This is my non-TMNT related stuff that I exhibit. :twink:

I'm currently working on rabbits depicted as different fairytale characters. All images are original and belong to me.

Thank you! It's a shame really, I work in a lot of metallic paint and it just doesn't photograph right. His eyes actually glow gold. Hoping to sell him at the weekend! :tsmile:

Another 'Rabbit Alice', she was done in pencil first then I photographed her and painted her in the Brushes app on my phone.

Ohh..I haven't commented here yet?!
Awesome pictures!
I love traditionally drawn pictures, that's the only real way for an Artist to prove her/himself in my eyes. Because hand-drawn art..IS Art.
Digital is nice to look at..best thing if you can do both xD
You're on DeviantArt too?

Thank you :tgrin: I prefer to put actual paint on canvas but there is some amazing digital stuff out there! I'm trying to get my skills sharpened.
Im not on DeviantArt I'm afraid, never got around to making an account but I know I really should. It's hard fitting everything in, I write a fanfic when I'm not working or painting.

Panel 3, Wolf Rabbit!!
Both are acrylic on canvas and all three parts of this are strung together so they hang vertically and it tells the story. I don't tend to get time to paint much over Christmas but i've got some commissions waiting for the New Year so i'll have to get a move on.

This is Elle Chupacabra, I designed her for a marvel comics competition, I didn't win but the concept is too good to drop so i'll soon be starting to post Elle's story on fiction.net.

Ha, no, not a cougar ;)
This is my original character 'Elle Chupacabra' a new twist on the urban legend of El chupacabra. The beast is supposedly part coyote, part reptile and has spikes down the spine. It is said to be responsible for draining the blood of livestock throughout Mexico, southern America and Puerto Rico. I like her hands to be more human because in my version of the story she speaks and stands like a human, she's also got a bit of a taste for Cuban cigars and she can't hold those without a thumb, lol. There's a link to the story above if you want to read about her. :)

Lol, I actually sell quite a lot of my paintings, i've been very lucky. The frog one will be going to a new home soon and I'm selling prints too. I have a stall (on my day off from my full time job) in a craft market where I take the paintings plus tshirts and badges with my artwork on. It's hard work but one day it'll be worth it.
The fan art I just do for fun really and it's copyrighted so I wouldn't sell it.

Exactly Vivi! Well spotted :D I'm big into symbolism, metaphors and hidden meanings. All of my pictures have something like that in there. My boss found the lock cover in an old box and this picture popped into my head, he very kindly donated it to me but I did get a funny look when I told him what I was going to do with it!

This is the biggest piece I've done so far, 'Desmond' the greater kudu. Met him a few years back and we got this great pic of him which I thought would look awesome on wood. He's about 2ft x 1.5ft. Spoilered for size.
