Hello as always! Here is my next Inktober instalment. Today’s word for this one was “Fierce”. I think I did alright.
For translation and clarity, the text in the artwork says: “Yes I’m a lioness. I’m an Underrated Queen among hunters. Relaxed, I keep my pace. Why should I Roar? I’m just as Fierce like this!”.
For this entry, I wanted to create something a bit different relating to the word “Fierce”. I also wanted to make a couple of cultural points. The first being that Lionesses are not as popular than the more obvious big cats are when it comes to art (at least, that’s my opinion). The second being that a big cat like a lion (or any other) doesn’t need to roar or be angry to look fierce.
Using sepia ink and Indian ink washes, I tried to capture the lioness in a pure as form as possible to convey my message. The quote is supposed to provide an added flavour of how fierce a calm lioness can look. It is criminally done I must admit, but then I am tired, and it’s beginning to show.
Now…Time for my Back 2 The Liner story. See below.
Dagger is hanging on by a thread, but something miraculous happens!
For translation and clarity, the text reads: “The battle between witch and warriors was getting ever more FIERCE by the moment. Dagger’s will to hang tough was slipping away… when at last, a miraculous stroke of luck came! Boundhund began to glow and Dagger knew what to do. With all strength, he smashed his blade down on his foe.”
I’m not even going to talk much here, but I will say a couple of things –
Yes, I do feel the way Dagger looks in this episode (top left).
No, I haven’t had a breakdown just yet, although I was thinking of buying one from an online shop(!)
Thanks so much to those who are following along, I genuinely appreciate it, but for now, I’m calling it a night!
Well, as usual, I hope you enjoy my entries. See you next time for the next word “Mysterious”!
