Cheetah Skeleton Studies

 I drew some cheetah skeletons and skulls.
 Tried to get dark lines, crisp shading/rendering, and make it look nice and solid.  Also because cheetah skeletons are awesome.

Large Array of Pony Art Inbound

 Season 2 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is finished!  Begin the episode-less summer!  We saw this evil queen up there get defeated!  It's Queen Chrysalis, she has a legion of changelings at her disposal.
 I wanted to make this post because of all the pony art I have been creating and posting over at ponychan: BAppleJuice's Pony Art Thread
 So Applejack and Twilight are still my favorite to draw, but Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash can be fun too!
 I believe my drawing these critters have made my art more appealing in general: thanks Lauren Faust!
 Off-model is always fun.

 This is a large post.

 And lastly a splash image of the mane six that I drew.
Thanks for coming, bronies! And if you hate the show or don't even care, I post other stuff too! Illustrations! Airplanes! Caricatures!

Random April Drawings/Link Dump!

Here is a bunch of random things I drew, and I'm going to put a lot of links in this post too.  First is Jimmy the Idiot Boy as the Turtle Food Collector! From Spumco! CLICK THIS if you want to see tons of cool drawings by John Kricfalusi, Mike Fontanelli, Jim Smith, and many more Spumco lads! 
 Next are drawings from the movie The Brave Little Toaster - a childhood favorite!
 The thing I could remember most vividly was the final junkyard scene, where abused and run down cars are being brought to their final end by this guy:
 If you feel like it, I have linked The Entire Movie Here.  It's on Youtube, so it's lower quality, but hey! There it is.
And lastly, a drawing from memory.  The hippie fox is from Nick Cross's short film, The Pig Farmer.  CLICK HERE to watch it on Vimeo.

F-117 Jet - 3D Model in AutoDesk Inventor

Here is an F-117 I modelled in high school.  I took its general dimensions, and used it to figure out all the other dimensions!!  I used paint, AutoCAD, and Inventor to finalize this jet airplane.
 It's in 3D, so you can rotate the original file.  I just chose the best two you see here.
This was a fun project during my senior year! And yes, this is quite different from the things I normally post.  Indeed.

Peculiar Penciled Ponies Posting

 Odd, eh? I was thinking about Basil Wolverton whilst drawing these.  I didn't do any fancy stippling, though.  I'll try that next time perhaps.
 Twi, Pinkie, and Fluttershy, in that order. 
I do indeed hope you have enjoyed my draftsmanship this day.

Oh, and here is some samples of Basil's work below, he is quite an amazing artist:

21st Century Schizoid Pony

Here is something I drew:
It's an Applejack.  I based it off of this King Crimson album cover:
It's a great album called In The Court of the Crimson King, by King Crimson.  I used Prismacolor markers to try and get similar warm/cool color contrast, but using a different palette.  It's not quite as grotesque as the original, but I like how it turned out.


 A quick doodle or six.  Drawn with pencil, then inked with a cheap pen so it would show up on the scanner.

The Disney Women Post (tentative)

I'm a big Marc Davis fan.  Love his work on Peter Pan, below are some Tinkerbell drawings.  Also I drew Jane from Tarzan, using an animatic as a guide.

She can almost fit through that keyhole, but something is holding her back!
