  If you recall last month, I mentioned I was doing a small set of pictures of my dragons. This is the first of what I have completed so far of the Elemental Dragons Set. Here is Celeste the Fire Dragon of the Lizard subspecies. Lizard Fire Dragons have the ability to breathe fire and withstand high temperatures up to 200°C. They are, however, unable to stay in the cold nor swim and must always be warm (much like a lizard, what a quinky-dink! =Ț).
   Goshles, I love this picture. It is so well drawn, but unfortunately my OldNew scanner, which I had to use because I was back home at my parents', ate the colours VERY badly >< Ugh. But, I am happy with this picture immensely (wee, that's a word you'll never hear me say again about my pics... :D Hee hee). I got the little symbol from some CD cover I accidentally found online while I was trying to find the symbols for the elements. *noddles* I love Celeste's legs and feet :D I like the way I draw dragon feet :)

  Next in my Elemental Dragons Set is Wyvern the Air Dragon of the Bird subspecies. Bird Air Dragons are able to breathe gusts of air at opponents and manipulate the air and wind around them to the point of gale-force winds. More mature Air Dragons can eventually create tornadoes. They are usually short-tempered, however, and also cannot swim, although they are waterproof due to a large amount of their body being covered in large feathers. This also helps them keep warm and be protected from erratic changes in the weather. And because they bear a striking resemblance to fowl, they are almost always mistaken for large birds (which is probably why they are short tempered... =p)
   I am very happy with this picture. I drew Wyvern so beautifully, and goshles, I love those silly little bird feet :D Hee hee. This is probably one of my best pics of Wyv... Yeah. Actually, all of these Elemental pics are excellent :) Weee! Anyhoo, here is Wyvern, my short-tempered, cockny-accented dragon :)

  The next dragon is Azure the Water Dragon of the Lizard subspecies. The Lizard Water Dragons are totally opposite of their Lizard Fire dragon counterparts -- they prefer the cold and love the water. While they still need warmth to survive (ie cold blooded), they can often go quite awhile without it. These dragons can survive underwater, too, for long periods of time (about 10 minute spurts) and are very quick swimmers, their bodies designed to swim side to side (like a snake or shark) rather than to paddle forward with the help of their incredibly-strong tails. The Lizard types, though, unlike their Tundra counterparts (the Ice Water Dragons, which I have yet to create), they cannot survive very cold weather, which can cause their blood to freeze instantaneously.
  This picture turned out so very very good! I love how I drew Azure, and the colouring is amazing (another word you'll never hear me say to describe my pics ever again...). Once again, I love her feet the best, and her wings are very nice too, yeah. :D Huzzah! Ooh, I'm so happy! :D

  Here's Tu Long the Earth Dragon of the Magic subspecies, done for my Elemental Dragons Set. Magic Earth Dragons are rare, but enough of them exist to prove that they have not gone extinct. Magic Earth Dragons have the ability to create earthquakes, dust and sand storms, and avalanches. They are also believed to bring good luck to anyone who is able to catch one, at which time they can grant one wish. To posess one as their partner, though, will bring the owner eternal happiness and inner peace (wee, isn't this exciting?).
  OH. MY. GOSH. This is the BEST picture of Tu Long I have EVER drawn! Look at it! I LOVE the pose! It's so graceful and beautiful! I love how I drew his body and his legs and EVERYTHING! *cheers* And to top it off, it's well coloured :D Wee, I'm so proud and happy! :D *cheers*

  This is the final pic I have for my Elemental Dragon Set, at least until I create the remaining dragons for the subspecies (as if five weren't enough... according to my paper I jotted down, I have at LEAST six more to create!). Here is Esprit the Spirit Dragon of the Faerie subspecies, the one of the two most rarest dragon subspecies in existence, with about 15 known Fairies (the other is the Angel Type, with only 10 known to exist). Faerie Spirit Dragons are also the smallest dragons when fully grown. Spirit Dragons themselves are said to have amazing and extraordinary powers, believed to be able to create and destroy life, depending upon their mood... (eep.) Esprit himself is too young to posess any powers, but it is believed he will, at puberty (that's the best way I can put it) be able to create energy fields and, at maturity, create life or death. Wee. I haven't really thought through Esprit's abilities yet, so bear with me.
  This is also a very good picture. I like that you can see a lot of Esprit's wing (I like the design... :D). The pose is sort of silly, but meh, I still like it. He's so cute :)

  Ken06.jpg
  Ken06.jpg

  Wee! This has been sitting in my sketchbook for quite awhile... :D This is just a cute picture I doodled up of a SD Ken with a SD Kaiser head in the BG. The foreground is done in my sister's PrismaMarkers which I borrowed when I went home for July, and the background is in my PrismaPencils. I don't like the colour I chose for MarkerKen's hair... And I think I sorta ruined the FG by using pencils for some of the lighting effects. Blarg. But I really honestly love the Kaiser head. I like the way I drew and coloured it... which proves I should just stick to pencils... :) Hee hee. Nice and simplistic :)

Rascals01.jpg  

  August 27, 2003 was my 22 birthday (horrah) and the 31st is my friend Cyber's. This picture here is part of a running gag me and my friend Cyber have been doing for a few years about how old we are both getting... Last year, she drew us a picture of Ratfink and Cyber preparing to light our birthday cake, fire extinguisher close at hand. Well, it looks like the cake had just too many candles on it this year and it finally went up in flames... :D Hee hee. Cyber then states something that should have happened a long time ago, back in the year when their cake toppled over... Hee hee. Happy birthday, Cyber! *hugs* May your cake not go up in flames :)

  Bastet04.jpg
  Bastet04.jpg

  This here was just a rough doodle I did of my new WitchCat, Bastet, that I decided ink and colour. She here is shown without all that fancy schmancy stuff she would usually wear (ie her headdress and neck things) and silly me forgot to draw her tattoo on her shoulder =Ț This one turned out really good, considering the initial picture itself wasn't very good and almost got thrown out. =O Hee hee. And lookit the new Picture Tube I found! XD Yay! Flares! :D Hee hee. Cute picture.

Bastet05.jpg  

  Yet another picture of my WitchCat, Bastet. This is I think the final revamp of her. I gave her a new colour and style to her headdress, which I like much better. And I like the pose I put her in too... Sorta weird, but I like it. :) I love the look on her face too, but her nose/muzzle looks a bit weird... Merf. But I still really like this picture :)

  Bastet06.jpg

  And again, here is another picture of my WitchCat Bastet in her furry form. Here she is standing sideways wearing her über-cool headress and Egyptian-styled outfit, creating a sparkle or something... Actually, I added that in there because it sorta looked like she was feeling herself or something... eeee. Actually, it doesn't look that much better now than it did before the sparkle, but oh well, I like playing with my new picture tubes :) Hee hee. I changed her anthro style just a bit, like her arm band and her dress straps. I like her torso, for some reason *shrugs*. But the picture is really nice... Except for her hands... I had so much trouble with her hands... *grrrr...* Merf, ah well.

NoahPaul05.jpg  

  Blarg, this is old. It was a really weird doodle of Noah-Paul that I did which I touched up with ink and coloured with pencils. Merf, I still don't really like this picture, but it's worthy enough to be added to my harddrive. *shrugs* He's standing really weird and I don't like his face. Blarg.

  RedDwarf11.jpg
  RedDwarf11.jpg

  Wee, this is old as heck. :p Hee hee. Here is a pic that belongs with the NP Rimmer and MacKat pic which in turn belongs to what is supposed to be a larger group pic of my and my sister's characters as Red Dwarf people. This here is of Ajax Murphy as Lister, and Kriss Jordan as Kochanski (ain't I clever with "Kriss" Kochanski =p Hee hee). I really like this one and cannot understand why I haven't finished it earlier. I like how I did Ajax's hair too, and LOOK! Kriss' shirt actually looks shiney :D Yay! I'm very happy with this picture :)

  This is just a cute picture I doodled up for my friend Zack, who, judging by his recent journal entries on DA, appeared to need a big hug :) This is so cute :) Hee hee. :)

  RyanQ05.jpg

  This here's kind of a last minute pic :D Hee hee. This is just a cute picture I doodled up of Ryan Quinn, whom I haven't drawn since my X-Men Set... =p Ryan here is sporting his cute little skater outfit :D And OMG, I drew a skateboard! AND it looks good! :D Wee, I love this pic. His face is SO cute :D
