Random Cat by Erkhyan
Random Cat

Random animal from a random (presumably feline) species, sitting on a random rock somewhere in a random place.

Did I mention random?

Drawn during last Sunday’s unavoidable family gathering, on a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet with Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, using the default brushes. Minor corrections in Photoshop.

Around 30 minutes of work.

Stretching In The Grass by Erkhyan
Stretching In The Grass

I was stuck in a family gathering yesterday, so I started doodling. This is the result.

Done on a Samsung Galaxy Note .0 tablet with Autodesk Sketchbook Pro, using the default brushes. Minor corrections in Photoshop.

Around one hour of work.

[Inks] Fossa fursona redesign by Erkhyan
[Inks] Fossa fursona redesign

I’ve wanted to change my fursona for a while. I decided on a fossa a few months ago, but never got to drawing it.

Since I turned 30 a couple of weeks ago and bought myself a Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet, I figured I might as well put it to use.

A bit of self-critique: I’m not that good at inking. Somehow the result always looks still sketchy.

[WIP] 20140927 Sketch - Fursona redesign by Erkhyan
[WIP] 20140927 Sketch - Fursona redesign

6.5-hour-long power outage during a week-end + recently bought Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet = I finally got to draw my redesigned fursona (I actually decided on a fossa months ago, but laziness/procrastination/work/stress got in the way).

Still unfinished, but at least this sketch stands a much better chance at being completed in the future than any of my previous attempts.


A few days ago I got blasted by an artist for daring to say that I was not a fan of one — one — part of his picture, while acknowledging that it was only a matter of taste. I also faved the picture and gave it four stars out of five on SoFurry.

That... didn't go over too well, and apparently the artist (and his boyfriend) took it as an attack on his skills, his ability, on his artistic style even! When I tried to defend my initial comment, I apparently earned a few more insults and a block, and an accusation that I would have acted the same way they did if someone had left a similar comment on one of my pictures. Then the whole conversation was promptly deleted.

So, let me get this straight: I will never, never react with hostility to a comment of yours stating a mere preference. You don't like how I draw paws? You don't like the way I draw muzzles? As long as you don't outright insult me or my abilities, and as long as your words remain free of open hostility, I won't mind at all. Who knows, I might even enjoy discussing matters with you.

But one thing I will never do, contrary to the aforementioned artist, is to go through your gallery and insult you and your artistic abilities just because you didn't agree 100% with my tastes and stylistic choices.
