After finishing taxes today I used my Paint Shop Pro program to browse the files I saved off of my dying portable drive. This was fitting as PSP was my first picture editing software (and a bootleg version it was, in 1997). I'm floored at the information that was on here: my first webpages from both IDS.net (now defunct) and www.tigress.com/moonhare/ :o) So many pics! A lot of computer/mouse drawn and even more sketchy stuff. I'm so happy to see these again.

Like this one-



1997- Someone random in chat asked for a picture of a hug. Can't say if they liked this, but I did.

I had a happy half hour just browsing folders. The files range from 1996 to about 2011. I didn't read the text files but concentrated on the draws and other pictures: I'm a visual kind of fur ;o)

I remember drawing these rabbits during my "Franz Marc" period



I love Marc's use of colors and his mysticism and symbolism. I can't touch that, but at the time I was really into blues and yellows in my coloring and painting.

I used to draw randomly on whatever paper was available: I had it bad! I got the idea along the way to bind up pics in like groups, like this little book of deities-



I have to find that booklet again and look at what is included. I think my angus dei is in it along with my St. Luke draws, but maybe it's just some Babylonian stuff (like the water colored calf on the cover).

As I say to myself frequently, I need to get back into this again!

Nice pics. I'm glad you were able to recover them. (And the rest of those old files, too.)

It's a treat to see some of these and to recall their history. Half of the pics are from my early LJ days- pics saved from my camera to files. The rest are the old-dragged-from-computer-to-computer type of things, like boxes one moves house to house to but doesn't open.

Nostalgia is soooo wunnerful.... ^V^ .. one of these days I hope to run thru the ole files from the 1990s from my retired machines also.....

There is a trove of material on the 386 that I have yet to tap into. Much of that I have on this drive, but there are other memories still to relive :o)

I rather wish I still had more of my work - but then, maybe it'd just remind me how badly I've been slacking off. Still, I do finally have the supplies I'll need to resume, at long last. ^_^

You have a cute, toony style. ^_^ I hope we'll see more of it!

And that is indeed an adorbs hug. ^_^

I'd love to see your work, old and new! *sigh* Halloween 2005 was the last day I painted any serious watercolor. Every year I say I'll start again...

I remember a fur in chat feeling sad over losing all their old draws in a fire or something, and wondered how I would feel if it were my things. I think that was when I started putting my papers in folders and little booklets.

Thanks for the kind words, too. I love(d) drawing/coloring/painting. I draw best when happy, and was very happy doing these :o)
