Feather Art Bookmarks
Hey friends! I have redone my original raptor feather bookmark designs so that they're updated and much nicer. If you would like to order one, just head over to my store:

I do custom colors and designs as well.

Please note: these are art bookmarks, not real raptor feathers.
Best of Strider
Just a collage of my best pics so far of my Swedish Vallhund puppy, Strider. He's currently around 6 months old.

My hubby's nagging finally caught up to me, so I'm actually learning how to use my camera, etc. Instead of just shooting in auto. lol.
Plein Air Cypress Knees
Just a quick little 'en plein air' sketch a friend talked me into trying. Might try to keep doing these as I've been told they will really help improve my art skills.
I've been tagged(!) by :iconelementaljess:


Post 8 facts about your character.
Tag other characters.
Post their names along with their creator’s avatars.

Jess asked me about Keshaar, and I am a sucker for talking about my characters, especially when they're gryphons. lol.

1. Initially gryphons and humans lived together, however, during the reign of one particular king, magic was outlawed, and gryphon families fled to less civilized lands. Keshaar's parents left the southern main city, Ktal, and escaped into the north with a larger flock, where they stayed for quite a while, even after the old king was removed and a new, kinder ruler had taken his place. Around the time their twin sons were born, a rebellion had started forming in the south. The gryphon flock in the north sided with the current king, and Keshaar's parents left to raise their sons away from war.

2. Keshaar and his brother Zanthar are identical twins. The only difference is in eye color, which is rare in identical twins, but does actually happen. Keshaar's eyes are yellow, while Zanthar's are green.

3. Keshaar has a young adventurous spirit, but doesn't fall in with many of the beliefs of his friends. He does not worship the gods, though few actually do anymore, and he doesn't care much for prophecies. He feels strongly about his own wings and legs, and where they can carry him. Kashaar plans to make his future how he wants it to be.

4. When he was still young and not quite an adult Keshaar fell for a young female gryphon in his flock named Souru. She was strong, a successful huntress, and always up for joining in with his games and antics. If there was trouble, usually Keshaar, his best friend Taevern, and Souru were right in the middle of it. Souru always saw Keshaar as more of a brother though, and rejected Keshaar when he asked if she would fly with him during their coming of age ceremony. He continued to be her friend though, and was devastated when she disappeared and was believed to be dead.

5. Gryphons, being what they are, are inherently magical in nature. Most gryphons have basic magical abilities, like fire-starting and the ability to speak mind to mind. Some gryphons have full mage powers, limited only be their own will and imagination. Keshaar is an adept level mage, being able to use a number of spells for various things, like healing, though he doesn't use magic often.

6. Once, when Keshaar was younger, he went with his mentor to the capital city, Ktal. He wasn't allowed in on official meetings, so he explored the castle gardens, where he ran into an older human. They liked each other right away, and spent the rest of the afternoon just talking and sharing witty banter. When they were finally discovered by some very irate guards, Keshaar was shocked to discover the man he had befriended was actually the king and archmage, Torren. They remained friends thereafter, and Keshaar was granted access to the castle and Torren himself. Any time of day or night he could call on Torren for help. Official meetings be dammed.

7. Due to their fast friendship, Keshaar is determined to help take a stand against the rebellion, and help Torren fight. Torren is reluctant to actively engage in any kind of war fare, and this later causes problems.

8. Keshaar is open to friendship, no matter where it comes from. This came in use when a local wolf pack was suspected of eating livestock. Keshaar went to investigate the claims and discovered the wolves were actually larger and more intelligent than normal wolves. They could speak as plainly as gryphons could. Obviously a mage had played a roll in their pack's creation. Keshaar, sure of their innocence, went to Torren with the problem, and land was set aside away from developed areas, just for the wolves. The wolves could live there, free of accusations, and could help deter regular wolves from moving closer to the city. They would help keep the livestock safe in exchange for a safe place to live and raise their young.
