So happy to finally get to share this art!  I did these illustrations for an upcoming furry art tutorial book called “Furries Furever”, the third in a series published by IMPACT and put together by Lindsay Cibos and Jared Hodges.  The 128 page full color book features art by myself and several other furry artists, as we explore our painting and drawing process.  For my part, there are step-by-step instructions on how I did these paintings, and other info on my art as well.

When I was asked what anthro animal I wanted to paint for the big full illustration, I absolutely had to pick bats.  Bats are one of my most favorite animals in the entire world!  They are are only group of mammals to achieve true powered flight, their variety is stunningly vast and fascinating, and they are incredibly important to the ecosystems they occupy.  Here, and anthro bat parent guide their young through a firefly filled night on the little one’s first flight.

According to Amazon, the release date is August 13.  Here in the US, Lindsay says she often sees the first two books in the series at Michaels and Barnes and Noble, so those will be good places to find it.

Making of video of my Furries Furever cover illustration! :3

Here’s the cover illustration for Furries Furever, the third and newest title in my Draw Furries how-to book series! For this book, I teamed up with seven really awesome artists to cover a broad variety of styles and techniques.Each artist was given their own chapter to showcase their art, and talk about their tools and techniques for creating, drawing, and coloring, step-by-step, anthropomorphic characters.For the cover, I based the characters on designs by each of the artists in the book (reinterpreted in my style). Trying to fit that many characters on the cover was a challenge, but it was so fun to draw everyone’s characters. From front to back:Rodent: Tyson TanOcelot: Wolf-nymphSeal: Lindsay Cibos (me!)Tiger: Kathryn LaynoRabbit: CentradragonDragon: RuDragon Fox: CookiehanaShark: AnalonInteresting tidbit about the cover art - it’s the first large illustration I tackled from start to finish on my Cintiq Companion. I used to do line art traditionally with pencil, but this was drawn entirely in Clip Paint Studio (and colored in Adobe Photoshop CS3).So, to summarize, Furries Furever book! Available for preorder!

Oh my, the new Furry book is making its rounds on Tumblr! ^o^ For this third book in the series, I teamed up with seven really awesome artists to cover a variety of techniques.
For the cover, I wanted to showcase a character from each artist’s section (reinterpreted in my style, of course). Trying to fit that many characters on the cover was a challenge, but it was so fun to draw everyone’s characters. (The harp seal is mine. :3) Anyways, I’ll talk more about the book before its August release, but for now I’ll just say that I’m so proud of how it turned out. Everyone did a phenomenal job with their chapters. ^_^

Oh god, these Yoshi’s Wooly World prototypes ⊟

These way cute prototype pics of the Wii U game popped up in this afternoon’s Treehouse E3 stream segment with producer Takashi Tezuka. Like everything else awesome shown at E3, it won’t come out here until some time next year. The actual game is super adorable too.

Thanks to Ewzzy for the tip and for posting the shots online

Yarn Yoshi!<3 So excited for this game. Kirby’s Epic Yarn was so cute.
