My gallery is a weird hodgepodge characters and fandoms, from surly plantdragons to odd half-insectoid monstrosities. When it comes to fanart, I tend to stray from topic to topic in hopes that I don't bore people with random obsessions.

Nope, not leaving this site at all (it has the most comprehensive gathering of my art after all and I honestly and personally love posting here the best), but one of my New Years' resolutions was to open more galleries, so if you prefer other sites, I can also be found in these places!

Note: Art DOES appear on this account first (this site has my organized folders and time stamps) and I'm easiest to reach at this website but hey, if you prefer these sites, here they are.

*FurAffinity
(completely SFW, this is just a mirror off of DA)

*Weasyl

*Tumblr
(ONLY an art account. I'm not going to make a reblog/inspo account on this site.)

Why draw the Crash Bandicoot characters everybody likes when you can draw the weirdos that only appear in one game?
Von Clutch by TurquoisephoenixPasadena by Turquoisephoenix
Willie by Turquoisephoenix
I'm replaying one of my favorite Crash Bandicoot games and it aged surprisingly well! Crash Tag Team Racing is such a blast. Usually literally.

It's everyone's favorite Crash characters: Ebenezer Von Clutch, Pasadena O'Possum, and some poor hapless worker named Willie who ran afoul of a radioactive Wumpa Whip machine and now hates his employer for using him as a mascot.
Guys, Crash Bandicoot makes an appearance in Skylanders Academy. (Episodes 10 and 11)

They were even playing the Crash Bandicoot theme song(the one from the first game, not the Crash 3 warp room) and Crash Bandicoot gave Spyro a hug and oh goodness, this is all I could've ever wanted. They finally put Crash Bandicoot and Spyro in a cartoon.

Crash Bandicoot speaks in full sentences, but this is okay because he makes reference to Dr. Cortex by name and he has an Australian accent. He's also portrayed as not stupid and Spyro looks up to him.
Heightchart by Turquoisephoenix
Since a couple people have asked, here's a rough and quick height chart of my Spyro 1 boss revamps.
Not sure how useful this is since most of these guys are crouching/slouching, but here we are.

Assume Blowhard is about average human height.

Jacques and Toasty outside of his suit are both shorter than Spyro and Jacques is the shortest one overall.

Hello everyone, look at this really cool commission I got! The artist is really nice and it would be lovely if you gave them your support. They do really cool art.

OKay so I somehow lost quite a few members of my Watched Artists, and you're among them, so yeah, haven't been able to follow much of your amazing art these past months.
Bummer.

But on the bright side: this gives me a PERFECT excuse for Watching you AGAIN, Fav everything when I have a chance, leave crazy comments like this one, oh oh, and wish you a belated happy new year!

I love the art here, especially the Yo-kai Watch work. Would you be available for art trades, or are those reserved for certain people?

What do you think about the third game's Merican Yo-kai, by the way? I love the parodies of American stereotypes, even if they're not necessarily accurate.

Hello! Thank you for the compliment! With art trades, since I'm really busy nowadays, I rarely do them anymore and when I do, it's usually because one of my friends asked first. But never say never, I might plan to do a quick journal round-up this year.

The third game's Merican Yo-Kai are adorable, but part of me wishes that they took more inspiration from American folklore and threw in some Yo-Kai that are based off of American cryptids. Where's our Jersey Devil Yo-Kai. Our Mothman. Our Sasquatch. Or even some monsters from indigenous peoples' folklore.
But hey, I guess we take what we get, and YKW3 is a really solid entry to the series.

You're very welcome. I'm looking forward to whatever you have in store for the year.

I really love the existing Yo-kai in the game. A lot of the game mechanics appear to be quite useful without breaking the game as well. Maybe we'll get some Classic Merican Yo-kai some time. ;)

On a lighter note : what with it bein' said that the Dinosaurs actually had feathers back in the day, and Ripto supposedly bein' a Dinosaur himself, ever wondered what he'd look like if he were all... Feathery? ^^;

He'd definitely look round since he has a shorter snout and short limbs, probably like a fat chick. The horn I can see like the crest on a cassowary. His lack of a tail really hurts him, unless his tail is like that of a chick, all stumpy.
In short, like a chicken. He'd look like a chicken.
But yeah, it's a mystery but definitely up for interpretation. Ripto transformations are a fun thing to play with.

Would that make him a roast chicken? :D
