The Art of Silverclaw

I would be remiss if I didn't devote a post to one of my absolute favorite transformation artists: Silverclaw, whose artwork can be found on Fur Affinity under the name "Silverclaw1". The site requires registration, but it's more than worth it to have access to Silverclaw's spirited drawings. Her work is truly full of life. Take for instance her much-renown ability with facial expressions--her characters survey their changing limbs with genuine shock, consternation, and curiosity, and she can draw a thousand variations on these mixed emotions. And when her characters' changing bodies writhe and thrash around, her kinetic command of anatomy is enhanced by her cartoony style, which in turn accentuates the drama and humor of transformation. And luckily for this blog Silverclaw likes drawing "pretty boys"as the subject of transformations.

Her account is full of TF goodness, and I'd like to highlight a few of my personal favorites. Entries that are not safe for work have been marked and require registration.

Let's start with some early work, such as the Otter transformation in "Deep Water."

Here's an early sequence involving wolves in "A Day At the Mall": 01, 02, 03.

"Donkey Cabbage" (NSFW) shows another of her strengths, Donkey TFs: 01, 02, 03.

Kangaroos of course are the subject of "Walkabout."

Donkeys make a braying (and NSFW) return in "Pleasure Island Bar": 01, 02, 03.

Silverclaw's biggest, greatest sequence yet also involves donkeys. Behold the epic length, lovingly detailed "First Change" (NSFW):
01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16.

There's even more TF art at Silverclaw's account. Drop by and say hello, and thank her for all her art. Good artists always need encouragement!
