Velocitas and Firmitudo (Velocity and Strength) by Nakilicious Velocitas and Firmitudo (Velocity and Strength) by Nakilicious
In August, I saw Sigmar Polke’s Eight Curlicue Pictures (all made in 1986) at the Herrenchiemsee Castle. I originally wanted to draw a series of twelve pictures, featuring the elements of Polke's drawings on the outside, surrounding globes of imaginary worlds. But then the first one turned out like this:
Providentia (Providence) by Nakilicious

The second one - this one - was inspired by this gryphon I found here on dA:

Gryphon by Pyreness

I named it "Velocitas and Firmitudo", after one of Polke's drawings -- those are:

Ratio (Vernunft)
Providentia (Voraussicht)
Alacritas (Eifer)
Velocitas und Firmitudo (Schnelligkeit und Stärke)
Acrimonia (Schärfe)
Virilitas (Männlichkeit)
Experientia und Solertia (Erfahrung und Geschicklichkeit)
Audatia (Mut)

Made with biro, black pens, and copic markers. DIN A4. The original artwork is also for sale, if you are interested.
