There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

The third one, I think, with the black-and-white being a close second. I like the ”wash” style of these - they remind of a sumi-e watercolour painting.

@LandSeaLion : Thank you for your opinion... Procreate is a fantastic drawing software which almost makes us forget the paper. Fortunately this software doesn't know how to draw a line (for the case here to represent the animal), it is and it will be always the hand !

The Hindu Goddess Durga is variously depicted as having a lion or a tiger as a mount.

Example from the Met Museum:


*This image is copyright of its original author


Quote:The goddess Durga, wielding an array of weapons in her ten arms, slays the buffalo demon Mahisha, who now reveals himself in human form. Durga plunges a trident (trisula) into his chest, whilst her lion mount (vahana) mauls his arm. To her left stands Lakshmi who holds two flowers while on the right stands Saraswati holding a vina. Dancing in the lower left is Ganesha with his rat vehicle at his feet, while to the right Skanda sits astride his peacock. All is staged on a dais supported with lion-feet and framed by a decorative arch on fluted columns. An inset painted panel evokes Victorian architectural decoration in the academic manner, but with Hindu deities replacing classical philosophers and muses.

Another example from the same museum:

Quote:The devotional text of the Devi Mahatmya culminates with the death of the demon Mahisha at the hands of the goddess Durga. Late in the battle, Mahisha takes the form of a man, but Durga cuts him to shreds with arrows and breaks his sword and shield. At this point the demon transforms into the elephant seen here. An inscription on the back of the work clearly identifies this rarely depicted moment in the epic conflict between good and evil. The distinctive treatment of Durga and especially her tiger suggests this painting was created by an artist known as the Mankot Master who produced an important early corpus of work in the tiny kingdom, not far from the Basohli court.
