Art Update

It was brought to my attention that I haven't posted any art here in a really long time (months!) so here's a quick update:

Maui Marten!


One of four elemental dragon pendants - they are available for sale at the bottom of this page link: http://foxloft.com/store/originals












Lots and lots of glass pendants - most were custom commissions, a few are available for sale (click on any of the photos for the link).


Husky mug!

A custom wine label as a gift for the awesome Sofawolf duo, Brer and Alopex.



Custom daschund tagua pendant.

Custom kitsune glyph pendant. So many tails!


Playbow husky drum that found a home at MFF. :)


Plant Spirit painting for Alector.

A quick personal piece of a black reindeer. I painted this after a rather poignant dream about one.


A sketch for my favorite raven, who I miss very much.



A quick sketch of an alien canine character named Cairo.


It's silly, but I couldn't resist.

I think I forgot a few things but oof. That's it for now! I have a whole bunch of other things to post soon, will try to do it a bit more regularly and avoid massive blocks like this.
Thanks for looking!!

I *love* how you draw hooves. That reindeer is amazing and you should do more of him. And I love the horse glass pendant - his nose is cute.

Thank you so much!! I admit I'm quite a biased hoof fan. :)
I'm a bit reindeer obsessed right now (I can't wait till we have a farm so we can get a few!!) - I'm hoping to go spend some time at a reindeer farm a few hours from here so I will hopefully get the chance to sketch and take lots of photos. There will definitely be more reindeers in the future!
I am glad you like the horse pendant, too, I think it's the nicest one I've done so far. It's been a long time since I really played with watercolors so I'm excited to be back into it. ^.^

Yay! :D I particularly love the white ones: http://swandogstudio.com/fursuit/reindeerheads.jpg and the tiny Svalbard reindeer and Peary caribou. <3

The various reindeer color morphs are just awesome! I love the white ones, I've heard that there are near solid black ones, too, but I've never seen one. Piebald is most common here, but there are whites available too. :)
The little Svalbards are so cute, with their stocky bodies and silly fat legs. I just finished this book called 'The Real Rudolph' that was really fun to read - if you've never read it before definitely check it out. ^.^

Thanks, I'll see if I can find it! And do you have "The World of the Caribou" hardback book? Because I have two copies and could send you one. :)

(And I really hope to find an all-white reindeer pelt someday; most of the ones I've seen here are the normal white/brown color, or piebald.)

I bet you'll be able to find one. :) I'll keep my eye out and if nothing else I will probably have them myself sometime in the future, if you don't find one elsewhere!

I don't have that book, I must have missed it when I was looking around on amazon for reindeer books. :) I have just the 'Real Rudolph' book and then some books from local authors who keep herds out here. That would be awesome, I'd be happy to work out some sort of trade if you don't have a use for the book. I'm a big sucker for all books!

I have one other reindeer hardback in addition, called "Four Seasons With the Reindeer People", a really awesome book. :) I might be convinced to part with that one too, in trade for something. ;D But I am most definitely interested in trading for the other one, since I obviously don't need two copies of it (I had bought one and was given the other)! What did you have in mind to trade? :)

Ooh, that sounds really interesting, too! I am part Saami and really interested in reindeer cultures - I actually still have relatives living nomadically with the herds (I'd love to be able to visit someday!) Though most people are herding with snowmobiles and helicopters nowadays... but alas, progress is everywhere. I can understand the need to keep up.
I'm pretty open for trading ideas - if there's anything on my website you're interested in (prints, pendants, etc.) or I could do a small painting (Watercolor ACEO or bigger sumi piece) - just let me know what a fair trade value would be for you and what you're interested in and I'm sure we could work something out! :) Thank you for thinking of me, too, books happen to seriously be my biggest weakness. ^.^

Hmm...I really, really love your luna moth tagua pendant, and the books are worth about $30 apiece, but I dunno yet how much shipping on them would be, if in total it would equal the worth of the pendant or not. I would also love to get a t-shirt for Sayh, hmmm...so hard to decide! XD

P.S. I'll just go ahead and get the box shipped to you, so I'll know how much everything will be in total...can you please note me with your address? BTW, I just checked the books on Amazon, and used, but in good condition, "The World of the Caribou" is worth anywhere between $2 and $22, and I can't find a price anywhere, nor any place selling "Four Seasons With the Reindeer People", so it's obviously a rather rare book, and was only sold locally, and I haven't seen it in the stores here since I bought it for around $30. It has 172 pages and photos on nearly every page, and is a big hardcover, with a dust jacket. I found two pics of the cover:

Also, my hubby said these will probably cost a lot to ship, since boxed together, they are rather heavy.

How neat! Thank you for taking the time to check it out, I think I would love both of these books. :)
The lunar moth pendant is one of my original taugas, so I was asking $128 for that + shipping. I think with the two books (about $50) + shipping ($20? $25?) it would be a bit under this - if you were interested in the tshirts I could do those - they are $25 and shipping on them ends up being $6-8 for one, $15-20 for 2-3. So depending on how much shipping costs for you I could send out shirts if I've got ones you'd like.
Or if you're interested in these: http://foxloft.com/store/custom-artwork I could do one of those for you!
Just lemme know. :) Also my email is foxfeather@foxloft.com so we can exchange shipping info and details. ^.^

These are all beautiful, and I love how everything seems to have a story. :)

Again, much love for the pendants - the last group posted (bluejay, lion, aye-aye, cats, horse etc) are particularly striking. :)

Also: I hope you don't feel obligated to post art! I like to read your journal for all you post, not just art. :)

Beautiful wine label!
I love the wine label! Where did you get it printed? Or did you do it yourself?

I brew my own elderberry wine (sounds weird but is soooo good) and I have my labels printed by www.bottleyourbrand.com Their prices are great and they can print custom stuff super-quick. It might be worth looking into if you want to do more custom wine labels!

Re: Beautiful wine label!
I print my own wine labels, I've got a giclee printer and I coat them so they end up very nice and durable, too. :) Thanks for the link though, I know a few people I could pass that on to that might be interested in it - I've been asked if I would print labels for people before but I don't have the time to offer printing services myself. :)
Elderberry wine sounds delicious - I love different fruit wines. ^.^

I want to say something about everything but it's all so pretty I feel daunted. :]

Those pendants are indeed beautiful, and the one I've seen looks fabulous in person. Such a unique idea, so personal in a way. The wine label looks great on the bottle, I'm amazed someone thought of doing that, and the drum is so cool (I didn't realise until now that I may have a Thing for such...)!

I also like your version of the Plant Spirit - I've seen some of Alector's work (in fact I discovered her very recently on DA) and I think the creature is beautiful and it must be really interesting to draw/paint, too.

The boar and raven picture melts my heart... And the text under it. Aww.

Finally, the elemental dragons are lovely; curiously, I read about my Chinese zodiac animal just yesterday and found out I'm an Earth Dragon...
