Illustration Friday: fierce



Did somebody say fierce?




My submission for Illustration Friday's fierce is a small 2"x 2 1/2" rough for Walrus Pictures and an improved version of this was used for their videos and films.
I mean " fierce" in the snap your fingers and "You look fierce" kinda way :)

Fierce in a high-fashion, metro-sexual walrus kind of way, of course.
