Girl Fight

Girl FightSo, I’m working on a series for my portfolio in my spare time.  It revolves around the girl on the right and her middle school friends.  She was also in the selfie pic I posted earlier.

I hesitated to put this one up now, before I’ve finished more of the series, because it’s pretty negative and the series isn’t supposed to be negative.

I was kind of in a mood when I drew it.

I promise she’s not normally a kid that gets in fights.

This was just a really bad day for her.

The next one will be more pleasant.

I promise.

I actually chose this pose to show some action, to show the two figures directly interacting with each other in a realistic pose, to show angry expressions, and to oppose the stereotypes that only boys ever fight.

 

Bear and Coyote

And here’s something completely different.  Bear and Coyote. I think Coyote shouldn’t have stolen Bear’s fish. But Coyote, being the trickster he is, will get out of it somehow. smiley 15

Full Disclosure:
I should mention that, although this is in a tribal style with Native American folklore characters, I’m not a member of any indigenous nation.  I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking I identify as a Native Artist.

I don’t plan to do any more in this style because I’m worried that it counts as cultural appropriation.  I did this one because I think the style is beautiful and I wanted to see what I could do with it.  I really like how it turned out and it’s my own idea and my own story, but it isn’t in a style I have a cultural connection with.  I don’t want to upset anyone and I can see how it might, so I’ll limit myself to just this one.
