You know… the Pit Bull ban here may suck, but it’s at times like these I’m actually glad that my dog is required to wear a muzzle when in public, because a scenario like that could very well have provoked Zena to bite out of reaction to a strange hand suddenly coming at her face from nowhere. I bet the kid’s mom was totally pissed at him. At least, I hope so!!
Zee took it well, though. She actually seemed more surprised than anything, and kind of looked at me like, “WTF just happened??” She’s also got a new muzzle now, because the chrome one was just too awkward for her to wear. She now has a more comfortable leather “Hot Dog” muzzle, the same type as Taffy’s, (abulldogslife) only Zee’s is black with cute little silver bone studs on it. ;)
She still hates it, but at least she looks stylin’. X-D

Zee sneering, after I took the muzzle off. The first thing she usually does when I get home is to bury her face in her dog bed and roll around. Poor puppy!
And now… ART!
Well, just a few scans of some of the finished commissions I’ve gone and mailed off.
A dude at Anthrocon ’05 really liked one of the old drawings of Scarlet Vixen I did, and asked me if I’d do a commission of the same image, just slightly modified. The original is Adult, (no, you can’t see it…) of Scarlet holding her boobs up and showing off her barbell piercings. :-P He really liked the character, and asked if I could draw her in the same pose, just with her arms crossed in front of her chest. To be honest, I really like how this turned out. I actually think it’s better than the original, and am glad that he asked for it! :)
Badge I did for Ebdain. Noticed one eye is a bit oddly slanted… of course I didn’t notice it until *after* I was already coloring it. O.<
Little more detailed badge I did for Kody Wolf. This one was actually *hard* to get the colors right on, as the ref image given was a bit different than the description he gave me. It was supposed to be a version2 image, so I tried to be as specific to his instructions as I could: “Lighter brown wolf, with darker brown and black ‘highlights.’ If you show paws, I’d like darker brown paws, with lighter brown undersides and pads.” So this is what I came up with. Looks a bit odd to me, after seeing the original reference - but he liked it, so I guess that’s all that really counts! :)
That’s all for now. I’ll add more commission updates soon!
