Panther Queen by thundercake Panther Queen by thundercake
Illustration for one of my classes. We had to write a fairy tale and illustrate it.

This is my story, called the Tale of the Panther Queen: [link]

I'm not unhappy with how the picture turned out. It is way darker than I am used to.. it had to be that way to fit with the theme of the story though. =p

But if she was always blind, how did blinding herself mean she could not return to her kin?

That was such a cool story! It was so captivating, like a real legend that would be told around a fire in some ancient tribe. The illutration is perfect and Oe is very pretty!

It belongs to a world I created, in which it is a tribal story passed down by a group of nomadic magic users.

The night atmosphere is....I'm running out of adjectives, dammit, well, it's good with the dark blues and purples. The detail of the jungle background is incredible, and I especially like the little waterfall.

I think you did a good job with the darker tones and the space behind the characters is really well painted. The dark purplish reds you worked it balance all the cool colors
