The Morrigan: Invocation by VanHeist The Morrigan: Invocation by VanHeist
hot on the heels of the last piece, another deliciously sloppy colored sketch of Gogo and the Greenshirts, this time rockin' a haka prior to the match (a practice recently popularized and fuggin' intense to watch).

I'm no scholar of the art, and without sound a haka isn't quite as powerful, so here's a clip helpfully provided: [link]

War cries, battle songs, and even their lesser cousins, sports cheers, can be a bone-chillingly powerful and primal human tradition. Groups of us chanting in unison? Screw you, nature. We're scarier :P

...even if we're not summoning a cloud of darkness, apparently.

after seeing the min-arc drawings for this rugby story I've concluded that no living man can defeats a gogo in open combat

Surprisingly, even before I read the inspiration behind this picture, I was thinking that this looks a lot like a haka. Surprise, surprise, that's what it is.
A lot of blood will be shed today...

How about thinkin' of this scene with Gogo dressed in her "Native Gears" - face paint optional, of course...

A "fear-sexy" sight for sure!

Ah the Haka. The warrior's welcome and tribal warning. We have something similar in Britain, it's called afternoon tea. Nothing scarier ;)

Anyhoo, lovely piece...really captures that vibe.

Gogo is a cool badass... but she could use some english lessons. XD.

Yeah, without the sound a haka isn't nearly as powerful.

Which makes it all the more impressive how much power you've managed to get in to the picture :O

Love it.
