William and the Wizard

William the Crow is a member of the Wizard's family, but I should let you know in his younger years he did get into a great deal of trouble. This next series of drawings is what happened to William after he wouldn't stop harassing the fairies and chasing them in a quite unsportmanlike manner. The Wizard warned him to leave the Fairies alone, but William chose to ignore the Wizard's sage advice. William, women no matter how small, can pack quite a wallop when you get them mad enough!

Now it does not take a crystal ball to tell the Wizard that the little Fairy has a legitimate complaint against William. William of course blaims it on another bird that looks similar to him, but of course not as handsome. The Wizard is tired of being a referee, and the fairies are a wee bit weary of Williams shennanigans.
William soon forgets how much trouble he is already in, and once again dive bombs the little fairies and wreaks havoc with their wings and their lovely summer frocks. When his misdeeds are once again brought to the attention of the Wizard, William swears that he is a friend to all Fairies, and he would never cause them grief. William can't help but chuckle to himself about how good he is about getting out of trouble with his clever words and innocent expression. Oh're not fooling anyone but yourself.

To be continued tomorrow...

The Wizard and William

The Wizard is based on Marion Skydancer, a photographer and a wonderful white hair and beard model. William the crow is out of my imagination, friend, pet and troublemaker. William has taken on a life of his own, and is always thinking up naughty things to do, such as pester the local fairies and take a nip out of their wings. He never will admit he is the culprit, and he really should never make a female angry even if she is only two inches tall. The Wizard and William are trying to save all the animals, creatures, and birds of the earth with the help of other like minded humans.
The Wizard is of course sometimes subject to the normal ills and problems that plague all of mankind, but his good friends here and in the world of magic always join together to help him overcome obstacles in his path.

Computer Crashings and Modern Inconviences

I had my first major crash in my computer since owning this bad boy in 2003, and I learned alot about service and trouble shooting my computer from this hellacious experience. I also was aided my a lovely woman named Caroline from the Phillipines, and I am very grateful for her expertise and help in this matter. She is with Dell, the maker of my computer, and I can't thank her enough for getting me up and running again plus installing all my programs for creating new artwork.

I have worked on a drawing or painting a day for the past year and a half, and have been uploading them to http.// My house is more crowded with art work than ever, and it doesn't look like it will slow down soon.

At Deviant Art I have met some very wonderful people, and have laughed more in the last year than probably in my entire life time. The Deviant Art site is wonderful because you have a world wide audience, plus get instant feedback on what you submit. And I do mean within seconds of submitting a piece of art work you can have five faves and a number of comments. Plus you get to be exposed to many other artists all over the world, and quickly gain a network of friends with common interests and life views.

I'm going to put up some of my drawings of the Wizard who is based on the great modeling of Marion Skydancer a stock photographer and a creative artist seen at http.// I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them.

I am at Deviant Art now, and posting new paintings or drawings every day. If you want to see what I'm up to on a daily basis go to the link above. I have been drawing a great deal of dragons, wizards, chickens, and birds and animals. Today I decided to share all the watercolor of chickens I've worked on.

Why chickens? I love their versatility, their crazy expressions, and the great variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. So today have fun with my chickens, and REMEMBER:
