Here be Fire by StressedJenny Here be Fire by StressedJenny
I think I'll be getting Neolithic on yer asses for a while.

This drawing is a result of watching too much Princess Mononoke and reading too much Jeff Smith. Bah! Theres no such thing as reading and watching too much of either of those!
Give me more!

Good old traditional inkbrush. This pics been waiting since march to get coloured. It went completely in the wrong direction. She was originally supposed to be in a snowwy landscape... yeah... Right.
Flames are far more hardcore. Better colours too.

Ah, I'm so pleased with it! Hope you dig.

Ha, wow this really IS a perfect blend of Mononoke and Jeff Smith!! I LOVE your inking in that regard, especially the classic Jeff Smith color palette too. Strong pose, and really great image overall

Is there such a thing as too much "Mononoke" when it churns out stuff like this?

Nah, I don't think so. I think I'll do a proper tribute to Mononoke one day too.

I dig! :) Did you reference the pose from a photo somewhere? I thought I might asked, it's a nice capture for the character. :)

Anyways, I really like the piece. :)

Crouching saber-toothed tiger, hidden mammoth :D I can totally imagine her in the snow storm, but her actual look is way more cool, as you said. The light is fantastic, just as though she was standing on the verge of some volcano crater (man, what would she be doing there? Making burnt offering? ;)) Anyway, I adore your prehistoric stuff and would have nothing against you getting Neolitic on my ass.
