Welcome back to another week of awesome furry artwork!

Last week was the rise of the paintings, and this week we’ve got an intriguing mix up of different art. We’ve got art that’ll pull on the heartstrings, odd blob-like creations, and a piece that goes part fan art, part original character.

Let’s kick it off with the #7 pick:

7. Spirit Adventuring Time

Starting off this week is a pretty cool painting commission by Eruca featuring this white-furred fellow. Has he been in this series before? I think he has. Regardless, it’s a very beautiful scene, with lots of twisting trees and a great blue lake that gives a nice fantasy forest feeling. And the gear that our horned character is wearing adds a touch of fearless adventuring and exploration to things.

6. Aurora Parallelus

Speaking of fantastic fantasy, check out this #5 piece by Piper Thibodeau. It’s such a colorful and vivid piece, and the design of the deer with its star-like sparkling fur really captures the imagination and gives a great, otherworldly feeling to them. It’s almost as if the deer itself is some sort of constellation come to life. Couple that with a well-executed reflection and you’ve got quite the #5 pick!

5. *~*

From one type of star to another I suppose? Except instead of constellation stars, we’ve got rock stars! Fivel once again brings the bright, striking colors to our series for the #4 pick. I always like seeing how they do reptilian creatures, as they always do great on making them look like they have scales. The shading on this is also really nice, and goes with the rocker attitude, as well as the alluring look of the character.

4. No Heartbreak

Typically Silverfox’s pieces are very much on the light-hearted and fun side, but this week, they brought out something that wasn’t light-hearted as much as broken-hearted. Look at this poor little fellow – they got a damaged, glowing balloon-heart they barely managed to patch up. And the tears really seal the deal here – as does the shreds of a previously destroyed balloon-heart. Silverfox really captures the emotion in this piece too – it’s sad, but very well done.

Don’t get too sad, though, we’ve got the honorable mentions to look at:

Some magical honorable right? Now, let’s check out the top three, starting with:

3. It’s Alive!

It might not be October yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have spooky monsters coming to life! Spazzfur kicks off the top three with this creepy, gooey-looking monster that appears to be breaking loose from its outer furry shell. Or maybe it’s something that the character wears? Either way, the eyeless head of the fur looks really off-putting, and the whole picture leaves me curious and wanting o know more.

2. Dark Bells

Istrandar continues the creepy trend with another one of their dark fantasy pictures. This time, instead of a giant goop monster, it’s a four-armed owl-like creature. It’s a creepy owl too, with a strange marking on its forehead and solid black eyes. Then again, it’s hard not to be incredibly creepy when you’re hanging around crows and painting sigils of blood on bells.

And now, the top pick of the week is:

1. Master of Both

Holy slashing powers of soul and ice! Is this some awesome-looking Soulcalibur-inspired fan art or what? Pacelic takes the #1 spot this week with this amazing commission featuring a dragon that’s managed to master both Soulcalibur and Souledge. In the world of Soulcalibur, that’s no easy task, as both swords are sentient, one is good and the other is evil, and on top of all of that….it’s mainly what the casts in all of the games are slashing each other over. And the level of detail here is simply astounding – I nearly mistook this for a 3D render when I first saw it. The way the artist brought to life things like the swords and the steel of the character’s armor is just that good.

Congratulations and well-done Pacelic, your piece is the #1 pick for this week!

And that brings another list of awesome furry art to a close. Hopefully, you found this list pretty cool – but did you find any other awesome art I missed? Let me know in the comments below, and I’ll see you all next week!
