Now that my fancomic is finished (this: (Zootopia spoiler) Right before that intense scene by Aelius24 It's just a one-shot), I can catch up on things around here.... no, wait, this is finals week...

Okay, NEXT week I can catch up on all the messages that have piled up since FWA XD

Tonight, however, I can say a bit THANK YOU to everyone that's been faving my work lately! Too many for me to count here on dA, and rather than responding to each individually, I'd just like everyone to know that I appreciate your... well, appreciation of my work ^_^ There's still more to come!

(Zootopia spoiler) Right before that intense scene
Zootopia spoilers inbound!

This is what I envision might've happened before that crucial point of the film's climax. It's a pivotal moment for both Judy and Nick, as it shows what they both accomplished together and tests what they've learned. By now, we see that Nick helped Judy overcome her subconscious fear of foxes (to the point that she let him stalk her, and put his jaws around her neck), and in doing so, after everything they both have been through together, Judy helped Nick finally fulfill the Ranger Scout oath he had taken all those years ago.

I, Nicholas Wilde, promise to be brave, loyal, helpful, and... trustworthy.


I haven't drawn fanart in years, and I haven't drawn comics in even longer! It goes to show you the impact this film had on me. You'll find my initial thoughts on Zootopia back in my Journals, and this comic here is over just one more aspect of the film I couldn't help but admire. The friendship they built is well-earned, and even after seeing it multiple times in the theater, I still wanna see it again. Hunting for reference material for these comic only increased that desire.

...

The wait for the Blu-ray release is gonna be rough...

Arjuna by Aelius24
Arjuna
Hey look, a gazelle!

You may have seen this handsome fellow's original sketch a while back. I decided to color him up in hopes of using his various stages as commission tier examples at FWA this year.

Interestingly enough, he shares a particular connection to FWA in regards to how I came up with him. I hinted at this in his original sketch, but here I can go into a bit more detail...

I first designed him way back at FWA '10, inspired not only by my love of this particular animal but also by the creative and varied styles of fursuits I saw walking around. He was meant to be a dancer in my stories, though that too was inspired later on by the fursuit dances I'd watch, mainly at FWA, in the years after.

It wasn't until Anthrocon last year when I watched the fursuit dance competition that he made himself known in my imagination once more. Impressed by the dances I saw, I began coming up with dance acts in my own mind, pondering a variety of energetic, acrobatic moves just barely possible within the confines of a fursuit. Interestingly enough... this gazelle was the one pulling them off, not my fennec.

This creative inspiration continued as the months went by, and seeing as he developed more and more during that time, not just in skill but also in a connection to ME, I decided to adopt him into my roster of fursonae. So here he is, myself in yet another form, an alternative species to complement Aelius the fennec in the same way Kaili, Ikaia, Talon, and the others have in the past. It's only fitting that his official debut in this form will be at FWA, the same convention where he first came into being six years ago.

This is Arjuna.

Gaz-ael! by Aelius24
Gaz-ael!
Given my recent sketch, it's easy to assume this svelte 'zelle was a natural reaction, but in truth it's actually a redesigning of gazelle male I created waaaay back in 2010, six years ago!

Inspiration to redesign him actually came last year at Anthrocon, but only now have I finally gotten around to drawing him again. And yes, the lightning marks do mean he's an alternative take on my fursona :p (Let's see, that's... seven species now, I think).

I've admired gazelles for years, and ever since the first sketch have been ironing out the possibility of adapting one into my roster. It comes as no surprise that one would be popping up on occasion. The fact he shares the same species as my latest furry-crush? Happy coincidence ^_^

Officially, his name is Arjuna, and he happens to be a acquaintance of Kaili.

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 :)
