A Princess by Title and Fate – Jehnna from Conan the Destroyer

Standard

This is a starstruck, nostalgia filled point of view but to us, the 80’s are home to many wonderful classics of modern entertainment cinema.
And one of those pearls is Conan, the Destroyer from 1984! What’s not to love about this movie? Dark fantasy, action and such an iconic cast!
Definitely a movie to re-watch with a bowl of popcorn and forget about the heat or whatever it is outside.

As part of honouring one of our favourite movies ever, we drew Princess Jehnna, young and childlike and so naïve to the ways of the world.

Maybe next time, we’ll draw Conan :D?
Have a wonderful weekend everyone and like always,

★stay inspired★

PS: We want this movie in 4k so we can study all the details thoroughly!

A Portuguese Folktale: The Envious Queen

Standard

After such a long time, we are very happy to once again share with you all another Portuguese Folktale!

 We also decided to divide it into two parts because we wanted to portray the two main characters in this story: the innocent young girl and, like the title says, the envious queen.

The theme of an older woman being jealous of a young one’s youth is a popular theme throughout many countries traditions and typically the odds are against the more mature protagonist.

Will it be different this time? Without further ado, we present you:
