A more saturated take on the first Hornet boss fight!
I've spend hours aching over this piece, the finished piece isnt exactly what I imagined but I'm happy to have finished it!

Edit: I've enabled the download on this, since I've had a couple questions about using this as a background :)

woooo this is so cute...

the whole composition is amazing, its so smooth and dynamic. the color put melancholy vibe on them.

their hollow eyes still full emotion and their movement is so smooth. great one <3

Ahh thank you so much! After you work on something for so long, it starts to lose the impact I was originally going for the more times I look at it, I'm really happy people have enjoyed this and have taken from it what I had originally intended! Thank you again! :heart:

I can hear this picture... (No but seriously, this is such a beautiful and dynamic artwork. :meow: )

Aha, I can still hear her theme when I look back at this, it was the main inspiration for the drawing :D Thank you!

Her voice is forever carved in my soul... Or more accurately, in the soul of all the innocent moss creatures that I slew to fill my focus gauge before every try. XD

Aha I still have flashbacks to her second fight, she really doesn't mess around :D

Surprisingly enough, I was expecting to struggle a lot with the second battle, considering that I spent an entire evening on the first one, but I actually beat her on my third try. I couldn't believe it. XD I think that I got lucky with the way she placed her spiky traps, haha... At the very least, Silksong will give us the chance to kick butt as Hornet instead of the other way around. :meow:

Aye, the second battle wasn't an issue when I was playing through the game but whenever I'm doing it in the pantheons it completely ruins me and I don't know why ahaha

To be honest, I have yet to touch the pantheons. Considering that the only bosses that I beat first try were Uumuu, Xero and Gorb (all hail Gorb), I don't think that I'm cut out for the challenge. XD

QuailSoup's avatar

Sorry for the late reply, what kind of video is it for? :)
