A #CoatiMonday featuring a con badge my dear bride commissioned from Kalinka at the last FurFright. She thought I'd never have a chance to wear it but Motor City Furry Con, theoretically a spring convention, is usually wintery enough to need it.
And I just found a scan of it by Kalinka is at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/13128749/
This #CoatiMonday gift from my darling dear BunnyHugger is a coati carved from a nut (I forget the kind); bits of the shell make the nose. It's precious and beautiful.
The extensions on the snout may represent whiskers (we don't usually have tusks), or might have been something the carver needed to handle the material. I can't say for sure.
I took a bunch of photographs and they all washed out detail. Come over my place and you can get a good look at it.
A tabletop doodle of my own creation this #CoatiMonday. Motor City Furry Con this year (as usual) had paper tablecloths and boxes of crayons to play with and so I doodled me snuggling with BunnyHugger. She added the hearts. Someone else, not me, put the 'Art By [ some name I didn't photograph ]' which was there when I started drawing. Didn't want to overlap like that but I had to draw somewhere, you know?
A tabletop doodle of my dear bride's creation this #CoatiMonday. Motor City Furry Con encourages this with paper and crayons in the con suite and it allows for spontaneous little happy drawing like this. BunnyHugger wanted to draw herself loafing, but the eye came out looking a bit angry, so she added the z-z-z which made her a perfectly content drowsy rabbit. This is the sort of rapid thinking needed when you work in real media.
Comfort this #CoatiMonday, thanks to Alex_J_Cleret on birdsite drawing my common impulse to try and help. It's usually my first impulse and I don't always know, or have much, I can do, but it's there.
Also I really like how I look in purples.
This #CoatiMonday is another gift from my dear bride. It's a rubber stamp that expresses a universal sentiment.
It's one of two stamps made about 15 years ago by Rubber Hedgehog and I set it in the paws of my old NABCO coati plush to give a sense of scale, for those who know how big the NABCO plush is. (The plush is about six inches tall; the stamp is maybe an inch and a half across.)
Another Rubber Hedgehog-made stamp, and gift from my wife, this #CoatiMonday. This stamp has a good bit of use, as my identifying mark for letterboxing.
Letterboxing is a geocaching-like hobby, about finding hidden journals to stamp. Most folks carve their own stamps; I used this because I wasn't sure I would do enough to make carving worthwhile. I should retire this in favor of something homemade, but keep not having the time or energy.
I bring a piece of my own art ( https://www.furaffinity.net/view/47153051/ ) so #CoatiMonday can properly observe #MerMay. The fish half is loosely based on sturgeons, which you never see used for mermaids, because I'm just like that.
This also was part of what's been my most-accomplished week of FurAffinity uploads. I'm *stunned* and so happy with how close this comes to what it looked like in my head.
My own art again this #CoatiMonday. It's me trying to help Zukaro, the wax robot fox, calm an anxiety that, for them, is actually justified. (They have a hard time dealing with feet.) Original at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/47282393/
Zukaro and a lot of melty art are at https://www.furaffinity.net/gallery/zukarotravon/
A winner is this #CoatiMonday! LunaTheCute did this line art of Austin having snagged a sandwich. The illustration was a prize won at Furry Bingo this year during Motor City Furry Con and it's a delight to have a fresh picture of me doing one of my favorite activities, bringing joy to whoever just had a sandwich before.
By the way if you ever need cheering up look for videos of 'coati steals sandwich'. You're welcome.
#CoatiMonday today features an old Patreon reward, a postcard sketch by FA/Slickpuppy, from back when I was flush with cash and thought I'd have ideas for monthly sketches forever. (I ran out of ideas after the second month and Slickpuppy suspended his Patreon after that.)
Note the crescent moon on the foreleg there; this is the rare picture showing what I'd once tried to make a motif of my character.
It's a Saturday Morning #CoatiMonday! projectionedge@birdsite generously drew this fine nostalgia piece during one of his streams ( https://twitter.com/projectionedge/status/1534005858937360384 ) and, accurately, picked out one of those 70s Hanna-Barbera cartoons I couldn't get enough of.
Leaping into summer this #CoatiMonday. This gorgeous picture was generously done by @/email@example.com and shows one of my favorite activities. Original at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/47668808/
Being painted is my most idiosyncratic special interest, and I'm happy to have any pictures that showcase it.
This #CoatiMonday is part of a complete breakfast! And thanks to PatchO'Black, on SpinDizzy Muck, whose fun recent paint job landed me this tasty cereal mascoati job. This is another piece of my own art (see https://www.furaffinity.net/view/47863795/ ) but, uh, watch this space.
I'd *love* to do something in the style of 70s Rocky-and-Bullwinkle Cheerios comic book ads, but I lack the expertise in serial cartooning.
It's a summertime #CoatiMonday, as wax robot fox FA/ZukaroTravon and I beat the heat by completely surrendering to it. This is my own illustration, done with a surprisingly successful experiment in digital watercolors, as seen at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/46058800/
I owe Zukaro thanks for rekindling my interest in melting/liquid scenes and getting me to draw them.
Keeping cool this #CoatiMonday, thanks to FA/techno. kindly giving me a lovely marble-and-gold goop coating. Remember to keep the hottest sun off of you!
I don't know that the picture's posted on a proper gallery.
Gosh it sure would be unthinkable and embarrassing if this goop congealed into a solid mass leaving me a statue for the week, wouldn't it?
Enjoying a happy summer shower this #CoatiMonday with my own art, and experiment in drawing weather.
Done partly as Vahno-on-Birdsite was encouraging about my shiny art and my big fat foot-covering boots, so I looked for an excuse to do a little more of that. I'm sure it's a wild coincidence that I come out looking as shiny as the rubber boots and yellow hat here. Also because /@balloonpup has a lot of rubber characters who wear rain gear and I wanted in.
Enjoy seeing less of me this #CoatiMonday as I get into the invisible paint. This was fun but hard, because I had to keep thinking about what to show. The paint bucket particularly made my head hurt to think about.
I drew the snout differently this time, with more of a Preston Blair influence. Not sure if it works, but it's got a fun line to it.
Having a bit of fun hanging out poolside with @/Eon, your inflatable friend, this #CoatiMonday! Also with one of those padlock stickers that people are so silly about putting on null toys. Anyway look how happy toy is hanging out like this.
My own art and wow but I feel good about how this came out.
CW: mindplay/hypnosis theme; consenting but one might read it as accidental.
A statuesque #CoatiMonday as I share my own picture of me somehow a block of living marble. It's a fun way to hang out and prank pigeons!
A while back someone messing around on FurryMuck flashed me with a Medusa Head, with no idea that I was going to run with that. You never expect how many people will ask why you're able to move and talk and all. I choose to think they're worried for me rather than wishing I were inert.
Another #CoatiMonday showing off that sweet cereal mascoati gig! FA/techno. didn't create just the one image of me with a bowl of breakfast cereal, but did a color variant that's got a similar yet not identical vibe. Great fun to have a bit of variety, though, as part of your complete breakfast.
Going for a good stretch this #CoatiMonday. I have an elastic side I don't play enough and I'm trying to get that fixed. So this picture is based on the title panel for the story 'Bubble Gum' in Plastic Man #11, https://comicbookplus.com/?dlid=19957 page 15.
I posted it at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/49082066/ too. It's made me realize there's potential in ripping off^W^W studying Jack Cole's work for my own use.
Toy was so kind as to let me put it on, and draw this, as you can see at https://www.furaffinity.net/view/49430374/ and this is one of the rare pictures where I'm just happy at how *everything* came out. A picture is never quite how you imagine it'll look, but this came much closer than anything else I've drawn the past month.
A long while ago she mentioned a passing fancy of holding a tiny me and I finally illustrated it. (Somehow I usually tend to be the giant one.) You can pick whether this is a giant BunnyHugger or a tiny me, or both.
For this #CoatiMonday please enjoy two porcelain coati figures, apparently the same mould but slightly different after being fired. And painted.
The naturalistic-colored one was a gift from my dear bride to me months ago and I've shown it before. The Delft-style one on the right is one she bought recently and for herself.
Any resemblance to a before-and-after petrifaction sequence is coincidental.
