Inktober 2020- Part 5 & 6

Once again I am doing a dual-prompt post. Today’s drawing is inspired by the prompts “blade” and “rodent”.

She is also heavily inspired by my favorite television show and comic “Sailor Moon”. In the Japanese version of the story, her name is “Usagi Tsukino” which means “Rabbit of the Moon”. We have the “Man in the Moon” in the West, and in Japan it is a rabbit making mochi in a mortar and pestle. Which not only inspires her name, of course, but also the drawing/tattoo on her back.

I picked a stylized drawing of Usagi holding a katana BLADE and drew her with a number of tattoos including a rabbit. I thought rabbits were RODENTS but they are actually of the taxonomic order “lagomorph”, so this drawing for the prompt “rodent” was made under that false assumption of rabbits as rodents. You learn something new every day. ;-)
