Skrael (I'm the artist)
James commissioned a "Beth Fox Furry" from me to illustrate the "Crazy Like a Fox" phrase a couple of comics back, and this is what he got.

I'm still on the fence about whether or not I like the painted tail mixed with the line art. I just couldn't help myself though! Painting that fur was so fun!

And now for more important things.

My brother, Wayne Purdy has written a book, which is now available for sale! I have had the pleasure of reading it as well and it's fantastically written. Yours truly did the cover art! I will use the words from his website, because I can't really think of a better way of putting things myself (I am not a ritt'r after all, just a draw'r)

Ambrose Vidal is an average, everyday man, so how did he become embroiled in an Islamic terror plot. This is the question he asks himself even as his captors plot his execution live via the internet. To cope with his torture, Ambrose withdraws into his memory, some twenty years earlier, retracing his steps through the most traumatic moment in his family's history. Ambrose is surrounded by an eclectic group of family and friends: his grieving mother, his cantankerous grandfather, his bullied best friend, his much older lover, his drug-addled uncle, and his psychic aunt. Together, they learn the value of perseverance through adversity.

And here is a link where you can find this novel: http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/a-juniper-through-the-cracks/14678199

I just wanted to say, Wayne is personally one of my favourite people in the world. He is the one who sat me down when we were kids and patiently tried to teach me how to draw. Him (and his twin brother Mike) got me into comics, although I will never be on the same the level of comic nerd-ism that they are. Sorry guys! :)

That looks just fantastic Skrael :D

I think the painted tail works because it adds a bit of contrast to the whole thing!

also I wanted to thank you for linking that Lackadaisy cats page on expressions a few strips back, thats been a fantastic reference for me!

Perhaps adding a little painted fur texture to the shadows on her body or something like that would blend it? As it stands, i don't think most people really would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it.

(But i know this is all part of your evil plan to get me to do some furry art!)*

*(might have had to be there.)

Hahaha, sure, blame it on me :P I was just thinking a small little chibi drawing to occupy yourself while I tried to figure out what to write for the next part :P

If I recall correctly, drawing some of the characters in different ways (furries included!) was your idea :D

If I were a furry...
Magravan edit delete reply
You noticed that too, eh Kevin? :)

As for upgrades, Beth dabbles in limb replacement, this wouldn't necessarily be impossible for her to pull off if she wanted ;D Hallowe'en parties or 'dress up time' ;)

I really like Beth-fox's hair. The perspective on the body though...

Holy crap, you are right! I never noticed how far off the perspective is in the room until just now!

I have so much to learn! :/
