SLM 38 Meringue by Aelius24
SLM 38 Meringue
Here's an updated bio for my Super Lab Mouse, Meringue (which, I'm surprised I didn't post the first of here...  but you can see it on my Tumblr here: fennecael.tumblr.com/ ).

I decided to give her an "everyday" outfit for her to wear around the Cookie Jar, though true to her personality she still had to show a bit of fur =p

Mirage's Weapons by Aelius24
Mirage's Weapons
A commission from :icongushousekai195:, this one of my sultry snow leopard spy, Mirage.  He wanted to see her in a sleeveless leotard with all her gear on, and she had absolutely no qualms about it :-p  Here she proves once again that she's capable of handling herself in all types of combat scenarios, be they long-range, close-range, or closer-range ;-)

Thanks again for commissioning me to draw her, dude!

Skritcho Meditating
Here's my next piece commissioned from Anthrocon.

This serene fellow is Skritcho, taking time to meditate in the forest.  Surrounded by nature, caressed by warm sunbeams overhead, one can't help but enjoying oneself ^_^

A bit of writing-related news today.

First, I am confident in saying that after two rounds of major edits, my novel Auran Legend is now ready to submit. I still need to do a cover letter and synopsis, but the work itself is complete. Hooray! However, I've encountered a bit of a snag... every publisher I've looked at to send this to is closed to new novel submissions. D'oh... Well, at least this gives me time to write up a good cover letter and synopsis without rushing.

It's not all bad, though. I've been informed one of my short stories has been accepted into an anthology! This will be my first official, paid published work (barring the self-published Obsidian Road, which... is a lot different than my current works due to how much I've learned since then). Hooray again! More details to come as it gets closer to publication, which I'm told will be sometime in early Fall. And yes, it's furry ;)

I'll be working on a commissioned story over the next month or so, and I also have a superhero tale already complete that's waiting in the wings for the go-ahead by the commissioner. As for my own personal work, I haven't decided which story to do next. A recent surge in world-building for ARC Knights has me contemplating that one. I've even done a couple of test chapters for it. I've also started putting together a human-furry story that I could possibly pitch to more mainstream publishers. Rocket Raccoon and Groot have proven that well-made anthropomorphic characters can do just fine surrounded by humans in mainstream - I can only hope my characters are just as developed by the time they're written. More details on that one when I'm closer to writing it.

Oh, and Auran Connection? My first true foray into novel-writing? I still intend to get that one out there as well. However, I've spent the past year making notes on the previous (third) draft and figuring out what needs tweaking. I've discovered this project will definitely take some more time, but I'm excited at the prospect of going back to it. There's so much I've learned since I began. There are a lot of things that need fixing. Some parts will even require complete re-writes. It's a necessary step, as there were a lot of scenes and setups I included back then that are little more than fluff and wish-fulfillment based on early concepts I didn't want to let go of. Based on my notes and the long (...long...) list of changes I made, I feel much more confident now in it being the tale I want to tell. Plus, with new material, I can better set up potential sequels!

Lastly, I've done some pondering on Kaili's story, Serenity's Edge. I still fully intend to write it, but I had an idea to do a short prequel scene for it... in comic form. I haven't tried comics in years, and I'm still cautious about it, but the visuals came together so well in my mind that I might try and muster the courage to attempt sequential art once again, hopefully with a better result this time. I won't confirm I'll try it yet, but it's a definite maybe. With my work schedule having shifted to more reasonable hours during the summer, this would be a perfect opportunity.


So... let's see how far we can go...

Otter Ael! by Aelius24
Otter Ael!
I've been informed it's Species Change Week, so I decided to become an otter!

We share a sense of playfulness and love for water, plus I love how streamlined they are as they glide through the currents.  As for why he's blue... well, I like that color more than the brown shade that most every other otter out there already is :p

Though this is only a temporary change, it's a fun one to try out for a little while.  And after Species Change Week is over?  Well, I'm sure I'll find something for him.  Knowing me he'll probably end up another Sage or superhero XD

Hi, I'm Aelius. Just a simple fennec fox from the southeastern USA.
I consider myself both a writer and artist; in my gallery you're bound to find a lot of characters who are featured in my tales (one of them I'm hoping to turn into a novel soon).

Let's see... what else...
- I'm also a Christian (no worries, I'm not the kind you see on TV ^_^)
- Love video games, writing fiction, reading fiction, drawing whatever comes into my mind, listening to music... and simply daydreaming.
- I have Attention Deficit Disorder (without the hyperactivity; it exists =p ), but I wouldn't really consider it a bad thing...
- Sorry, but I don't RP, here or anywhere else.

And for those interested, I post commissions from other artists in my Scraps gallery. Check 'em out to see if I've commissioned an artist you like :)

And of course creating an awesome story since the current one is on hold. I've managed to get all the music on a list. It's going to be great.
