Fabulous work by other artists on Deviantart!


Bengal Cats Winged Coa Sketch Book page by Reptangle
Bengal Cats Winged Coa Sketch Book page
Ok opinions needed. I am trying to get a sketch book together of   "Certificate Of Authenticity" sketches.  These is a collection of relatively quick, sloppy sketches that I put on certificates and letters of authenticity that accompanied the Windstone Ebay pieces  I have painted over the years.
  We only have copier printed versions of these sketches, not scans , so they look like crumby black-line drawings, not  pencil sketches. I cleaned the outlines up in photoshop so they look nice an neat.
 I have been trying to make them look presentable for a sketch book. I gave these a very slight drop shadow and a textured background to make the weak line drawings  look more substantial. 
Am I overdoing it??  Or are you ok with this look?
 I plan to just use a common POD printing place ( like Lulu or Create space) to do this book.
 I probably have a couple thousand of these little sketches.
Flea Bitten Red Horse by Reptangle
Flea Bitten Red Horse
Close up of the "flea bitten " horse color, so you can see the speckles. It is surprisingly difficult to get an airbrush to spatter in a consistent way when you want it to!
 This is an airbrushed gypsum reproduction of my original sculpture.
Horses by Reptangle
This is what I've been doing the past two weeks. I have been painting horses.
 I've done about 120 of them so far, and  not too many are twins!
 These will be sold as a "grab bag" edition  when they are finished.
 These are gypsum castings of my original sculpture. They are just under 6 inches long.

rough clay Rooster And Hen
Unfinished poultry. These will be Paint-your-owns. The hen sculpt is finished , and will be getting cast soon. Now I'm starting on the rooster. He is messy looking now, but will have all his little feathers detailed and tidy when he is finished.
 These are made from "Apoxy sculpt".

Here's the finished hen sculpt.

Test Paint Chickens
 These are test paints of the  Paint-your-own chicken I have just finished. These are cast gypsum reproductions of my original sculpture. The one on the left is airbrushed with acrylic paint ( with a finish that is too glossy!), the one on the right has a tea stain to show the details. These hens are about the size of a lemon. They have little glass eyes.
 We will sell these unpainted.
 Here is the same chicken in the works:

Rolls off the tongue nicely. More unused art. Maybe I'll use it on the back cover or something. Ayonah looks like he's thinking about where to go from here.
I used some of this foliage on this page:

I was in a local Medieval/Fantasy shop and noticed some very familiar looking figurines! Dracolite in Montreal, QC. I got to tell the employee there about your comic and how I found you through Deviantart hehehehe. 

Was a nice moment! Good to see your figures in person too!

Hi Reptangle!
I'm a big fan of your comic, The Velligent ^^

May I ask your future plan for it? There will be a book of it? Will you start to update another part of the story?

Have a nice day, Leo :D
