I get that. True peace must always come from within. We should all concentrate on kindness for our own sakes as much as for the sake of others. Besides, carrying a child demands as much strength and balance as any martial art. I think your art is amazing, thank you for sharing it...
I do believe that responsibility for another life makes me a stronger person. I hope I'll be able to grow a nice person into this world ^^ Pregnancy is unexpectedly easy on me, so I can't say I was having a hard time. My due date is 16 of April,so wish me luck ^_- And thank you for your kind words!
There is a real sense of controlled violence here. Fantasy art has too long been filled with super model thin female warriors with huge swords. I to am a practitioner of martial arts as well as bodybuilding. I'm sure that your training gave you insight into the importance of strength and balance when creating this wonderful image.
I know what you mean XD I did try to be more realistic here, tho I can't judge thin and sexy girls warriors,cause I like and draw them too - it depends on style I need. But I know this atmosphere of threat, and I love this air of danger. Once you get into it,you become adrenalin junkie,and once you leave, there is a gap in your life. But now I'm too pregnant and womanly - so I should concentrate on been warm and loving >>
