The boring copyright bit


Photoshop, 2017. Cover art for Kiliq's story of the same name, showing Justin Peterson and his wife Samantha, post-transformation.
The Donkey Room

Pen and pencil, 2010. The idea behind the picture was a room absolutely filled with donkey transformation triggers: everything I could think of: wands; potions; suspicious jewellery and rings featuring donkeys; syringes marked "DNA"; nanotech devices; malevolent fairies; etcetera, etcetera. You couldn't enter the room and not become a donkey! The background on the original was rustled up using stock 3d models: this is just the actual transformation that I drew.

Pen and pencil, 2005. I'm guessing that if they became commonplace, the vast majority of transformations would result in -at best- somewhat embarrassing situations.
Help Me!

Pen, CG-coloured, 2005. I tend to go for surprise as my most frequent expression in a transformation, but sometimes there's added drama in an expression of obvious distress. This unfortunate obviously isn't changing willingly.

As you can see, my computer shading has a long way to go!
Carrot Cake

Pen and acrylic, 2003. A charicature of my good friend Posti, demonstrating that most wonderful of magical artifacts, the Hag Halter: an enchanted bridle that when worn by a human, transforms them into a horse.
Jasmine 3

Pen, CG-coloured, 2003. Yes, there was a Jasmine 2, but I never really liked it. The artwork was okay but the "emotion" of the image just seemed wrong. Then it got picked up by a flamer-site (you know the sort: if you can't create anything yourself then deride everyone else's efforts) and I just hate the sight of it now!

Pen and acylic, 2002. I'm not sure quite what I was trying to achieve with the facial expression here, but I don't think this was it. Anyway, one mare with two white socks.
The Suit

Pen, 2001. To date, my only sequence. I just run out of patience drawing the same figure time after time! This is a fairly common concept though: a fur-suit that becomes real as the wearer puts it on. Look what happens to her leg joints as she pulls it on, and then when the suit is complete, the seams just vanish.
Jasmine 1

Pen, CG-coloured, 2000. A curious fact, but Disney's Princess Jasmine seems to be the most popular trademarked character in transformation art. Perhaps it's because Alladin features such an obvious trigger: a genie.

Pen, 1998. Not much to say about this one except that I did it as a birthday present for a friend who loves winged horses.

Pen and acrylic, 1998. Based on a story by Posti. The puck-like boy is using a grooming brush on the man: with each stroke, he transforms a little.
Red Shetland

Pen, 1997. A piece of fanart I did based on Jim Groat's wonderful Red Shetland character; a furry lampoon of Red Sonya. Red is usually a horse-morph (ie, a bipedal humanoid with some equine characteristics), who strides about in her chainmail bikini righting wrongs and smiting hecklers. Her companion Eeon (the one talking) is actually a transformed horse who has been searching for the mysterious druids who changed him against his will into the warrior we see now. He desperately wants to change back.
Old Website Animations

Poser 4 and morphing software, 1997. These are the animations that appeared on the title page of Version 1 of this site.

Pen and acrylic, 1997. Depicting a friend of mine. This is what would happen if Spells'R'Us sold soda pop: Pleasure Island Soda: "Puts hair on yer chest!"
Times Up!

Pen, 1997. A very quick doodle - illustrating one of the disadvantages of sharing a house with an impatient unicorn who can't wait his turn to check his e-mail account. Not enough people appreciate this.

Pen and marker, 1997. Part of a long-running joke with a good friend: we used to try and set each other up with ways in which our ideal shape-shifts could go wrong. On another occassion his desire to become an Arab steed saw him transformed into a camel!

Acrylic, 1997. Same duel, different episode! The black Arab is my friend - he succesfully gained his ideal form in this one - but accidentally drew his wife into the spell too. As you can see, she didn't appreciate it!

Pen and acrylic. A charicature of my good friend Posti, demonstrating that most wonderful of magical artifacts, the Hag Halter: an enchanted bridle that when worn by a human, transforms them into a horse.

CGI: Poser 4 & Paintshop Pro. A computer sketch really: I rendered a horse and a woman and then used Paintshop to cut'n'paste and blend the two. It isn't great -the raised foreleg is all wrong- but I kind of like the effect.

Pen and acrylic, 1997. This was inspired by someone else's picture of a cow-girl, and I really like the way it came out; especially the look of comical surprise on her face. I've since learnt that this image has been popular on several pony-girl-fetish sites, although it is supposed to be a transformation picture.
Ponygirl 2

Pen, CG-coloured, 1997. My first CG-coloured picture - and it shows. I hope I'll get better one day!
Inconvenience 1

Pen, 1995. I had an idea for a series (bad idea - I never stick with series; that's why I've done so few sequences); humorous sketches of bad places to spontaneously transform into a unicorn. I was a train driver at the time so...

Please note the leaf! I know leaves on the line are a perrenial joke on British railways, but if you've ever tried to stop a crowded commuter train doing 100mph on a damp autumn day, you'll know how unfunny it can be! Allow two miles to stop!
Inconvenience 2

Pen, 1995. A fairly obvious pun, but it had to be done didn't it?
Meadowe & Flicka

Acrylic. A scene from a Dungeons & Dragons game. The pinto is my faerie character, Flicka (now spelt Flicker) who is a phouka, able to change between horse and human forms. She also had the ability to similarly transform others. Meadowe was a wood-elf mage - we needed a disguise and Flicka didn't actually stop to ask what Meadowe thought of the idea...

Incidentally, the clouds in the sky were studiously painted from a photograph, and to my thinking, look horribly unrealistic: copying reality sometimes results in unrealistic artwork!

Pen and acrylic. I rather like the way this one came out. The story (never written) was that Alith was a technician in a Stargate-like lab, where parallel universes could "influence" your form if you weren't adequately shielded. One day locating a world in which unicorns could be seen, Alith (a bit of a "plain-Jane" in her own eyes) deliberately exposed herself to it.

Acrylic. My first piece of transformation fiction was an ambitious novel-length effor called The Unicorn's Friend. The protagonist, Vance, is tricked into drinking a transformative potion by a Circe-like sorceress that changes him slowly into a palomino stallion. In the picture, he has been rescued by his travelling companions, a young mage named Axis, the unicorn Carrisan, and an android called Spider. The transformation is a painful one, and so Axis has placed a sleep on him.

Pen, 1993. Norman was the protagonist of a short story by Stephen Donaldson, called Mythological Beast, about a man living in a mentally-controlled utopian world where everything is "perfectly safe and perfectly sane". Until, that is, Norman begins to transform into a unicorn. One of my favourite stories of all time!
Instant Polymorph

Acrylic, 1988. My first piece of tf art! A pun based on the Dungeons & Dragons spell for shape-shifting. Incidentally, I was rather proud of the background - people that knew me could actually identify the books on the shelves (the yellow books below the unicorn's belly for example, are the three volumes of Piers Anthony's Split Infinity trilogy. The red-backed unicorn on the wall was part of a promo-poster for the group Magnum.
