Three Kirin card by Reptangle Three Kirin card by Reptangle
this isn't really digital, exactly, I just didn't know how to categorize this kind of image. It is a sketch done with a real wooden pencil that I colored in Photoshop.
This is one of my personal Christmas card designs that I have printed and send out each year. In a frantic, stressed-out manner.

I especially like the way you've given each of them their own personality.

Granted, that is pretty much a "of course" thing, but many artists still neglect that detail.

Lordy, I've been a fan of yours since high school daze in the 70's! As I recall, you have a skull collection...or did at one time. I do too. All carefully placed in a glass case with species labels and everything. Respect where respect is due, after all....

And you are MOST welcome! I will be happily learning at your elbow!

You have skulls ? What have you got? I still have my collection, though most are still packed away from our move.I love the photo of the Vampire bat in your gallery.

Yeah, I have about 100, I think. The vampire bat skull was aquired earlier this year. It's very small, and could sit on a quarter. The smallest I own is from an anole lizard. To look at it under a microscope, it looks just like a tiny dinosaur skull. The largest I own is a zebra skull. Some others I have are: wolf, badger, otter, skunk, lion, bobcat, cougar, coyote, fox, mallard duck, pig, chicken, pigeon, raccoon, mink, squirrel, rabbit, beaver, black bear, English rook, impala, and others. I have full skeletons for a bat, python, chicken, pigeon, and bullfrog. One of the strangest I have is the jaws of a cookie cutter shark. A picture of that one is up here I think...

I have casts too. Castings include: sabretoothed cat, thylacine, clouded leopard, various raptors, a raven, and probably others. Here's a picture of some of them: [link]
