Finally finished this traditional drawing I started well before summer, but just never got to finish it. As it is inktober month again, I thought it was fitting time to get it done ^^. I will maybe try to do more traditional stuff for inktober if I can, but I won't stress myself with strict deadlines if it becomes too much. Inking A4 sized illustration is so slow, at least for me.
Again, this drawing and character is inspired by and loosely based on Finnish mythology. Her name is Louhi or Louheatar, and she is a mighty queen and witch of the land of Pohjola, and also called the mother of wolves. She can change her physical shape and appearance and also conjure powerful spells to attack her enemies. In one poem, her opponents are trying to escape her by a boat after they have stolen her treasure. Enraged, she takes the form of an eagle and attacks them. Inspired by this description of her taking animal shape, I got the idea for this drawing. I also admire that essentially she is a strong woman, who just knows what they want and won't let anyone to oppress herself or take advantage of her. Sadly those traits made her a wicked witch character in the poems, while male characters with similar traits were heroes. So I wanted to portray her in a bit different, more positive light without the burden of stereotypical/unequal mindset of the original poems.
Tools: bright gold ink, sakura picma mikron/copic multiliner ink pens and white gel pen.
