Picking Up The Pieces

Inspired by Star Wars: Aftermath by Chuck Wendig. How did the Jawas end up the Mandalorian armor?

A is for Aye-aye

I've decided to work on another ABCs of Under-Appreciated Animals.  I did something like this about five years ago, and had quite a lot of fun with it

Wood Duck

I saw this fella in Boise, ID a few years ago. I took a picture, but wasn't happy with the framing (a big branch was in the way). Works well for a digital painting reference though!

Great Blue Heron

A big blue that I photographed earlier today at Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge (near Olympia, WA).

Typically I don't upload my photos on here, but I quite like how this one turned out.

Wiggly Charlie

From the Grim Reaper series by Christopher Moore (A Dirty Job, and Secondhand Souls). He's one of the Squirrel People which Moore based off of of the sculptural assemblage works done by Monique Motil.

This one likes cheese. And has a specific piece of anatomy that he uses to tie his wizard robe shut.

There's really no way to properly describe the character, but he's hilarious.

Many thanks to my wife for doing the inking on this one.

Malheur National Wildlife Refuge

The Bundy Bunch reminds me of a 10 year old who spends the afternoon building a snow fort, complete with arsenal of snowballs, then sits there disappointed until dusk because nobody wants to play.
It's just like that, only way more ignorant and belligerent.

Spawned Salmon

A spawned-out coho carcass that I saw last year while working.
