Digger

I’ve been at Further Confusion all weekend, so today you get a seriously nifty bit of fan art by Eugene Arenhaus. Is this cool or what?

    Haha… kinda cool. :)

  2. Otookee says:

    “Arenhaus” actually, as per the signature. Nice guy, living in Israel I believe, inventor of a graceful vaguely feline/mustelid race called the Focco.

  3. capriox says:

    Whoa, super awesome extra cool!

  4. Rhio2k says:

    Not gonna lie…she’s cute, despite the murderous intentions.

  5. BlueAloe says:

    The texture on her fur is INCREDIBLE.

  6. Gwennan says:

    Oh that is cool!

  7. larksilver says:

    wow.

  8. Hawk says:

    Amazing art!
    Also, if I saw this coming for me screeching that battle cry, I would be gone like the Roadrunner in the old cartoons.
    *POOF*

    Awesome :D

    Cool? No, its not cool.

    It’s FUCKING AWESOME.

    Yay, my work at Digger! *waves*

    Here you can see the sketches for it: http://chiseledrocks.com/main/galleries/illustrations/topics/digger_tunnel17

    Eugene is indeed an exceptional artist. Check out his new-and-improved Web site for much more of his sometimes-whimsical, always impressive artwork. (And the striking novel cover he did for me 10 years ago!)

    Remember Tunnel 17!!! :mrgreen:

  13. Dave T. says:

    Wow, I didn’t realize that Eugene was still around!

  14. Jewelwolf says:

    I remember that time… It was the first time we met Ed. This is a great drawing. I should go to that website and see if I can contact him just to thank him for that art.

  15. Kayru says:

    Wow. That is pretty neat.

  16. SongCoyote says:

    Hey Ursula!

    What a lovely piece of Fan Art… and Eugene’s site is pretty nifty! How lucky you are :)

    It was a great pleasure to meet you at last at FurCon. Thanks for chatting with me about life, art, and inspiration. I appreciate the time you took, and I’m very glad the Con was fun for you (or at least it certainly seemed so from the way you spoke about it).

    Rest well in the after-con haze, and have a great year and then some!

    Light and laughter,

    THE Arenhaus? My gosh, I love his work.

  18. Hamor says:

    Awesome artwork there, ditto the comment about the fur texture!

  19. BunnyRock says:



    REMEMBER TUNNEL 17!!!

  20. Otookee says:

    Arenhaus has added to his site the prelim sketches and wombat reference drawings he used to make this pic. Also a comment: “This was great fun to draw, partly because Digger is such a great comic, but also because wombats are fun to draw in general. It is their intrinsic quality. Drawing wombats is not unlike doing that famous exercise for animators, expressing emotion with a sack of flour.” :D

  21. Otookee says:

    and with a link to an article on said flour sack:
    http://www.tallgrassradio.com/blog/2005/05/that-poor-misunderstood-sack-of-flour.html

    Lot of interesting articles on that site about cartooning, animation, and creativity in general. Definitely adding it to my bookmarks.

  22. Lord the 22nd says:

    Never suspected Eugene could raw so well. Awesome!

  23. Kisame says:

    Err… Il chose what. Digger dosent look too good in brown. And she has whiskers. Nothing says digger then a lack of whiskers

  24. GM_Seth says:

    Epic Win!

  25. KiyaraSabel says:

    OH MY GOD I NEED A POSTER OF THIS!

    NEEDS IT PRECIOUSSSSSSSSS!

    By all the gods how can I get a poster of this? Work some deal of financial finangly and sell posters of this for the love of all that is good and awesome. This will be my great motivator the thing I can look to when I’m feeling groggy and lazy and not wanting to clean the filthy squalor of living with lazier roommates.
