Hero by lishtar Hero by lishtar
She has the biggest pride both on her head and her legs
And she will sweetly smirking down on you while admit herself that she is the most beautiful thing


My submission entry for my college exhibition.

Theme : Hero.
But why I gave the bleeding whore as its image?.
The most essential thing about Hero nowadays is Honesty. We're not talk about Heroes in the past which of course, won't be found now. But from my point of view, Hero is somehow who could proudly admit themselves. Those braveness... is absolutely awesome.

Yeah yeah I know it's kinda sensitive image. But it's important for me to keep this idea, and its kinda testing out my brave to hold this concept and proudly show it to you all.

Maybe the idea and concept of this pic still too raw and you can gimme some better suggestion, I'm open myself :)
And no..not yet to Mature Content until someone told me to for I'm wracking someone's brain and innocence.

PS. I'm using my Original Character design, Valkyrie the killer prostitute [link] and adjust some or her style [and changing her current color palette]. Becoz I know she's the most suitable one for this concept :)

Special thanks to

for the spirit so I could finish this pic in only 1 nite. Thank you so much :heart::heart:

Hm....somehow i see less of a whore and more of just a girl who's menstruating a lot O_O;;

I like the colour palette though.

thank you for commenting..
It's kinda of raw concept when I work at this pic, but I know I didn't gave the 'whore' impression much on it, that's why it still lead to so many missconcept and misscommunication when I show this specially at the exhibition ^^;

but it's kind of joy to got so many speculation and shared concept from anyone who saw this to make me improved, so I keep to hold the result. Thank you for sharing your though :)

Is she being proud of her womanhood, I don't totally get it. But, it is very thought provoking.

I'm bad at english explanation, though it still had the concept being proud of ourselves.

I guess she has her days and it shows some proud of the slight taboo of the period and the sexual power involved there, emancipation and so forth .

teknik wise, mantap gann! konsep wise. mm.. inti konsepnya oke. cuma belum dlm mgkn? :D

mata pertama liat, nangkep darah. and there's nothing else to drew my eyes at. dan pemikiran ku, sebagai viewer, berhenti di "she's a whore. lalu?" dan stuck. kesan ';pride' nya gak kerasa.

inspirasinya kan 'honesty'-self acceptance. dari situ ngambil sub-konsep 'a whore who is proud of herself'. tapi then again, gara2 sub-konsep itu, fokusnya jd ke 'whore', dan konsep awal ttg self acceptance ga seberapa keliatan?

Well. i have lots of rambling, if you want to hear. hahaha. but thenn. its tiring to read long comments aint it? ;p

I really like the picture, but until I read your artist's comment box, I perceived it as "virginity". Mungkin karena sekelilingnya putih dan cerah, yang bikin kesan "pure" dan "innocent".

Tapi setelah baca artist comment-nya, me jadi inget quote ini; "We become geishas not to pursue or destiny, we become geishas because we have no choice." (ga nyambung ya? ya sutralah *gajelas*)
