their blessing.

Loved working on this piece, the colors are my favorite to work with!

Gave this guy a mature rating because male dangly parts are peeking. XD

Starting work on the 'mate' to this piece tonight. :)  ****Mate piece completed!  Acceptance by teiirka   ****
This should be for sale at TFF in Feb.

Comments and critique welcome, it's how I learn and improve.

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! ***)

Your artwork is so beautiful. ^^
Do you use colored pencils?
teiirka Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you!
Faber-Castell color pencils, yes. I sometimes use a bit of Copic marker as a base or to help shade or micron pen, but not much.

I usually check out the home pages of my watchers but sometimes this gets overlooked. You my friend, have a fascinating page. And you write! I love to write but my art takes precedence by a few precent but I set aside a month at least once a year for it. I do take the time to read though and I plan on reading through your works, especially after clicking on one of your pieces at random and finding it had received a DD!  I look forward to the reads and giving you faves for a change!  :)
