Im so tired.... by DJ88 Im so tired.... by DJ88
listen to this while viewing/reading [link]

".... I've been running through these dead woods for what seems like an eternity..the trees,nothing but dry standing cadavers feeding the flames that are just behind........I've been Chocking on the black smoke, trying to dodge the ever nearing embers, dancing around the sky as if they're laughing at me.... taunting me.... I can almost hear their laughter....... I cannot move anymore, let me lie here.... let me sleep........ let the ashes cover me like a blanket......No. I must go on, I must outrun this inferno.... I'll raise up and take a few more steps....but I cannot.......let me lie here...... let me catch my breath........ I'm soo tired....I cannot breath, my lungs are burning..... just let me lie here, for a little while.......then I'll try again..."

-Lionessa



Well..... I couldn't figure out any sort of background to give to this drawing that has been sitting on my comp for a few days..... so I just threw this together. I liked it too much to abandon it. As I've been doing with most drawings as of late.


Oh the colors for this lioness, I took from a photo of a white lion, the only reason why she appears red, is because of her surroundings and mood. So she's not a fantasy lioness, she's pretty natural.

This pic makes me wanna take deep breaths.....


yeah.

may i say, when you draw in your style, it beats anything you draw in "disney" style (though you lion king stuff still rules, lol)

It's beautiful and makes me think about "African Cats" from Disney... The beautiful and strong Layla and her heartbreaking story... The restless warrior who fought 'til the end... It's her I saw in your drawing...

The eyes of this really beautiful lioness are so expressive... And your text to this picture fixes more than well .-.
I can really imagine how she's feeling now...
Great artwork! I very like the shadows of the trees here...
