Media: Adobe Photoshop 7
Date: 7/23/12

Commissioned pinup of Sakura, the silver-haired kitsune (fox-spirit) from the anime Hyper Police. After watching some of the anime, it seemed to me that her fox-tails were usually drawn so that they might look like part of her hair, so I tried to include that element.

Media: Micron Pigma pens, Adobe Photoshop 5
Date: 9/16/02

Media: pen, Photoshop 5, Painter 5.5
Date: 6/22/01

This is a character from Jen "Tochi" Wang's webcomic Strings of Fate. This is really just a reinterpretation of a piece Tochi did. Several people have pointed out how much she came out looking like an Ah! My Goddess! character; it's funny that it didn't occur to me while I was doing it.

Painted Desert
Media: Micron pens, Photoshop 5, Painter 5.5
Date: 8/13/01 

The figure was inspired by the old black and white Pat Benatar Tropico poster that hangs in my studio, with some 80's color and a touch of Patrick Nagel tossed in for good measure.

Mucha Angel (Christmas card)
Media: Micron Pigma pens, Adobe Photoshop 5
Date: 12/04/00

2000's Christmas card. The goal here was something inspired by Art Nouveau poster boy Alphonse Mucha. Personally, I'm proud of the hands (which I had to redraw about seven times).
.

See You Space Cowboy... (Cowboy Bebop)
Media: Micron Pigma pens, Adobe Photoshop 5
Date: 11/14/00  

The background was originally done in Painter (she's supposed to be reclining on the couch in the Bebop's main lounge), but it looked terrible and I was out of time, so I blurred the heck out of it and covered it up with lots of pretentious text.
.

 

TomoÚ Sunrise (Heike no HidÚn)
Media: Pencil, Adobe Photoshop 5, Bryce 4
Date: 5/00 (original 11/99)
