IF: Fearless

Updated image 5/13/2010: Now I need a background. I may mess with the wolf's tail to make the tail between the legs more obvious. Click on the image to see more armor and hair detail.

This is a drawing I was working on about a year ago that I never finished (please click on the image to see details). It is a supposed to be a metaphor, or symbolic, for wearing the armor of God and the attitude we should have facing our enemy. When my son got sick, last May, my attitude was adjusted and it took me a longtime to feel anywhere near this strong; maybe that is why I have taken so long to return to this drawing. I always liked it and hopefully I will be able to finish it soon.

14 x 9 inches, graphite and pen on watercolor paper.

Very cool. Its got movement and feeling. I'm scared just looking at it.

Great sketch! At first, I thought it was a kobold taming a warg. I guess the metaphor still rings true with that interpretation.

Thanks for the comments.

Pasztohy Lili: It is supposed to be a sheep in armor; but with the spike on the head I could the unicorn mistake. Thanks for stopping by.
