Fandom Life Furries

Check Out These Creative Artists of the Furry Fandom

What’s a fandom without some artists?
 
The furry fandom has its own collection of artists that cover all sorts of different mediums and styles.
 
Let’s take a very small glimpse at some of these fuzzy artists.
 
Actually, it’s kinda more or less microscopic! There are hundreds of artists in the fandom and…can I even call this scratching the surface?
 
What makes furry artists unique is the huge amount of original characters produced.
 
Fanart? Of course, that’s still a thing.
 
But wander around the art of the furry fandom and you’ll be lost in a sea of original characters.
 
Furry artists also provide services to the furry fandom on top of the content they produce.
 
Many furry artists make their way – and living – off of doing commissions for other furries. These range from drawings to character badges, and even reference sheets for characters.
 
Why, if it weren’t for the furry artists, lots of furries would never be able to see their characters come to life. So, artists of the fandom, this one’s for you.
 
Now, let’s have us a look at the artists I have in store for you all today.
 

There Was Me, That is Clockwork

 Clockwork Raccoon has been active as a furry artist for quite some years. She is no stranger to the SoCal furry scene.
 
And a few years ago I started commissioning her to draw artwork for characters in my stories.
 
What’s great about Clockwork is that one, she likes A Clockwork Orange. Her character’s real name is even Piper DeLarge. That and her art has a distinct, cute cartoon look to it.
 
She also dabbles in plenty of different mediums, from traditional art to one of her main attractions: the Lenticular Badge. Check it out:
Lenticular Badge 1 - Clockwork
Clockwork shows off one of her awesome lenticular badges in a commission for Tensai.

Now isn’t that neat? It’s not too often you see a transforming character badge!

Though if you’re ever thinking about snagging one of these beauties for yourself you’d better pay close attention to Clockie’s journals and Twitter announcements – the limited slots for these fill up fast!
 
Clockie’s also a furry that does the good ol’ “sketch by pencil and trace digitally” thing, as you can see with this side-by-side comparison.
I dig the rainbow effects on the phoenix’s tail, too!
 
Speaking of sketches done by hand, she’s also dabbled in doing more hand-drawn commissions.
 
If you’re interested in checking out more of Clockwork’s art, click here to go to her Fur Affinity. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have animations up for the Lenticular Badges’ transformations. Still neat to see the art, though!
 
If you’ve never been to FA, well it’s the Face Book of the furry fandom.
 
And while NSFW is on there, all guest users have NSFW content locked. In fact, it won’t even appear on the site, unlike some other places. You’ll only be able to enable NSFW art if you make an account.
 
Though don’t test it on Clockie’s gallery, as it’s completely SFW.
 

A Quiet Song for the Forest

While some furries dabble in hand-drawn work, others come off like masters of it.
 
One such artist is Luthien Nightwolf.
 
Using a professional blend of colored pencil and inks Luthien brings to live vivid fantasy images that never fail to be breathtaking, whisking the viewer to far off, distant fantasy worlds.
 
Look at this amazing artwork:
A Lost Kingdom of Peace - Luthien Nightwolf
“A Lost Kingdom of Peace” by Luthien Nightwolf
She specializes in making full, beautiful fantasy backdrops to go with her characters. So much that this is one of the few caveats when commissioning her: she’ll only do fantasy artwork.
 
But it’s fantastic fantasy fun, so I’m not complaining. She’s also produced other kinds of artwork, such as bookmarks and badges.
 
If you get a commission by her make sure you watch her FaceBook page, as she’ll post images showing her progress on a commission.
 
I got one of my characters done and she finished it within a matter of hours from the sketch step all the way to the completed product. It is something to see.
In The Deep Woods - Luthien Nightwolf
“In the Deep Woods” by Luthien Nightwolf
So if you find yourself fancying some flawless fantasy frolics, you should totally check out Luthien Nightwolf’s FA.
 
Be wary if you make an account there, as there is NSFW art that peppers her page. It’s no less fantastical fantasy work though – no pun intended.
 

Digital Minotaur Goodness

Minibell, also known as Nastacula to the SoCal furries, is a great artist that offers up some super vivid digital style artwork.
 
Minibell’s art offers some pretty sweet and colorful submissions, with bright colors and intensity.
 
Not only that, but she’s just as capable of drawing something badass as they are something adorable.
 
And check out this commission they did for a furry that all but begs to to have an 80’s synthesizer riff:
Insert Coin, Press Start - Nastacula
“Insert Coin, Press Start” by Nastacula

But Minibell is no stranger to doing hand-drawn work, as they have took on pen-and-pencil commissions when out and about at conventions.

She also often sells prints of previous original artwork or fan artwork. Check out this fierce but cute traditional drawing she did this past year at Califur 2017:
Pawscreen vs. Evil Dead - Nastacula
“Pawscreen vs. Evil Dead” by Nastacula

Whether you like ‘em badass 80’s, cute and tumbly, or petit and fierce, you should definitely check out Minibell’s FA page.

Account-holders beware if you check out her other account, Nastacula, as there be NSFW drawings!
 
And that’s about all the time I’ve got for this fuzzy furry frenzy.
