Drow Steed

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Vicious, elegant, and a bit crazed, this creature is a fine match for its riders, right down to the classy color scheme. A sorcery-bred mix of serpent, insect and big cat, these is my interpretation of the favored steeds of the drow in urban fantasy stories by a couple of fellow Elfwood artists, Donna Maria Waltz and Grace Catherine Spengler. A long overdue phone conversation with Donna gave me the name of the critter -- a CobraCat. A quickie (for me) ink drawing, colorized in Photoshop using the Hue and Saturation adjustment function, and tweaked a bit further. Only took a couple of weeks instead of months...:-P Just having a bit o' fun.

Them's the Brakes

Inspired by a friend's moving experience, involving one of the most terrifyingly unroadworthy vehicles I have heard tell of. Whoa, mods choice first time out of the gate. Guess the Elfwood donation is good for something.  *wry grin*Corrected a couple of misspellings. Knew I should have used a spell-checker... Nertz! Correcting the misspellings lost the Mods Choice icon! Scream! Wail! Other imprecations as required! If I ever get another one you'll just have to live with any stupid misspellings! * pout*
