Scale gauntlets and Cherry scourges

As a few of you may know, I got back from my first BLFC about a month ago. BLFC is a west coast furry convention based on the west coast in Reno Nevada at the very cool Grand Sierra resort/casino. I decided to give it. shot because Ingo has never been to a fur con, and a lot of my old friends I made back in 2004 from the dealers room scene wanted me to go. I am mostly no longer within the furry scene (for various reasons), but got inspired by a couple of guys I saw at a drunken dragon party to resurrect my oldest character the “Ratbat”. 2 of the guys there had on some custom tails and scale gauntlets that blew my hair back. I thought this was cool as fuck, and I’ve never grown out of my general love of demons/ monsters. After asking around, I discovered they were made by an east coast weaver artist named WuffJaye, and that this was the final year they would do custom gauntlets. I only had a 50/50 chance of getting an order in based on the no. of submissions. But I am happy to report that I was accepted yesterday. I intend to primarily use these at EDM/house/drum & base/psychedelic/chiptune music shows where the people dress up in outrageous shit while they sweat it out on the dance floor. The above picture I May or may not finish at some point this month (will probably fix the back leg..), But may go on the back burner in favor of some f-105 porn or some comic. I haven’t really decided yet. I’m trying to get my inspiration back so I can continue on with Calamity.  Enjoy.

Oh.. and P.S. E3 2018 best of show hands down, Cyberpunk 2077 and Death Stranding. Cant fucking wait.

    How come you went to a furcon? I’ve heard nothing but bad things about those places, I know not all of them are as much of a disaster as Rainfurrest was(I implore you to look it up if you don’t already know about it), but anyplace where a large number of furries congregate into one area mustn’t be pleasant.
    Cool dragon, though. It looks a tad too “donut steel” for my tastes, but it’s good.

    @Anon: in 2000-2004 I made about a 3rd of my friends and acquaintances through the furry fandom. I started out as a monster artist on the side when I went through college learning how to draw my humans/machine art. I sold art in dealers rooms at furry cons and had the opportunity to travel across the country just for knowing the people that I did. The actual cons themselves are manageable because I get invited to room parties where theirs copious amounts of booze and the people share youtube/gaming videos. Basically, its easy for me to avoided the fetish aspect of that world and I still love my furry friends even though their porn is not for me. For someone like Ingo and I, the fandom can be very excepting of weirdos. Its blessing is also its curse however. The same people who liked big-tittied cat girls are mixed in with the people who draw sonic the hedgehog urinals and were-diapers.

    When I read your comment about the “donut steel” dragon, my heart sank. Its because of 30 years of autistic shit in that fandom that I cant even enjoy my own stupid monster ideas without negative connotations. Maybe I wont finish this after all. :shrugs:

    Ratty, you should 100% finish this drawing.
    I know what you mean about the furry fandom making you embarrassed of your own work (there are tons of things I used to loved that I refuse to associate with because of them), but you shouldn’t allow that dictate your hobby. Don’t let my random observations deter you from doing something you like.
    While I do think that dragon looks like something you’d see on FA, there is a big difference between you and the hyper autists on FA who draw their dickgirl OCs voring their other dickgirl OCs then shitting them out, your art is strange by all means, but you’ve never gone into such decadence and pure ’tism.
    Fuck the embarrassing fetishists, draw the cool monsters you want to draw. If any of them ever come by (which I doubt they will) and ask “hey bb could you draw him crushing my fox with his paws? owo” just tell them to drink bleach.
