AFC Report

Henbane and I survived the con! \o/ He actually held up extremely well, even though I got bonked directly in the face with a box during the fursuit games! Thank you to everyone who complimented him or took a picture, I hope some good ones will emerge in the coming week! I did not take a single phot…

character meme again: tell me about yours!

I did this meme back in 2014 and I think it would be fun to do it again! https://www.weasyl.com/journal/60794/character-meme-tell-me-about-yours So, here goes: tell me one or more facts about your OCs, and I will reply with related facts about my own!

Inktober/OCtober

Yup, I'm actually gonna try to do one of those monthly challenges. Or two, rather. I'm combining Inktober and OCtober! 31 days, 31 inked drawings of awful characters! Should be a good opportunity to start some decent reference images for lesser OCs I don't draw too often, or dust off some sketches…

Briarwood’s avatar

so here's an idea

how bout you rate y'alls fetish art as 'mature' or a bare minimum of 'moderate' even if there's nothing explicitly sexual goin' on i mean, random pictures of like, dudes getting force-fed and tiny furries disappearing down lovingly-rendered throats and clothed boobs the size of beanbag chairs are s…

thank you!

Just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who has bought an icon commission so far! Going to get at least a couple more done this weekend, and I'll be passing the funds onto my friend once they're all done. Her bunny is doing well! He got through the surgery just fine. I was worried about him since…

commissions (for real)

I just got the news that one of my good friends is going to have to take drastic measures to save her pet rabbit's life, and I'm hoping to raise some extra funds to pitch in for the vet bills. I can't offer large commissions right now due to being in the super busy season for my day job, but I can…

Briarwood’s avatar

also (throw refs at me!)

I'm thinking about finally offering some commissions over here but I need examples. First three people to throw character references at me will get a full-body inked drawing (going to work rn so I can't respond right away, go ahead and post anyway~)

It's been ten years and the idea of being 'visible' is still really weird and iffy for me, but I am me and I am here, so here are a couple of selfies. Surprise, I am not actually a talking mongoose or a gangly old shitlord (though it's not for lack of trying). http://mongoosefangs.tumblr.com/post/1…

YOU GUYS

I was going through old art for shits n giggles and I realized that Naples is going to be a whopping four years old next week! It's super weird, I feel like he's been around forever at this point (though characters like Blaine are the real oldbies, closer to fourteen years). here's to more mongoose…

Trying to migrate from FA?

Check out this journal by fancyowls, it's old but it still contains a lot of good advice if you want to wean yourself off of FA. Whether you're leaving for good or you just want to branch out to other galleries, it's worth a read. https://www.weasyl.com/journal/24895/how-to-make-weasyl-your-main-ga…

great job wow

Today after a year and a half of being behind the wheel I finally did it, I locked myself out of my vehicle like a dumbass. The good news is, I was able to break in and get the keys out in just a few minutes, so I know I'm not totally boned if it ever happens again. The bad news is that my truck is…

character meme (tell me about yours!)

Posted this on tumblr, but I think it'd be fun here too- tell me a random fact about one (or more) of your OCs, and I will respond with a related fact about my own! so far it has been established that: -Paquin doesn't really like seafood that much, despite being a seal -Blaine plays the harpsichord…

Suit-making updates on Tumblr!

I'll be posting progress shots of Babby's First Fursuit to my Tumblr, so as not to clutter my gallery here. As of today he has eyes, whiskers, and his nose is currently curing in my landlady's toaster oven (though I took the most recent photos before I sculpted that.) Nothing is attached right now,…

Anyone here happen to go last year? Or plan to go this year? As psyched as I was to finally have a con I could drive to, I just didn't have the time or money last year.
