Warm Mountain Wind by windfalcon
Warm Mountain Wind
Remember this old piece from 10 years ago?
Foahyn by windfalcon
I was going through my gallery to find some examples of my older work and stumbled across this drawing.  Foahyn was an RP character I used with friends a while ago.  She was meant to be a sweet, choir angel with wind powers. I never really liked the original drawing I did of her - particularly that stiff pose, weird face and giant man hands :B  I guess in the back of my head I was still annoyed that I never really came up with a proper drawing of her, so I used it as an excuse to mess around with graphite again.

I've had no motivation to do anything today, so at least I feel a little accomplished having drawn something.

The name "Foahyn" is loosely based on "Foehn", which is a type of heated wind that flows down the side of mountains, thus the title.

Goddammit Feebas by windfalcon
Goddammit Feebas
I got a copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby from my friends from Christmas, which ended up being pretty interesting since I never played any of the original Generation III Pokemon games. I kind of skipped from Gen I to Gen V and never really played any of the earlier ones.  So I had *no* idea what the point of berries that increased Beauty or Coolness or whatever were.

Until I caught a Feebas and realized there are no Prism scales in Hoenn.  In Black/White and X/Y, the only way to evolve Feebas to the absolutely stunning and incredible Milotic, is to trade it using a Prism scale.  Otherwise, you have to raise its Beauty to maximum.  So suddenly I realized why those stupid berries were so damned important - if I wanted a Milotic, I was going to have to stuff Feebas' stupid face with Pokeblocks made from blue-colored berries.

And that's exactly what I did.

...maybe Birdtrainer should stick with raising birds.  Fish don't really seem to be her thing :|

Mojave
The sun rises over a rusty landscape of parched earth and cracked crags. Golden eyes peer to the east, warming their wings and preparing for the day's hunt.

Vhachuir Coat of Arms by windfalcon
Vhachuir Coat of Arms
Although not an official country, Vhachúir has a coat of arms for official documents and diplomatic representation.

Wings: Angel (gold), fae (multicolored) and demon (violet, red and orange), representing the three main peoples within the lands.
Key: Symbolizing Vhachúir as a land of liberty and a sanctuary from persecution and slavery.
Sea Wyrm: Guardian of Blade Bay, the ocean border in the south, which protects Vhachúir from sea-bound invaders.
Falcon: Representative of Iolani, Guardian of Vhachúir, as well as the land's symbol of a falcon biting off her jesses.
Hellhound: Representative of Blackledge, Guardian of Vhachúir, who smuggled countless slaves into Vhachúir while acting as a slave trader.
Mountains: For the three ranges surrounding the lands in the North (Winter Range), West (Windcall Mountains) and East (Veil Peaks)

The official words representing Vhachúir are seen on the bottom: Elvhain tí na Chuvoir - "For Freedom I Will Die".

Mossgold by windfalcon
Mossgold
I haven't had time in so long to paint something just for me. Even the holiday card was something planned that I do every year.  I was visiting a friend and doodled this on some watercolor paper, and finally found time (or made time) to paint it.  I have a minor cold right now, so I really needed something to do that I don't have to worry about messing up :D  I suppose when I doodle I naturally go along similar subjects to Ritual or Ceremony.

The reason I uploaded such a small file is because the painting itself is only 5.5X7 inches. It's probably bigger on your screen than in real life.

I loved the book "Winged Fantasy" you wrote. It really helped me with my griffins, hippogriffs, and dragons!!!! Thanks so much for writing it!!!!! :D I am really bad at watercolor, but your book helped me a lot. I counted the hours waiting for it to come in the mail. When it finally did, I was so overjoyed and started drawing a pegasus right then! You are such a great artist :)

Hahah thanks! That's Athena the peregrine falcon from the raptor center where I volunteer. I just happened to snap a pic of her being goofy and it looks like she's smiling.

Happy holidays to you!

I'm going through your AMAZING Winged Fantasy book . . . I was wondering, when you use transfer paper, do you ever deal with a sort of waxy line on your watercolor paper where the drawing transferred? That's been my experience and I wondered if you just work with the line (it won't take color) or if you use a different kind of transfer paper....

I know but you're swamped but if you have any advice, I'll take it :D

I use Saral transfer paper, which you can find in fabric stores like JoAnn's Fabrics :3  It's wax-free so you don't get issues with a line that resists paint, and it's also easy to erase.  This is the 5-piece sampler pack that JoAnn's sells - www.amazon.com/Saral-Transfer-… But you can also find rolls of it at places like Dick Blick.
