i couldn't pick just one word, had to save a whole column of them. they include hero, heroic, heroically, heroine and heroism.
for my art though, it is definitely heroine (a female hero; the female character in a play, novel, etc.) that i wanted to art around. what better character than myself, right?
what would she wear, wings of course! hum, would that be dragonfly, butterfly or bumblebee? the more colorful butterfly is what i went for. the large H on her chest, well she has to have an initial, right? and it made me laugh. her saying, enjoy the simple pleasures. perfection in a page. playful, fun and heroic if you ask me...
