His knight in shining armour



A bit of stereotype busting. Digital painting.

  1. ça aurait pu être cela, les hommes en jupon aurai certainement eu cette attitude, devant des soldats femmes, ah si ç avait pu être la réalité, aujourd'hui nous n'aurions pas cette vie

  3. I always like story about female warriors and their weak males.
    Especially I love when they wear reversed clothes. ;)

  5. Stereotype maybe, but very effective! Could'nt be a cover for a story of yours, also very short?

  6. You are a very talented artist, And I like that you do not always play to the common denominator. But I will comment that in a gender reversed society, I imagine that over a period of time, as sports and rowdy activities are discouraged for boys and encouraged for girls, the females would morph into the taller and more muscular physical specimens. So,the only thing that would make your drawings better for me is a reversal of size, as well.

    1. Everyone's different, and I regularly get comments from people who like pictures of X, Y or Z rather than exactly what I do. It can't be avoided.

      Personally I don't believe that females would in general become taller and stronger than men, just because they do more sports.

    2. agreed... males are larger than females due to male using bulk, strength and aggression to procure mating rights. This is also true for all other animals where the males are generally bigger than the females. Our masculine bulk is set in stone, so to speak... but we've moved on from the 'fighting' bit.

      top marks for another excellent image! :)

    3. I wonder if... in the genderquake, would it be routine for the women to seek a husband younger than themselves?

  8. "But Sir Lorraine... that mouse must be 4 inches long... you could be bitten and taken ill!"

    The young knight thought to Herself,

    "Great Penthesilea's Armour! The pathetic male sex would be in tatters crying if a leaf messed their makeup! Yet 'tis an opportunity to acquire a kiss from this dainty mansel under moonlight..."
