Compromised

Posted May 25, 2020, 3:25:25 AM

While I mostly do dragon art and, as of late, landscape studies, roughly once a year I get motivated enough to make fan art of something, and it seems this year that would be for She-ra and the Princesses of Power, Netflix's reboot of the older She-ra series. I love the show a ton- they tooka show where all the characters were color swaps of one another and made a cast of uniquely crafted characters, diverse not only in their skin tones, but in their body types, percpectives, sexualities... it was pretty episodic and cheesy in the first season, but with every season it got better, more serious, and more nuanced. If you're a fan of cartoons, legit LGBT+ representation, or female designs that finally aren't meant to be eye-candy before they are functional, I'd reccomend it. Also, if you're wanting to watch it, its probably best not to check this piece out much further because it is a bit spoiler-y :') As a side note, rainbow lighting on a pale surface is a horribly work intensive idea, I now understand why people don't try to use it in a serious manner.

I made this between the fourth and fifth season, and was aiming to innclude a lot of symbolism from the show, from the title to the color choices to the setting. If you've seen through the fourth season, I'm sure it's fairly obvious though, haha.

Art belongs to me, She-ra belongs to Netflix and such

      Thanks! There's parts of it that still feel off to me, but that makes sense considering how seldomly I draw humans.

      Haha, thank you! There certainly are a lot of different colors for sure.

      Thanks! Humans aren't something I draw often, so their faces can come out weird sometimes, I'm glad I got hers done well Smile
